“Thank you Qardio for saving my life.” Arthur, Rhode Island

“I bought a QardioArm to help monitor my wife’s irregular blood pressure after breast cancer, chemo and etc. Periodically I also checked my blood pressure which has always been normal. Last December however, I started to get irregular heart beat warnings and I started using the QardioArm daily. I went to my doctor with the irregular heart beat news. In his office everything was normal including my EKG. He suggested to see a cardiologist based upon the Qardio data.

The day of my cardio visit I was in Afib. After some testing my cardiologist saw some irregularity which he thought was minor but needed to do an angiogram to confirm if there was an issue or not. I was feeling fine and had no hints of any problems (I am 73 years old and in great shape). A simple angiogram wasn’t simple. I found out I had several major blockages and required 5 stents and 3 hrs of surgery. My cardiologist said I was a walking time bomb.

Thank you Qardio for saving my life.”
