Story

Having been rushed to hospital because of bradychardia and diagnosed with complete heart block, I was stuck in bed for 11 days, unable to have a proper wash or a shower and having unnecessary heparin injections because I was bed bound and hooked up to a wall mounted unit. Would like to help those that are able to walk around with a mobile monitoring unit rather than being stuck in bed needlessly having blood thinning injections (some twice daily). This is in no way a reflection on the staff they were fabulous. Just a lack of funding for mobile units. Consider this - the average heparin injection costs between £10 and £175. 1 monitor could pay for itself within a week!
