About Blood Pressure
What is blood pressure?
Blood pressure is the force generated by the blood
against the walls of arteries during cardiac contraction
and relaxation (e.g., the pumping action of the heart).
What are systolic pressure and diastolic pressure?
When ventricles contract and pump blood out of the
heart, blood pressure reaches its maximum value.
This highest pressure in the cycle is known as systolic
pressure. When the heart relaxes between heartbeats,
the lowest blood pressure is diastolic pressure.
5
What is mean arterial pressure (MAP)?
The mean arterial pressure (MAP) is the average
pressure that forces blood through the arteries. It is
not the average of the systolic and diastolic blood
pressure; rather, MAP corresponds to a state of balance
between the compressive and expansive forces acting
What is the standard blood pressure classification?
Figure 3 illustrates the blood pressure classifications
by World Health Organization (WHO) and International
Society of Hypertension (ISH) in 1999.
Reference material: 1999 World Health Organization
International Society of Hypertension Guidelines for the
management of hypertension, Journal of Hypertension,
1999, 17(2): 151-183.
on the arterial wall when there is no distension outward
or inward. MAP is an excellent way to evaluate the
stress on the walls of your blood vessels, and can be
used to evaluate excessive load on the cardiovascular
system. Show your MAP history to your doctor to
provide additional information that may help him or her
understand your situation.
Why measure your blood pressure?
Blood pressure measurement can highly reflect one’s
health condition. High blood pressure is potentially linked
to serious illnesses such as stroke, heart disease and
kidney failure.
Since there is no symptom most of the time, many
hypertensive people do not realize they are at risk until
their health is seriously threatened.

NOTE:
• Blood pressure is considered high when either the
diastolic or systolic blood pressure value exceeds the
normal range. When a patient’s systolic and diastolic
blood pressures fall into different categories, the
higher category should apply.
• Only a physician can tell you your normal blood
pressure range and the point at which you are at risk.
Consult your physician to obtain these values. If the
measurements taken with these products fall outside
the range, consult your physician.
Grade 3 hypertension (severe)
Grade 2 hypertension (moderate)
Grade 1 hypertension (mild)
Subgroup borderline
Why does my blood pressure fluctuate
throughout the day?
Individual blood pressure varies greatly both on a daily
and a seasonal or temperature basis. These variations
may be more pronounced in hypertensive patients.
Normally the blood pressure rises while at work and is at
its lowest during sleep.

during which time the unit detects pressure oscillations
generated by beat-to-beat pulsatile, which is used to
determine the systolic, mean and diastolic pressure, and
also your pulse rate. Any motion during this period will
result in an incorrect measurement. After all readings are
determined and displayed on the LCD, the measurement
is finished and the wrist cuff automatically deflates.
Getting Started
Installing And Replacing The Batteries
The graph above illustrates the variations over a single
day with measurement taken every 5 minutes. The thick
line represents sleep time. The rises in blood pressure
at 4PM (A in the graph) and 12AM (B in the graph)
correspond to an attack of pain and sexual intercourse
(Beven, Honour & Stott, Clin. Sci. 36:329, 1969).
1. Slide off the battery cover.
2. Install the batteries by matching the correct polarity,
as shown below. Always use the correct battery type
(2 alkaline LR03 AAA-size).

all the batteries at the same time - it is dangerous to
mix old and new batteries. Contact your local waste
disposal authority for instructions on how to dispose
of used batteries. Used batteries can be harmful to
the environment, and should not be thrown out with
household trash.
Positioning The Wrist Cuff
It is important to properly position the wrist cuff to
ensure that you receive an accurate reading.
1. Remove all accessories (watch, bracelet, etc.) from
your left wrist. If your physician has diagnosed you
with poor circulation in your left arm, use your right
wrist.
2. Roll or push up your sleeve to expose the skin.
3. Apply the cuff to your left wrist with your palm facing
up.
4. Position the edge of the cuff about 0.4 inches (1cm)
from the bottom of your palm.
5. Fasten the wrist cuff around your wrist, leaving no
extra room between the cuff and your skin. If the cuff
is too loose, the measurement will not be accurate.
Setting Date, Time And Measurement Units
It is important to set the clock before using your blood
pressure monitor, so that a time stamp can be assigned
to each record that is stored in the memory.
1. When the unit is off, press and hold SET for 2 seconds
to enter the setting mode.
How The Blood Pressure Monitor Works
This product uses the Oscillometric Measuring method to
detect your blood pressure. Before every measurement,
the unit establishes a “zero pressure” equivalent to the
air pressure.
Then it starts inflating the wrist cuff to 180mmHg or
higher until it senses that it has blocked your blood
in the artery. After that, the deflation process starts,

Taking A Blood Pressure Measurement
You can choose to take your blood pressure while sitting
or lying down. Below are some helpful tips for taking a
measurement:
• The unit automatically switches off 1 minute after
taking a measurement. To save the battery life, press
as soon as you are finished to turn off the unit.
• Be sure to set the clock before taking your first
measurement, or whenever you replace the batteries,
so that the date and time are stored in the memory
with your history. For instructions, refer to p. 8.
• It is important to relax when taking your blood
pressure. Try to take a 15-minute rest before you
begin.
• Do not lean backward or bend your wrist inward while
taking a measurement.
• Avoid talking or moving your fingers and hand while
taking a measurement. Rapid movements or other
activities may alter your reading.
• Wait at least an hour before taking your blood
pressure if you have just eaten a large meal.
• Do not smoke or drink alcohol before taking your
blood pressure.
• Do not measure your blood pressure if you are under
stress.
To take a measurement:
1. Choose the position you from which you wish to
measure - sitting or lying down.
2. Position your body so that your wrist is parallel with
your heart, using the chart and illustrations below as
a guide.
3. Relax your hand and press to turn on the unit.
A voice message will remind you to relax and remain
still. It then begins inflating the wrist cuff. Once the
pressure reaches 180 mmHg, it will slowly deflate
until the measurement results show on the LCD.
