IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Readings taken by the PhysioLogic essentiA are equivalent
to those obtained by a trained observer using the cuff and
stethoscope auscultation method. This manual contains
important safety and care information, and provides step by step
instruction for using the product. Read this manual thoroughly
before using the product.
Your physician's reading may sometimes differ from your home
readings. This could be related to a phenomenon known as
“white coat syndrome”. You should not assume that any
single reading taken is your usual blood pressure.
In fact, blood pressure varies constantly throughout the
day. Common activities affect your level of heart activity and
stress, thereby influencing your blood pressure.
Note: It is important that you take home readings regularly, and
that you follow the procedures and precautions mentioned in the
instruction manual. Consistently recording/charting your readings,
along with regularly consulting a health professional, is an
important aspect of your overall blood pressure management
program.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ATTENTION
• This Blood Pressure Monitor does not replace examination by a
physician.
As your doctor is the one person best qualified to interpret your
results, we recommend that you keep a blood pressure journal to
bring to your visits to your healthcare professional.
• This device is intended for adult use only.
• This device is intended for non-invasive measuring and monitoring
of arterial blood pressure. It is not intended for use on extremities
other than the arm or for functions other than obtaining a blood
pressure measurement.
• Do not confuse self-monitoring with self-diagnosis. This unit
allows you to monitor your blood pressure. Do not begin or end
medical treatment based solely on readings obtained from this
device. Always consult a physician before starting any treatment.
• If you are taking medication, consult your physician to determine
the most appropriate time to measure your blood pressure. Never
change a prescribed medication without consulting your physician.
ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
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.

• If the cuff pressure exceeds 37.24 kPa (280 mmHg), the unit will
automatically deflate. Should the cuff not deflate when pressure
exceeds 37.24 kPa (280 mmHg), detach the cuff from the arm and
press the (ON / OFF) button to stop inflation.
• To avoid measurement errors, carefully read this manual before
using the product.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
MEASUREMENT TIPS
What are systolic and diastolic pressure?
When ventricles contract and pump blood out of the heart,
blood pressure reaches its maximum value. The highest pressure
in the cycle is known as systolic pressure. When the heart
relaxes between heartbeats, the lowest blood pressure is
diastolic pressure.

Blood Pressure Fluctuation
Blood pressure fluctuates all the time! You should not be overly
worried if you encounter two or three measurements at high
levels. Blood pressure changes over the month and throughout
the day.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Here are a few helpful tips to help you obtain more accurate
readings:
• Blood pressure changes with every heartbeat and is in
constant fluctuation throughout the day.
• Blood pressure recording can be affected by the position
of the user, his or her physiological condition and other
factors. For greatest accuracy, wait one hour after
exercising, bathing, eating, drinking beverages with
alcohol or caffeine, or smoking to measure blood pressure.
• Before measurement, it’s suggested that you sit quietly for
15 minutes as measurement taken during a relaxed state
will have greater accuracy. You should not be physically
tired or exhausted while taking a measurement.
• Do not take measurements if you are under stress
or tension.
• During measurement, do not talk or move your arm or
hand muscles.
• Take your blood pressure at normal body temperature.
If you are feeling cold or hot, wait a while before taking a
measurement.
• If the monitor is stored at very low temperature (near
freezing), have it placed at a warm location for at least
one hour before using it.
• Wait about 5 minutes before taking the next
measurement.
