WatchBP Home A Device

30th January 2013 by Louise Hudman

This guideline advises that the WatchBP Home A Device is cost-effective. It is a blood pressure machine that can detect an irregular pulse. It is fairly sensitive and specific for AF. Any positive result would need to be confirmed by ECG.

The idea is that people would be picked up early with their AF through routine BP monitoring.

So keep your eyes out – maybe coming soon to a surgery near you!

"I've tried simple templates or hard copies of locum packs before but find they so quickly become out of date. I like the way the NASGP's Standardised Practice Information Portal is easier to navigate and update than these paper-based systems."
