Introduction

Congratulations on your purchase of the new Lumiscope
model 1134. This fully-automatic, blood pressure
monitor is both easy-to-use and ideally suited for daily
measurements. The large display includes systolic blood
pressure reading, diastolic blood pressure reading and
the pulse rate, all clearly shown at the completion of
each reading.
You can store up to 99 measurements in each of the unit's
4 memory zones, ideal for users who want to monitor and
track their blood pressure on a regular basis. The 1134 is
compact and portable, making it perfect for home use and
travel.
Blood pressure measurements determined with your 1134
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.
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.

located at the bottom of this
unit. (shown in the diagram).
B. Use only the adapter
included with this unit.
Note:
Remove batteries
when using the AC
adapter for an extended
period of time.

Correct Measuring Posture
1. Place your elbow on a table
so that the cuff is at the same
level as your heart. (Fig. A.)
Fig. A
Note: The level of your heart is
slightly below your armpit.
Relax your entire body,
especially the area between
your elbow and fingers.
2. If the cuff is not at the same
level as your heart or if
you can not keep your arm
completely still throughout the
reading, use a soft object such
as a folded towel to support
your arm. (Fig. B) Do not
allow hard objects to come in
contact with the wrist cuff.
3. Turn your palm upwards.
4. Sit upright in a chair, and take
5-6 deep breaths.
Avoid leaning back or
crossing your legs while the
measurement is being taken.

Left Arm
B. Remove any clothing that restricts the upper left arm.
Wrap the cuff around your upper left arm. The rubber
tube should point in the direction of your hand. The
bottom edge of the cuff should be 0.8" ~ 1.2" (2~3
cm) above your elbow with the tube positioned over the
middle of your arm.
13
Applying the Cuff
D. To have a secure fit, pull the end of the cuff towards
you, wrap it over, then press it for closure. 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 cuff
with larger circumference.
This cuff fits arm sizes 9.2" - 18.2".

To start the measurement
Showing levels of Blood Pressure Reading
Note:
Standards for assessing high blood pressure, without
regard to age, have been established by the World Health
Organization (WHO), as shown in the chart as below. This
unit offers 6-color light signs after user's measuring. From
the light sign, it will help users to find out their health
situation. Different levels show the corresponding light color.
In order to get your correct measurement result and to avoid
erroneous measurements you should be seated quietly, your arm, hand,
and fingers should be still during measurement procedure.
A. Push the "PAGE" button to select one of the four
Memory Zones. Then push "POWER" twice. It will then
display a "FLASHING 0". After a few moments the
unit will automatically inflate displaying the increasing
pressure reading.

Irregular Heartbeat Dectection
An irregular heartbeat may cause or indicate
cardiovascular disease. This unit has a unique function
that alerts the user to the presence of an irregular
heartbeat.
Heartbeat Readings
17
Regular Heartbeat reading but below normal
When taking your blood pressure reading, if your reading
displays a value below 60 beats/sec, then the unit will
display the Pulse Value and "LO" symbols alternately.
Example: (58/LO)
Irregular Heartbeat reading
When taking your blood pressure reading, If you are
experiencing an irregular heartbeat the unit will display
the Pulse Value and "IH" symbols alternately.
Example: (90/IH)
Regular Heartbeat reading but above normal
When taking your Blood Pressure reading, if your reading
displays a value above 100 beats/sec, then the unit will
display the Pulse Value and "HI" symbols alternately.
Example: (102/HI)
Note: It is advised that you consult your physician if the irregular
heartbeat symbol "IH" appears often.
