Hi I have a little ECG-style like device at home and it tells me whether I have a regular heartbeat etc. I noticed that the past few days it was irregular when I stood up, yet regular when sitting down. The report of an irregular reading is attached.Why is this?

Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

Can I please ask your age/gender and if you have any other medical conditions or allergies, or take medications?

Do you have any previous heart disease? Any palpitations, chest pain, breathlessness, wheeze, cough, dizziness, bleeding, nausea/vomiting, unusual sweating, etc?

I occasionally have chest pain, like stabbing pain

In that case, I do not suspect anything sinister or serious.

When you stand up, your blood pressure goes up a little bit and this might be the cause.

Also it could just be an artefact and not a true result.

So, if you don't have any symptoms at the moment, you can monitor this for now and see your GP if you develop any new symptoms.
