this
unit
please
read
these
instructions completely.
D o Read instructions carefully before
using
Monitor
2. Do Rest arm on a flat surface so that upper arm is at heart level when
taking measurements.
3. Do Remain calm, quiet and still when measurements are being taken.
4. DO make sure that the cuff is in the proper position according to your
instruction manual.
5. DO Insure that the exhaust velocity is 2-5 mmHg per second at the systolic
point each time a measurement is taken.
6. DO Wait at least 10 minutes between taking measurements.
7. DO Pump unit pressure 30 to 60 mmHg above normal systolic before
beginning measurement.
8. DO Consult your physician before adjusting your medication based on
readings from this Monitor.
9. DO Use fresh alkaline batteries.
IO. DO Use a dry, soft cloth to clean the instrument.
DO NOT move arms or hands when measurement is being taken.
2. DO NOT talk or chew when measurement is being taken.
3. DO NOT take a series of measurements without waiting at least 10 minutes
between measurements.
4. DO NOT adjust medication based on readings from this Monitor.
5. DO NOT make any adjustments to unit, there are no user serviceable parts.
Call l-800-597-5978 for further instructions.
6. DO NOT smoke during or at least 30 minutes prior to taking blood pressure
measurements.
7. DO NOT drop or otherwise mechanically shock the Monitor. This is a delicate

W h a t is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force of blood flowing against the walls of the
arteries. Arterial blood pressure is constantly changing during the course of the cardiac
cycle. The highest pressure in the cycle is called the SYSTOLIC BLOOD PRESSURE;
the lowest is the DIASTOLIC BLOOD PRESSURE. Both pressure readings, the SYSTOLIC and DIASTOLIC, are necessary to enable a physician to evaluate the status of a
patient’s blood pressure. Many factors such as physical activity, anxiety, or the time of day,
can influence your blood pressure. Blood pressure is typically low in the morning and
increases from afternoon to evening. It is lower in the summer and higher in the winter.
Why Is It a Good Thing to Measure Blood Pressure at Home?
Having one’s blood pressure measured by a doctor in a hospital or a clinic, and group
health checks, tend to stimulate nervousness in the subject and may even create high blood
pressure. Also blood pressure varies in accordance with a variety of conditions,, and so
judgement is not possible on the basis of a single measurement. (See Fig. 2)
The blood pressure measured first thing in the morning after getting up, before taking any
food, and with the subject still, is known as the fundamental blood pressure. In practice it
is rather difficult to record the fundamental blood pressure, but to come as near as possible
to measuring. the blood pressure in aan environment that is close to this, is why it is useful
. .
to take the measurement at home.
.’
:
Systolic: The highest point of blood pressure; level of blood pressure produced
as your heart beats.
Diastolic: The lowest point of blood pressure; level of blood pressure produced
as your heart rests between beats.
Millimeters of %l~ercury (mmHg): Blood pressure is measured in terms of the
height of mercury in a column. Measurements are written one over the other.
For example, a systolic presssure of 120 mmHg and diastolic pressure of 80
mmHg is expressed as “120 over 80.”
IMPORTANT: Only a physician is qualified to interpret your blood pressure
measurements, and no device can replace regular medical examinations by
your physician. It is recommended that your physician raview your procedure
for using this blood pressure monitor. Your physician should verify blood
pressure measurements before making adjustments to medication.
Standards for assessment of high or low blood pressur.$ without regard to age,
have been established by the World Health Orga’nization (WHO), as shown in this
chart.

and Social Security, 1971.
Individual blood pressures vary greatly both on a daily and a seasonal basis.
These variations are even more pronounced in hypertense patients. Normally the
blood pressure rises while at work and is at its lowest during the sleeping
period. The graph below illustrates the variations in blood pressure over a whole
day with measurement taken every five minutes.

1.1 Battery Installation
Remove the battery cover and insert oatteries into the battery compartment as shown, taking
extreme tare that the polarities + and - are observed. (Fig. 3)
(Fig. 3)
2. Attaching the Arm Cuff
Wind the arm cuff around the left Upper arm tightly (for best results) SO that the bottom
edge of the cuff is positioned one inch above the elbow joint.
(Fig. 4)
*Do not roll up a shirt or jacket.
It may cause constriction of the Upper
arm and proper measurement results
Will not be obtained. (Fig. 5)
3. Measuring Posture
Remain in a seated or reclining position.
Do not move your arm while measuring.

2. Attach the arm cuff to the left arm for best results.
3. Pressurize the arm cuff with the inflation bulb.
Pressurize the arm cuff to approximately 30-40 mmHg above the estimated systolic blood
pressure to be measured.

4. When Pressurization is Completed, the automatic exhaust mechanism will
gradually reduce arm cuff pressure, and the “v “ mark will appear indicating that
measurement is in progress.
1) Pressure value appears on the !eft, and exhaust speed on the right side of the display.
*Remain still during measurement.
2) When a pulse is detected, the pressure value moves to the right side of the display. At
this time the “ v” mark flashes at the same rate as pulse rate, and the buzzer
sounds when the pulsation is sufficient.

3) When the measurement is completed and buzzer sounds (beep), Systolic pressure is
displayed on the left and Diastolic pressure on the right side of the display.
2-3 seconds later, pressure value and pulse appear alternately on the display.
*When a measurement is made with insufficient pressure the “Err” mark appears. Pressurize to a
valve 30-40 mmHg higher than that previously used and perform the measurement again.
5. Push the air release valve to completely release the air from within the cuff.
6. Turn Power OFF
Press the Power switch to turn power OFF. (See Diagram A)
7. Previous Measurement Display
When the Memory switch is pressed, the previous measurement value is shown for
about 5 seconds.
8. Automatic Power OFF Function
If this unit is left on after measurement an Automatic Power-OFF function turns the
power OFF after approximately 2 min. 30 seconds. To continue measurement press
the power switch turning the unit ON.
