Step Three
Arm Cuff Blood
Pressure Monitor
63-1514
Attaching the Arm Cuff
1. Roll up your sleeve to prevent constricting
circulation to your arm.
5. Fasten the cuff snugly, leaving at least a
finger’s room in between the cuff and your
arm.
2. Insert the plug
at the end of
the tube into
the jack on the
left side of the
monitor.
Step One
Installing Batteries
1. Press the tab to lift up the battery compartment cover.
2. Insert four AA batteries (not supplied) into the compartment as
indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –) marked inside.
Step Two
Setting the Date and Time
1. Press MODE. The month digit flashes.
2. Repeatedly press (or hold down) SET to set
the correct month.
3. Sit upright on
the chair, and
with your palm
face up, thread
the cuff through your arm until it reaches
your biceps, just above your elbow.
6. Place your arm on the table so the cuff is at
the same height as your heart. Be sure the
inflation tube lines up with your arm
4. Adjust the cuff so the inflation tube is on the
top of your arm as shown. Leave the cuff’s
bottom edge about 0.8 to 1.2 inches (2 – 3
cm) above the crease of your elbow.
3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to set the date, hour,
and minute.
4. Press MODE to complete setting.
3. Pull down the cover then press the cover down to snap it in
place.
When the display dims or the batteries weaken, ! appears on the
display. Replace the batteries.
What’s Included
Or
Using an AC Adapter
You can also power the blood pressure monitor using a 6V DC, 1A
AC adapter. To connect an AC adapter to the blood pressure monitor, attach a size M AdaptaplugTM to the adapter with its tip set to
positive. Insert the adapter’s barrel plug into the monitor’s DC 6V
jack. Then plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

Step Four
Measuring Blood Pressure
1. Press START/STOP. All display segments appear briefly and the monitor automatically inflates to
160 mmHg, or the necessary inflation level. The systolic rate decreases gradually, G appears,
and ♥ flashes at the same rate as your heartbeat.

Environizer
2. Once your blood pressure is detected, the monitor deflates slowly. The blood pressure reading
and pulse rate appear. The air pressure in the arm cuff releases.

3. To stop the measurement at any time, press START/STOP.
•
Battery Charger
# appears briefly when:
•
You do not wrap or position the cuff around your arm correctly.
•
You talk or move the body during measurement.
•
You have incorrect posture.
•
The batteries become weak and ! flashes.
Step Five
Understanding Blood Pressure
Hints
Specifications
Recalling Stored Readings
Blood pressure is the pressure or force of circulating blood against the walls
of the arteries. Systolic pressure is the highest pressure exerted when the
heart contracts and pumps blood to your body. Diastolic pressure is the
lowest pressure exerted when the heart pulls the blood back. Blood
pressure includes systolic and diastolic pressures, and is read as 120/80
mmHg, with the systolic reading first. Both readings are an important
diagnostic index for a physician to evaluate the status of a patient’s blood
pressure and prescribe the right medication. The ideal time for measuring
blood pressure is in the morning after getting up, before any activity, and
having any food.
•
Take your blood pressure measurements
at the same time under the same
conditions every day.
•
Sit in a comfortable position with your legs
uncrossed and feet flat on the floor.
•
Relax and rest for 10 minutes before
measuring blood pressure. Do not talk,
gesture, or vibrate the blood pressure
monitor.
•
Wait at least three minutes between
measurements.
•
Compress the arm cuff to expel remaining
air pressure each time you complete a
measurement.
•
The systolic and diastolic readings
from this monitor are for reference only.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions.
•
Do not measure blood pressure right after
smoking or consuming beverages containing caffeine. Wait at least 30-45 minutes.

Why Monitor Blood Pressure At Home?
Blood pressure varies based on many conditions and factors. Judgment
cannot be made by just one measurement. Monitoring blood pressure at
home provides you an important way of monitoring your health. Keeping
track of your blood pressure also helps your doctor diagnose and offer the
right medication for you.
4. To turn off the blood pressure monitor, wait
for one minute for it to turn off
automatically.
5. To erase all stored readings, remove and
re-install the batteries.
What Is Normal Blood Pressure?
Based on World Health Organization classifications, blood pressure
readings are as follows:
±$#66'4;016'5±
• Dispose of old batteries promptly and
properly.
• Do not burn or bury batteries.
• Use only fresh batteries of the required
size and recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard,
alkaline, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.
• If you do not plan to use the blood
pressure monitor for a month or more,
remove the batteries. Batteries can
leak chemicals that can damage
electronic parts.

• You must use a Class 2 power source
that supplies 6V DC and delivers at
least 1A. Its center tip must be set to
positive and its plug must fit the DC 6V
jack. Using an adapter that does not
meet these specifications could
damage the monitor or the adapter.
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
monitor before you connect it to AC
power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you
disconnect it from the monitor.
Normal
within 130/85 mmHg
High
over 130/85 mmHg but
below 139/89 mmHg
Hypertension
over 139/89 mmHg
Variations in Blood Pressure
Care
Blood pressure varies by many factors like physical condition, weight,
anxiety, season, and time of day. In general, it is lower in the morning, and
increases from afternoon to evening. It is lower in the summer and higher in
the winter. It rises while at work and lowers while sleeping. It is also affected
by alcohol consumption, smoking, and medication. Keep the blood pressure monitor dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use and store the blood pressure monitor only in normal
temperature environments. Handle the blood pressure monitor carefully; do not drop it. Keep the blood pressure monitor away from dust and
dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
Notes
•
When installed, batteries automatically disconnect when you plug an AC
adapter into the blood pressure monitor.
•
While setting the date and time, if you do not press any key within one
minute, the current time is saved and the monitor automatically turns off.
•
The clock uses the 12-hour time format. F appears for a PM hour.
•
Blood pressure measurement varies in both arms. To get the most accurate reading, use the same arm to take a measurement.
•
Do not tangle the inflation tube during measurement.
•
This monitor complies with EMC requirements according to
IEC60601-1-2.

• Blood pressure readings measured from this monitor
are equivalent to those measured from the cuff/
stethoscope auscultation method performed by a
physician or a trained health professional.
• Keep radio transmitting equipment or cellular phones
away from the blood pressure monitor to prevent
affecting its performance.
• Blood pressure measurements should be interpreted by
a doctor who is familiar with your medical history.
Supply the measurement records to your doctor. Do not
self diagnose. Ask your doctor any questions you have
about blood pressure.
