BP Machines Video by Dr Alex Meyer

At our last partners event that was on Thursday 6th December 2017 Dr Alex Meyer, one of our partners from Yardley Wood Health Centre, gave us a presentation about an innovative project to replace our BP machines with new ones that automatically detect Atrial Fibrillation.

Atrial Fibrillation is a modifiable risk factor for stroke and is currently under diagnosed in many areas of the country. Improved identification and management will lead to a greater reduction in AF related strokes, potentially saving NHS and social care costs, as well as improving well-being and quality of life.

Dr Meyer has since created a video demonstrating how the new machine works in more detail, if you have any further queries on this please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
