I bit the bullet and bought an Alivecor gadget at patients day.I used it a few times to check I was doing it correctly and stowed it away in a drawer so I wouldn't obsess! At the weekend , my husband who has had a few runs of tachycardia over the last few years, went into A.F. we recorded it on Alivecor , printed it out and took it to the G.P. who was more than happy to accept the reading. So prompt action has been taken and all the usual tests set up without having a monitor. How unbelievably lucky was that!
Mind you I'm a bit miffed that I can't even have A.F. in peace. Hope it's not going to be like man flu. X
