NHS Organizes National Heart Rhythm Week

In order to support the national Heart Rhythm Week, people living in Bradford have been encouraged to take get their heart rate checked. The NHS staff is doing all the efforts, which can make the campaign a big hit.

The NHS has kept the logo of the campaign for 2012 as `Your heart in your hands'. Main aim of the campaign is to raise awareness among people about heart stroke and other heart related problems. "We know that more than 6,600 people in the district have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AF) and we estimate that another 500 people could have this condition", said GP Dr Matthew Fay, who is the national head for AF and stroke prevention.

Routine checkups can save a person's life and will cost nothing. So, it is recommended that people should get their heart rate checked regularly, so that they can get to know more about the problem. Fay said that millions of Britons are unaware of the fact that human heart rhythm is similar to time bomb clock.

If one would not detect it on time, he can lose his life. The campaign's aim will be to inform people about warning signs about heart problem, so that they can take timely action.
