HOW UB-328 WORKS
LifeSource® blood pressure monitors are easy to use, accurate and digitally display
full measurement readouts. Our technology is based on the "oscillometric
method" – a noninvasive blood pressure determination. The term "oscillation"
refers to any measure of vibrations caused by the arterial pulse. Our monitor
examines the pulsatile pressure generated by the arterial wall as it expands and
contracts against the cuff with each heartbeat.
The cuff is inflated until the artery is fully blocked. The inflation speed is
maximized and the pressure level is optimized by the device. The monitor takes
measurements while the cuff is both inflating and deflating. This results in a faster
measurement providing greater comfort to the user.
BEFORE YOU START
The UB-328 provides accurate readings on wrists with a circumference between
5.3 and 7.7" (13.5 and 19.5 cm).
The unit requires two "AAA" (1.5 volt) batteries to operate (alkaline batteries
recommended). To install batteries (or to replace when "Low Battery" symbol
appears), proceed as follows:
1. Slide the battery cover as shown to remove
from the device
2. Insert batteries into designated areas ensuring
a correct match with positive (+) and negative
(-) terminals.
3. Return battery cover by sliding back on to
monitoring device.
NOTE: Rechargeable batteries will not work
with this monitor.

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Tips for Blood Pressure Monitoring:
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
☞
Relax for about 5 minutes before measurement.
Do not smoke or ingest caffeine at least 30 minutes prior to
measurement.
Remove constricting clothing and place cuff on bare wrist.
Unless your physician recommends otherwise, use left wrist
to measure pressure.
Do not talk during measurement.
Do not cross legs and keep you feet flat on floor during measurement.
Now you are ready. Follow these simple steps:
1. Sit comfortably in a chair near a flat surface.
2. With palm facing upward, attach monitor to left wrist
and fasten securely. The top edge of the cuff should
align with the crease of your wrist.
3. Position your wrist so it is level with your heart, using
an arm rest if needed. Positioning of the wrist at heart
level is critical for accurate measurement.
NOTE: To stop inflation at any time, press START
4. Press START button. All symbols will briefly appear,

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
6. After the cuff is fully inflated, it will automatically start to deflate and ❤
symbol will appear to indicate that measurement is in progress. Once the
pulse is detected, the symbol will flash with each pulse beat.
7. When measurement is complete, the systolic and
diastolic pressure and pulse rate readings are
displayed. The cuff will automatically deflate
completely, expelling all remaining air.
8. Press START button once to turn off power. The
device has an automatic power-down feature which
turns off power automatically one minute after
measurement is obtained.

9. Remove monitor and make a note of your blood pressure and pulse rate on
the chart in the back of the manual, indicating date and time of measurement.
Additional logbook charts can be downloaded and printed for free at
www.LifeSourceOnline.com or in Canada, www.autocontrol.com.
We advise that you record the date and time after each measurement because an
accurate blood pressure history relies not on single or sporadic readings but on a
pattern over time.
NOTE: Allow at least 5 minutes between measurements on the same
person.
NOTE: If you have poor blood circulation in winter (especially when your
hands and wrists are cold), you may not get a blood pressure measurement.

WHAT IS AN IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT
The UB-328 Blood Pressure Monitor provides a blood pressure and pulse rate
measurement even when an irregular heartbeat occurs. The Irregular Heartbeat
symbol
will appear in the display window in the event an Irregular
Heartbeat has occured during measurement. An irregular heartbeat is defined as a
heartbeat that varies by 25% from the average of all heartbeat intervals during the
blood pressure measurement. It is important that you relax, remain still and
refrain from talking during measurements.
NOTE: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this
symbol frequently.
ABOUT AVERAGE READING
The UB-328 provides an average blood pressure reading based
on the total measurements stored in memory. Press and release
the Memory button to see the average blood pressure reading.
Average pulse rate readings are not provided by this monitor. The
average blood pressure reading will appear and the number of
measurements stored in memory appear for approximately five
seconds.

ABOUT MEMORY
The UB-328 automatically stores up to 30 blood pressure and pulse
measurements in its memory. Measurements stored in memory are assigned an
index number in the order of the newest to the oldest. The oldest reading displays
as "n01". The M symbol in lower left corner of the display screen indicates that
you are viewing a previous measurement stored in memory.
To retrieve readings, follow these simple steps:
1. When the display screen is blank, press and release the
Memory button. You will see the average blood pressure
reading displayed. Press and release the Memory button
again. You will see the index number of the most recent
reading followed by the measurement.
2. If you want to retrieve other measurements in memory,
press and release the Memory button repeatedly until the
desired index number is reached (e.g. n03). The
measurement will then be displayed.
3. The display will shut off automatically a few seconds after
the readings are displayed.
To clear the measurement history from memory, remove the
batteries from the unit and then place the batteries back into the
battery holder.
NOTE: If there are no measurements stored in memory,
you will see 0s displayed vertically followed by a blinking "A00".
NOTE: Stored measurements will be lost if batteries become low or are
removed.

