Heart beats as a result of the impulses generated by the natural pacemaker in the heart. In a normal heart this produces a normal rhythm. AF is when the impulses are generated from different places in the atrium of the heart. This causes the heart to beat irregularly.
This can cause symptoms including:
- palpitation (being aware of your heart beat)
- shortness of breath
- dizziness or feeling faint
By recording 30 seconds of your heart beat, we can detect whether you may have an issue including Brady- and Tachycardia, Atrial Fibrillation (AF), Arrhythmia or Syncope. In the event that a concern is raised, you would need further investigation.
