Atrial fibrillation

Did you know that if you have atrial fibrillation you are 5 times more likely to have a stroke? And that 1 in 5 strokes in the UK are caused by atrial fibrillation?

However, if your atrial fibrillation is diagnosed, there is medication that can reduce that risk?

Sounds easy, doesn’t it? But what are the symptoms of atrial fibrillation? How would you know you have it? And just how do you take your pulse accurately?

Well, in this week’s episode of the Penny’s Hill Practice podcast, we will cover these questions and more!
