Introduction
Product Identification and Caution
To achieve the maximum benefit from your blood pressure monitor, we
recommend that you first consult with your physician or trained health care
professional.

WHO (World Health
Organization)
Indicator
Thank you for purchasing an Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor. With
proper care and use, your monitor will provide you with many years of
reliable readings.
Cuff Jack
The method of measurement that your Automatic Monitor uses is called
the oscillometric method. The monitor detects your blood’s movement
through the artery in your arm and converts the movements into a digital
reading. The oscillometric method does not require a stethoscope, making
the monitor easy-to-use.

Your Automatic Monitor is specially enhanced with Fuzzy Logic technology.
The unit will inflate to the optimum level and deflate at a constant rate,
based on your individual pressure oscillations. Your blood pressure and
pulse readings will be clearly displayed on the large digital panel.
Blood pressure readings determined with this device are equivalent to
measurements obtained by a trained observer using the cuff/stethoscope
auscultation method, within the limits prescribed by the American National
Standard for Electronic or Automated Sphygmomanometers.

General Blood Pressure Information
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the pressure that is exerted by blood flowing against the
walls of the blood vessels throughout your body.
Your heart, which is the center of the circulatory system, provides the
force for the blood to flow or circulate. When your heart contracts or beats,
the blood is forced through the blood vessels increasing the pressure. This
is the highest pressure in the cycle or what is referred to as SYSTOLIC
BLOOD PRESSURE. In between beats, your heart relaxes and your blood
pressure decreases. This is referred to as DIASTOLIC BLOOD
PRESSURE.
This complete series of events which occurs in a single heartbeat is
known as the CARDIAC CYCLE.
Your Digital Blood Pressure Monitor will automatically read your blood
pressure and display both systolic and diastolic readings on the screen.
Your systolic will be positioned as the upper number and the diastolic
reading will be the lower number.
(systolic)
120
/80
(diastolic)
Blood pressure is measured in millimeters (mm) of Mercury (Hg) and is
generally recorded with the systolic pressure (120) listed first and the
diastolic pressure (80) listed second. The numbers are typically separated
by a slash mark ( / ) as shown above.
Both pressure readings, the SYSTOLIC and the DIASTOLIC, are
necessary for a physician to evaluate the status of a patient’s blood
pressure.
What Influences Blood Pressure?
Many factors such as genetics, age, sex, altitude, physical activity, anxiety,
muscular development, certain medications or even the time of day can
influence blood pressure. Influences such as sleep or relaxation decreases
blood pressure, while anxiety or exercise increases blood pressure.
Why Monitor Your Blood Pressure at Home?
A visit to a physician’s office can be a stressful situation for a patient. And,
anxiety is a known factor in raising blood pressure. This temporary
occurrence of elevated blood pressure at the physician’s office is
commonly referred to as “white coat syndrome”.
Whether or not you experience “white coat syndrome”, home blood
pressure monitoring provides you with the opportunity to supplement your
physician’s office measurements. These home readings, when taken over
a period of time, can show an accurate indication of change. Furthermore,
your records can assist your physician in evaluating your health and in
making important decisions in the diagnosis and treatment of your
condition. Because of this, it is important to take consistent, daily
measurements of your blood pressure.
The variations in your individual readings should only be interpreted by
your physician or a trained health care professional.
WHO Blood Pressure Classifications
Standards for assessment of high or low blood pressure, regardless of
age, have been established by the World Health Organization (WHO) as
shown in the chart on the following page.
Please contact your physician for specific information regarding your own
blood pressure.

Important Information Before Use
1. Blood pressure measurements should only be interpreted by a
physician or a trained health care professional who is familiar with your
medical history. Through regular use of this device and recording of
your measurements, you can keep your physician informed of the
changes in your blood pressure.
2. Perform your measurement in a quite place. You should be seated in a
relaxed position.
3. Avoid smoking, eating, taking medication, alcohol consumption or
physical activity 30 minutes prior to taking a reading. If you are
exhibiting signs of stress, avoid taking your measurement until the
feeling subsides.
4. Rest 15 minutes prior to taking a reading.
5. Remove any constrictive clothing or jewelry that may interfere with the
cuff placement.
Variations in Blood Pressure
Blood Pressure (mmHg)
Blood pressure can be influenced by many factors. This change can occur
from moment to moment. Normally, blood pressure is lowest during the
sleeping period and rises during the day. The graph below represents the
variations in blood pressure shown over a day with measurements taken
every 5 minutes.

to a stressful occurrence
and at 7 PM (B in the graph)
a period of exercise.
6. Keep the monitor stable during measurements. Remain still; do not talk
during measurements.
7. Record your daily blood pressure and pulse readings on a chart.
8. Take your readings at the same time, each day (or as recommended by
your physician) to get an accurate indication of change in your true
blood pressure.
9. Wait a minimum of 15 minutes between readings to allow for the blood
vessels to return to normal. The wait time may vary depending on your
individual physiological characteristics.
10. This device is intended for adult use.
While taking a measurement, you can stop the inflation or deflation
process of the cuff at any time by pressing the POWER Button.

Applying Your Blood Pressure Cuff
Avoid smoking, eating, taking medication, alcohol consumption or physical
activity 30 minutes prior to taking a reading. If you are exhibiting signs of
stress, avoid taking your measurement until the feeling subsides. Rest 15
minutes prior to taking a reading.
NOTE: If for any reason you are unable to or should not use your left arm,
please modify the following instructions and apply the cuff to your right
arm. Your physician can tell you which arm is best for you to use.
1. Remove any constrictive clothing or jewelry that may interfere with the
cuff placement.
6. The bottom edge of the cuff should be
positioned approximately one inch ABOVE
the elbow joint, Fig. 3.
7. Reaching underneath your left arm with your
right hand, pull the end of the cuff towards
your body to tighten the cuff, Fig. 4. Wrap and
secure the cuff making sure that the ( ) mark
remains as shown, Fig. 2.
8. The cuff should fit comfortably, yet snugly
around your arm. You should be able to insert
one finger between your arm and the cuff.
Fig. 4
2. Be seated with your feet flat on the floor.
5. Insert your left arm into the cuff (cylinder).
Position the ( ) mark over the main artery
(on the inside of your arm), Fig. 2.
NOTE: The cuff size is suitable for use when the vertical ‘index’ mark is
within the horizontal ‘OK’ range. A different sized cuff is needed if the
‘index’ mark is outside the ‘OK’ range.

3. Position the cuff on a solid surface with the tubing facing UP and AWAY
from you. The metal bar on the cuff should be to the left of the tubing.
4. Widen or open the cuff by pulling or rolling
the bottom of the cuff towards the right,
Fig. 1. This should open the cuff, creating a
cylinder. Do not extend the cuff beyond the
metal bar.

the display showing the increasing pressure in
the cuff. As the pressure increases, an arrow
pointing up will appear on the display, Fig. 5.
Systolic
8. Your blood pressure (systolic and diastolic)
measurement and pulse rate will be
simultaneously displayed, Fig. 7.
Proceed only after reading the previous sections of this manual.
2. Rest your elbow on a solid surface with your
palm facing upward. Elevate your arm so that
the cuff is at the same level as your heart, Fig. 2.
Relax your left hand.
7. Once the systolic pressure is reached, the
cuff will exhaust all air.
