The 新加坡六合彩开奖直播鈥檚 Mobile Health Unit travels around the country offering free heart health checks to members of the public. During a heart health check our expert nurses will check your blood pressure and your pulse and provide heart health information and lifestyle advice.

A pulse check could help detect atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heartbeat which can lead to heart damage or a stroke however you would be advised by our nurses to see your GP for more tests before a diagnosis is made. The good news is that with early diagnosis, atrial fibrillation is treatable. We would encourage people to have a regular pulse check or to learn how to do this themselves.
