Microlife A200 Artial Fibrillation & Blood Pressure Monitor

 

 

What is Atrial Fibrillation?

 Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia). Many people with AF have no symptoms, and AF only appears intermittently in some people with AF, making it difficult to detect.  It is estimated that up to 30% of Australians with AF are undiagnosedƗ.

 

Facts about Atrial Fibrillation

- It is the most common heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia) that may not show any symptoms and intermittent

- Hypertension and Atrial Fibrillation are the major risk factors for STROKE

- 3 out of 4 Atrial Fibrillation related STROKES can be prevented if you are already diagnosed.

- Early detection of Atrial Fibrillation enables a doctor to start appropriate treatment.

 

Why it is important to screen for AF?

 Not all arrhythmias are the same. AF is responsible for 20% (1 in 5) of stroke cases. 3 out of 4 AF related strokes can be prevented if you are already diagnosed. Screening and early detection of AF enables your doctor to start an appropriate treatment to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, along with associated complications.

 

 

How does the monitor work?

Microlife AFIB technology simultaneously measures blood pressure & detects Atrial Fibrillation. If atrial fibrillation is detected, an AFIB indicator is displayed on the machine. National Health Service in UK has recommended Microlife AFIB technology for opportunistically detecting atrial fibrillation (model WatchBP Home A).
