SELECTING THE CORRECT CUFF SIZE
HOW UA-767 PLUS 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 4 type AA (1.5 volt) batteries (alkaline batteries recommended),
or use the AC Adapter (see page E-11 for using the Monitor with AC Adapter)
and attach the cuff to the monitor before using it. To install batteries (or replace
them if the “Low Battery” symbol appears on display), proceed as follows:
1. Remove battery compartment cover by gently pushing down on arrow
and sliding cover forward.

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 will produce a reading that is higher than the correct
blood pressure. With your arm hanging at the side of your body, measure the
circumference of your upper arm at the midpoint between the shoulder and elbow.

ABOUT MEMORY
This monitor automatically stores up to ninety (90) blood pressure and pulse
measurements in memory. Measurements stored in memory are assigned an
index number in the order of the newest to the oldest. The oldest reading displays as "n01". The M symbol in the upper left corner of the display screen
indicates that you are viewing a previous measurement stored in memory.
To retrieve readings, follow these simple steps:
1. When the display screen is blank, press and quickly release
the Memory ("M") button. You will see the average blood
pressure reading displayed. Press and quickly release the
Memory button again. You will see the index number of the
most recent reading followed by the measurement.
2. If you want to retrieve other measurements in memory,
press and release the Memory button repeatedly until the
desired index number is reached (e.g. n04). The measurement will then be displayed.
3. The display will shut off automatically a few seconds after
the readings are displayed.
To clear the measurement history from memory, press and hold the Memory
button for at least five seconds while the display screen is blank. Release the
button when you see the M symbol flash and disappear in the upper left

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
one’s 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 5 minutes between readings, or without raising
your arm to allow blood to flow back to the heart, 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. For hypersensitive individuals, these variations are even more pronounced. Normally, blood pressure rises during work or play and falls to its
lowest levels during sleep.
ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Assessing High Blood Pressure for Adults
The following standards for assessing high blood pressure (without regard to
age or gender) have been established as a guideline. Please note that other
risk factors (e.g. diabetes, obesity, smoking, etc.) need to be taken into consideration and may affect these figures. Consult with your physician for an
accurate assessment.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Answers to Why Your Readings Are Different
Between Home and at the Doctor’s Office
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.
Why are my readings different between home and at a doctor’s office?
Can Hypertension Be Controlled?
In many individuals, hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle andminimizing 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:
When I bring my monitor to a doctor’s office, why do I get a different
measurement from my monitor to that taken by a doctor or nurse?
Don’t smoke.
Reduce salt and fat intake.
Maintain proper weight.
Exercise routinely.
Have regular physical
checkups.
Monitor your blood
pressure at periodic intervals.
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.” 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.
E-14
ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
LifeSource Health Line (Toll-Free): 1-888-726-9966
Your blood pressure readings taken in a doctor’s office or hospital setting may
be elevated as a result of apprehension and anxiety. This response is known
as white coat hypertension.
The healthcare professional may be using a different sized cuff. The size of
the bladder inside the cuff is critical for the accuracy of the measurement.
This may give you a different reading. A cuff too large will produce a reading
that is lower than the correct blood pressure; a cuff that is too small will produce a reading that is higher than the correct blood pressure. There may also
be other factors that can cause the difference in measurements.
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.
• Do not cross legs and keep your feet flat on the floor.
• Relax for 5 minutes before measurement.
• Use the correct cuff size to get an accurate reading.
• Sit still during measurement – no talking, eating or sudden
movements.
• Record your measurement in a logbook.

TROUBLESHOOTING
ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Establishing Baseline Measurements
The most important method to get an accurate blood pressure measurement
is consistency. To get the most benefit out of your monitor, it is important to
establish a “baseline measurement.” This helps build a foundation of measurements that you can use to compare against future readings. To build this
baseline measurement, devote two weeks for consistent blood pressure monitoring. This involves doing everything the same way when you measure (e.g.
measuring during the same time of day, in the same location, sitting in the
same chair, using the same cuff, etc.). Once you establish your baseline measurement, you can start evaluating if your measurement has been affected
based on things lifestyle changes or medication treatment.
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 the back of the manual for the blood
pressure tracking record.
