About Microlife BP Monitors - PAD (Pulse Arrhythmia Detection)

A Microlife blood pressure monitor with PAD technology detects irregular heart beats during a blood pressure measurement. If pulse irregularities occur during the measurement, the PAD symbol is displayed at the end of the measurement.

As a rule this is not a case for concern: however, if the symbol appears more frequently (e.g. several times per week on measurements performed daily) or if it suddenly appears more often than usual, we recommend you inform your doctor. The device does not replace a cardiac examination, but serves to detect pulse irregularities at an early stage.
