Pulse Check

Your heart beats on average 60-100 beats per minute.

Many things such as exercise, anxiety and even caffeine can cause your pulse to change, creating a feeling of a flutter or palpitations in your chest.

A simple pulse check can be a way of identifying if your heart is beating in a slightly irregular pattern. This can indicate a more serious condition such as Atrial Fibrillation, a condition of which more than 40,000 people in Ireland currently suffer from.
