This chapter provides a summary of a landmark study in internal medicine. Should the heart rate target in patients with atrial fibrillation be strict (<80 beats per minute) or lenient (<110 beats per minute)? Starting with that question, it describes the basics of the study, including funding, study location, who was studied, how many patients, study design, study intervention, follow-up, endpoints, results, and criticism and limitations. The chapter briefly reviews other relevant studies and information, discusses implications, and concludes with a relevant clinical case.
