NICE approved blood pressure monitor better detects irregular heartbeat


Sorry but I am a CCU trained nurse. Taking a pulse in AF is inaccurate - there is frequently a deficit between peripheral pulses and actual heart rate. The only accurate determination of pulse in AF is by calculation from the ECG. I think this new device is designed to detect irregular heartbeats, not determine an accurate pulse.
