    • Abstract:
      B PURPOSE: b Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most commonly reported arrhythmia in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). LOS was longer in patients with AF compared to non-AF patients, 9.3 ± 15.3 vs. 7.6 ± 9.3, respectively; p-value: 0.008. B CONCLUSIONS: b Although atrial fibrillation is common in IPF, AF does not confer statistically significant difference in all-cause in-hospital mortality; however, IPF patients with AF tend to have longer LOS compared to IPF patients without AF.
