Know Your Pulse
This video teaches you how to check your pulse, it only takes 30 seconds.
Know Your Pulse to Know Your Rhythm - it could save your life.
Is your heart rhythm too fast, too slow or jumping around (irregular)?
It could be an arrhythmia (heart rhythm disorder). Over a lifetime 1 in 4 of us will develop an irregular heartbeat or pulse. Learning to take your pulse to monitor your heart rhythm can help with early diagnosis.
Our Know Your Pulse campaign promotes the need for us all to be aware of our pulse. We hold regular KYP events where we conduct FREE pulse checks using a one lead mobile EKG device which detects heart rhythm and pulse, and confirms if yours is normal or AF suspected. AF Suspected EKG results can be directly emailed to you, to be taken and discussed with your healthcare provider.
Contact us if you would like to attend one of our KYP events or host one yourself.
