Atrial fibrillation is the most frequently occurring cardiac arrhythmia with an overall high prevalence that ranges from < 1% in young, otherwise healthy individuals up to nearly 9% in elderly patients. However, atrial fibrillation is often not seen as being as important as ventricular arrhythmias in clinical care as well as health care research. Consequently, the perspective of the patient with atrial fibrillation has not been explored and documented. This study aims to explore the phenomenon of uncertainty in diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of atrial fibrillation and to examine relationships among uncertainty, seriousness of illness, social support, appraisal of uncertainty, health locus of control, and perceived health status in patients newly diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. The conceptual framework of the study is based on uncertainty in illness model. The study design is a descriptive correlational and cross-sectional survey design using an interview method. 120 study subjects will be recruited from the cardiology outpatient clinic and the outpatient clinic for anticoagulation therapy in MetroHealth Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio. The study subjects will be asked by scales for the study. The obtained data will be statistically analyzed by univariate and multivariate statistics including path analysis.
