The check that could save your life only takes 30 seconds!

Around 460,000 Aussies have atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat which can be fatal if left untreated. Shockingly around 30 percent of us have the condition and don’t even know it.

hearts4heart is joining with the Stroke Foundation in hosting free screening events around the country as part of Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Week (4–10 July), Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society’s global campaign to shine the spotlight on this hidden condition.
