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.
Digital Display
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.
Time Set
Button
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 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 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.
Wrist Cuff
Memory Button
POWER Button
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.

Caution
While taking a measurement, you can stop the inflation or deflation
process of the cuff at any time by pressing the POWER button.

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 pres
sure.
2.
Perform your measurement in a quiet 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.
This chart is only a general guideline. Please contact your physician to
determine your NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE.
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
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 display panel in view.
7.
Keep the monitor stable during measurement to achieve an accurate
reading. Remain still; do not talk during the measurement.
8.
Record your daily blood pressure and pulse readings on a chart.
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.
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.

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 professional.
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.

comfortably around your wrist, Fig. 3.
NOTE: The left wrist should be used unless
you are unable to or should not use your left
arm or wrist. In consultation with your
physician, you may modify the following
instructions and apply the cuff to your right
wrist.
2. You should be seated with your feet flat on
the floor.
