We are delighted to offer a New Diagnostic Bundle!
What’s included in this Bundle Deal…
1. A&D Medical UA767SW Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor With AFIB+ (code: UA767SW)
The new, unique Afib+ technology allows patient screening for both Irregular HeartBeat and Atrial Fibrillation (AFib).
The A&D UA767SW sets the standard for personal use. It benefits from 2nd generation IHB technology, which now measures the frequency of IHB (Irregular Heart Beat) detection shown by icons and divided into different grades. This now enables the user/clinician to see how often IHB has been detected indicating the level of risk to the patient.
The ICGP has published a new document (February 2020) addressing the practical use of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in atrial fibrillation in general practice. Click here to read the full document: Practical use of Direct Oral Anticoagulants (DOACS) in Atrial Fibrillation in General Practice
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is not only a major risk factor for stroke, it also causes heart failure and cardiovascular death.(1-4). An evaluation of the new algorithm for detecting atrial fibrillation (AF) using a home blood pressure monitor. The Journal of Clinical Hypertension 2017. Read more.
Simple and easy to use blood pressure measurement
The UA767SW is the successor of the UA-767 series and sets the standard for personal use. This monitor is easy to use and features the %IHB function with memory upgraded to 60 readings.
The frequency of IHB (Irregular Heart Beat) detection is divided into different grades and shown by icons. You can see how often IHB has been detected (indicating the level of risk). If the grade is high, you should consult a doctor immediately. This %IHB function is for monitoring purposes only and should not be used for diagnosis.
To help attain an accurate blood pressure measurement, A&D monitors come with Cuff Fit and Movement Error indicators which light up when the cuff is applied too loosely or the user is moving, both of which can impact on the accuracy of the readings.
With a 60 reading memory capacity, the UA-767S provides an average of readings to try to eliminate the effect of anomalous measurements. This is useful because blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day, for example, after eating, exercise or smoking.

AFIB MONITOR – WHAT IS AFIB
Atrial fibrillation (also called AFib or AF) is a heart condition thats causes an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) and often abnormally fast heart rate. It increases the risk of a blood clot forming inside the heart. If the blood clot travels to the brain, it can lead to a stroke. People with Atrial Fibrillation are 5 times more likely to suffer a stroke. The good news is 66% of AFib strokes can be averted with treatment.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF ATRIAL FIBRILLATION
With Atrial Fibrillation, the hearts upper chambers will contract randomly and sometimes at high speed to the point where the heart muscle cannot relax properly between contractions.
Normally, the muscular walls will contract to force blood out and around the body, then relax so the heart can fill with blood again.
The cause of this is not fully known but tends to affect people over the age of 65. It can be triggered by certain situations, such as excessively drinking alcohol and smoking. There is no hard and fast rule however, as perfectly healthy people can experience Atrial Defibrillation.
SYMPTOMS OF ATRIAL FIBRILLATION (AFIB)
- Heart palpitations
- Shortness of breath
- Feeling faint
TREATING ATRIAL FIBRILLATION
With appropriate treatment, the risk of a stroke can be substantially reduced.
It is possible to be treated by your GP and be given blood thinning medications to reduce the likelihood of blood clots. Anticoagulant medicines make the blood take longer to clot, making it a vital part of helping prevent strokes.
In more extreme cases, you may be referred to a Cardiologist, or more specifically, a cardiac Electrophysiologist. They will focus on your hearts timing, electrical system, or diagnosing and treating irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias.
PREVENTION OF ATRIAL FIBRILLATION
As is fairly standard, the main way to prevent Atrial Fibrillation is by maintaining a heart-healthy lifestyle. This includes exercising, avoiding excessive drinking, not smoking, and eating a healthy diet.
If you have concerns about your heart rate and blood pressure, visit your GP. They may recommend purchasing a blood pressure monitor to keep an eye on certain levels. Make an appointment with your GP if you notice a sudden change in your heartbeat or your heart rate is consistently lower than 60 or above 100.

4. FREE Protectus Viridis Foam Hand Sanitiser – Pump – 450ml (code: VIR450)
Effective – Efficient – Economical
During your working day you use your hands as tools for a wide range of functions from the moment you wake up. The Viridis hygienic handrub residual efficacy keeps working for up to 4 hours.
Washing, food prep, opening doors, contacting frequently touched surfaces and holding loved ones, the list goes on. This leaves your hands very exposed to harmful viruses and germs.
85% of cross contamination is caused by our hands.
When possible, wash your hands with soap and water; but it is also vital to use the best Hand Hygiene disinfectant during your day, whether you are working, travelling, socialising, going to hospital appointments or dentists etc. This will help to stop the transmission of viruses, bacteria and yeast by hands.
WHO (World Health Organisation) acknowledges that sanitising/disinfecting your hands is the best way to avoid getting ill and spreading viruses and germs.
WHO supports water based hand sanitisers/disinfectants that have been independently tested to work as well or better than alcohol based hand sanitiser ensuring a maximum kill of viruses and germs. Protectus Viridis™ Hand disinfectant is water based and has been proven to be as effective as alcohol (refer to EN1500 test report) and has passed the relevant EN1500 standard against 60% alcohol at an accredited independent laboratory.
Economical refill packs save cost and waste by allowing you to reuse trigger sprays and dispense bottles. Using our pro-active formulation, Viridis actively protects against harmful bacteria and pathogens even when dry.
Protectus Viridis™ is a water-based disinfectant. Unlike traditional disinfectants, Viridis™ is non-toxic because it does not contain harsh chemicals and compounds. It is colourless and fragrance-free. Viridis™ is also non-flammable as it is alcohol-free. This makes our sanitisers family-friendly to use, as it is gentle to the skin and does not cause dryness. As Viridis™ & Ultimate™ are non-corrosive, our multi-surface disinfectants are also ideal for many industries. Our RBT solutions are alcohol-free and therefore has achieved Halal status by Jakim, the body responsible for halal-certification in Malaysia.

Protectus Viridis™ generally pose no threat to plants, fish, and other animals after release into waterways or the environment as it is able to break down naturally.
Protectus Viridis™ is carefully-formulated to contain a combination of active ingredients, enabling it to successfully destroy pathogens. These active ingredients are able to work synergistically together to eliminate viruses, bacteria and fungi. From our clinical and field tests, Protectus Viridis™ have demonstrated a high microbiocidal efficacy and is 99.999% effective against a broad spectrum of microbes including viruses, bacteria, fungi, moulds and yeasts. They are unique water-based disinfectants that can offer similar anti-microbial efficacy compared to alcohol-based disinfectants.
Unlike alcohol-based products which evaporate, Protectus Viridis™ products continue working after it dries because it is water-based. Upon killing pathogens on contact, Protectus Viridis™ and Protectus Ultimate™ continue to protect surfaces and hands by preventing reinfection even after it dries. This longer-lasting residual efficacy is made possible thanks to our unique Residual Barrier Technology. When surfaces are treated with the Protectus Viridis™ products, a residual barrier or protective layer is created which prevents further microbial contamination for up to 24 hours (*dependent on frequency of abrasion) . It remains effective against microbes even without the need to reapply.
It is convenient and easy to use. It can be sprayed, misted or wiped down, giving individuals, households, hospitals, nursing homes, childcare centers, dental centers, places of worships, hotels and other businesses various cleaning and sanitisation options depending on their needs. As our products produce a longer residual efficacy, it is more cost-effective and will generate savings in the long run.
