The level of blood-pressure is determined in a part ol the
brain, the so-called circulatory centre, and adapted to the
respective situation by way of feedback via the nervous
system. To adiust the blood-pressure, the strength and
f requency of the heari (Pulse), as well as the width of
circulatory blood vessels is altered. The latter is effected
by way of fine muscles in the blood-vessel walls.
The level of arterial blood-pressure changes periodically
during the heart activity: During the (( blood ejection )
(Systole) the value is maximal (systolic blood-pressure
value), at the end of the heart's ( rest period
minimal (diastolic blood-pressure value).
The blood-pressure values must lie within certain normal
ranges in order to prevent particular diseases'
1.2. Which values are normal?
Blood pressure is too high if at rest, the diastolic pressure
is above 90 mmHg and/or the systolic blood-pressure is
over 160 mmHg. ln this case, please consult your doctor
immediately. Long-term values at this level endanger your
health due to the associated advancing damage to the
blood vessels in your body.
Should the systolic blood-pressure values lie between
140 mmHg and 1 60 mmHg and/or the diastolic blood-pressure
values lie between 90 mmHg and 100 mmHg, likewise,
please consult your doctor. Furthermore, regular self-checks
will be necessary.
II*f' Further i nformation
lf your values are mostly standard under resting
conditionsbut exceptionally high under conditions of
physical or psychological stress, it is possible that you are
suffering f rom so-called < labile hypertension>>. Please
With blood-pressure values that are too low, i.e. systolic
values under 'l00 mmHg and/or diastolic values under
60 mmHg, likewise, please consult your doctor.
consult your doctor if you suspect that this might be the case.
Even with normal blood-pressure values, a regular self-check
with your blood-pressure monitor is recommended. ln this
way you can detect possible changes in yourvalues early and
react appropriately. lf you are undergoing medical treatment
to control your blood pressure, please keep a record of the
level of your blood pressure by carrying out regular
self-measurements at specific times of the day. Show these
values to your doctor.Never use the results of your

a) Please consult your doctor.
b) lncreased blood-pressure values (various forms of
hypertension) are associated long- and medium term
with considerable risks to health. This concerns the
arterial blood vessels of your body, which are endangered
due to constriction caused by deposits in the vessel walls
(Arteriosclerosis). A deficient supply of blood to important
organs (heart, brain, muscles) can be the result.
Furthermore, with long-term continuously increased
blood-pressure values, the heart will become structurally
c) There are many different causes of the appearance of
high blood pressure. We diflerentiate between the common
primary (essential) hypertension, and secondary
hypertension. The latter group can be ascribed to specific
organic malf unctions. Please consult your doctor f or
information about the possible origins of your own
increased blood pressure values.
. Correclly measured diastolic blood-pressure values
above 120mmHg require immediate medical treatment.

untilyou switch the device off . lf no button is pressed for
3 minutes, the device switches automatically off , to save
the batteries.
10. lf it is necessary to interrupl a blood pressure measurement
for any reason (e.9. the patient feels unwell), the 0/l button
can be pressed at any time. The device then immediately
lowers the cuff-pressure automatically.
5.Lay the arm on a table, with the palm upwards. Support
the arm a little with a rest (cushion), so that the cuff rests
at about the same height as the heart. Take care, that the
cuff lies lree. Remain so for 2 minutes sitting quietly,
before beginning with the measurement.
6.After the cuff has been appropriately positioned, the
measurement can begin. Press the 0/l-button, the pump
begins to inf late the cufl. ln the display, the increasing
cuff-pressure is continually displayed.
T.After reaching the inflation pressure, the pump stops and
the pressure slowly falls away. The cuff-pressure (large
characters) is displayed during the measurement.
B.When the device has detected the pulse, the heart symbol
in the display begins to blink and a beep tone is audible
for every pulse beat.
9.When the measurement has been concluded, a long
beep tone sounds. The measured systolic and diastolic
blood-pressure values as well as the pulse frequency
4.Memory - storage and recall of the
The blood-pressure monitor automatically stores each of the
last 120 measurement values. By pressing the MEMORY
button, the last measurement (MR1) as well as the further
last 120 measurements (MR2, MR3, ..., MR120) can be
displayed one afier the other, in the meantime the measured
date and time are displayed. (M R1 : Values of the last
measurement) (MR2-MR120: Values of the measurement
