Smart measurement
❏
The measurement time is shortened by proper exhaust velocity control.
❏
The exhaust velocity adjustment is unnecessary, because the constant
exhaust is properly controlled.
❏
In the automatic measurement cycle, these inflation values and stop values
at exhaust are controlled to reduce the measurement time.
Functions and Specifications
Blood pressure measurement

with internal clock, preset time intervals and preset
mode. The measurement data is saved in memory.
Manual measurement ----- Any time you press the START STOP key, a blood
pressure measurement is performed immediately.
The measurement data is saved in the memory.
Features
Page 8
Specifications
Automatic measurement
❏
This measurement starts or stops using the AUTO ON/OFF key. When this
measurement is started, the recorder begins to work in accordance with
preset time intervals from the preset time of the internal clock. Refer to
"Selection for the automatic measurement".
❏
In the automatic measurement, an "A" appears in the upper left of the display.
❏
The recorder automatically measures the patient's blood pressure at the time that is
pointed out by "the frequency" and "the start time" (by the programed time intervals).
❏
When a measurement error occurs and there is 10 minutes until the next
measurement, the measurement is retried after approx. 30 seconds.
❏
If a measurement is retried, only the data from the retry is saved.
❏
The recorder automatically adjusts the proper pressure, exhaust velocity and
end of measurement.
❏
Refer to "Selection for the automatic measurement" and "Automatic measurement by programed time intervals" about operation and entering parameters.
Stopping a measurement
❏
If you press the START STOP key during a measurement, the recorder exhausts
the air and stops the measurement.
Concealing the measurement value
❏
This function works only while using automatic measurement.
❏
This function does not display the SYS, DIA or pulse rate for the automatic
measurement, but the data is saved in memory.
❏
This function can select "reveal" or "conceal" at "Parameters for the display
and clock". Refer to this section.
❏
If you select "conceal", the recorder displays the clock during a measurement.
❏
If you reset the recorder, this parameter is set to "reveal".
Pressurization
❏
The pressure is automatically selected by the recorder while in the automatic
measurement mode.
❏
The first pressure is set to approx. 185 mmHg. This value automatically
adjusts to the proper value after the first measurement. If the first inflation is
not successful, the recorder retries twice.
❏
If you reset the recorder, the first inflation value is reset to 185 mmHg.
Memory
❏
The TM-2430 recorder can store 300 sets of data.
A data set consists of a SYS, a DIA and a pulse rate.
❏
When memory becomes full, the recorder displays an "M". Until you clear the
data, you can not measure blood pressure.
When the recorder saves data for more than one patient, data management
becomes complication. We recommend that patient data is transferred and
cleared from memory.
When a "B" is displayed, the backup batteries that is preserving a patient`s data
are weak. Please replace batteries as soon as possible.
ID number
❏
If you reset the recorder, the ID number is set to "1".
❏
The ID number can be set using the optional software.

Preparing the patient
Patient instructions
Advise the patient on how to cope with mis-operation and contingencies.
Cautions during automatic measurement
❏
Patient should relax and be quiet, when the recorder starts inflating the cuff.
❏
Minimize noise and movement during the measurements.
❏
The recorder displays the patient's blood pressure within one minute after the
measurement.
❏
There is the possibility of re-measuring the blood pressure after the last
measurement. This occurs when the recorder did not acquire usable data and
the frequency of the interval is above 10 minutes. The patient should relax and
not move during the measurement.
❏
Discontinue use of recorder if the patient feels pain in his arm.
Stopping or canceling an automatic measurement
❏
When the patient needs to stop a measurement, press the START STOP key.
The recorder beeps, releases the air in the cuff and an error is displayed. The
recorder will inflate the cuff for the next time period automatically.
❏
When the AUTO ON/OFF key is pressed and held for approx. 3 seconds, the
recorder exits the automatic measurement mode and the "A" disappears.
Conversly, by pressing the AUTO ON/OFF key again, the "A" will reappear.
Manual measurement
❏
For the patient to start a measurement at once, press the START STOP key.
❏

Caution
❏
The standard cuff that is included with the TM-2430 is a left arm cuff.
❏
If the cuff is not attached at the correct position, the recorder may not measure
the blood pressure correctly and an error may occur.
❏
The left cuff is for use on the left arm of about 20cm ~ 31cm. If you need a
different cuff, purchase a cuff of the proper size and arm position. Refer to
"Option and Accessories".
❏
Do not use, if the patient has dermatitis, etc.
Keep the cuff clean. Exchange the cuff cover for each patient. The cuff cover
may be used for both right or left.
Steps for attaching the cuff and recorder
Step 1
Make a circle where the end of the cuff is passed through the ring.
Step 2
Search for the brachialis artery using palpation.
Initializing the recorder
Page 21
Use of Cuff Cover
Step 3
Attach the cuff directly against the skin so that the yellow mark is directly over
the brachialis artery and space it one inch above the inside of the elbow and
the lower edge of the cuff .
Step 4
Wrap the cuff so that the ring is within the slide range, it is flat and does not
slip down, but has room to insert two fingers. (If the ring is not within the slide
range, you need a proper cuff.)
Step 5
Position the air hose over the shoulder and affix it on the patient using adhesive
tape.
Step 6
Assemble the belt and carrying case.
Step 7
Position the belt so that the carrying case is on the right (left) side of the patient,
when a patient attaches left (right) arm cuff.
Step 8
Connect the air hose plug to the air socket.
Step 9
Place the recorder into the carrying case.
Caution
❏
Do not disturb the cuff or air hose
during the measurement because
the recorder measures small
pressure variations.
