Dear Customers
Congratulations on purchasing a state-of-the-art A&D blood pressure monitor, one of the most advanced monitors
available today. Designed for ease of use and accuracy, this monitor will facilitate your daily blood pressure regimen.
We recommend that you read through this manual carefully before using the device for the first time.
Preliminary Remarks
This device conforms to the European Directive 93/42 EEC for Medical Products. This is made evident by the
mark of conformity. (0366: The reference number to the involved notified body)
The device is designed for use on adults only, not newborns or infants.
Environment for use
The device is for use indoors.
Precautions
Precision components are used in the construction of this device. Extremes in temperature, humidity, direct
sunlight, shock or dust should be avoided.
Clean the device and cuff with a dry, soft cloth or a cloth dampened with water and a neutral detergent. Never
use alcohol, benzene, thinner or other harsh chemicals to clean the device or cuff.
Avoid tightly folding the cuff for long periods, as such treatment may shorten the life of the components.
The device and cuff are not water resistant. Prevent rain, sweat and water from soiling the device and cuff.
Measurements may be distorted if the device is used close to televisions, microwave ovens, cellular telephones,
X-ray or other devices with strong electrical fields.
Used equipment, parts and batteries are not treated as ordinary household waste, and must be disposed of
according to the applicable local regulations.
When your wrist is squeezed tightly by a cuff, blood collects in the finger tips and your wrist may become
congested.

About 1 cm
4. How to Take Accurate Measurements
For the most accurate blood pressure measurement:
• Sit comfortably at a table. Rest your arm on the table.
• Relax for about five to ten minutes before measurement.
• Raise your hand so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart.
• Remain still and keep quiet during measurement.
• Do not measure immediately after physical exercise or a bath.
Rest for twenty or thirty minutes before taking the measurement.
• Try to measure your blood pressure at about the same time every day.
5. Measurement
During measurement, it is normal for the cuff to feel very tight. (Do not be alarmed.)
6. After Measurement
After measurement, press the START button to turn the device off. Remove the cuff and record your data.
Notes: The device is provided with an automatic power shut-off function which turns the device off automatically
one minute after measurement.
Allow at least three minutes between measurements on the same person.

Measurements
Note: The UB-542, once used, will provide an inflation appropriate to the user, based on the previous measurement.
1. Sit comfortably with the cuff at the same level as your heart
and relax.
2. Press the START button.
All of the display segments are displayed.
Zero (0) is displayed blinking briefly.
Then the display changes, as indicated in the figure at the
right, as measurement begins.
The cuff starts to inflate. It is normal for the cuff to feel very
tight.
Note: If you wish to stop inflation at any time, press the START
button again.
3. The measurement starts automatically when inflation starts,
and the
(heart mark) blinks.
4. When the measurement is complete, the systolic and diastolic
pressure readings and pulse rate are displayed.
During the data display, the date and time are displayed alternately.
The cuff exhausts the remaining air and completely deflates
automatically.
5. Press the START button again to turn the device off.
Remove the cuff.
Notes: The device is provided with an automatic power shut-off
function.
Allow at least three minutes between measurements on
the same person.

Notes For Accurate Measurement
Sit down in a comfortable position. Place your arm on a table or other support. Raise your hand so that the cuff is
at the same level as your heart.
Relax for about five to ten minutes before taking a measurement. If you are excited or depressed by emotional
stress, the measurement will reflect this stress as a higher (or lower) than normal blood pressure reading and the
pulse reading will usually be faster than normal.
An individual's blood pressure varies constantly, depending on what they are doing and what they have eaten.
What you drink can have a very strong and rapid effect on your blood pressure.
This device bases its measurements on the heartbeat. If you have a very weak or irregular heartbeat, the device
may have difficulty determining your blood pressure.
Should the device detect a condition that is abnormal, it will stop the measurement and display an error symbol.
See page 5 for the description of symbols.
This blood pressure monitor is intended for use by adults only. Consult with your physician before using this
device on a child. A child should not use this device unattended.
Deleting all Data Stored in Memory

What is an Irregular Heartbeat?
Model UB-542 blood pressure monitor provides a blood pressure and pulse rate measurement even when an
irregular heartbeat occurs. An irregular heartbeat is defined as a heartbeat that varies by 25% from the average
of all heartbeats during the blood pressure measurement. It is important that you be relaxed, remain still and do
not talk during measurements.
Note: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this
symbol frequently.

About Blood Pressure
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries. Systolic pressure occurs when the
heart contracts. Diastolic pressure occurs when the heart expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of
mercury (mmHg). One's natural blood pressure is represented by the fundamental pressure, which is measured
first thing in the morning while one is still at rest and before eating.
What is Hypertension and How is it Controlled?
Hypertension, an abnormally high arterial blood pressure, if left unattended can cause many health problems including
stroke and heart attack. Hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle, avoiding stress, and with medication under
a doctor’s supervision.
English 13
To prevent hypertension or keep it under control:
Do not smoke
Exercise regularly
Reduce salt and fat intake
Have regular physical checkups
Maintain proper weight
Why Measure Blood Pressure at Home?
Blood pressure measured at a clinic or doctor's office may cause
apprehension and can produce an elevated reading, 25 to 30
mmHg higher than that measured at home. Home measurement
reduces the effects of outside influences on blood pressure
readings, supplements the doctor's readings and provides a more
accurate, complete blood pressure history.
WHO Blood Pressure Classification
Standards to assess high blood pressure, without regard to age,
have been established by the World Health Organization (WHO),
as shown in the chart at the right.
Blood Pressure Variations
An individual’s blood pressure varies greatly on a daily and seasonal basis. It may
vary by 30 to 50 mmHg due to various conditions during the day. In hypertensive
individuals variations are even more pronounced. Normally, the blood pressure rises
while at work or play and falls to its lowest levels during sleep. So, do not be overly
concerned by the results of one measurement.
Take measurements at the same time every day using the procedure described
in this manual to get to know your normal blood pressure. Regular readings give
a more comprehensive blood pressure history. Be sure to note the date and
time when recording your blood pressure. Consult your doctor to interpret your
blood pressure data.
