Half a million Aussies live with Atrial Fibrillation (AF). People with AF are at much higher risk of stroke and heart failure. The COVID-19 pandemic has meant we are staying at home. However, it’s vital we don’t put our heart health on hold.
Watch this video to see how our #FeeltheBeat app works to take a pulse reading from a finger over your camera lens. An irregular heartbeat causes 6,000 strokes every year. Find out if you are at risk of Atrial Fibrillation.
As part of #AFAwarenessWeek2020 hearts4heart will be launching the Feel the Beat app which allows you to check the health of your heartbeat from the comfort of your home to see if you are at risk of Atrial Fibrillation.
Heart Buddies are peer support groups that provide an opportunity to connect with like-minded people. We have general catchups as well as guest speakers, guided meditations and more. During the COVID-19 pandemic- we are facilitating them via zoom. For further details and topics please visit our FaceBook page.
Please see hearts4heart ‘Time to Change the Beat’ White Paper, which details strategies to improve the detection and management of Atrial Fibrillation.
