IMPORTANT INFORMATION
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 one 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.
Statement of Accuracy
Blood pressure measurements obtained with this
unit are equivalent to those obtained by a trained
person using the cuff/stethoscope auscultation
method, within the limits prescribed by the
American National Standard, Electronic or
automated sphygmomanometers.
About 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.
Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by the
blood at right angles to the walls of the blood
vessels, while blood flows through the arteries.
The pressure measured when the heart contracts
and sends blood out of the heart is called
systolic; it is the peak pressure in the arteries
during the cardiac cycle. The pressure measured
when the heart dilates with blood flowing back
into the heart is called diastolic; it is the lowest
pressure at the resting phase of the cardiac cycle.
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.
High blood pressure’s strong correlation with
cardiovascular diseases and high morbidity has
made measuring blood pressure a necessity of
identifying those at risk.
Fuzzy Logic Technology
This Physio Logic® monitor uses the oscillometric
method to detect your blood pressure. Before the
cuff starts inflating, the device will establish a
baseline cuff pressure equivalent to the air
pressure. Your Physio Logic® monitor will
determine the appropriate inflation level based
on one's pressure oscillations, followed by cuff
deflation. During the deflation, the device will
detect the amplitude and slope of the pressure
oscillations and thereby determine the systolic,
diastolic, and pulse for you.

Blood Pressure Standard
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the
National High Blood Pressure Education
Program Coordinating Committee have
developed a blood pressure standard, in 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.

Blood Pressure Standard
Before taking a measurement
Blood Pressure for Adults Age 18 and Older
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 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. It is also influenced by season and
temperature.

Troubleshooting
Cautionary Notes
1. Avoid extreme temperatures, humidity, and
direct sunlight. Avoid strongly shocking the
unit, and protect it from dust.
2. Clean the blood pressure monitor body and
the cuff carefully with a slightly damp, soft
cloth. Do not press. Do not wash the cuff or
use thinner, benzene or other harsh cleaners.
3. Do not drop the blood pressure monitor. It is
not shock-proof.
4. Do not twist the arm cuff.
5. Do not press the Start key when the cuff is
not properly wrapped around your arm.
6. Remove the batteries when the unit is not
used for a long time.
7. The unit should not be operated by children.
Symptom: No display when the START/STOP
button is pressed.
8. Do not disassemble the main unit or cuff.
Correction: If the batteries have run down,
replace them with new alkaline batteries. If the
batteries are not in the correct position, re-insert
them with the correct polarities.
9. This device might not be suitable for use by
people with poor blood circulation, common
arrhythmias, such as atrial or ventricular
premature beats or atrial fibrillation. It is not
designed for ambulatory use.
Symptom: Error message shown on display
or the blood pressure value displayed is
excessively low (high).
10.To stop operation at any time, press
the START/STOP key and the cuff will
deflate.
Correction: Wrap the cuff properly so that it is
positioned correctly. If you talked or moved
during the measurement, measure it again quietly.
Always wait at least 5 minutes before taking
another measurement.
11.Pull off the velcro strap to detach the arm
cuff if the pressure is over 300mmHg and
the cuff does not deflate automatically.
Note: If the unit does not work, please call our
consumer information line at 1-800-363-2381.
