The objective of this study is to identify ischemic stroke patients at high danger for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (pAF) during 72 hours Holter ECG may be helpful to individualize the allotment of delayed ECG checking times, at present not regularly applied in clinical practice. Atrial fibrillation (AF) as a typical reason for ischemic stroke is related with expanded mortality and disability. In a forthcoming multicenter study, the main analysable hour of crude ECG information from delayed 72 hours Holter ECG observing in 1031 patients with intense ischemic stroke/TIA introducing in sinus musicality was grouped by a computerized programming (AA) into “no danger of AF” or “danger of AF” and contrasted with clinical factors to foresee AF during 72 hours Holter‐ECG. pAF was analyzed in 54 patients (5.2%; mean age: 78 years; female 56%) and was all the more often distinguished following 72 hours in patients arranged by AA as “danger of AF” (n = 21, 17.8%) contrasted with “no danger of AF” (n = 33, 3.6%). AA‐based hazard definition as “danger of AF” stayed in the expectation model for pAF location during 72 hours.
