Weʼve raised £100 to help fund ambulatory heart monitoring for children with additional needs such as ADHD and Autism.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I work as a Senior Cardiac physiologist within a small Cardiology dept in Swansea, South Wales.
I am aiming to help raise funds for heart monitoring equipment that can be used in a non invasive manner with children who have ADHD/Autism.
The monitor is used by holding 2 very small metal pads that can be attached to an i phone and information is then stored on an app that can be downloaded and used at a future appointment or whenever it needs to be viewed etc.
I have already tried out the equipment on children with additional needs with great success.The traditional methods required the children to have ECG monitoring pads attached to their chests , which usually led to melt downs or even non attendance by this patient group.
All funds would be spent on the i phone monitoring equipment, with a view to setting up an i phone clinic so that these children and their parents have a direct contact with the hospital.
It would be wonderful to provide this service for these children alongside our more established ways of monitoring.
Many thanks for any contributions

About the fundraiser
Swansea , South Wales
I am a Senior Cardiac Physiologist hoping to set up a service that will use I phone ECG monitoring to help children with ADHD/Autism be monitored at home.This technology avoids the use of ECG electrodes on the skin, which some children with additional needs find distressing.
