Arrhythmia Alliance
World Heart Rhythm Week
4-10 June 2018

Although fainting or syncope is relatively common, in some cases it is a sign of an arrhythmia (heart rhythm disorder) and should not be ignored. Arrhythmias can affect people of all ages and for some, fainting may be the first indication of a problem. 1 in 2 people will faint at least once in their lifetime.
Help us to spread awareness of arrhythmias this World Heart Rhythm Week!
This Arrhythmia Alliance World Heart Rhythm Week, our focus is Take Fainting to Heart and we are asking our supporters to help us to raise awareness of arrhythmias by simply sharing and displaying information, holding an awareness activity or by fundraising and donating us.
