P02.07 PhD Day 2019, Aarhus University: Cardioversion of atrial fibrillation: Can we predict success using copeptin? The study aims to investigate if successful outcome after electrical direct current cardioversion of atrial fibrillation can be predicted based on the biomarker copeptin. Cardioversion is an important treatment option, which aims to reduce disease burden. However, cardioversion is not always successful, and recurrence of atrial fibrillation is present in 50- 80% of patients after one year.


Every randomized study need a Table 1 to summarize the characteristics of the included participants. The tables consist of multiple calculations of means with standard deviation, medians with quartiles or summarizes of categorical variables. This can however be very time consuming to calculate if done by hard. Especially, because you often want to make several subgroups etc. Some years ago I came across the R package tableone, which has now become my preffered tool for creating table 1’s.


As medical doctors we use descions tree every day. Many observations from studies have been condensed to a clinical scoring system which aid the clinican in taking descions about further investigations on a given patient.


Reflections on choosing the right endpoint and sample size for a clinical trial
