Microlife WatchBP Office ABI

Microlife WatchBP Office ABI

The WatchBP Office ABI is a validated professional automatic office blood pressure device which can assess the ankle brachial index (ABI) fast and accurate. 

Ankle Brachial Index
The Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) is the ratio of the blood pressure in the lower legs to the blood pressure in the arms. Blood pressure that is lower in the leg than in the arm indicates blocked arteries (peripheral artery disease) The ankle–brachial index represents a simple, reliable method for diagnosing peripheral arterial disease .

WatchBP Office ABI
At present, ABI is commonly determined with a Doppler device. However, measurement with a Doppler machine is very time consuming and requires skills from the observer. The WatchBP Office improves and eases the screening of peripheral vascular diseases Microlife has developed the WatchBP Office ABI. With this validated device the ABI can be determined accurately and significantly faster than with the Doppler machine. Another advantage of the WatchBP Office ABI as compared to the Doppler Machine is that measurements are performed simultaneously and the method is much less influenced by the observer.

Ultimate cardiovascular screening device
Although the accent of the WatchBP Office ABI lies on the ankle brachial measurement the WatchBP Office ABI has more tools for screening important cardiovascular risk factors. Like the WatchBP Office and WatchBP Office Afib the device is delivered with double cuffs so that simultaneous double arm measurements can be performed for the screening inter arm differences. When the device is used in the Screen mode Atrial fibrillation can be detected when present.

Unique dual-cuff design for convenient, simultaneous both-arm blood pressure measurement for assessing inter-arm blood pressure differences. With one touch the device automatically peforms duplicate measurements according to guidelines while also screening for AFIB. Fast, easy and reliable automated ABI measurement, screening for peripheral aterial disease without Doppler.

Device corresponds to the requirements of the standard for non-invasive blood pressure monitor:

EN 1060-1
EN 1060-3
EN 1060-4
IEC 60601-1
IEC 60601-1-2

How to measure the ankle brachial index with the WatchBP Office ABI As with the Doppler measurements all measurements should be performed with the patient in supine position.

Screen mode
The guidelines for performing ABI prescribe that the ABI index should be determined at the arm with the highest blood pressure value. For this the screen mode should be used for performing simultaneous double-arm measurements.

ABI mode
After the arm with the highest BP value is determined one arm cuff (at the “R” cuff socket) can be replaced for the ankle cuff and blood pressure of the ankle and arm can be simultaneously measured in the ABI mode. After the measurement is performed the ABI will be automatically calculated by the device
