INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Omron HEM-432C Manual Inflation
Blood Pressure Monitor.
Fill-in for future reference
DATE PURCHASED: ______________
SERIAL NUMBER: ________________
Staple your purchase receipt here.
The monitor features an easy-to-squeeze inflation bulb that allows
you to quickly inflate the cuff. The measurement reading is clearly
displayed on a large digital panel.
Omron digital blood pressure monitors use the oscillometric method
of blood pressure measurement. This means the monitor detects
your blood’s movement through your brachial artery and converts the
movements into a digital reading. An oscillometric monitor does not
need a stethoscope so the monitor is simple to use.
The Omron HEM-432C Manual Inflation Blood Pressure Monitor
is intended for home use.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES
To assure the correct use of the product basic safety measures should
always be followed including the precautions listed below:
Read all information in the instruction book and any other literature
included in the box before using the unit.
Contact your physician for specific information about your blood
pressure. Follow the instructions of your healthcare provider.
Operate the unit only as intended. Do not use for any other purpose.
The unit is intended for use in measuring blood pressure and pulse
rate in adult patient population. Do not use on infants.
Do not use a cellular phone near the unit. It may result in
operational failure.
Changes or modifications not approved by Omron Healthcare will
void the user warranty. Do not disassemble or attempt to repair the
unit or components.

QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE
1. Avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes before
taking a measurement.
2. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. The bottom of the cuff
should be about 1/2 inch above the elbow. The cuff tab should lie
over the brachial artery on the inside of the arm.
3. Pull the cuff so that it is tightened evenly around your arm. Insert one
finger under cuff to check fit. Press the sewn hook material firmly
against the pile side of the cuff. Make sure that your skin will not be
pinched in the D-ring once you inflate the cuff. Immediately deflate
the cuff and readjust it if skin becomes pinched.
4. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and place your left arm
on a table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart.
5. Turn the monitor on, and after the Ready To Measure Symbol ( )
appears next to a zero on the digital panel, rapidly squeeze the
inflation bulb to inflate the cuff. Stop pumping when the numbers
on the display are approximately 40 mmHg higher than your
normal systolic blood pressure. Do not inflate over 280 mmHg.
6. The cuff will deflate automatically. Remain still throughout
the entire reading.
7. When measurement is complete, the monitor alternately displays
your blood pressure/ pulse rate on the digital panel. Press the Air
Release Button to remove air in the cuff.
8. Wait 2-3 minutes before taking another blood pressure measurement.

BATTERY INSTALLATION / REPLACEMENT
1. Slide the battery cover off in the direction
of the arrow.
2. Install 4 “AA” size batteries so + (positive)
and – (negative) polarities match the polarities
of the battery compartment as indicated.
3. Replace the battery cover.
NOTE: If the Low Battery Indicator appears on the
display, replace all four batteries.
Long-life alkaline batteries are recommended.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
To keep your digital blood pressure monitor in the best condition and
protect the unit from damage follow the directions listed below:
Clean the monitor with a soft dry cloth. Do not use any abrasive or
volatile cleaners. Do not attempt to clean the cuff. Never immerse the
monitor or any components in water.
Store the monitor in a safe and dry location. Do not fold the cuff
and tubing tightly. Do not subject the monitor to extreme hot or cold
temperatures, humidity and direct sunlight.
Avoid subjecting the monitor to strong shocks, such as dropping the
unit on the floor.
Remove the batteries if the unit will not be used for three months or
longer. Always replace all the batteries with new ones at the same time.
Use the unit consistent with the instruction provided in this manual.
Use only authorized parts and accessories.

HOW TO APPLY THE ARM CUFF
Pile Material
1. If the cuff is assembled correctly, the sewn
hook material will be on the outside
of the cuff loop and the metal D-ring
will not touch your skin.
Sewn Hook
Material
2. Pass the end of the cuff furthest from
the tubing through the metal D-ring to
form a loop. The smooth cloth should
be on the inside of the cuff loop.

Smooth Cloth
3. Put your left arm through the cuff loop.
The bottom of the cuff should be
approximately 1/2 inch above the
elbow. The cuff tab on the cuff
should lie over the brachial
artery on the inside of the arm.
Tube should run down center
of arm even with middle finger.

HOW TO APPLY THE ARM CUFF
4. Pull the cuff so that the top and bottom edges are
tightened evenly around your arm.
5. When the cuff is positioned correctly, press the
sewn hook material FIRMLY against the pile
side of the cuff.
6. Make certain the cuff fits snugly around your arm.
The cuff should make good contact with your skin.
7. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and
place your arm on a table so that the cuff is at the
same level as your heart.
8. Relax your arm and turn your palm upward.
9. Be sure there are no kinks in the air tubing.

HOW TO TAKE A MEASUREMENT
Please read “How To Apply The Arm Cuff” before
taking a reading.
1. Press the ON/OFF Button.
a) All display symbols appear for about one second.
This is the initial LCD Test.
b) The display symbols disappear and the Deflation
Indication Symbol ( ) starts to flash.
c) When the monitor completes the necessary
preparations before measurement, the Heart Symbol
( ) appears next to a zero. Wait for the Heart
Symbol ( ) before taking a measurement.

2. Begin inflating the cuff by rapidly squeezing the inflation
bulb until you have reached approximately 40 mmHg higher
than your normal systolic reading. If your normal systolic
blood pressure is unknown, inflate the cuff to 180 mmHg.

HOW TO TAKE A MEASUREMENT
3. Remain still. The cuff will begin to deflate automatically.
4. As the cuff deflates, decreasing numbers
appear on the display. The Heart Symbol
( ) flashes at every heartbeat.

5. When measurement is complete, the Heart
Symbol ( ) stops flashing and your blood
pressure and pulse rate are displayed alternately.
6. When the Deflation Indication Symbol
( ) appears on the display, push the
Air Release Button to release any
air left in the cuff.
