HOW UA-704 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
You must install 1 type AA (1.5 volt) battery and attach
the cuff to the monitor before using it. To install battery
(or replace it if the “Low Battery” symbol appears on
display), proceed as follows:
1.Remove battery cover by gently pushing down on
handle and pulling cover off monitor.
2.Place the battery in compartment

with positive (+) and negative (–)
terminals matching those indicated
in the compartment. Be sure battery

makes contact with compartment
BATTERY
terminals.
3.Replace cover by sliding it into the
compartment and gently pressing
into place.
SELECTING THE CORRECT CUFF
Using the correct cuff size is important for an accurate
reading. A cuff that is too large will produce a reading that is
lower than the correct blood pressure; a cuff that is too small
yields a measurement that is higher. With your arm hanging at
the side of your body, measure the circumference of your
upper arm at the midpoint between shoulder and elbow.

Our cuff has an indicator which tells you whether you are
using the correct cuff size or not. Place the cuff on your arm
(see Page E-6 to learn how to put the cuff on correctly) and if
the Index Mark ▲ points within the Proper Fit Range, you are
using the correct cuff size. If the Index points outside of the
Proper Fit Range, contact A&D Medical at 1-888-726-9966
(in Canada - 1-800-463-5414) for a cuff replacement at an
additional cost.

Now you are ready. Follow these simple steps:
1. Sit comfortably with your left arm
resting on a flat surface so that the
center of your upper arm is at the
same height as your heart.
2. Lay left arm on the table, palm up
and thread cuff end through metal
loop, smooth side against arm.
Then position the tube off-center
toward the inner side of arm in
line with the little finger.
3. Pull the end of the cuff to tighten
it, fold back the extra material,
and fasten securely. The cuff
should be snug but not too tight.
You should be able to insert two
fingers between the cuff and
your arm.

6. If the
mark is displayed, the cuff has some air trapped
in it. Press the exhaust valve button until the
mark is
displayed. You may have to press on the cuff while holding
the exhaust valve to release all the air in the cuff.
7. When
mark is displayed, begin cuff inflation by
squeezing the inflator bulb repeatedly.
8. Stop squeezing the inflator bulb when
mark disappears
or until cuff pressure reaches about 30 mmHg to 40 mmHg
above expected systolic pressure. If inflating to a level
above your expected systolic pressure, we recommend
using the chart shown below to determine your inflation
level.

WHAT IS AN IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT?
The UA-704 Blood Pressure Monitor provides a blood
pressure and pulse rate measurement even when an irregular
heartbeat occurs. 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 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 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 at least 3 minutes
between readings 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. In hypersensitive individuals, these
variations are even more pronounced. Normally, blood
pressure rises during work or play and falls to its lowest
levels during sleep.

Prevention, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure. National
Heart, Lung and Blood Institute - May 2003.
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. Those who fall within the Prehypertensive range are
more likely to develop hypertension in the future.
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.

pressure at periodic
intervals.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE

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.” One way to determine whether this is the
case for you is to take your home monitor to the doctor’s
office and, before the doctor or nurse takes your pressure,
do it yourself on your home monitor and compare it to your
record of home readings.
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.
Keys to Successful Monitoring:
Blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day. We
recommend that you are consistent in your daily
measurement routine:
• Measure at the same time every day.
• Sit in the same chair/position.
• Relax for 5 minutes before measurement.
• Sit still during measurement – no talking, eating or
sudden movements.
• Record your measurement in a logbook.
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 Page E-13 for the
blood pressure record.
