The monitor is compact and easy-to-use at home, at work, and during travel. Perfect for
people who frequently monitor their own blood pressure.
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.
Clinical research has proven a direct relationship between blood pressure in the wrist
and blood pressure in the arm. Changes in wrist blood pressure reflect changes in arm
blood pressure because the arteries in the wrist and the arm are close to each other.
Frequently measuring the blood pressure in your wrist will provide your physician with
an accurate indication of changes in your blood pressure.
The BP629 comes with the following components:
• Monitor • Storage Case • 2 “AAA” Alkaline Batteries
• Instruction Manual printed in English and Spanish • Quick Start Guide
The BP629 IntelliSense® Automatic Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor is intended for home use.

SAFETY INFORMATION
To assure the correct use of the product, basic safety measures should always be
followed including the warnings and cautions listed in this instruction manual.
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.
DO NOT adjust medication based on measurement results from this blood pressure
monitor. Take medication as prescribed by your physician. Only a physician is
qualified to diagnose and treat High Blood Pressure.
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.
If you have a condition that may compromise circulation, you may get an inaccurate
reading with this device. Consult your physician before using this device.
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.
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.
4
SAFETY INFORMATION
Do not use a cellular phone near the device. It may result in an operational failure.
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. The cuff can be applied to your left or right wrist.
4. Measurements should be taken in a quiet place.
5. Position the unit at heart level throughout the measurement.
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.

APPLYING THE WRIST CUFF
CAUTION
Read all of the information in the instruction manual and any other
literature in the box before operating the unit.
CAUTION
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.
APPLYING THE CUFF ON THE LEFT WRIST
1. Roll up sleeve. Make sure your sleeve is not rolled up too
tightly on your arm. This may constrict the flow of blood in
your arm.
2. Wrap the cuff directly against your skin.
Do not apply over clothing. Place the cuff over your left
wrist with your left thumb facing upward.
3. Position the cuff leaving a clearance of approximately 1/2
to 1 inch between the cuff and the bottom of your palm.
4. Hold the bottom part of the cuff and wrap it around the
wrist so it fits comfortably and securely around your wrist.
NOTE:Make sure the wrist cuff does not cover the
protruding part of the wrist bone on the outside of
the wrist.
15
APPLYING THE WRIST CUFF
5. Fold the remaining part of the wrist cuff back out of the
way.
APPLYING THE CUFF ON THE RIGHT WRIST
When taking a measurement using the right wrist
position the cuff as shown in the illustration.
16
TAKING A MEASUREMENT
1. Sit comfortably in a chair with your feet flat on the floor.
2. Hold your arm across your chest at heart level.
Hold your elbow firmly to avoid body movement.
Sit still and do not talk or move during the measurement.
3. Press the START/STOP button.
All symbols appear on the display.
17
TAKING A MEASUREMENT
The cuff starts to inflate automatically.
As the cuff inflates, the monitor automatically determines your ideal inflation level.
This monitor detects your blood pressure and pulse rate during inflation.
The Heartbeat Symbol ( ) flashes at every heartbeat.
Remain still and do not move until the entire measurement process is completed.
NOTE:To stop the inflation or measurement, push the START/STOP button. The
monitor will stop inflating, start deflating, and will turn off.
4. After the monitor has detected your blood pressure
and pulse rate, the cuff automatically deflates. Your
blood pressure and pulse rate are displayed.
5. Press the START/STOP button to turn the monitor off.
NOTE:The monitor will automatically turn off after two minutes.
18
USING THE MEMORY FUNCTION
Every time you complete a measurement the monitor stores the blood pressure
and pulse rate in the memory. The monitor automatically stores up to 60 sets of
measurement values (blood pressure and pulse rate). When 60 sets of measurement
values are stored, the oldest record is deleted to save the most recent values.
AVERAGING FUNCTION
The monitor calculates the average reading based on up to the three most recent sets of
measurement values taken within 10 minutes of the most recent reading.
NOTE:If two sets of measurement values are stored in the memory for the 10 minute
period, the average is based on the two sets of measurement values. If only
one set of measurement values is stored, this is displayed as the average.
TO DISPLAY THE MEASUREMENT VALUES
1. Press the MEM button to display the average reading based on the three most recent
sets of measurement values taken within 10 minutes of the most recent reading.
The Average Value Symbol ( ) appears on the display when the average reading is
shown.
2. Press the MEM button to display the set of measurement values from the most
recent to the oldest.
