Thank you for purchasing the OMRON M6 Comfort Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor.
The OMRON M6 Comfort is a compact, fully automatic blood pressure monitor, operating on
the oscillometric principle. It measures your blood pressure and pulse rate simply and quickly.
For comfortable controlled inflation without the need of pressure pre-setting or re-inflation the
device uses its advanced “IntelliSense” technology.
Intended Use
This device is a digital monitor intended for use in measuring blood pressure and pulse rate in
adult patient population who can understand this instruction manual with the arm
circumference range printed on the arm cuff. The device detects the appearance of irregular
heartbeats during measurement and gives a warning signal with measurement result.

1. Know Your Device
Display Symbols
Irregular Heartbeat Symbol (
)
Normal Heartbeat
When the monitor detects an irregular rhythm two or more times during the
Pulse
measurement, the irregular heartbeat symbol (
) will appear on the
Blood pressure
display with the measurement values.
An irregular heartbeat rhythm is defined as a rhythm that is 25% less or 25%
more than the average rhythm detected while the monitor is measuring the
systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
If the irregular heartbeat symbol (
) displays with your measurement
results, we recommend you consult your physician. Follow the directions
of your physician.
Movement Error Symbol (
Irregular Heartbeat
Short Long
EN
Pulse

)
The movement error symbol is displayed if you move your body during the measurement. Please remove the arm
cuff, and wait 2-3 minutes. Take another measurement, remain still during measurement.
Average Value Symbol (
)
The average value symbol is displayed when you press and hold the memory button for more than 3 seconds. The
most recent average value appears on the display screen.
Cuff Wrap Guide Lamp (
/
)
If the cuff was wrapped too loosely, it may cause unreliable results. If the wrapping of cuff is too loose, the cuff wrap
guide Lamp
lights in “orange”. Otherwise
lights in “green”. This is the function which is used as an aid in
determining if the cuff is wrapped snugly enough.

1. Know Your Device
Blood Pressure Colour Indicator
If your systolic or diastolic pressure is above the standard range (135 mmHg for the
systolic blood pressure and/or 85 mmHg for the diastolic blood pressure), the blood
pressure colour indicator will light in “orange” when the measurement result is displayed. If
they are within the standard range, the blood pressure colour indicator will light in “green”.
The JNC7* Guideline recommends the following guideline.
General Guidelines for Blood Pressure
Prehypertension at Office
Hypertension at Home
Systolic Blood Pressure
120-139 mmHg
135 mmHg
Diastolic Blood Pressure
80-89 mmHg
85 mmHg
These are from statistical values for blood pressure.

) appears on the display, turn the monitor off, then replace all batteries
at the same time. Long life alkaline batteries are recommended.
• The measurement values continue to be stored in memory even after the batteries are replaced.
• The supplied batteries may have a shorter life.
Disposal of used batteries should be carried out in accordance with the national/local regulations for the
disposal of batteries.

The letter identifiers on the cover pages correspond to those in the body of this page.
3.1 Applying the Arm Cuff
Remove tight-fitting clothing or tight rolled up sleeve from your left upper arm.
Do not place the arm cuff over thick clothes.
EN
1. Insert N the air plug into J the air jack securely.
2. Apply the arm cuff to your left upper arm.
The bottom edge of the arm cuff should be a 1 to 2 cm above the elbow.
O Air tube is on the inside of your arm and aligned with your middle finger.
3. Secure closed with the fabric fastener.
Notes:
• When you take a measurement on the right arm, the air tube will be at the side of your elbow. Be careful
not to rest your arm on the air tube. --- b
• The blood pressure can differ between the right arm and the left arm, and therefore also the measured
blood pressure values can be different. OMRON recommends to always use the same arm for
measurement. If the values between both arms differ substantially, please check with your physician
which arm to use for your measurement.

3. Using the Device
3.2 How to Sit Correctly
To take a measurement, you need to be relaxed and comfortably seated, under
comfortable room temperature. Avoid bathing, drinking alcohol or caffeine, smoking,
exercising or eating 30 minutes before taking a measurement.

Important information regarding Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC)
With the increased number of electronic devices such as PC’s and mobile (cellular) telephones, medical devices in
use may be susceptible to electromagnetic interference from other devices. Electromagnetic interference may result
in incorrect operation of the medical device and create a potentially unsafe situation.
Medical devices should also not interfere with other devices.
In order to regulate the requirements for EMC (Electro Magnetic Compatibility) with the aim to prevent unsafe product
situations, the EN60601-1-2:2007 standard has been implemented. This standard defines the levels of immunity to
electromagnetic interferences as well as maximum levels of electromagnetic emissions for medical devices.
This medical device manufactured by OMRON HEALTHCARE conforms to this EN60601-1-2:2007 standard for
both immunity and emissions.
Nevertheless, special precautions need to be observed:
• Do not use mobile (cellular) telephones and other devices, which generate strong electrical or electromagnetic
fields, near the medical device. This may result in incorrect operation of the device and create a potentially unsafe
situation. Recommendation is to keep a minimum distance of 7 m. Verify correct operation of the device in case
the distance is shorter.
Further documentation in accordance with EN60601-1-2:2007 is available at OMRON HEALTHCARE EUROPE at
the address mentioned in this instruction manual.
Documentation is also available at www.omron-healthcare.com.

8. Some Useful Information about Blood Pressure
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is a measure of the force of blood flowing against the walls of the arteries.
Arterial blood pressure is constantly changing during the course of the heart’s cycle.
The highest pressure in the cycle is called the Systolic Blood Pressure; the lowest is the
Diastolic Blood Pressure. Both pressures, the Systolic and Diastolic, are necessary to enable
a physician to evaluate the status of a patient’s blood pressure.
What is Arrhythmia?
Arrhythmia is a condition where the heartbeat rhythm is abnormal due to flaws in the bioelectrical system that drives the heartbeat. Typical symptoms are skipped heartbeats,
premature contraction, an abnormally rapid (tachycardia) or slow (bradycardia) pulse.
Why is it a Good Thing to measure Blood Pressure at Home?
