Unusual heartbeat?

Don't let undetected AFib lead to stroke

Early AFib detection is essential. But as the risk of AFib grows with age, its often subtle or mistaken signs leave numerous individuals undiagnosed.

Discover the Sound of AFib

AFib is a heart rhythm disorder characterized by rapid and irregular heartbeats

A normal resting heart rate is 60-100 beats per minute.1 In contrast, those with AFib experience irregular and rapid heartbeats of more than 400 times per minute.7 This elevates stroke risk by five times, accounting for 20%-30% of all strokes.2

Risk factors and comorbidities associated with AFib3

Risk factors Risk factors

1 in 4 adults over 40 will develop AFib in their lifetime4

While regular health screenings are crucial, they can occasionally miss AFib due to its elusive nature. As the risk of AFib grows with age, its often subtle or mistaken signs leave numerous individuals undiagnosed. Symptoms to watch for include:

But AFib also often strikes with no symptoms and can slip under the radar during routine check-ups – that's why regular home screening is vital.
Stroke outcomes tend to be more severe in individuals with AFib than those without

In one study, doctors compared stroke patients with and without AFib, and they found the following:3

• AFib-related stroke patients stayed in hospitals for 50 days, compared to 40 daysfor others3
• Hospital discharge rates to go home, were lower for AFib stroke patients3
• There was a higher in-hospital mortality ratefor stroke patients with AFib, than those without3

The same study also found that patients with AFib were more likely to have a stroke again, in comparison to stroke patients who did not have AFib.3

What's more, AFib raises the stroke risk by 5 times

This stems from the heart's upper chambers not effectively pumping blood, potentially leading to blood pooling and clot formation.5

If a clot forms, it might travel through the heart, circulate elsewhere, and potentially block a brain artery, causing a stroke.5

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a leading cause of AFib in adults

It’s not uncommon for high blood pressure and AFib to both be present in the same person. In fact, one medical study found the following:

• High blood pressure was found to increase the risk of AFib by 50% in men and 40% in women6
• High blood pressure was the 4th risk factor after heart failure, aging, and heart valve disease6

Moreover, having both AFib and high blood pressure, increases the risk of stroke further.
Stroke prevention

Stroke prevention starts with awareness

Awareness is your first defense against AFib's silent threat. While sporadic checks might miss the mark, regular ECG and blood pressure monitoring offers a more comprehensive view of your heart's health. This not only allows your doctor to detect early risks of AFib and preempt serious complications but also optimizes treatment plans and tracks post-surgery recovery leading to less emergency visits.


Catch early warning signs accurately, at-home

Monitoring blood pressure and ECG at home plays a crucial role in stroke prevention. It empowers individuals to identify irregular heart rhythms early, allowing for prompt medical intervention and ultimately reducing the risk of stroke.

How it works

Instant, already interpreted results

Traditional ECGs rely on wired electrodes to track heart signals. OMRON advances this with portable devices featuring built-in sensors. By placing their fingers on the sensors, users can facilitate swift heart monitoring; the companion app instantly captures and interprets the ECG results, so there's no second guessing.

Sample results for 1-Lead via OMRON Complete

The ECG shows a heart rate of 50-100 bpm, indicating a regular rhythm without arrhythmias.

Sample results for 1-Lead via OMRON Complete

A heart rate of 40-50 bpm with a stable sinus rhythm has been detected. Monitoring for potential underlying issues is advised.

Sample results for 1-Lead via OMRON Complete

A 100-140 bpm heart rate is detected with preserved sinus rhythm and no signs of atrial fibrillation. Evaluation for underlying causes is necessary.

Sample results for 1-Lead via OMRON Complete

An irregular rhythm that suggests possible atrial fibrillation is observed. Further evaluation is recommended.

Sample results for 1-Lead via OMRON Complete

The ECG doesn't fit standard categories. Consideration of other arrhythmic presentations or external factors is necessary.

Sample results for 1-Lead via OMRON Complete

The ECG data is unclear, possibly due to external interferences. If symptomatic, immediate evaluation advised.

Electrocardiogram recording is an effective test to check the condition of the heart, but it does not express all changes and symptoms of the heart. If the analysis results of your records show "normal sinus rhythm" but you still have symptoms, or if "Unable to classify" or "Unable to analyze" is repeatedly displayed, please consult your doctor. Self-judgment and treatment based on analysis results is dangerous. Do not judge the recorded results (electrocardiogram waveform) or the messages displayed by analyzing them on your own; consult your doctor. Self-judgment based on analysis results may lead to worsening of symptoms.

Setting a New Clinical Standard in AFib & BP Monitoring

In 2020, OMRON's Complete emerged as the pioneering BP monitor, seamlessly integrating ECG capabilities. Rigorous clinical testing affirmed its precision in distinguishing sinus rhythm from AF during BP measurements.

Kyoto University's AFib Initiative with OMRON Complete

In a 2019-2020 initiative, Kyoto University partnered with OMRON, utilizing the Complete for AFib screenings in older populations. Alongside screenings, educational lectures were provided, enhancing awareness. Their research compared the life outcomes between those treated with direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs) for AFib and those untreated. Results revealed a concerning number of undiagnosed AFib cases. Notably, with proper anticoagulant treatment, the study showcased a significant reduction in potential strokes throughout patients' lives.

"I would honestly say it's a lifesaver"

“I was absolutely fascinated. I suppose I should have been shocked at the state of my heart, because it was up and down, but I wasn’t, I was just amazed as it just picked up on the irregular rhythm. It’s fantastic it really is! If I hadn’t been diagnosed that day in my GP’s office, I really don’t know what the outcome would have been. I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy my grandson’s childhood and I wouldn’t have that bond with him. I really think it saved my life. I’m very grateful for the device, very grateful. I would honestly say it’s a lifesaver. It’s so simple to use. You don’t have to go out of your way, it’s just there.

"A step forward in helping to monitor and reduce risk factors and stroke"

“Stroke is a public health concern and addressing risk factors such as hypertension (HTN) and atrial fibrillation (AF) is important in helping to reduce strokes in Wales. The OMRON Complete device with the OMRON connect App is innovative in measuring HTN, checking for AF and keeping a record of these results, which can be shown to GP and/or researchers. The use of this innovative technology is a step forward in helping to monitor and reduce risk factors and stroke respectively here in Wales.”

"Allow quick and clear identification of atrial fibrillation"

“The OMRON Complete device has been a game changer in undertaking health checks at our COVID Crisis Rescue Foundation Vaxi Taxi vaccination and health check pop ups across London. The devices are easy to use and allow quick and clear identification of atrial fibrillation.”

Dr. Sharon Raymond - Founder of Vcm-taxi, runs a pop-up health screening initiative in London

"Make people aware of their risk of stroke and heart disease"

"With high blood pressure (BP) and atrial fibrillation (AF) identified as the two biggest risk factors for stroke and heart disease, I believe that the combination of using one device to simultaneously measure BP and AF can only be a good thing from an identification and early detection perspective. With the number of people accessing regular clinical care significantly reduced as a result of the pandemic, making every contact count is of major importance. Having both BP and AF measured simultaneously using the OMRON Complete device, can only increase the number of people that will get to know their numbers and make people aware of their risk of stroke and heart disease.”
