GENERAL REMARKS
English
General remarks on blood pressure and blood pressure
measurement
1. To deflate the cuff quickly, press the “START/STOP” switch.
2. The attached cuff is suitable for arm circumferences of 23-33 cm (9-13
inches).
3. When attaching the cuff, the air hose should be placed on the inside of your
arm on top of the artery.
4. Self measurement is not therapy! In no event should you change the dosage
of your medication prescribed by your physician.
5. As preparation for measuring your blood pressure, you should urinate and
then remain relatively still for 10 to 15 minutes prior to measurement.
6. Exercising, eating, drinking, smoking, etc., prior to measurement may affect
the results.
7. Your blood pressure varies constantly throughout the day. Measurements
should be taken regularly at the same time each day.
8. DO NOT place too much emphasis on the results of one measurement. Keep
a continuing record of your blood pressure variations. A complete picture can
only be obtained from a large number of readings.
9. Emotional stress tends to cause your blood pressure to rise.
To obtain correct blood pressure measurements
1. Take five or six deep breaths and then relax before measuring your blood
pressure. If you are tense when taking the measurement, you will not get a
valid reading.
2. Your blood pressure will be elevated if you are anxious or irritated, suffering
from lack of sleep or constipation, or have just taken some exercise or eaten
a meal.
3. Wrap the cuff around your arm and tighten it so that one finger can be
inserted between the cuff and arm. (
See page 14)
4. DO NOT measure your blood pressure after bathing or drinking.
5. If you feel the need to urinate, do so before measuring your blood pressure.
6. Measure your blood pressure where the room temperature is around 20°C
(68°F). DO NOT measure your blood pressure when it is too cold (below
10°C/50°F) or too hot (above 40°C/104°F) in the room.
- Eng 2 -
7. DO NOT try to measure your blood pressure immediately after drinking coffee
or tea or after smoking.
8. Measure your blood pressure when you are relaxed and still. Keep the center
of the cuff at the level of your heart and DO NOT move your arm or talk.
9. DO NOT measure blood pressure when the cuff has been on your arm for
a few minutes or more. During this time, your arm will have built up a higher
blood pressure and you will not get valid reading.
10. The figure below shows the blood pressure classifications under the WHO
standards.
Remarks:
The graph is not exact, but may be
used as a guide in understanding
non-invasive blood pressure
measurements. The device is only
intended for use with adults.
Definitions and Classifications of Blood Pressure Levels
Measure your blood pressure at the same time each day.
* Your blood pressure changes all the time. This means that data gathered over
a long period has far more significance than data from just one measurement.
For this reason, you must measure your blood pressure on a daily basis. Ideally,
you should measure your blood pressure at the same time each day wherever
possible.

GENERAL REMARKS
PRECAUTIONS FOR USE AND MAINTENANCE
Precautions for use
English
1. If you suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure or other circulatory
disease, consult your physician before using the monitor.
2. If the cuff pressure feels abnormal or you experience any other irregularity
while using the cuff, reduce the pressure immediately by pressing the
“START/STOP” switch and then consult the sales outlet where you
purchased the monitor.
3. If you think the measurement is abnormal or if measurement makes you feel
unwell, discontinue use and consult your physician.
4. Blood pressure measurement may not be possible for anyone with a weak
pulse or arrhythmia.
5. Repeated blood pressure measurement may cause problems such as
congestion or swelling in some people.
6. Frequently repeated blood pressure measurements will not give accurate
results. Allow an interval of about 3 minutes between measurements.
7. If you suffer from a severe problem with blood circulation in your arms,
consult your physician before using the monitor. Failure to do so could be
hazardous to your health.
8. Measurement may not be possible for anyone with insufficient blood flow to
the area where measurements will be taken or who suffers from a frequent
irregular heartbeat. Consult your physician for advice on whether to use the
monitor.
9. DO NOT wrap the cuff around an injured arm.
10. DO NOT wrap the cuff around an arm in which a drip (intravenous infusion)
is inserted or which is being used for blood transfusion as part of medical
treatment. Doing so could result in an injury or a serious accident.
11. DO NOT use the monitor in the vicinity of flammable gases such as those
used for anaesthesia. Doing so could ignite the gases and cause an
explosion.
12. DO NOT use the monitor in enriched oxygen environments such as a
hospital’s hyperbaric chamber or oxygen tent. Doing so could ignite the
oxygen and cause a fire.
13. DO NOT use mobile phones near the monitor as this could result in a
malfunction.
14. If you use a cardiac pacemaker, consult your physician before using the
monitor.
- Eng 4 -
15. Be sure to use this unit only for measuring blood pressure. DO NOT use it for
any other purpose.
16. DO NOT use this unit on infants.
17. Blood pressure measurements taken using this monitor are equivalent to
those obtained by a trained observer using the cuff/stethoscope auscultation
method within the limits prescribed by the American National Standard for
electronic or automated sphygmomanometers.
18. Blood pressure measurement may not be possible for anyone with common
arrhythmias such as atrial or ventricular premature beats or atrial fibrillation.
Maintenance Precautions
1. DO NOT store the blood pressure monitor in locations exposed to direct
sunlight, high temperatures (over 60°C/ 140°F), low temperatures (below
-20°C/-4°F), high relative humidity (over 95%) or excessive amounts of dust.
2. DO NOT drop the blood pressure monitor or subject it to other shocks or
vibration.
3. Remove the batteries if the monitor will be left unused for a long period.

Your blood pressure changes all the time.
Your blood pressure differs according to your age, gender and a range of other
factors. It is likely to be affected by your biorhythm during the day and by your
posture, physical activities, mental activities, level of stress and even by the air
temperature. The blood pressure of a healthy person generally varies by 20 to 50
mmHg within a day.
Blood pressure value (mmHg)
English
The heart is a pump that circulates blood throughout your body. Blood is pumped
from the heart at a constant pressure into arteries. This pressure is called the
arterial blood pressure and represents, in general terms, your blood pressure.
Blood pressure is indicated by several kinds of pressures, including the systolic
pressure that occurs when the heart pumps blood and the diastolic pressure that
occurs when blood returns to the heart.

Q
Why is the blood pressure measured at home different from that measured by
the physician or at a hospital?
A
Your blood pressure may vary due to exercise, the ambient temperature or
your mental state. When you have a physician or nurse measure your blood
pressure, the pressure value is likely to be 10 to 20 mmHg higher than usual
due to anxiety and/or stress. Knowing what affects your blood pressure helps
you to better monitor your health.
Q
A
What is the benefit of measuring my blood pressure at home?
Blood pressure measurements taken at home give reliable data as they can
be taken when you are in a stable and relaxed condition. Physicians place
considerable importance on blood pressure measurements taken at home.
You should measure your blood pressure at the same time each day and
record the variations in your blood pressure.
Always consult your physician for an interpretation of your blood
pressure readings and to determine the proper treatment.
