Smart Inflate™ Measuring Technology
This Physio Logic™ monitor uses trend-setting Smart Inflate™
Technology to detect your blood pressure. With one touch of a
button, it will automatically start to inflate and determine your
blood pressure by analysing your pressure oscillations while
inflating. When the measurement is completed, the device will
automatically deflate the cuff and display your systolic, diastolic,
and pulse. Measurement time is significantly shortened and user
comfort is greatly enhanced.
Statement of Accuracy
Blood pressure measurements determined with Physio Logic™
are equivalent to those obtained by a trained observer using cuff /
stethoscope auscultation method, within the limits prescribed by
the American National Standard for Electronic or Automated
Sphygmomanometers (ANSI / AAMI).
About Blood Pressure
Blood pressure is the pressure exerted on the arterial wall while
blood flows through the arteries. The pressure measured when the
heart contracts and sends blood out of the heart is systolic
(highest). The pressure measured when the heart dilates with blood
flowing back into the heart is called diastolic (lowest) blood
pressure.
High blood pressure’s strong correlation with cardiovascular
diseases and high morbidity has made measuring blood pressure a
necessity of identifying those at risk.
3
Blood Pressure Standard
The Joint National Committee on prevention, detection, evaluation, and treatment of high blood pressure has developed a blood
pressure standard, according to which areas of low and high risk
blood pressure are identified. This standard is a guideline as blood
pressure varies among different people and different age groups...
It is important that you consult with your physician regularly.
Your physician will tell you your normal blood pressure range as
well as the point at which you will be considered at risk.

Before Taking a Measurement
To help you obtain more accurate readings:
• Urinate if necessary.
• Remove any clothing and jewellery from your left arm. Placing
the cuff on anything other than bare skin can result in an
inaccurate reading.
• Sit in a comfortable position with your legs and ankles
uncrossed and your back supported.
• Sit quietly for 15 minutes before measuring your blood pressure.
• If you need to retake a reading, wait at least 5 minutes to allow
your circulation to return to normal.
• Pick a time of day, and take your blood pressure at about the
same time every day. Since your blood pressure varies at
different times of the day, this will make it easier for you to
compare your daily blood pressure readings. A good time to take
your blood pressure is in the morning, before breakfast.
• Don't smoke, eat or exercise for 30 minutes before taking your
blood pressure. These activities can change your blood pressure.
• Do not measure your blood pressure immediately after
consuming a large meal. To obtain more accurate readings,
please wait one hour before measuring.
• Only take your blood pressure in a quiet place and when you are
relaxed. Don't take your blood pressure when you are under
stress. Any stress will raise your blood pressure.
• Position your arm so that the cuff is at the level of your heart.
• If the monitor is stored at very low temperature (near freezing),
place it in a warm location for at least one hour before using it.

Blood Pressure Classification Risk Indicator
The World Health Organization (WHO) and National High
Blood Pressure Education Program Coordinating Committee
have developed a blood pressure standard, classifying blood
pressure ranges into 4 stages.
This unit is equipped with a blood pressure classification
indicator, which promptly indicates the risk level (prehypertension
/ stage 1 hypertension / stage 2 hypertension) of the result after
each measurement on the LCD display.
Prehypertension
Sys. 120-139
Dia. 80-89
Stage 1
hypertension
Sys. 140-159
Dia. 90-99
Stage 2
hypertension
