Abstract

Hyperthyroidism is a relative uncommon but important cause of atrial fibrillation. The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of routine thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) determination in the emergency department (ED) in patients presenting to the ED with stable, new-onset atrial fibrillation. We derive a set of clinical criteria in which TSH is likely to be normal and therefore thyroid function evaluation deferrable to a different time from ED visit.
