NICE approved blood pressure monitor better detects irregular heartbeat


It's always nice to express an opinion but it's even better to review the science first! The Microlife product is very accurate and specific in detecting Afib. Much better than manual pulse.....Here are the research references: Stergiou GS, Karpettas N, Protogerou A, Nasothimiou EG, Kyriakidis M. - Diagnostic accuracy of a home blood pressure monitor to detect atrial fibrillation. J Hum Hyperten 2009;23:654-658. Wiesel J, Fitzig L, Herschman Y, Messineo FC. - Detection of atrial fibrillation using a modified Microlife blood pressure monitor. Am J Hypertens ??2009;22:848- 852.
