Thank you for purchasing the OMRON RS8 Wrist Blood Pressure
Monitor.
The OMRON RS8 is a compact and easy to use blood pressure
monitor, operating on the oscillometric principle. It measures your
blood pressure and pulse rate simply and quickly. For comfortable
controlled inflation without the need of pressure pre-setting or
re-inflation the device uses its advanced “IntelliSense” technology.

damage to the equipment or other property.
(General Usage)
• Do not leave the unit unattended with infants or persons who
cannot express their consent.
• Do not use the unit for any purpose other than measuring blood
pressure.
• Do not use a mobile phone or other devices that emit
electromagnetic fields, near the unit. This may result in incorrect
operation of the unit.
• Do not disassemble the unit or wrist cuff.
• Do not operate the unit in a moving vehicle (car, airplane).

• Do not take measurements after bathing, drinking alcohol or
caffeine, smoking, exercising or eating.
• Do not inflate the wrist cuff when it is not wrapped around your
wrist.
• Read and follow the “Important information regarding Electro
Magnetic Compatibility (EMC)” in the Technical Data Section.
• Read and follow the “Correct Disposal of This Product” in the
Technical Data Section when disposing of the device and any used

Notes:
• Wait 2 - 3 minutes before taking another
blood pressure measurement. Waiting
between readings allows the arteries to
return to the condition prior to taking the
blood pressure measurement.
• The blood pressure can differ between the right arm and the
left arm, and therefore also the measured blood pressure
values can be different. OMRON recommends to always use
the same arm for measurement. If the values between the
two arms differ substantially, please check with your
physician which arm to use for your measurement.

• Hold down to advance the digit rapidly.
Display:
Consult your doctor prior to using in pregnancy or if diagnosed with
arrhythmia or arteriosclerosis.
Please read this section carefully before using the unit.
• Relax your wrist and hand. Do not bend your wrist back, clench
your fist, or bend your wrist forward.
Notes:
• To cancel a measurement, press the START/STOP button at
any time during measurement.
• Remain still while taking a measurement.
2.2 Setting the Date and Time
B
(General Usage)
• Always consult your doctor. Self-diagnosis of measurement results
and self-treatment are dangerous.
• People with severe blood flow problems, or blood disorders, should
consult a doctor before using the unit, as cuff inflation can cause
internal bleeding.
• Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the
floor.
• Sit upright with your back straight.
• The cuff should be at the same level
as your heart.
• Your blood pressure monitor includes an
irregular heartbeat feature. Irregular
heartbeats can influence the results of the
measurement. The irregular heartbeat
algorithm automatically determines if the
measurement is usable or needs to be
repeated. If the measurement results are
affected by irregular heartbeats but the result
is valid, the result is shown together with the
irregular heartbeat symbol ( ).
If the irregular heartbeats cause the measurement to be
invalid, no result is shown. If the irregular heartbeat symbol
( ) is shown after you have taken a measurement, repeat
the measurement. If the irregular heartbeat symbol ( ) is
shown frequently, please make your doctor aware of it.

Your palm should face upward.
Note: This reading is NOT reliable due to the incorrect
wrapping of the cuff. Please wrap the cuff again, taking
care to wrap it correctly and take the measurement
again. When the
is displayed, the cuff is correctly
wrapped tightly enough on the wrist and the reading is
accurate and reliable.
2. Wrap the wrist cuff around
your wrist.
1
Wrap the wrist cuff securely
around the wrist for taking
accurate measurements.
The monitor automatically stores the result up to 100 sets for
each user (A and B).
It can also calculate an average reading based on the
measurements from the last three readings taken within 10
minutes. If there are only two readings in memory for that
period, the average will be based on two readings. If there is
one reading in memory for that period, the average will be
based on one reading.
To View the Average Value
1. Select your User ID.
2. Press the button.
Note: If there are no measurements
results stored in the memory, the
screen to the right is displayed.
3. Undo the wrist cuff and remove the unit.
4. Press the START/STOP button to turn off the monitor.
The monitor automatically stores the measurement in its memory.
It will automatically turn off after two minutes.
Important:

Make sure that the wrist cuff
does not cover the protruding
part of the wrist bone (ulna) on
the outside of the wrist.
• Recent research suggests that the
following values can be used as a
guide to high blood pressure for
measurements taken at home.
Systolic Blood Pressure
Above 135 mmHg
Diastolic Blood Pressure
Above 85 mmHg
This criteria is for home blood pressure measurement.
Notes:
• You can take a measurement on
either your left or right wrist.
• If the wrist cuff comes off,
assemble as shown in the figure.

Important information regarding Electro Magnetic
Compatibility (EMC)
With the increased number of electronic devices such as PC’s and
mobile (cellular) telephones, medical devices in use may be
susceptible to electromagnetic interference from other devices.
Electromagnetic interference may result in incorrect operation of
the medical device and create a potentially unsafe situation.
Medical devices should also not interfere with other devices.
In order to regulate the requirements for EMC (Electro Magnetic
Compatibility) with the aim to prevent unsafe product situations, the
EN60601-1-2:2007 standard has been implemented. This standard
defines the levels of immunity to electromagnetic interferences as
well as maximum levels of electromagnetic emissions for medical
devices.
This medical device manufactured by OMRON HEALTHCARE
conforms to this EN60601-1-2:2007 standard for both immunity and
emissions.
Nevertheless, special precautions need to be observed:
• Do not use mobile (cellular) telephones and other devices, which
generate strong electrical or electromagnetic fields, near the
medical device. This may result in incorrect operation of the unit
and create a potentially unsafe situation. Recommendation is to
keep a minimum distance of 7 m. Verify correct operation of the
device in case the distance is shorter.
Further documentation in accordance with EN60601-1-2:2007 is
available at OMRON HEALTHCARE EUROPE at the address
mentioned in this instruction manual.
