Heart Rhythm Week, 2 - 8 June 2014
Here’s an interesting one. This week is “Heart Rhythm Week” so the call to action today is to “understand your own heart rate better”! While I make a joke along the lines of how I don’t have a heart, you can get started now by taking your pulse and just ensuring that the beat is regular.
The idea is to get used to the rhythm of your heart and understand it as detecting any irregular rhythm might be worth checking out as there’s a chance it could be arrhythmia.
