Introduction
To achieve the maximum benefit from your blood pressure monitor, we
recommend that you first consult with your physician or trained health care
professional.
Product Identification & Caution
MEMO button
LCD Display
Thank you for purchasing a MABIS Automatic Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor.
With proper care and use, your monitor will provide you with many years of
reliable readings.
Wrist Cuff
Battery Cover
The method of measurement that your Automatic Wrist Monitor uses is
called the oscillometric method. The monitor detects your blood’s movement
through the artery in your wrist and converts the movements into a digital
reading. The oscillometric method does not require a stethoscope, making
the monitor easy-to-use. The preformed cuff requires little effort to apply and
is comfortable to wear.
Clinical research has proven a direct relationship between blood pressure in
the wrist and blood pressure in the arm. Because the arteries in the wrist
and the arm are connected, changes in wrist blood pressure reflect changes
in arm blood pressure. Frequent wrist blood pressure measurements will
provide you and your physician with an accurate indication of change in your
true blood pressure.
People with severe hypertension, severe arteriosclerosis, or severe
diabetes, should consult their physician about monitoring blood
pressure at the wrist.
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 MABIS Automatic Wrist 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)
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.
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.
Please contact your physician for specific information regarding your own blood
pressure.

WHO Blood Pressure Classifications
Important Information Before Use
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 following chart.
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.

6. Apply the cuff to the proper position on the left wrist. The unit should be located on the
inside of your left wrist with the digital display panel in view.
CATEGORY
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.
This chart is only a general guideline. Please contact your physician to
determine your NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE.
7. Keep the monitor stable during measurement to achieve an accurate reading. Remain still;
do not talk during the measurement.
Variations in Blood Pressure
8. Record your daily blood pressure and pulse readings on a chart.
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.
The dotted line represents the
sleep period. The rise in blood
pressure at 1 p.m. (A in the graph)
corresponds to a stressful
occurrence and at 7 p.m. (B in the
graph) a period of exercise.

9. 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.
10. 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.
11. Although such cases are rare, for those with an extremely weak pulse or irregular pulse,
errors may result which prevent proper measurement. If abnormal variations are noticed,
consult with your physician or trained healthcare physician.
12. 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.

Taking Your Blood Pressure Reading
Storing Measurements in Memory
8. The unit will begin to automatically deflate and
make “clicking” sounds.
Your MABIS Automatic Wrist Monitor can store
up to 60 total measurements into two separate
memory banks (30 each) these include the date
and time of each measurement.
The memory feature must be done
immediately following reading — prior to
turning the unit off.
9. The numbers appearing on the display will
decrease, Fig. 5.
10. When all air is deflated, the measurement is
complete. The unit will display your blood
pressure (systolic and diastolic)
measurement and pulse rate, Fig. 6.
11. Record your readings on a chart.
Fig. 5
12. At this point, you can store your measurement
in memory (See Storing Measurements in
Memory) or simply turn the power off by
pressing the POWER button. Otherwise, your
unit will automatically shut off after
approximately 3 minutes.
Fig. 1
2. When the correct memory bank symbol is
displayed, press the MEMO button, Fig. 1.
The measurement will be stored.

This monitor inflates the cuff to approximately
180mmHg. If the system detects that the cuff
needs additional pressure, it will automatically
reinflate to approximately 220 mmHg.
Fig. 6
1. With your blood pressure (systolic and
diastolic) measurements and pulse rate
displayed, press the button to alternate
between memory bank 1 or 2.
3. The memory bank number will flash several
times and the unit will return to the “ready for
measurement” display, Fig. 2.

If you need to take another measurement, 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.
