This Microlife BP B6 Connect with AFIB detection is a fully automatic upper arm blood pressure monitor. The meter is equipped with all modern techniques for a reliable measurement of the blood pressure. Of course this model has been clinically validated (BHS A/A protocol; highest rating). The meter has also been validated for pregnant women, obese patients, diabetes patients and for use in children. The meter is equipped with a colour indicator for your blood pressure level. This colour indicator is found in the form of LEDS on the side of the display. A unique aspect of this meter is the dual functionality of both the ability to pair the device with your smartphone and an app, allowing you to carry all measurements in your pocket, and the ability to use PC software and thus connect the device to your computer. This is done with a USB cable and the free downloadable Microlife software. This USB cable is included.
This meter is also equipped with the well-known 3/MAM technology and AFIB detection. 3/MAM stands for 3 x 'Microlife Average Measurement'. In this mode the blood pressure monitor measures the blood pressure 3 times in succession to obtain an accurate and reliable average of the current blood pressure. There is a 15 second rest between each measurement. The device then counts down from 15 to 0 and starts another measurement. The 3/MAM mode is easily activated via a slide switch on the side of the device. When measuring in 3/MAM mode, the device also screens on AFIB. This makes it possible to detect 'atrial fibrillation'. This is the vibration of the atrium; having AFIB is a risk factor for having a stroke. This meter has been clinically validated according to the BHS protocol and achieved an A/A rating (highest achievable). You can read more about AFIB here.
