So I've been posted with a new cardiologist and to establish how often I have palpitations to see how often I need to take Tambacor I've been given a king of hearts monitor. So far I've recorded 2 or 3 palpitations and it started beeping after the last one I just did and came up with a F, I accidentally unplugged it and it started beeping and came up with the number 6 and the F was still there and it beeped again I'm really confused on what the number 6 meant since its only recorded 3 times and now it keeps beeping every few minutes and the F is still there?

The "F" means the memory is full although the "6" means it is capable of recording 6 more events and the beeping typically means the battery is low (five double beeps per minute). I posted a set of instructions for the King of Hearts monitor on HeartConnect but you can also find it here:

HH, would you check that URL, please? My internet explorer has a problem w/the website.

The URL is good. Note that it is a PDF file so your browser must be able to open PDFs. If not you will need the PDF add-in and make certain the settings are right. You can find some guidance here

There was a known problem with IE9 so you might try FireFox. Finally, you can always right click the link and click "Save target as" then download and open it from your computer using Acrobat.
