Abstract

Objectives: Hyponatremia and atrial fibrillation (AF) have been established as strong predictors for worse clinical outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF). However, little is known about hyponatremia in relation to the occurrence of AF. This study aims to investigate the possible relationship between hyponatremia and AF in patients with chronic HF and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF).
