  1. In studies assessing implantable loop recorders, which of the following best describes the difference in the detection of AF compared to decection with conventional methods?
    No difference between implantable loop recorders and conventional methods
    A significantly greater rate of detection with implantable loop recorders after 12 months
    A significantly greater rate of detection using conventional methods after 12 months
    A significant rate of detection with implantable recorders observed only after 24 months
  2. Should long-term cardiac monitoring to detect intermittent AF be used in a patient with a contraindication for anticoagulation?
