Heart Rhythm Week is being held to raise awareness to arrhythmic conditions and ask that you understand your own heart rate better.
By doing pulse checks you can make sure that the beat is regular – although not everyone is sure of how to check it properly.
I know that in the past when I’ve checked my pulse I’ve found it straight away – and other times couldn’t find it. Cue the vampire jokes …
Thankfully there will be Pulse Check Clinics on hand and Cardiac Cafes to teach you the right way to do it.
If you or a professional does find an irregular heartbeat it’s worth doing the palpitation checklist and finding out more about it.
To take part in the week you can download ‘Know your Pulse’ posters and get involved with setting up a ‘Put Pulse into Practice’ help section.
