Quick Read Measuring Technology
This monitor uses trend-setting Quick Read Technology to detect your blood pressure. With one
touch of a button, the device will automatically start to inflate and determine your blood pressure
by analysis of your pressure oscillations. When the measurement is completed, the device
will exhaust cuff pressure and display your systolic, diastolic, and pulse. Measurement time is
significantly shortened, and user comfort is greatly enhanced.
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 today, problems associated with high blood pressure are by
far the most common. High blood pressure's dangerously strong correlation with cardiovascular
diseases 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 overtly worried if you encountered 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
2. Install or replace 4 “AA” sized batteries in the battery compartment according to the
indications inside the compartment.
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.
Using the AC adapter
1.Connect the AC adapter with the AC adapter jack in the
back of the unit.
2.Plug the AC adapter into a standard wall socket.
1. Please unload the batteries when operating
with the AC mode for a longer period of time.
Leaving the batteries in the compartment for
a long time may cause leakage, which may
lead to damage of the unit.
2. No batteries are needed when operating with the AC adapter.
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.

4. Turn your left palm upward
and place the edge of the arm
cm above the inner side of the elbow joint.
Tighten the cuff by pulling the "Index" end
of the cuff.
5. If the Index line falls within the OK range,
indicated at the edge of the cuff, this cuff
suitable for your use. If the Index line falls out
the OK range, you may need a special cuff
measurement. Please visit

Measurement Procedure
1. Press the User-Switching key to select Memory Zone 1 or Memory Zone 2.
After a memory zone is selected, press the
measurement in the chosen memory zone.
button to reset the monitor so it can start
2. Press the
button. All digits will light up, checking the display functions. The checking
procedure will be completed after about 2 seconds.
3. After all symbols appear,
display will show a blinking “0”. The monitor is now ready to measure and will automatically
inflate the cuff slowly to start measurement.
Measurement Procedure
4. When the measurement is completed, the cuff will automatically deflate. Systolic, diastolic
and pulse will be shown simultaneously on the LCD screen. The measurement is then
automatically stored into the pre-designated memory zone.
1. This monitor automatically switches off approximately 1 minute after last measurement.
2. To interrupt the measurement, simply press any key. The cuff will deflate immediately after
any key is pressed.
3. Do not talk or move your arm or hand muscles during measurements.
Recalling Values from Memory
1. The Monitor has two Memory Zones (1 and 2). Each zone
can store up to 50 measurements.
2. To read memory values from a selected Memory Zone,
use the “User-Switching Key” to select a Memory Zone
(1 or 2) from which you want to recall values from. Then,
press the “M” key, and the values will be shown on the
LCD display with an assigned memory sequence number.
3. The monitor will display an average of the previous
measurements first. Every new press of the “M” key
calls for one set of prior values stored. Latest memory
will be recalled first. The calculated average will be
applied to a maximum of the last 3 memories.
Clearing Values from Memory
1. Press the User-Switching key to select the memory zone 1 or memory zone 2.
2. Continue to press and hold the “M” key for approximately 5 seconds, and the data in the predesignated memory zone will be erased automatically.
Press “M” Key for
5 seconds to clear all
Note : The data in both memory zones (zone 1 and zone 2) will be erased if any of the batteries
are removed, or if the AC adapter is disconnected from the unit or unplugged from the
outlet. (It is suggested that users record their data on the Blood Pressure Log before
removing or replacing batteries.)
Time Adjustment
1. To adjust the date/ time in the monitor, press the

2. Change the month by pressing the “ ” Key. Each press will increase the number by one
in a cycling manner. Press the Key. again to confirm the entry, and the screen will show a
blinking number representing the date.
3. Change the date, the hour, and the minute as described in Step 2 above, using the “

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. Wait at least
one hour after eating to take a measurement.
• 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 in between consecutive measurements.
If any abnormality should arise during use, please check the following points.
