INTENDED USE
The Labtron Digital Blood Pressure Monitor is intended to measure
arterial blood pressure. This device is intended for use by adults,
and not for use by children except under the supervision of an
adult. This device is not intended to replace regular medical
examinations. Review your procedure for using this monitor with
your physician, who is the only person qualified to interpret blood
pressure monitor results.

BATTERY INSTALLATION / REPLACEMENT
OP E N
1. Slide the battery cover off in the direction of
the arrow.
2. Install or replace the four AAA batteries,
oriented as shown by battery compartment
diagram, into the battery compartment.
3. Replace the battery cover. Ensure that the
battery cover is securely fastened.
Info: Ensure that the batteries are correctly
installed. Incorrect installation will prevent the
device from operating.
BLOOD PRESSURE
Blood Pressure is a measure of the blood’s pressure in the
circulatory system, which changes constantly during the course
of the cardiac cycle. Blood pressure readings report two values.
The higher reading (systolic pressure) shows the highest pressure
Labtron Digital Blood Pressure Monitor

in the arteries occurring when the heart contracts. The lower
reading (diastolic pressure) shows the lowest pressure in the
arteries, which occurs right before the heart contracts. Blood
pressure readings are written with the highest value first, then the
lowest value. Readings of 120/80 are considered to be normal, with
high blood pressure being defined as a systolic pressure which is
140mmHg or more at rest and a diastolic pressure which is 90mmHg
or more at rest. Only a patient’s physician is qualified to determine
whether the readings obtained are normal for that person.
Preparing to measure blood pressure
1. Blood pressure fluctuates continuously throughout the day. To
consistently track your blood pressure, try to take your blood
pressure at the same time each day.
2. Relax and remain still for 5 to 10 minutes before a blood pressure
measurement, and between blood pressure measurements.
3. Refrain from eating, smoking, and drinking, especially alcoholic
Labtron Digital Blood Pressure Monitor
6
beverages, before a measurement.
4. Remove any clothing on the upper arm to place the
cuff directly on the skin. Constriction of the upper
arm by clothing or a rolled-up sleeve, as shown at
excessive
right, may cause an inaccurate reading; remove any
constriction
constricting garments.
5. Sit down in a chair with back support
and place both feet on the floor.
6. Extend the arm from which the blood
pressure will be taken to the front or
side. Rest your hand, palm-up, on a
table as shown at right.
Info: Place the cuff at the same level as your heart to obtain accurate
measurements. Your heart is located slightly to the right of your left
armpit.

7. Attach the cuff: Hold the area of the cuff where
the hose exits the cuff firmly against the inside
of the bare upper arm directly over the brachial
artery, and the bottom of the cuff approximately
one inch (2-3cm) above the elbow, as shown in the
third picture at right. Never place the cuff over
clothing. Pull the opposite end of the cuff snugly
around the arm and secure with the hook and loop
fastener. The cuff should be snug, but not too tight.
If one or two fingers can fit between the cuff and
the arm, the cuff is properly secured. If you are
unable to fit the cuff as described above, a smaller
or larger cuff should be used.

1. Ensure that cuff is properly placed and that you are positioned as
described in previous paragraphs.
2. Press the ON/OFF button. All LCD symbols will appear
momentarily. If a downward arrow symbol displays, press
the exhaust valve button (see earlier labeled picture) located
between the inflation bulb and the tube to release the residual
pressure from the cuff.

Info: The low battery symbol will also appear at this time while the
monitor checks the power level. This does not indicate that the batteries
are low unless the low battery symbol remains on continuously.
3. After "0" displays, pressurize the cuff by squeezing the bulb until
the pressure value displayed is 50mmHg above your usual systolic
pressure. If you do not know your usual systolic pressure, squeeze
the bulb just until 200mmHg displays.
4. The cuff will automatically deflate after you stop pressurizing the
cuff. If an upward arrow symbol displays, you must inflate the
cuff to a higher pressure than you did the first time. If an upward
arrow does not display, the monitor is taking your measurement.
Remain calm and still to avoid causing any measurement error.

5. The systolic pressure, diastolic pressure,
and pulse will display in the format shown
at right. The device will completely deflate

when measurement is finished. To accelerate
deflation, press the exhaust valve button.

Info: To stop measurement in progress for whatever reason, press the
exhaust valve button to release the pressure and turn off the device.
Info: If during measurement the power drops to an insufficient level,
the device will end the measurement and display the low battery
symbol. Replace the batteries and repeat the measurement.
Info: If the device cannot detect your pulse, it will end the
measurement. Wait several minutes, ensure that you and the cuff are
positioned properly, and try again.
6. The device will automatically shut off three minutes after
completing a reading, or you may turn it off manually by pressing
the ON/OFF button.

7. If performing measurement for the first time, repeat the
measurement two or more times to ensure that you and cuff are
positioned correctly and that results are accurate and consistent.
Record your results; there is a log provided, with examples, at
the end of this manual for this purpose. Always check with your
physician to ensure that readings are performed correctly. If you
have concerns or questions about your results, always contact
your physician. Only your physician is qualified to analyze
blood pressure.

MAINTENANCE
s NOTICE: To prevent product damage, please follow these
recommended care and maintenance instructions:
Do not drop or pull excessively on monitor components or subject them to strong impact.
Do not use monitor close to any device with a strong electrical field such as television,
microwave oven, X-Ray equipment, etc.
Never inflate cuff above 300mmHg. Never inflate cuff unless it is positioned on an arm.
Do not expose the monitor components to direct sunlight, high temperature, or high humidity.
Do not put any part of monitor in contact with sharp objects which could pierce the material
and cause damage.
Do not dismantle or disassemble monitor components.
Cleaning
Wipe off all components with a clean, dry cloth. Do not use solvents or other
petroleum-based cleaners. Do not press cuff with a hot iron.
Storage
Always deflate the cuff completely before storage.
Remove the batteries when the device is to be stored for extended periods of
time. Info: Removing the batteries will erase all readings in memory.
