Trudie spoke to Gary Burgham on Monday's Mornings & More to explain why we should all be more "pulse aware". * More than 2 million people have an arrhythmia in the UK * Nearly 500,000 people in the UK have undiagnosed AF, and are at increased risk of a debilitating or life-threatening AF-related stroke – the most severe type of stroke * Arrhythmias cause up to 100,000 sudden cardiac deaths each year in the UK; over 250 every day, more deaths than breast cancer, lung cancer and AIDS combined * 120,000 people experience unexplained loss of consciousness each year, commonly a sign of a heart rhythm disorder * There is no national programme of pulse checks or heart rhythm. Trudie recommends that we visit for further information.
