Your new digital blood pressure monitor uses the oscillometric method of blood
pressure measurement. This means the monitor detects your blood’s movement
through your brachial artery and converts the movements into a digital reading. An
oscillometric monitor does not need a stethoscope so the monitor is simple to use.
The BP710 comes with the following components:
• Monitor • Standard Adult Arm Cuff
• Instruction Manual printed in English and Spanish • Quick Start Guide
The BP710 IntelliSense® Automatic Inflation Blood Pressure Monitor is intended for
home use.

SAFETY SYMBOLS USED IN THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL
WARNING
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
may result in minor or moderate injury to the user or patient or
damage to the equipment or other property.
OPERATING THE DEVICE
Contact your physician for specific information about your blood pressure.
Self-diagnosis and treatment using measured results may be dangerous. Follow the
instructions of your physician or licensed healthcare provider.
The monitor is not intended to be a diagnostic device.
If battery fluid should get in your eyes, immediately rinse with plenty of clean
water. Contact a physician immediately.
Read all of the information in the instruction manual and any other literature in the
box before operating the unit.
This device is intended for use in measuring blood pressure and pulse rate in the
adult population. Do not use this device on infants or persons who cannot express
their intentions.
Read the Special Conditions section of the instruction manual if your systolic
pressure is known to be more than 220 mmHg. Inflating to a higher pressure than
necessary may result in bruising where the cuff is applied.
Operate the device only as intended. Do not use the device for any other purpose.
Dispose of the device, components and optional accessories according to applicable
local regulations. Unlawful disposal may cause environmental pollution.
Do not use a cellular phone near the device. It may result in an operational failure.
4
SAFETY INFORMATION
Use only Omron authorized parts and accessories. Parts and accessories not
approved for use with the device may damage the unit.
Use only 1.5 V “AAA” alkaline batteries with this device. Do not use other types of
batteries. This may damage the unit.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Do not subject the monitor to strong shocks, such as dropping the unit on the floor.
Do not submerge the device or any of the components in water.
Store the device and the components in a clean, safe location.
Changes or modification not approved by the manufacturer will void the user
warranty. Do not disassemble or attempt to repair the unit or components.
5
BEFORE TAKING A MEASUREMENT
To ensure a reliable reading follow these recommendations:
1. Avoid eating, drinking alcohol, smoking, exercising, and bathing for 30 minutes
before taking a measurement. Rest for at least 15 minutes before taking the
measurement.
2. Stress raises blood pressure. Avoid taking measurements during stressful times.
3. Measurements should be taken in a quiet place.
4. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your left arm.
5. Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Rest your left arm on table so that the
cuff is at the same level as your heart.
6. Remain still and do not talk during the measurement.
7. Wait 2-3 minutes between measurements. The wait time allows the arteries to return
to the condition prior to taking the blood pressure measurement. You may need to
increase the wait time depending on your individual physiological characteristics.
8. Keep a record of your blood pressure and pulse readings for your physician. A
single measurement does not provide an accurate indication of your true blood
pressure. You need to take and record several readings over a period of time. Try to
measure your blood pressure at the same time each day for consistency.
