Microlife WatchBP Home Night Blood Pressure Monitoring System
Microlife WatchBP Home Night Blood Pressure Monitoring System




World's First Blood Pressure Monitors that can Detect Atrial Fibrillation (AF) & Validated for use in Pregnancy- Pre-eclampsia & End Stage Renal Disease (ERD)

WatchBP Home N: valuable measurements during the night Despite all arguments in favour of self-measurement of blood pressure it is not (yet) considered to be as reliable as 24-h ambulatory blood pressure measurement (ABPM) . There are some reasons for this but the most important is that with ABPM the nocturnal blood pressure can be determined.

Nocturnal blood pressure: Nocturnal hypertension and atrial fibrillation (AFIB) are the major risk factors for stroke. According to the National Stroke Association (www.stroke.org), AFIB is one of the leading risk factors for stroke. When AFIB is detected at an early stage treatment can be provided, which could prevent the occurrence of stroke. Fortunately, with innovative technology, screening for AFIB is now easier than ever.

In addition, many studies have shown that nocturnal (during the night) blood pressure measurement is the most reliable measure for predicting cardiovascular events. This means that if self-measurement of blood pressure could replace ABPM as a gold standard it needs the possibility of performing nocturnal blood pressure measurements. For this reason Microlife has extended the validated Home Watch BP Home with the possibility to automatically perform three subsequent nocturnal measurements: WatchBP Home N (octurnal).





Features

Benefits of the WatchBP Home N above 24-hour blood pressure measurement. Although the WatchBP Home might not be able to replace the ABPM it has some important benefits above ABPM:

Better sleep quality With ABPM patients often feel uncomfortable when wearing the device, complain about sleep disturbance and frequent subsequent measurements cause pain in the upper arm. All factors that may influence reliability of the performed measurements. With the WatchBP Home N only three measurements at night will be performed, which leads to less disturbance.

Cheaper ABPM is very expensive and labour intensive. An ABPM device costs about 10 times the price of a self-measurement device and a research nurse is required to hook on and off the device, to instruct the patients and to transmit the obtained data to the computer after measurement. More reproducible Although, ABPM is determined to be the gold standard in blood pressure measurement its reproducibility is poor , mainly due to the fact that measurements are only performed at one day. The WatchBP Home N allows patients to perform measurements on multiple days and night which will improve the reproducibility of all measurements.







Four Steps for long-term monitoring of blood pressure or treatment verification:

Step 1: Patients take duplicate measurements once a week using the Usual mode. Measurements are automatically stored.

Step 2: Before each office visit duplicate morning and evening measurements are taken on 3 to 7 days using the Diagnostic mode.

Step 3: The Nocturnal Mode enables measurement of blood pressure during sleep.

Step 4: Patients blood pressure and response to treatment can be checked and confirmed.

World's First Blood Pressure Monitors that can Detect Atrial Fibrillation (AF) & Validated for use in Pregnancy- Pre-eclampsia & End Stage Renal Disease (ERD)

WatchBP monitors with implemented Afib detection system allow patients to be screened for Afib during blood pressure measurement. The Afib detection system has convincingly proven its accuracy, and showed that it leads to increased detection of new patients with Afib when used in general clinical practice.

WatchBP Afib detects atrial fibrillation with high accuracy (sensitivity 97-100% - specificity 89%) as demonstrated in multiple comparative studies with ECG.



Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

50% of all patients have no symptoms- Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is an important, frequently occurring, cardiovascular risk factor that often remains undetected for too long. Patients with PAD have a three-fold higher risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and death. A recommended test for diagnosing PAD is performing ankle-arm measurements to assess the ankle brachial index (ABI). In general clinical practice ABI is often determined with a Doppler device. However, this method is time consuming and requires skills from the observer and therefore is not performed as well and as frequently as it should.



Early detection of atrial fibrillation can reduce the risk of a stroke by 68%

Atrial fibrillation (Afib)

Afib is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia occurring in 5% of the population of 65 years and above and in 14% among those older than 85 years. Afib leads to a 5-fold higher risk of stroke and is responsible for 20% of all strokes. Many people have no symptoms from Afib and therefore remain undiagnosed, whereas early treatment can reduce the risk of stroke by 68%.

WatchBP monitors with implemented Afib detection system allow patients to be screened for Afib during blood pressure measurement. The Afib detection system has convincingly proven its accuracy, and showed that it leads to increased detection of new patients with Afib when used in general clinical practice.





Recommended by NICE

The national institute for health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) officially recommends using the Watch BP Home A during routine blood pressure measurement for all GP’s in the United Kingdom.
