Quick Overview

Microlife® WatchBP® home is a clinically-validated, home blood pressure measurement device
World's First Blood Pressure Monitors that can Detect Atrial Fibrillation (AF) & Validated for use in Pregnancy- Pre-eclampsia & End Stage Renal Disease (ERD)

Microlife® WatchBP® home is a clinically-validated, home blood pressure measurement device that helps patients adhering to guidelines. Many clinical studies showed the importance of home blood pressure measurement in hypertension management. For many physicians, however, the concerns about the quality of the home measurements remain a significant hurdle. The WatchBP home eliminates most of these concerns by being the world’s first, clinically-validated home BP measurement device with an implemented schedule that strictly follows ESH and AHA guidelines for self-measurement. In the “Diagnostic” mode, patients perform morning and evening measurements for 7 days, as prescribed.



Physicians can read out the data from the device or PC with the added software, at the next visit. Embedded ESH/AHA measurement schedule for accurate home measurement data. Diagnostic mode - 7-day implemented self-measurement schedule according ESH/AHA guidelines. Usual mode - Stores up to 250 regular measurements and display the average with the push of a button. Automated data tabulation and intuitive display of averages for morning, evening and multi-day measurement data. PC connectivity - Transmits BP measurement data to any PC via USB connectivity.

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.







Features

Embedded ESH/AHA measurement schedule for accurate home measurement data.

* Diagnostic mode - 7-day implemented self-measurement schedule according ESH/AHA guidelines.

* Usual mode - Stores up to 250 regular measurements and display the average with the push of a button.

* Automated data tabulation and intuitive display of averages for morning, evening and multi-day measurement data.

* PC connectivity - Transmits BP measurement data to any PC via USB connectivity.

Benefits:

Embedded Leading Medical Society measurement guidelines deliver accurate home measurement data physicians can trust

Reduce patient preoccupation with blood pressure by reducing measurements to once per week and seven days prior to each office visit

Automated data tabulation and intuitive display of averages for morning, evening and multi-day measurement data

Convenience

Diagnostic Mode- 7-day SBPM measurement program strictly follows ESH/ AHA blood pressure measurement protocols

Usual Mode- Store up to 250 regular measurements and display average with the push of a button.

PC Connectivity- Transmit BP measurement data to any PC via USB connectivity



Four Step Monitoring for the treatment of long-term patients of compliance and blood pressure control between office visits using WatchBP Home:

Step 1: Patients take the duplicate measurement once per week using Usual mode. Measurements are automatically stored in memory.

Step 2: Duplicate morning and evening measurements are taken on each of 3 to 7 days prior to office visit using Diagnostic mode.

Step 3: Home measurements displayed on WatchBP Home device are compared with in-office measurement taken using WatchBP Office

Step 4: Patient compliance and blood pressure control are checked and confirmed



In Practice

WatchBP home plays a valuable role in the long-term observation and management of controlled hypertensive patients. In-between office visits, patients can take a single duplicate measurement once per week using the “Usual” mode. One week prior to the next office visit, patients can use the “Diagnostic” mode to collect measurements for 7 days as prescribed by the ESH/AHA guidelines. The WatchBP home device with the stored data should then be shown to the physician at the next office visit. The home-measured data in either “Diagnostic” or “Usual” mode can then be directly compared with the office measurements.

Accurate for use in pregnancy and pre-eclampsia



Pre-eclampsia is defined as new hypertension and substantial proteinuria after 20 weeks gestation. Due to the unpredictable nature of pre-eclampsia hypertensive women must have their blood pressure measured frequently.

Most oscillometric blood pressure monitors underestimate blood pressure in pre-eclampsia. For this reason, oscillometric blood pressure monitors may only be recommended for use in pregnancy when specifically tested in this special patient group. The WatchBP Home allows pregnant women to measure their blood pressure at home which could reduce the number of hospital visits and may help to make motherhood safer.



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.
