What are people with Atrial fibrillation at risk for?
We certainly worry about PE with afib. Think about the pathophys: clots form in the atria an escape to a ventricle and are pushed out for systemic circulation. On the left they go to the brain (stroke) on the right they go where?
And there is a big mistake in your description of PE, I would re-read that section on what a PE is.
