The Microlife Watch BP Home AFIB is an upper arm blood pressure monitor that has been clinically validated. AFIB is the technique that recognises atrial fibrillation. By measuring in the USUAL mode, the blood pressure monitor automatically screens for AFIB. In this mode, the WatchBP Home does 3x an automatic measurement with an interval of 15 seconds. Afterwards, you will see the average of these 3 measurements. This meter is mentioned on the list of approved blood pressure meters of the Dutch Heart Foundation. The Microlife Watch BP Home AFIB is rated with a 7.5 by the Consumers' Association. With this upper arm blood pressure monitor you can store 250 measurements in the memory. If you use the diagnostic mode, up to 28 measurements can be stored. When you measure in DIAG mode the blood pressure is measured according to the guidelines of the 'European Society of Hypertension. In this diagnostic mode you can take 2x 2 measurements per day for 7 days (28 measurements). At the end of this measurement period, you can analyse the measurements with your GP. A switch on the side of the device allows you to choose the desired measurement mode. The WatchBP Home measures according to EHS protocol (can only perform a 3-fold measurement, no single measurement).
Atrial fibrillation (or atrial flutter) is a heart rhythm disorder that causes the heart to beat irregularly and often too fast. This irregularity can sometimes disrupt the flow of blood and cause a small amount of blood to clot. This results in a clot or blood clot.
When such a blood clot detaches from the heart at some point, it enters the blood stream and is carried with the blood to the brain. There, the vessels are so small that further flow is no longer possible. This is when the clot seals the blood vessel, thus blocking further blood flow. Part of the brain tissue is then deprived of oxygen and dies. This is also called a stroke. This often results in permanent disability or even death. Microlife's patented AFIB technology can detect these irregularities and thus warn you in time. You can read more about AFIB here.
With the Microlife Watch BP Home you can calculate different averages. Naturally, you can view the average of all measurements in the memory but, in addition, you can also use the diagnostic mode to view the average of all morning and evening measurements.
The measurement data from the Watch BP Home can be transferred to your computer using the supplied USB cable and software. You can save your measurement data and print or e-mail it so that you can provide your doctor with a handy overview. The supplied software is easy to use. Please note that the software is only suitable for Windows.
What is unique about Microlife blood pressure meters is that this brand can function in conjunction with rechargeable batteries.

Microllife blood pressure monitors can! With a set of good rechargeable batteries you can save money in the long run. We offer you the possibility to buy a set of powerful rechargeable Duracell batteries (4 pieces - 2500 mAh) with your blood pressure monitor. These batteries can be charged approximately 400 times.
