Wrist Cuff Blood
Pressure Monitor
Step Four
63-1515
1. Press START/STOP. All display segments
appear briefly, the systolic rate rests to 00,
and  appears. The pressure cuff
automatically inflates to 195 mmHg or the
sufficient pressure level for measurement.
The systolic rate varies, and ♥ flashes at
the same rate as your heartbeat.
Measuring Blood Pressure
Step One
Install Batteries
1. Remove the battery compartment cover.
2. Insert two AAA batteries as indicated by
the polarity symbols. For easy removal,
place the ribbon under both batteries.
2. Once the monitor detects your blood
pressure reading, the pressure cuff deflates
slowly. Your blood pressure reading and
pulse rate appear.
3. To stop measurement, press START/STOP.
Step Three
Attaching the Pressure Cuff
3. Replace the cover.
When the display dims or batteries weaken,
Áappears on the display. Replace the batteries.
Step Two
Setting the Date and Time
1. With your palm face up, wrap the pressure cuff snugly around
your wrist, leaving about 3/16 inches to 13/32 inches (0.5 to 1 cm)
clearance between the wrist and the cuff.
2. Place your elbow on the table and wrist against the armrest or
the storage case so the pressure cuff is at the same height as
your heart.
à appears for about five seconds when:
•
The pressure cuff is not wrapped around your wrist
correctly.
•
You move or talk during measurement.
•
You do not have correct posture.
Step Five
Recalling Stored Readings
1. Press MODE. The month digit flashes.
1. Press RECALL. The last reading with the
date and time appears.
2. Repeatedly press (or hold down) SET to set
the correct month.
2. Repeatedly press (or hold down) RECALL
to view other stored readings (up to 48).
3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 to set the date, hour,
and minute. Press MODE when finished.
3. To view current date and time, repeatedly
press or hold down RECALL until the current
date and time appear.

What Is Blood Pressure?
•
Blood pressure is the power 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 doctor 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 before
having any food. Ô

Why Monitor Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure varies based on many conditions and
factors, so judgment cannot be made by just one
measurement. Monitoring blood pressure at home provides
you an important and convenient way of managing your
health. Keeping track of your blood pressure also helps your
doctor diagnose and offer the right medication for you.
What Is Normal Blood Pressure?
•
within 130/85 mmHg
High
over 130/85 mmHg but
below 139/89 mmHg
Hypertension
over 139/89 mmHg
•
Variations in Blood Pressure
Blood pressure varies by many factors, such as physical
condition, weight, anxiety, season, and the time of day. It is
generally lower in the morning, and increases from afternoon
to the 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, medications,
and physical activity. !

Notes
Specifications
•
While setting the date and time, if you do not press any key
within one minute, the current time is saved and the clock
automatically turns off.
•
The clock uses the 12-hour time format. P appears for PM.
•
Remove bracelets or watches before taking a measurement.
•
Do not wrap the pressure cuff over your jacket or sleeve.
•
Do not use the blood pressure monitor if your wrist is injured.
•
If the cuff fails to stop inflating, unwrap the cuff. Re-fasten it to
take the measurement.

Hints
Ô NOTE Ô
•
This monitor complies with
EMC requirements
according to IEC60601-1-2.
Take your blood pressure at the same time under the same
conditions every day.
•
Sit comfortably with your legs uncrossed and feet flat on the
floor, with your back supported.
•
Relax and rest for 10 minutes before measuring.
•
Do not talk, move, or vibrate the monitor during measurement.
•
Blood pressure varies in both arms. For an accurate reading,
use the same arm. If possible, we suggest using the left arm.
To take multiple measurements right after each other, wait at
least three minutes for each measurement.

Ô BATTERY NOTES Ô
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 monitor for a month or
more, remove the
batteries. Batteries can
leak chemicals that can
damage electronic parts.
The blood pressure
readings measured from
this monitor are
equivalent to those
measured from the cuff/
stethoscope auscultation
method 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. Do not self
diagnose. Ask your
doctor if you have any
questions about blood
pressure or the blood
pressure monitor.
Care
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.
Service and Repair
If your blood pressure monitor is not performing as it should, take it
to your local RadioShack store for assistance. To locate your nearest RadioShack, use the store locator feature on RadioShack's
website (www.radioshack.com), or call 1-800-The Shack (8437422) and follow the menu options. Modifying or tampering with
the blood pressure monitor's internal components can cause a
malfunction and might invalidate its warranty.
