Heart Rhythm Week 2016, 6-12 June
Together, we can work to secure early diagnosis and improve outcomes for the many millions of people across the globe affected by arrhythmias.
The Pulse Check Challenge
We are encouraging everybody to take on The Pulse Check Challenge during World Heart Rhythm Week.
We are looking to undertake the most number of pulse checks in a week, and to make the public more aware of their pulse and heart rhythm.
If you would like to take part, use an AliveCor Kardia Mobile ECG or take a manual pulse check and send us:
* How many pulse checks you took
* How many irregular heart rhythms were found
* Your #KnowYourPulse pictures
Let us know if you will be taking on the challenge, email Sarah Edmunds.
Heart Rhythm Week 2015 helped raise awareness of how to Detect, Protect and Correct
heart rhythm disorders.

What can I do to help?
There are many ways to get involved with Heart Rhythm Week:
1. Give information to your friends and family.
2. Display information in your local community by organising an awareness display in your local medical centre, nursery, hospital or leisure centre.
3. Share your story - Heart Rhythm Week generates a lot of media interest nationally, regionally as well as locally, share your story to help others.
4. Volunteer your time and support a pulse check event in your local leisure centre or workplace.
5. Fundraise, for example baking some goodies to sell at school, work or from your own home to help raise funds.
