Know Your Pulse

You may be able to tell if you have a regular or irregular heart beat by checking your pulse. This is important because an irregular heart beat may be a sign you have a heart condition.

The British Heart Foundation Explains how you can check your pulse yourself. Visit their site here.

Why should you know your pulse?

Arrhythmia Alliance (A-A) is a coalition of charities, patient groups, patients, carers, medical groups and allied professionals. Although these groups remain independent, they work together under the A-A umbrella to promote timely and effective diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias.
