INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Omron IntelliSense™ Automatic Blood
Pressure Monitor with Easy Wrap Cuff, HEM-773AC. Although
your blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day, no self-adjustment
is necessary as the monitor intelligently adjusts to your changing
conditions. The IntelliSense™ monitor uses fuzzy logic intelligence
to sense both your systolic and diastolic blood pressure values, and the
result is personalized inflation with every reading. Arm discomfort and
misreading due to improper cuff inflation are virtually eliminated.
Your new OMRON monitor uses 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. At the press of a button, the monitor automatically fills
the cuff with air, starts deflation, then displays your systolic, diastolic,
and pulse readings on an extra large display panel.
Please read this instruction manual thoroughly before using
this unit. For specific information on your own blood pressure,
CONTACT YOUR PHYSICIAN.
NOTE:
This device is a digital monitor intended for the use in measuring
blood pressure and pulse rate in adult population with the arm
circumference ranging from 9 inches to 17 inches (from 23 cm to 43 cm).

QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE
1. Avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes before
taking a measurement.
2. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your upper left arm.
3. 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.
4. Wrap the arm cuff around your upper left arm, making sure that
the bottom edge of the cuff is approximately 1/2'' to 1'' above the elbow.
5. Pull the end of the cuff so that the entire cuff is evenly tightened
around your arm, and the Green Marker on the cuff is above
the brachial artery.
6. Press the ON/OFF button.
7. After the Heart Symbol ( ) appears on the digital panel, press the
START button, and remain still until the measurement is complete.
8. When measurement is complete, the monitor displays your blood
pressure and pulse rate, and automatically deflates the cuff.
9. Wait 2-3 minutes before taking another blood pressure measurement.
You may require more rest time between readings depending
on your individual physiological characteristics.

BATTERY INSTALLATION/REPLACEMENT
1. Slide the battery cover off
in the direction of the arrow.
2. Install or replace 4 “AA” size
batteries so the + (positive)
and – (negative) polarities
match the polarities of the
battery compartment as indicated.
3. Replace the battery cover.
NOTES:
If the Low Battery
Indicator ( ) appears
on the display, replace
all four batteries.
Long-life alkaline
batteries are recommended.
Remove the batteries if the monitor will not be used for
an extended period of time.
If the batteries remain removed longer than 30 seconds,
the set date and time will be deleted.

HOW TO USE THE AC ADAPTER
To avoid potential damage to the monitor, use only the exclusive Omron
AC adapter (HEM-ADPT1).
To connect the AC adapter
1. Insert the AC adapter plug into the AC Adapter jack on the
right side of the main unit.
2. Plug in the AC adapter into a 120V AC outlet (50 - 60 cycles).
To remove the AC adapter
disconnect the adapter plug
from the AC outlet first and
then disconnect the cord from
the monitor’s jack.
NOTE:
The monitor is designed not
to draw power from the
batteries when the AC
adapter is in use.

HOW TO TAKE A READING
If you are going to use the unit’s memory function
to automatically store the measurement values, you
need to choose user A or B on the User Selector
before starting a measurement.
USER
1. Press the ON/OFF button.
a) All display symbols appear for
approximately one second.
b) When the monitor becomes ready
to measure, the Heart Symbol ( )
appears on the display.
2. Press the START button and remain still.
As the cuff begins to inflate, the monitor
automatically determines your ideal
inflation level. Because this monitor
detects the pulse even during inflation,
do not move your arm and remain still
until the entire measurement completes.
• If you want to stop the inflation or
measurement, press the ON/OFF button.
The monitor will stop inflating and start
deflating rapidly, and the monitor
will turn off.
3. Inflation stops automatically
and measurement is started.
As the cuff slowly deflates, decreasing
numbers appear on the display and the
Heart Symbol ( ) flashes at every
heartbeat. In rare circumstances, a higher
inflation may be necessary. In those
cases, the monitor reinflates the cuff up
to 30 mmHg higher than initial inflation
and restarts the measurement.

4. When the measurement is complete, the arm cuff
completely deflates and your blood pressure and
pulse rate are displayed.
NOTE:
The monitor automatically stores blood
pressure and pulse rate into the memory.
• When 21 sets of readings are stored
in memory, the oldest set will be deleted
to store a new set.
5. Press the ON/OFF button to turn the monitor off.
NOTE:
If you forget to turn the monitor off,
it will automatically shut itself off
after five minutes.
Instructions for special conditions:
• If your systolic pressure is known
to be more than 220 mmHg, press and
hold the START button until the monitor
inflates 30 to 40 mmHg higher than your
suspected systolic pressure.
NOTE:
Do not apply more pressure
than necessary.
The monitor will not inflate
above 280 mmHg.
