Hi. Looked at your video clip. I have LBBB. I can do radial pulse for 30 seconds, with a regular beat, then the next 30 seconds can be totally different so I always do 60 seconds. My Omron tells me I have arrythmia (useful) with a pulse of 40 which is not accurate because I then check the pulse and it is usually about 60.I was surprised yesterday because I had a visit to the foot clinic (can't manage own foot care at moment due to hip arthritis) the clinician did a doppler and picked up the arrythmia nicely! Fortunately I knew about it.
