GENERAL REMARKS
1.
To deflate the cuff quickly, press the “START/STOP” switch.
2.
The attached cuff is suitable for arm circumferences of 22-32 cm.
3.
When attaching the cuff, the air hose should be placed on the inside of your arm
on top of the artery.
4.
Self measurement is not therapy! In no event should you change the dosage of
your medication prescribed by your physician.
5.
As preparation for measuring your blood pressure, you should urinate and then
remain relatively still for 10 to 15 minutes prior to measurement.
6.
Exercising, eating, drinking, smoking, etc., prior to measurement may affect the
results.
7.
Your blood pressure varies constantly throughout the day. Measurements
should be taken regularly at the same time each day.
8.
DO NOT place too much emphasis on the results of one measurement. Keep a
continuing record of your blood pressure variations. A complete picture can only
be obtained from a large number of readings.
9.
Emotional stress tends to cause your blood pressure to rise.
To obtain correct blood pressure measurements
1.
Take five or six deep breaths and then relax before measuring your blood
pressure. If you are tense when taking the measurement, you will not get a valid
reading.
2.
Your blood pressure will be elevated if you are anxious or irritated, suffering from
lack of sleep or constipation, or have just taken some exercise or eaten a meal.
3.
Wrap the cuff around your arm and tighten it so that one finger can be inserted
See page 13, 14)
between the cuff and arm. (
4.
DO NOT measure your blood pressure after bathing or drinking.
5.
If you feel the need to urinate, do so before measuring your blood pressure.
6.
Measure your blood pressure where the room temperature is around 20°C. DO
NOT measure your blood pressure when it is too cold (below 10°C) or too hot
(above 40°C) in the room.
7.
DO NOT try to measure your blood pressure immediately after drinking coffee or
tea or after smoking.
8.
Measure your blood pressure when you are relaxed and still. Keep the center of
the cuff at the level of your heart and DO NOT move your arm or talk.

GENERAL REMARKS
9.
DO NOT measure blood pressure when the cuff has been on your arm for a few
minutes or more. During this time, your arm will have built up a higher blood
pressure and you will not get valid reading.

Definitions and Classifications of Blood Pressure Levels
Measure your blood pressure at the same time each day.
* Your blood pressure changes all the time. This means that data gathered over
a long period has far more significance than data from just one measurement.
For this reason, you must measure your blood pressure on a daily basis. Ideally,
you should measure your blood pressure at the same time each day, wherever
possible.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE AND MAINTENANCE
1.
If you suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure or other circulatory disease,
consult your physician before using the monitor.
2.
If the cuff pressure feels abnormal or you experience any other irregularity while
using the cuff, reduce the pressure immediately by pressing the “START/STOP”
switch and then consult the sales outlet where you purchased the monitor.
3.
If you think the measurement is abnormal or if measurement makes you feel
unwell, discontinue use and consult your physician.
4.
Blood pressure measurement may not be possible for anyone with a weak pulse
or arrhythmia.
5.
Repeated blood pressure measurement may cause problems such as
congestion or swelling in some people.
6.
Frequently repeated blood pressure measurements will not give accurate
results. Allow an interval of about 10 minutes between measurements.
7.
If you suffer from a severe problem with blood circulation in your arms, consult
your physician before using the monitor. Failure to do so could be hazardous to
your health.
8.
Measurement may not be possible for anyone with insufficient blood flow to the
area where measurements will be taken or who suffers from a frequent irregular
heartbeat. Consult your physician for advice on whether to use the monitor.
9.
DO NOT wrap the cuff around an injured arm.
10. DO NOT wrap the cuff around an arm in which a drip (intravenous infusion)
is inserted, or which is being used for blood transfusion as part of medical
treatment. Doing so could result in an injury or a serious accident.
11. DO NOT use the monitor in the vicinity of flammable gases such as those used
for anaesthesia. Doing so could ignite the gases and cause an explosion.
12. DO NOT use the monitor in enriched oxygen environments such as a hospital’s
hyperbaric chamber or oxygen tent. Doing so could ignite the oxygen and
cause a fire.

ABOUT “BLOOD PRESSURE”
What is blood pressure?
The heart is a pump that circulates blood throughout your body. Blood is pumped
from the heart at a constant pressure into arteries. This pressure is called the
arterial blood pressure and represents, in general terms, your blood pressure. Blood
pressure is indicated by several kinds of pressures, including the systolic pressure
that occurs when the heart pumps blood, and the diastolic pressure that occurs
when blood returns to the heart.

Your blood pressure changes all the time.
Your blood pressure differs according to your age, gender and a range of other
factors. It is likely to be affected by your biorhythm during the day and by your
posture, physical activities, mental activities, level of stress and even by the air
temperature. The blood pressure of a healthy person generally varies within a day.

BLOOD PRESSURE Q&A
English
Q
Why is the blood pressure measured at home different from that measured by the
physician or at a hospital?
A
Your blood pressure may vary due to exercise, the ambient temperature or your
mental state. When you have a physician or nurse measure your blood pressure, the
pressure value is likely to be 10 to 20 mmHg higher than usual due to anxiety and/or
stress. Knowing what affects your blood pressure helps you to better monitor your
health.
Q
A
Why does the blood pressure obtained vary with measurement?
Q
A
What is the benefit of measuring my blood pressure at home?
Our blood pressure is adjusted by automatic nerve function. Blood pressure differs
with every heart beat. We are likely to think that our blood pressure is constant, but
it varies if you take measurements in repetition. Blood pressure is susceptible to the
time of day, such as morning and afternoon, season and atmospheric temperature.
In addition, blood pressure is easily affected by mental stress or emotional ups and
downs. It tends to increase when you feel tension or decrease when you are relaxed.
Blood pressure measurements taken at home give reliable data as they can be
taken when you are in a stable and relaxed condition. Physicians place considerable
importance on blood pressure measurements taken at home. You should measure
your blood pressure at the same time each day and record the variations in your blood
pressure.
Always consult your physician for an interpretation of your blood pressure
readings and to determine the proper treatment.
