Arrhythmia Alliance News & Events
WORLD HEART RHYTHM WEEK 5-11 JUNE 2017 TAKE THE PULSE CHECK CHALLENGE – IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
HIGH RISK AF PATIENTS DENIED ACCESS TO LIFE-SAVING TREATMENT
Heart For Heart Initiative Launched To Improve Smartphone Performance of Arrhythmia Detection
Happitech, Arrhythmia Alliance and Bug Labs will announce the launch of the Heart for Heart e-health initiative. This initiative invites people to participate in the world’s largest crowdsourced heart health initiative by inviting them to contribute their heart rhythm data using the free Heart for Heart iPhone App.
Londoners advised to know their pulse during Heart Rhythm Week
Londoners are being invited to take a free, 30-second pulse check during Heart Rhythm Week. This simple check could prolong or even save their life. Heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) happen when a heart rhythm is too fast, too slow, or jumping around (irregular).

New patient survey results show 80% of AF patients say ‘YES’ to the freedom that INR self-monitoring gives them
The purpose of this survey was to help discover patient thoughts and opinions about INR self-monitoring versus clinic visits. Several trials have demonstrated that patient self-monitoring (PSM) by those on long term warfarin significantly improves time in therapeutic range (TTR) and leads to better management outcomes.
Arrhythmia Alliance Launches APPG-A
Arrhythmias are a critical health concern in the UK, but the necessary policy attention and resource focus is limited. There are many issues from a management and service provision perspective that need to be addressed for the benefit of patients and the NHS. A strong political voice is necessary to help raise these issues and help to effect positive change.
Combination of principal component analysis and optical-flow motion compensation for improved cardiac MR thermometry
The use of magnetic resonance (MR) thermometry for the monitoring of thermal ablation is rapidly expanding. However, this technique remains challenging for the monitoring of the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia by radiofrequency ablation due to the heart displacement with respiration and contraction. Recent studies have addressed this problem by compensating in-plane motion in real-time with optical-flow based tracking technique.
Pharmacists Demand Radical Reform of Care For People With Long Term Conditions
Community pharmacists must be able to routinely prescribe medicines for people with long term conditions and refer them directly to other healthcare professionals to ease the overwhelming demand facing the NHS says the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) in a new report to be launched at the House of Commons on 30th November.
