Heart Rhythm Week 2015

1-7 June
Detect, Protect, Correct
 

Join us in raising awareness of how to Detect, Protect and Correct arrhythmias.
 

Together, we can work to secure early diagnosis and improve outcomes for the many millions of people across the globe affected by arrhythmias like AF.

Are you a sudden cardiac arrest survivor, or have you raised funds to place an Arrhythmia Alliance Defibs Save Lives AED in your community, school or workplace? We need your support ahead of Heart Rhythm Week 2015
 

Arrhythmia Alliance is inviting our supporters to share a short film with us ahead of Heart Rhythm Week 2015, telling us why a change is needed to improve sudden cardiac arrest survival and ensure better access to AEDs for use in the event of an emergency. Films can be as long as you like, ideally between 30 seconds and 1 minute in length, perhaps even shorter if you would like to share with us via Instagram or Vine, just remember to tag @KnowYourPulse!
 

Please email hattie@heartrhythmalliance.org to learn more or to share your completed videos.

'Now is the Time'

 

Major Announcement on the management of sudden cardiac arrest

Arrhythmia Alliance is holding a series of political events in each country of the UK to coincide with our Annual World Heart Rhythm Week. At each of these events we will be launching a report to tackle the disparity in accessing lifesaving Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) across the UK. The report will include a step-by-step guide, which both policy makers and professionals with an interest in Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) care can follow to push forward change and we would like to invite you to attend.
