We would be looking to investigate further the ‘irregularly irregular’ pulse to determine whether this is just a pulse irregularity or arterial fibrillation. As a vascular specialist this can be assessed by palpating the radial pulse for one minute. The GP should be made aware of the irregularity with a view to assessing further for arterial fibrillation.
