I decided to attend this event today in Preston and glad I did. There was a Doctor, Pharmacist, Cardiac Nurse and other people testing blood pressure and pulse. When I talked to the Dr and pharmacist they were very pleased to try out their Alivecor on me when I said I had AF. I had never seen an Alivecor before and thankfully I wasn't in AF. They seemed to think I was doing all the right things and on anticoagulants. They asked where I had heard of the event and I told them on the AF site, they said it was a great Association and seemed to rate it very highly. All the questions I asked I got the same answers this great forum had given me. Do you have to have an I phone to use alivecor as the gadget they had didn't seem to be a phone as it said alivecor on it and I had to hold it in my two hands. I didn't want to hold the queue up by asking them about it. I don't have an I phone just a Nokia but my daughter has one, could I download an ap from her phone onto an alivecor and use it without her phone? Sorry for being stupid about this but I am not good at phones etc as I only use mine to text and talk!!
