Dear Customer
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 CE mark of conformity accompanied by
the reference number of the designated authority.
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 with a soft, dry cloth. Never use thinner, alcohol, benzene, or
a wet cloth.
Avoid tightly folding the cuff or storing the hose tightly twisted 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 a television,
microwave oven, cellular telephone, X-ray or other devices with strong

Place the center of the cuff at the same height as your heart.
Remain still and keep quiet during measurement.
Do not measure right after physical exercise or a bath. Rest for twenty or
thirty minutes before taking the measurement.
Try to measure your blood pressure at the same time every day.
Measurement (Operation)
During measurement, it is normal for the cuff to feel very tight.
Select a measurement mode (operation of the device).
Normal measurement with storing data : ......Press the START 1 or START 2 button.

After Measurement
After the measurement has completed, remove the cuff and record your data,
then press the START 1 or START 2 button to turn off the power.
Note: The device has an automatic power shut-off function, which turns the
power off approximately one minute after measurement.
Allow at least three minutes between measurements on the same person.

Measurements
Model UA-774 is designed to detect the pulse and to inflate the cuff to a systolic
pressure level automatically.
If your systolic pressure is expected to exceed 230 mmHg or you use the
optional cuff, read "Measurement with the desired systolic pressure" on next page.
Model UA-774 can store the last thirty sets of data for each button. We
recommend that if two people regularly use the device, one uses the START 1
button and the other uses START 2 button, to prevent confusion over stored data.
Normal Measurement With Storing Data
1. Place the cuff on the arm (preferably the left arm).
Sit quietly during measurement.
2. Press the START 1 (or START 2 ) button.
The average blood pressures and last data
number are displayed briefly. Then current
pressure is displayed, as the measurement
begins. The cuff starts to inflate. It is normal
for the cuff to feel very tight. A pressure bar
indicator is displayed during measurement.

measurement
Notes For Proper Measurement
Sit down in a comfortable position. Place the arm to be used for the
measurement on a table or other support so that the center of the cuff will be
at the same height as your heart.
Relax for about five or 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.
Your blood pressure varies constantly, depending on what you are doing and
what you 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. Refer to page 4.
Model UA-774 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.

Operation Mode
1. Normal measurement with storing data ( Refer to page 7)
Press the START 1 (or START 2) button. Blood pressure is measured and
data is stored within the device. The device can store the last thirty sets of
data for each button. We recommend that if two people regularly use the
device, one uses the START 1 button and the other uses START 2 button.
Recalling data
Press and hold the START 1 (or START 2) button to
recall the data. Stored data are automatically
displayed in order from the last data.
Clearing data
Remove batteries to clear all data. Re-install them again.

What Is An Irregular Heartbeat?
Model UA-774 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
indicator 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 one's lifestyle, avoiding stress, and with medication
under a doctor’s supervision. To prevent hypertension or to 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.
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
Blood Pressure
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 individual 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

Note: If the actions described above do not solve the problem, contact the dealer.
Do not attempt to open or repair this product, as any attempt to do so will
make your warranty invalid.
Maintenance
Do not open the device. It uses delicate electrical components and an
intricate air unit that could be damaged. If you cannot fix the problem using
the troubleshooting instructions, request service from your dealer or from the
A&D service group. The A&D service group will provide technical information,
spare parts and units to authorized dealers.
The device was designed and manufactured for a long service life. However
it is generally recommended to have the monitor inspected every 2 years, to
ensure proper functioning and accuracy. Please contact either your
authorized dealer or A&D for maintenance.
