How To Take Proper Measurements
For the most accurate blood
pressure measurement:
Sit comfortably at a table.
Rest your arm on the table.
Index
and Proper fit range
Relax for about five to ten minutes
before measurement.
Place the center of the cuff at the same height as your heart.
Remain still and keep quiet during measurement.
Do not measure right after physical exercise or a bath. Rest for twenty or
thirty minutes before taking the measurement.
Try to measure your blood pressure at the same time every day.
Measurement
During measurement, it is normal for the cuff to feel very tight. (Do not be
alarmed)
After Measurement

Note: The device has an automatic power shut-off function, which turns the
power off approximately one minute after measurement.
Allow at least ten minutes between measurements on the same person.

Measurements
Model UA-767
BT is designed to detect the pulse and to inflate the
cuff to a systolic pressure level automatically.
If your systolic pressure is expected to exceed 230 mmHg or you use the
optional small cuff, read "Measurement with the desired systolic
pressure" on the next page.
Normal Measurement
1.
Place the cuff on the arm (preferably the left arm).
At heart level
Sit quietly during measurement.
2.
Press the START button.
The last data of systolic and diastolic
pressure and pulse rate are displayed
briefly. Then the display changes, as
indicated in the figure at the right, as the
measurement begins. The cuff starts to
inflate. It is normal for the cuff to feel very
tight. A pressure bar indicator is displayed,
as in the figure at the right, during inflation.
Note: If you wish to stop inflation at any time,
press the START button again.
3.
When inflation is complete, deflation starts
automatically and the
(heart mark)
blinks, indicating that the measurement is
in progress. Once the pulse is detected,
the mark blinks with each pulse beat.
Note: If an appropriate pressure is not
obtained, the device starts to inflate
again automatically.

5.
When the measurement is complete, the
systolic and diastolic pressure readings and
pulse rate are displayed. The cuff exhausts
the remaining air and deflates completely.

Measurements
Measurement With The Desired Systolic Pressure
If your systolic pressure is expected to exceed 230 mmHg or you use the
optional small cuff, use this procedure.
1.
Place the cuff on the arm (preferably the left arm).
2.
Press and hold the START button
until a number about 30 to 40 mmHg
higher than your expected systolic
pressure appears.
3.
Release the START button to start
measurement, when the desired
number is reached. Then continue to
measure your blood pressure as
described on the previous page.
At heart level
Press and hold the button
Release the button
at the desired
systolic pressure
Refer to the previous page
for measurement
Notes For Proper Measurement
Sit down in a comfortable position. Place the arm to be used for the
measurement on a table or other support so that the center of the cuff
will be at the same height as your heart.
Relax for about five or ten minutes before taking a measurement. If you
are excited or depressed by emotional stress, the measurement will
reflect this stress as a higher (or lower) than normal blood pressure
reading and the pulse reading will usually be faster than normal.
An individual's blood pressure varies constantly, depending on what you
are doing and what you have eaten. What you drink can have a very
strong and rapid effect on your blood pressure.
This device bases its measurements on the heartbeat. If you have a very
weak or irregular heartbeat, the device may have difficulty determining
your blood pressure.
Should the device detect a condition that is abnormal, it will stop the
measurement and display an error symbol. See page 4 for the
description of symbols.
This blood pressure monitor is intended for use by adults only. Consult
with your physician before using this device on a child. A child should not
use this device unattended.
English 8
What Is An Irregular Heartbeat
Model UA-767
BT blood pressure monitor provides a blood
pressure and pulse rate measurement even when an irregular heartbeat
occurs. An irregular heartbeat is defined as a heartbeat that varies by
25% from the average of all heartbeats during the blood pressure
measurement. It is important that you be relaxed, remain still and do not
talk during measurements.
Note: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this
indicator frequently.
Pressure Bar Indicator

How The Wireless Connection Works
At the end of the measurement, your blood pressure will be sent
automatically to your health monitoring device. You do not need to do
anything. If the health monitoring device is not working or is not within
range of the blood pressure monitor, the blood pressure will be stored in
the blood pressure monitor's memory (up to 40 sets).

About Blood Pressure
What Is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries.
Systolic pressure occurs when the heart contracts. Diastolic pressure occurs
when the heart expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of
mercury (mmHg). One's natural blood pressure is represented by the
fundamental pressure, which is measured first thing in the morning while one
is still at rest and before eating.
What Is Hypertension And How Is It Controlled?
Hypertension, an abnormally high arterial blood pressure, if left unattended,
can cause many health problems including stroke and heart attack.
Hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle, avoiding stress, and with
medication under a doctor’s supervision.
To prevent hypertension or keep it under control:
Do not smoke
Exercise regularly
Reduce salt and fat intake
Have regular physical checkups
Maintain proper weight
Why Measure Blood Pressure At Home?
Blood pressure measured at a clinic or doctor's office may cause
apprehension and can produce an elevated reading, 25 to 30 mmHg higher
than that measured at home. Home measurement reduces the effects of
outside influences on blood pressure readings, supplements the doctor's
readings and provides a more accurate, complete blood pressure history.

Maintenance
Do not open the device. It uses delicate electrical components and an
intricate air unit that could be damaged. If you cannot fix the problem
using the troubleshooting instructions, request service from your dealer
or from the A&D service group. The A&D service group will provide
technical information, spare parts and units to authorized dealers.
The device was designed and manufactured for a long service life.
However it is generally recommended to have the monitor inspected
every 2 years, to ensure proper functioning and accuracy. Please contact
either your authorized dealer or A&D for maintenance.
