About Blood Pressure
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the pressure exerted on the artery tube
while blood flows through the arteries. The pressure measured
when the heart contracts and sends blood out of the heart is
systolic (highest) blood pressure. The pressure measured
when the heart dilates with blood flowing back into the heart
is called diastolic (lowest) blood pressure.
Why Measure Your Blood Pressure?
Among the various health problems afflicting people today,
problems associated with high blood pressure are by far the
most common. High blood pressure's dangerously strong
correlation with cardiovascular disease has made measuring
blood pressure a necessity for identifying those at risk.
The pumping pressure is higher than
300 mmHg.
Solution: Please measure again.
Low battery.
Solution: Check and replace the
batteries if necessary.

About Blood Pressure
Blood Pressure Standard
The World Health Organization (WHO) and National
High Blood Pressure Education Program Coordinating
Committee have developed a blood pressure standard,
according to which areas of low- and high-risk blood pressure
are identified. This standard, however, is a general guideline
and blood pressures vary between different people, age
groups, etc.
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.
Do not drop the unit. It’s not shock proof.
Do not modify or disassemble the unit or the
arm cuff.
Use a cloth moistened with water or neutral
detergent to clean the body of the unit. Then
wipe it dry.
Grade 3 Hypertension (Severe)
Avoid thinner, benzene and other harsh
cleaners.

Correct Measuring Posture
Measurement Procedures
A. Place your elbow on a table so
that the cuff is at the same level
as your heart. (Fig. A.)
C. Quick Read Technology detects your blood pressure
with the touch of a button, which reduces measurement
time significantly and decreases patient discomfort.
Note: The level of your heart is
slightly below your armpit.
Fig. A
Relax your entire body, especially
the area between your elbow and fingers.
B. If the cuff is not at the same level
as your heart or if you can not
keep your arm completely still
throughout the reading, use a
soft object such as a folded towel
to support your arm. (Fig. B) Do
not allow hard objects to come in
contact with the wrist cuff.
Inflating
Measuring
Note: It is important to
remain still and quiet
during measurement. Any
significant movement may
affect measurement results.
Results

Measurement Procedures
Applying the Cuff
To start the measurement
To apply the cuff
Note: In order to get your correct measurement result and,
to avoid erroneous measurements, you should be seated
quietly. Your arm, hand, and fingers should be still during the
measurement procedure.
A. Remove all watches, jewelry,
etc. prior to attaching the wrist
monitor. Clothing sleeves
should be rolled up and
the cuff should be wrapped
on bare skin for correct
measurements.
A. Press the “START/STOP” button. The display will initially
show a flashing “0”.
Flashing “0”
Start / Stop
B. Apply cuff to left wrist with
palm facing up as Fig. A.
Fig. A
Initial Display
B. After the “0” stops blinking, the unit will automatically
inflate to the appropriate inflation level based on the
user's pulse oscillations. Measurement will then begin.
C. Make sure the edge of the
cuff is about 1 cm (1/2 an
inch) from the palm as Fig. B.
D. In order to insure accurate
measurements, fasten
the velcro strap securely
around your wrist so there
is no extra space between
the cuff and the wrist.
Fig. B
Note: If the cuff is not wrapped tight enough, the measurement
values will be inaccurate.

Applying the Cuff
Helpful Tips
E. If it is not possible to
measure on the left wrist,
attach the cuff on the right
wrist as shown in Fig. C
Here are a few helpful tips to help you obtain a more accurate reading.
A. Do not measure your blood pressure immediately after
consuming a large meal. To obtain more accurate
readings, please wait one hour before measuring.
B. Do not smoke or drink alcohol before measuring your
blood pressure.
Fig. C
C. You should not be physically tired or exhausted while
taking a measurement.
D. It is important that you relax during measurement. Take
a 15-minute rest before a reading.
E. Do not take measurements if you are under stress or
feeling tense.
F. Take your blood pressure at normal body temperature. If
you are feeling cold or hot, wait a while before taking a
measurement.
G. 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.
H. Wait about 5 minutes before taking the next pressure
measurement.
