HEART HEART SCREENING: A 2-in-1 device, blood pressure monitor and EKG

Cardiovascular diseases, a big topic:

  • Arterial hypertension is the most common chronic pathology in France (2): 1 in 3 adults is hypertensive (3). Besides cerebrovascular accident (CVA), for which it is the first risk factor (4), hypertension can cause other cardiovascular, renal, or ocular complications.
  • Atrial fibrillation or atrial fibrillation (Afib) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia (5), which can lead to the formation of blood clots, which can lead to stroke and other complications. It multiplies the risk of cardiac arrest by 5 and the risk of stroke by 4 (6). Atrial fibrillation is favored by aging, obesity… but also and above all by the presence of hypertension (7). However, atrial fibrillation can occur asymptomatically and in occasional flares, making it difficult to recognize and therefore often undiagnosed and untreated.

Given the serious consequences that atrial fibrillation can have, it is important for those potentially at risk to regularly monitor their health with an electrocardiogram and blood pressure measurement at home.

Reliable blood pressure measurement at home

This monitoring is essential to detect and prevent cardiac pathologies. To enable this early screening at home for hypertension and atrial fibrillation, OMRON has developed the Complete, a 2-in-1 monitor that can measure blood pressure and simultaneously record a single-lead electrocardiogram to also detect possible cardiac arrhythmias (Afib , bradycardia, tachycardia). When these results are analyzed together, they provide a more accurate picture of a person’s cardiovascular health.

Two important measurements at the same time with ease

  • The Complete is a connected device that requires a smartphone and downloading the OMRON Connect app. Using the Complete is therefore very simple. The cuff should be placed around the arm. Then simply open the OMRON Connect app and follow the on-screen instructions to start an ECG recording. The smartphone must then be placed on the holder of the Complete.
  • Then you have to press the button [START] and simply place your thumbs on the top electrodes and 2 fingers (minimum) on each of the Complete’s side electrodes to start the EKG recording.
  • The blood pressure and heart rate values ​​are displayed on the monitor a few seconds later. Once the surgery is complete, the cuff is deflated.
  • The ECG waveform appears in real time on the smartphone screen and after the ECG recording is complete, the patient or caregiver will see the interpretation of the result in a clear and understandable way: normal, possible atrial fibrillation, bradycardia, tachycardia.
  • The blood pressure data is also automatically transmitted and displayed almost simultaneously on the smartphone.

Easy data exchange for Earlier and More Accurate Diagnosis: The Complete provides healthcare professionals with complete and accurate information (1) about their patients’ heart health to help them make earlier diagnosis and prescribe appropriate treatment. The patient can easily share their results with their doctor via the OMRON Connect application: the doctor thus has access to their patient’s heart data.

Clinical validation to ensure measurement accuracy: The Complete is clinically validated(1) to provide accurate and reliable blood pressure and ECG data. The precision of OMRON technology enables the detection of potential atrial fibrillation with 100% sensitivity and specificity. The interpretation of the ECG generated by the Complete algorithm, which results in a “possibility of AFIB”, is reliable with a sensitivity of 99% and a specificity of 97% compared to the doctors’ interpretation.

The doctor can therefore rely on the Complete’s measurements and data to support and confirm his diagnosis with complete confidence.
