Current evidence base for atrial fibrillation (AF) screening is insufficient. An important finding in the STROKESTOP study was that non-participants had significantly worse outcomes. In a group of potentially non-participants feasibility of opportunistic screening in a domiciliary setting with municipality preventive home visits to citizens ≥75 years was investigated. Handheld ECG device was used by trained municipality caregivers followed by cardiologist assessment. Eighty-five percent consented to being screened, and seven of 477 screened were found with AF. Opportunistic screening in preventive home visits had a high participation rate and was feasible. Randomized trials are needed before making any firm conclusions.
