Notice of the IHB/AFib Indicator and %IHB/AFib

Dear Customers,

We are pleased to inform you that we are planning to upgrade the IHB Indicator and %IHB to IHB/AFib
Indicator and %IHB/AFib soon. AFib (Atrial Fibrillation) is an arrhythmia that can lead to stroke and
other heart-related complications. Through a joint study with Jichi Medical University, we have achieved
100% accurate detection of AFib in a single measurement by changing the software parameters. Please
refer to the clinical paper at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/jch.13076/epdf .

  • Products with the IHB/AFib Indicator;
    UA-704, 705, 1020, 1020-W, 1030T, 1030T-W, 651BLE, UB-525, 542 and 543
  • Products with the %IHB/AFib;
    UA-767S, 767S-W, 767F, 767F-W, 767JP and UB-533
  • Products with the new software is expected to be available from August 2018 (you may receive the upgraded
    products earlier for some models).

    【IHB/AFib Indicator】
    When the A&D monitor detects an irregular rhythm during measurement, an IHB/AFib icon will appear on the display after measurement.

    【%IHB/AFib】

    For the products with %IHB/AFib, the frequency of IHB/AFib detection will be shown with a clear icon showing the frequency of the IHB/AFib detection.
    (1-9%, 10-24%, and 25%-100%)
    This screening function (patent pending) and indication is helpful for early detection and early treatment of AFib.
    If you have any questions in relation to the above, please contact our office for further clarification.
