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 BP742 comes with the following components:
• Monitor • Standard Adult Arm Cuff • 4 “AA” Alkaline Batteries
• Instruction Manual printed in English and Spanish • Quick Start Guide
The BP742 IntelliSense® Automatic 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
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
WARNING
could result in death or serious injury.
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
may result in minor or moderate injury to the user or patient or
CAUTION
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.

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 “AA” 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.

IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT SYMBOL (
)
When the monitor detects an irregular rhythm two or more times during the
measurement, the Irregular Heartbeat Symbol (
) will appear on the display with the
measurement values.
An irregular heartbeat rhythm is defined �
Normal Heartbeat
as a rhythm that is more than 25% �
Pulse
slower or 25% faster from the average �
rhythm detected while the monitor is �
Blood
pressure
measuring the systolic and diastolic �
blood pressure.

MOVEMENT ERROR SYMBOL (
)
The Movement Error Symbol (
) is displayed if you move your body during the
measurement. Please remove the arm cuff, and wait 2-3 minutes. Reapply the arm cuff
and take another measurement.
HEARTBEAT SYMBOL/HYPERTENSION INDICATOR (
)
TAKING A MEASUREMENT
The Heartbeat Symbol (
) flashes on the display during the measurement. The
Heartbeat Symbol (
) flashes at every heartbeat.
When the measurement is complete, the Heartbeat Symbol (
) flashes on the
display with your blood pressure and pulse rate if the reading is above 135 for the
Systolic Blood Pressure value and/or above 85 for the Diastolic Blood Pressure
value.
USING THE MEMORY FUNCTION
The Heartbeat Symbol (
) flashes when the blood pressure reading stored in the
memory is above 135 for the Systolic Blood Pressure value and/or above 85 for the
Diastolic Blood Pressure value.

DISPLAY SYMBOLS
The American Heart Association recommends the following guideline for upper limit
of normal for home blood pressure readings:
AHA Home Guideline for Upper Limit of Normal BP
Systolic Blood Pressure
135 mmHg
Diastolic Blood Pressure
85 mmHg
This is a general guideline because blood pressure depends on age and morbidity.
The AHA recommends a lower home blood pressure goal for certain patients,
including diabetic patients, pregnant women, and patients with renal failure1.
WARNING
The monitor is not intended to be a diagnostic device.
WARNING
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.
Omron Healthcare recommends you contact your physician if the Heartbeat Symbol �
(
) flashes on the display with your measurement values.
