Hello, I went to GP today. I took along my Kardia...
Mmmmmmmm, I know, swanky!.... It's been my new toy for a week...
So I just showed her it in the box and asked "have you heard of these?" and she had, I opened my iPad and showed her a Kardia ECG I had sent off for analysis (because the Kardia app had labelled it "Unclassified" and advised me to get it looked at).
It showed bradycardia and that there were a lot of ventricular ectopics and of atrial ectopics. I had a few like this I could show her.
So, she looked at the first one, there was the brief analysis at the top and the EEG set out readably.
She looked at it in detail then started typing and said "You need a referral".
The Kardia was evidence I had never had before, showing how my heart can behave even wIthout AF. (And it showed that the bisoprolol is causing chronic bradycardia).
She is willing to refer me to the EP of my choice. We are hammering out the best way to get integrated care for my very complex set of conditions and the AF's interaction with them.
I want to thank everybody who shares their knowledge and expertise on this forum. including reviewing this and other useful equipment. I am so grateful. You are so kind and brilliant!
You have all made a big big difference to me, and to many others, and the Kardia is just one part of that!
