Notes for Accurate Measurement
Sit down in a comfortable position. Place the arm to be used for the measurement on a table or other support so
that the center of the cuff will be at the same height as your heart.
Relax for about five to ten minutes before taking a measurement. If you are excited or depressed by emotional
stress, the measurement will reflect this stress as a higher (or lower) than normal blood pressure reading and the
pulse reading will usually be faster than normal.
An individual's blood pressure varies constantly, depending on what you are doing and what you have eaten.
What you drink can have a very strong and rapid effect on your blood pressure.
This device bases its measurements on the heartbeat. If you have a very weak or irregular heartbeat, the device
may have difficulty determining your blood pressure.
Should the device detect a condition that is abnormal, it will stop the measurement and display an error symbol.
See page 5 for the description of symbols.
This blood pressure monitor is intended for use by adults only. Consult with your physician before using this
device on a child. A child should not use this device unattended.
Operation Mode
1. Normal measurement with storing data (Refer to page 9)
Press the START 1 (or START 2 ) button. Blood pressure is
measured and data is stored within the device. The device can
store the last thirty sets of data for each button. We recommend
that if two people regularly use the device, one uses the START 1
button and the other uses START 2 button.
2. Recalling data
Press and hold the START 1 (or START 2 ) button to recall the data.
Stored data are automatically displayed in order from the last data.

What is an Irregular Heartbeat?
Model UB-512 blood pressure monitor provides a blood pressure and pulse rate measurement even when an
irregular heartbeat occurs. An irregular heartbeat is defined as a heartbeat that varies by 25% from the average
of all heartbeats during the blood pressure measurement. It is important that you be relaxed, remain still and do
not talk during measurements.
Note: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this
indicator frequently.

About Blood Pressure
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries. Systolic pressure occurs when the
heart contracts. Diastolic pressure occurs when the heart expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of
mercury (mmHg). One's natural blood pressure is represented by the fundamental pressure, which is measured
first thing in the morning while one is still at rest and before eating.
What is Hypertension and How is it Controlled?
Hypertension, an abnormally high arterial blood pressure, if left unattended, can cause many health problems including
stroke and heart attack. Hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle, avoiding stress, and with medication under
a doctor’s supervision.
English 12
To prevent hypertension or keep it under control:
Do not smoke
Exercise regularly
Reduce salt and fat intake
Have regular physical checkups
Maintain proper weight
Why Measure Blood Pressure at Home?
WHO Blood Pressure Classification
Standards to assess high blood pressure, without regard to age,
have been established by the World Health Organization (WHO),
as shown in the chart on the right.
Diastolic blood pressure
Blood pressure measured at a clinic or doctor's office may cause
apprehension and can produce an elevated reading, 25 to 30 Reference Material: Journal of Hypertension 1999, Vol 17 No.2

Grade 2 hypertension (moderate)
readings, supplements the doctor's readings and provides a more
accurate, complete blood pressure history.
Grade 1 hypertension (mid)
High-normal
Normal
Optimal
Systolic blood pressure
An individual’s blood pressure varies greatly on a daily and seasonal basis. It may
vary by 30 to 50 mmHg due to various conditions during the day. In hypertensive
individuals, variations are even more pronounced. Normally, the blood pressure rises
while at work or play and falls to its lowest levels during sleep. So, do not be overly
concerned by the results of one measurement.
Take measurements at the same time every day using the procedure described
in this manual to get to know your normal blood pressure. Regular readings give
a more comprehensive blood pressure history. Be sure to note date and time
when recording your blood pressure. Consult your doctor to interpret your blood
pressure data.
