Blood pressure measurements determined with your model 1130 are equivalent to those obtained
by a trained observer using cuff/stethoscope auscultation method, within the limits prescribed by
the American National Standard, Electronic or Automated Sphygmomanometers. The 1130 is to be
used by adult consumers in a home environment.
• Please read this manual carefully before use. For specific information on your own blood
pressure, contact your physician. Please be sure to keep this manual.

Real Fuzzy Technology
Your Lumiscope Blood Pressure Monitor uses the oscillometric method to detect your blood
pressure. Before the cuff starts inflating, the device will establish a baseline cuff pressure
equivalent to the air pressure. Your Lumiscope unit will determine the appropriate inflation level
based on one’s pressure oscillations, followed by cuff deflation. During the deflation, the device
will detect the amplitude and slope of the pressure oscillations and thereby determine the
systolic, diastolic, and pulse for you.
About Blood Pressure
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the pressure exerted on the artery tube while blood flows through the arteries.
The pressure measured when the heart contracts and sends blood out of the heart is systolic
(highest). The pressure measured when the heart dilates with blood flowing back into the heart
is called diastolic (lowest) blood pressure.
Why Measure Your Blood Pressure?
Among the various health problems afflicting modern people, problems associated with high
blood pressure are by far the most common. High blood pressure’s dangerously strong
correlation with cardiovascular disease has made measuring blood pressure a necessity for
identifying those at risk.
Blood Pressure Standard
The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a blood pressure standard, according to
which areas of low- and high-risk blood pressure are identified. This standard, however, is a
general guideline and blood pressures vary between different people, age groups, etc.
It is important that you consult with your physician regularly. Your physician will tell you your
normal blood pressure range as well as the point at which you will be considered at risk.
Blood Pressure Fluctuation
Blood pressure fluctuates all the time!
You should not be overly worried if you
encounter two or three measurements at high
levels. Blood pressure changes over the
month and even throughout the day. It is also
influenced by season and temperature.

Installing Battery
1. Press down and lift the battery cover in the direction of the
arrow to open the battery compartment.
2. Install or replace 4 “AA” sized batteries in the battery
compartment according to the indication inside the
3. Replace the battery cover by clicking in the bottom
hooks first, then push in the top end of the
battery door.
You need to replace the batteries when:
1. Low battery icon appears on display.
2. The ON/OFF/START button is pushed and
nothing appears on display.
Batteries are hazardous waste.
Do not dispose together with the household garbage.
Applying the Arm Cuff
1. Plug in the cuff connecting tube into the unit.
2. Unwrap the arm cuff, leaving the “Index” end of the cuff through the D-ring of the cuff.
3. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. The "OK" range indication should be positioned closer
to yourself with the rubber tube pointing in the direction of your arm. Position the artery
mark ( ) over the main arteries (on the inside of your arm) in the upper arm.
Tighten the cuff by pulling the "Index" end of the cuff.
4. Turn your left palm upward and place the edge of
the arm cuff at approximately 2 to 3 cm above the
inner side of the elbow joint.
5. If the Index line falls within the OK range,
indicated at the edge of the cuff, this cuff is
suitable for your use. If the Index line falls
out of the OK range, you may need a special
cuff for measurement. Please visit or contact our service
department at 1-800-672-8293 for more
information regarding additional cuffs.
Taking a Measurement
1. Press the ON/OFF/START button. All displays will appear for approximately one second before
returning to “0”.
2. The unit will automatically inflate to the appropriate inflation
level based on the user's pulse oscillations. Measurement
will then begin. It is important to remain still and quiet
during measurement. Any significant movement may affect
measurement results.
3. When the measurement is completed, systolic, diastolic and
pulse will be shown simultaneously and be saved
automatically in memory system. Up to 60 measurement
readings can be saved in memory.
4. Press the ON/OFF/START button to turn off the power. If no
button is pressed, the unit will shut off automatically in one
Recalling Memory
1. To recall stored blood pressure readings
from memory, simply press the Memory
button. The last set of memorized
readings will be displayed.
2. Another press of the Memory button will
recall the previous set of readings.
3. All readings stored in memory will be
displayed with their sequence number.
Helpful Tips
Here are a few helpful tips to help you obtain more accurate readings:
• Do not measure your blood pressure immediately after consuming a large meal. To obtain
more accurate readings, please wait one hour before measuring.
• Do not smoke or drink alcohol before measuring your blood pressure.
• You should not be physically tired or exhausted while taking a measurement.
• It is important that you relax during measurement. Take 15-minute rest before a reading.
• Do not take measurements if you are under stress or under tension.
• Take your blood pressure at normal body temperature. If you are feeling cold or hot, wait a
while before taking a measurement.
• If the monitor is stored at very low temperature (near freezing), have it placed at a warm
location for at least one hour before using it.
• Wait about 5 minutes before taking the next pressure measurement.
If any abnormality should arise during use, please check the following points.

Check Point
Have the batteries run down?
Replace them with two new
Have the batteries polarities been
positioned incorrectly?
Re-insert the batteries in the
correct positions.
Is the cuff placed correctly?
Wrap the cuff properly so that it is
positioned correctly.
Did you talk or move during
Measure it again quietly.
Did you shake the arm with the cuff
Note: If the unit still does not work, return it to your dealer. Under no circumstance should you
disassemble the unit and attempt repairs yourself.
Cautionary Notes:
1. The unit contains high-precision assemblies. Therefore, avoid extreme temperatures,
humidity, and direct sunlight. Avoid dropping or strongly shocking the main unit, and protect it
from dust.
2. Clean the blood pressure monitor body and the cuff carefully with a slightly damp, soft cloth. Do not
iron or wash the cuff or use chemical cleaners on it.
Never use thinner, alcohol or petrol (gasoline) as a cleaner.
3. Leaky batteries can damage the unit. Remove the batteries when the unit is not used for a
long time.
4. The unit should not be operated by children.
5. If the unit is stored near freezing, allow it to acclimate at room temperature before use.
6. Your 1130 is not field serviceable. You should not use any tool to open the device nor should
you attempt to adjust anything inside the device. If you have any problems, please contact
the store from which you purchased your model 1130 or contact the Lumiscope Repair
Department at 1-800-672-8293.
7. For users diagnosed with common arrhythmia (atrial or ventricular premature beats or atrial
fibrillation), diabetes, poor circulation of blood, kidney problems, or for users who have
suffered from stroke, the device might not be suitable for use.
8. Do not use on unconscious patients.