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).
What Affects Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is affected by many factors: age, weight, time of day, activity level,
climate, altitude and season. Certain activities can significantly alter one’s blood
pressure. Walking can raise systolic pressure by 12 mmHg and diastolic pressure
by 5.5 mmHg. Sleeping can decrease systolic blood pressure by as much as 10
mmHg. Taking your blood pressure repeatedly without waiting an interval of 5
minutes between readings, or without raising your arm to allow blood to flow
back to the heart, can also affect it.
In addition to these factors, beverages containing caffeine or alcohol, certain
medications, emotional stress and even tight-fitting clothes can make a difference
in the readings.
What Causes Variations In Blood Pressure?
An individual’s blood pressure varies greatly from day to day and season to season.
For hypersensitive individuals, these variations are even more pronounced.
Normally, blood pressure rises during work or play and falls to its lowest levels
during sleep.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
What Is Hypertension?
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is the diagnosis given when readings consistently rise above normal. It is well known that hypertension can lead to stroke,
heart attack or other illness if left untreated. Referred to as a “silent killer” because
it does not always produce symptoms that alert you to the problem, hypertension
is treatable when diagnosed early.
Can Hypertension Be Controlled?
In many individuals, hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle and
minimizing stress, and by appropriate medication prescribed and monitored by
your doctor. The American Heart Association recommends the following lifestyle
suggestions to prevent or control hypertension:
Don’t smoke.
Reduce salt and fat intake.
Maintain proper weight.
Exercise routinely.
Have regular
physical checkups.
Monitor your blood
pressure at periodic
intervals.
Why Measure Blood Pressure at Home?
It is now well known that, for many individuals, blood pressure readings taken in
a doctor’s office or hospital setting might be elevated as a result of apprehension
and anxiety. This response is commonly called “white coat hypertension.”
In any case, self-measurement at home supplements your doctor’s readings and
provides a more accurate, complete blood pressure history. In addition, clinical
studies have shown that the detection and treatment of hypertension is improved
when patients both consult their physicians and monitor their own blood pressure
at home.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Answers to Why Your Readings are Different
Between Home and at the Doctor’s Office
Why are my readings different between home and at a doctor’s office?
Your blood pressure readings taken in a doctor’s office or hospital setting may be
elevated as a result of apprehension and anxiety. This response is known as white
coat hypertension.
When I bring my monitor to a doctor’s office, why do I get a different
measurement from my monitor to that taken by a doctor or nurse?
The healthcare professional may be using a different sized cuff. The size of the
bladder inside the cuff is critical for the accuracy of the measurement. This may
give you a different reading. A cuff too large will produce a reading that is lower
than the correct blood pressure; a cuff that is too small will produce a reading that
is higher than the correct blood pressure. There may also be other factors that can
cause the difference in measurements.
Keys to Successful Monitoring:
Blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day. We recommend that you are
consistent in your daily measurement routine:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
E-12
Measure at the same time every day.
Sit in the same chair/position.
Do not cross legs and keep your feet flat on the floor.
Relax for 5 minutes before measurement.
Use the correct cuff size to get an accurate reading.
Sit still during measurement – no talking, eating or sudden movements.
Record your measurement in a logbook.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Establishing Baseline Measurements
The most important method to get an accurate blood pressure measurement is
consistency. To get the most benefit out of your monitor, it is important to
establish a “baseline measurement.” This helps build a foundation of
measurements that you can use to compare against future readings. To build this
baseline measurement, devote two weeks for consistent blood pressure
monitoring. This involves doing everything the same way when you measure (e.g.
measuring during the same time of day, in the same location, sitting in the same
chair, using the same cuff, etc.). Once you establish your baseline measurement,
you can start evaluating if your measurement has been affected based on things
lifestyle changes or medication treatment.
How Do I Record My Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure readings are typically recorded with the systolic pressure written
first, followed by a slash mark and the diastolic pressure. For example, 120
mmHg systolic and 80 mmHg diastolic measurements are written as 120/80.
Pulse is simply written with the letter “P” followed by the pulse rate—P 72, for
example. Please see the back of the manual for the blood pressure tracking record.
