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 20-32 cm.
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
See page 15)
between the cuff and arm. (
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. DO
NOT measure your blood pressure when it is too cold (below 10°C) or too hot
(above 40°C) in the room.
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.

GENERAL REMARKS
English
GENERAL REMARKS
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.
- Eng 4 -
Precautions for use
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.

TIPS FOR OBTAINING ACCURATE MEASUREMENTS
Your blood pressure varies according to your posture, the time of day and a range of
other factors. Ideally, you should measure your blood pressure in the same posture
at the same time every day.
■ Taking measurements while sitting
1 Place your arm on a table or
similar surface with your forearm
extended.
2 It is important to have the arm cuff
level with your heart.
3 Open your hand slightly on the
table so that your palm is facing
up and your fingers are relaxed.
4 Do not move your body or talk
while taking the measurement.
■ Measurement in laying posture
* Relax yourself not
to apply pressure to
the arm cuff.
1 Lie down your head facing the celling.
2 Lightly open your hand with palm up and straighten your arm.
3 Relax your body, arm and fingers.
4 Do not move your body or talk during measurement.
■ You may use your right arm to measure your blood pressure.
Blood pressure rate is likely to differ by as much as 10mmHg when measured on
the left arm instead of the right (or vice-versa). Measure your blood pressure on the
same arm each day.
- Eng 16 -
2 Plug the air hose
connector into the main
unit.
• Plug the air hose connector firmly
into the air hose socket on the
main unit as illustrated.
3 Start measurement.
• Press the "START/STOP" switch.
• All of the segment will be displayed

MEASURING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
English
MEASURING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
• The Blood pressure monitor automatically carries out
pressurization until the pressure that is best suited to the
blood pressure measurement is reached.
• When the unit determines that an adequate pressure is not
obtained, the unit starts pressurization again.
• Wait a while after the completion of pressurization. Then,
the
mark comes on and the unit automatically starts
measuring your blood pressures.
• When the unit detects your pulse, the
mark flashes on
and off, then the unit gives your blood pressure value on
the lower section of the display.
• Upon completion of measurement, the unit automatically
exhausts air from the cuff. Then, the Systolic blood
pressure/Diastolic blood pressure/pulse will appear on
display.
• As long as the unit functions correctly, the blood pressure
and the pulse rate for the result with the record of the time
and date are automatically stored in memory as one set of
data.
• Up to 7 sets of measurement data can be stored in the
memory. If you measure your blood pressure when 7 sets
of measurements have already been stored in memory, the
earliest set of measurements is automatically deleted to
make way for the new measurements.
- Eng 18 -
4 Finishing measurement.
• Press “START/STOP” switch to turn
the monitor off.
* When you want to stop measurement,
press “START/STOP” switch. The
air in the cuff is exhausted to stop
measurement.
[Manual pressurization]
• Keep “START/STOP” switch held pressed until
the pressure value you want to stop pressurization
is reached (approximately 40mmHg higher
than the Systolic blood pressure). You can stop
pressurization by the unit by releasing the switch at the
aforementioned value is reached.
The upper pressure limit is 280mmHg
AUTOMATIC POWER OFF FEATURE
• After taking the blood pressure measurement, pressing the “START/STOP” switch
will turn the monitor off. However, if you do not press the switch, the monitor’s
Auto OFF function will automatically turn the monitor off after 3 minutes.

What is blood pressure?
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.

Your blood pressure changes all the time.
Blood pressure value (mmHg)
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 within a day.

ABOUT “BLOOD PRESSURE”
English
BLOOD PRESSURE Q&A
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
Why does the blood pressure obtained vary with measurement?
Q
A
What is the benefit of measuring my blood pressure at home?
Our blood pressure is adjusted by the function of automatic nerve. Blood pressure
differs with every heart beat. We are likely to think that our blood pressure is constant,
but it varies if you take measurements in repetition. Blood pressure is susceptible
to the time of day, such as forenoon and afternoon, season and atmospheric
temperature. In addition, blood pressure is easily affected by mental stress or
emotional ups and downs. It tends to increase when you feel tension or decrease
when you are relaxed.
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.
