What Is AFIB?

Atrial fibrillationÊÐ shortened to AFIBÊÐ is a heart condition where the heart rate becomes irregular and sometimes very fast. While a normal heart rate sits between 60 and 100 bpm, the heart rate of those suffering from AFIB can be much greater than 100bpm. It is caused by abnormal contractions of the atria, which prevent the heart muscle from relaxing properly between contractions.

AFIB makes it hard for the body to control the rhythm of its heart, and can greatly reduce its efficiency and performance. It can cause a range of problems including dizziness, shortness of breath, tiredness and heart palpitations.

How Accurate Is This Device at Detecting AFIB?

The AFIB algorithm used by the Microlife WatchBP has been independently clinically tested. The results show the device as detecting AFIB in patients with over 97% certainty.
