CARING FOR YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR
ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
To ensure you receive the maximum benefit from using
this product, please observe the following care guidelines.
What is blood pressure?
Blood pressure is the force generated by the blood
against the walls of arteries during cardiac contraction
and relaxation
(e.g., the pumping action of the heart).
• When not in use, store the unit in a dry place away
from direct sunlight.
• Do not immerse the unit in water. If it comes in contact
with water, dry it immediately with a soft lint-free cloth.
What are systolic pressure and diastolic
pressure?
When ventricles contract and pump blood out of the
heart, blood pressure reaches its maximum value. This
highest pressure in the cycle is known as systolic
pressure. When the heart relaxes between heartbeats,
the lowest blood pressure is diastolic pressure.
• Use a soft, slightly moistened cloth to wipe off the
unit and cuff. Do not use abrasive or corrosive
cleaning agents, as these may cause damage.
• Remove the batteries whenever you are planning
to store the unit for a long period of time.
• When replacing batteries, use new batteries as
specified in this user manual. Do not mix new and
old batteries.
What is mean arterial pressure (MAP)?
The mean arterial pressure (MAP) is the average
pressure that forces blood through the arteries. It is
not the average of the systolic and diastolic blood
pressure; rather, MAP corresponds to a state of
balance between the compressive and expansive
forces acting on the arterial wall when there is no
distension outward or inward. MAP is an excellent
way to evaluate the stress on the walls of your blood
vessels, and can be used to evaluate excessive load
on the cardiovascular system. Show your MAP history
to your doctor to provide additional information that
may help him or her understand your situation.
• Do not place objects such as stickers on the wrist
cuff or unit, as these may impair the measurement.
• Do not subject the unit to excessive force, shock, dust,
temperature changes, or humidity. Such treatment may
result in malfunction, a shorter electronic life span,
damaged batteries, or distorted parts.
• Do not tamper with the internal components. Doing
so will terminate the product warranty and may
cause damage.
• The unit contains no user- serviceable parts.
• If you no longer need to use this product, protect
the environment by bringing it to your dealer or
designated collection point for proper disposal.

Why measure your blood pressure?
Blood pressure measurement can highly reflect one's
health condition. High blood pressure is potentially
linked to serious illnesses such as stroke, heart
disease and kidney failure.
Since there is no symptom most of the time, many
hypertensive people do not realize they are at risk
until their health is seriously threatened.
NOTE
• Hypotension value is for reference only.
• Blood pressure is considered high when either the
diastolic or systolic blood pressure value exceeds
the normal range.
• Only a physician can tell you your normal blood
pressure range and the point at which you are at
risk. If the measurements taken with this product
fall outside the range, consult your physician.
What is the standard blood pressure
classification?
The following chart was taken from the World Health
Organization (WHO), and describes the various
classifications.
Why does my blood pressure fluctuate throughout
the day?
Individual blood pressure varies greatly both on a
daily and a seasonal or temperature basis. These
variations may be more pronounced in hypertensive
patients. Normally the blood pressure rises while at
work and is at its lowest during sleep.
The graph below illustrates the variations over a
single day with measurement taken every 5 minutes.
The thick line represents sleep time. The rises in
blood pressure at 4PM (A in the graph) and 12AM (B
in the graph) correspond to an attack of pain and
sexual intercourse (Beven, Honour & Stott, Clin. Sci.
36:329, 1969).

GETTING STARTED
INSTALLING AND REPLACING THE BATTERIES
1. Slide off the battery cover.
2. Install the batteries by matching the correct polarity,
as shown below. Always use the correct battery
type (2 alkaline LR03 AAA-size).
3. Replace the cover.
HOW THE BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR
WORKS
This product uses the Oscillometric Measuring
method to detect your blood pressure. Before every
measurement, the unit establishes a "zero pressure"
equivalent to the air pressure.
NOTE Replace the batteries whenever the weak
shows, the display is dim, or the
battery mark
display does not illuminate when the power is on.
Replace all the batteries at the same time - it is
dangerous to mix old and new batteries.
Then it starts inflating the wrist cuff to 180mmHg or
higher until it senses that it has blocked your blood in
the artery. After that, the deflation process starts,
during which time the unit detects pressure
oscillations generated by beat-to-beat pulsatile, which
is used to determine the systolic, mean and diastolic
pressure, and also your pulse rate. Any motion during
this period will result in an incorrect measurement.
After all readings are determined and displayed on the
LCD, the measurement is finished and the wrist cuff
automatically deflates.
Contact your local waste disposal authority for
instructions on how to dispose of used batteries. Used
batteries can be harmful to the environment, and
should not be thrown out with household trash.

To take a measurement:
1. Choose the position you from which you wish to
measure - sitting or lying down.
2. Position your body so that your wrist is parallel with
your heart, using the chart and illustrations below
as a guide.
• It is important to relax when taking your blood
pressure. Try to take a 15-minute rest before you
begin.
• Do not lean backward or bend your wrist inward
while taking a measurement.
• Avoid talking or moving your fingers and hand while
taking a measurement. Rapid movements or other
activities may alter your reading.
• Wait at least an hour before taking your blood
