While a simple pulse check can be the first step in detecting an arrhythmia such as AFib, continuous electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring – as seen with technology such as Zio by iRhythm -- is the best way to detect arrhythmias. Early diagnosis is critical for properly managing AFib and minimizing risk of an AFib-related stroke.
On May 15th, in recognition of Stroke Awareness Month, Trudie Lobban MBE will be available for interviews to discuss her personal family experience with cardiac arrhythmias, the importance of knowing your pulse, how to take your pulse, and ambulatory heart monitoring. Trudie will also share how iRhythm and Arrhythmia Alliance are teaming up together to help detect and treat irregular heart rhythms year-round.
