INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Omron HEM-431C Manual Inflation Blood Pressure Monitor.
This easy-to-use monitor quickly detects your blood pressure and pulse measurements
and displays them on a clear digital panel.
Your new HEM-431C features an easy-to-squeeze inflation bulb that allows you to quickly
fill the cuff with air. Stop pumping and the cuff deflates automatically. Error indicators alert
you to incorrect procedures and an automatic power-off function conserves battery.
Please read this instruction manual thoroughly before using the Omron HEM-431
C Manual Inflation Blood Pressure Monitor. For specific information on your own
blood pressure, CONTACT YOUR PHYSICIAN.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Blood pressure is the force on the walls of your blood vessels
as blood flows through them.
Your heart is like a pump. When it contracts, pressure
increases (systolic pressure).
When your heart relaxes blood pres-sure decreases (diastolic
pressure).
When a doctor takes your blood pressure, he or she measures
both your systolic and diastolic pressures and records them
as numbers.
The more difficult it is for your blood to flow through your blood vessels, the higher both
numbers will be. When blood pressure is consistently above normal it is called hypertension
(high blood pressure).
Your blood pressure changes constantly. Blood pressure changes from day to day and minute
to minute according to your body’s needs.
One or two readings will not determine your normal blood pressure. It is very important to take
regular, daily measurements and to keep accurate records. In partnership with your doctor,
an accurate record of your blood pressure over a period of time can be a valuable aid in
diagnosing and preventing potential health problems.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
The World Health Organization (WHO) developed the following Blood Pressure
Classification. This classification, however, is only a general guideline because blood
pressure varies from person to person according to age, weight, and health status.
CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN TO DETERMINE YOUR NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE.
WHO Blood Pressure Classification
mmHg
Hypertension
95
Borderline
90
Diastollic
Normal
Systolic

160
mmHg
NOTE: There is not a universally accepted definition of hypotension (low blood pressure),
but a systolic pressure below 99 mm Hg is usually regarded as hypotension.
