How the 1140 Works
Your model 1140 uses the oscillometric method to
detect your blood pressure. Before the cuff starts
inflating, the device will establish a baseline cuff
pressure, which is equivalent to the air pressure. The
measurement of your blood pressure is based on
this baseline pressure. After the cuff inflates to
block your blood in the artery, the deflation process
starts. During the deflation of the wrist cuff, your
1140 is detecting the pressure oscillations
generated by the beat-to-beat pulsatile. Any muscle
movement during this period of time will cause
measurement error. After detecting the amplitude
and the slope of the pressure oscillations during the
deflation process, your 1140 will determine the
systolic and diastolic pressures for you, and your
pulse rate is detected at the same time.
About Blood Pressure
7
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 of
identifying those at risk.
8
Blood Pressure Standard
The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a
blood pressure standard, according to which areas of lowand 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
9
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.

Fig. A.
Fig. A
Fig. B
1 cm
3. Make sure the edge of the
cuff is about 1 cm from
the palm as Fig. B.
4. In order to insure
accurate measurements,
fasten the velcro strap
securely around your wrist
so there is no extra space
between the cuff and the
wrist as Fig. C.
Fig. C
Applying the Cuff
If the cuff is not
wrapped tight enough,
the measurement values
will be false.
5. The measurement values
will be correct even if you
wrap the cuff askew.
6. If your physician has
diagnosed you with poor
circulation on your left
arm, carefully place the
cuff around your right wrist as shown in Fig. D.

16
Correct Measuring Posture
1. Place your elbow on a
table so that the cuff is at
the same level as your
heart as Fig. A.
Note: Your heart is located
slightly below your
armpit.
Relax your entire body,
especially the area
between your elbow and
fingers.
Fig. A
2. If the cuff is not at the same level as your heart or if
you can not keep your arm
Fig. B
completely still throughout
the reading, use a soft
object such as folded towel
to support your arm as
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.

18 More Accurate by Using Step Valve
Technology
The new Lumiscope 1140 Blood Pressure Monitor
incorporates cutting-edge Step Valve Technology,
resulting in greater measurement accuracy. Step
valve technology uses an electronic valve system as
opposed to the traditional mechanical valve system,
allowing the monitor to analyze oscillations during
measurement and adjust cuff pressure accordingly.
Adjustments in cuff pressure occur in steps and
result in an audible ticking as the valve releases air
from within the cuff.
Releasing pressure in steps allows the monitor to
analyze oscillations within the cuff and evaluate them
for accuracy. When the monitor does not detect
oscillations for a particular step, it releases air
pressure.
If the monitor detects oscillations, it will continue to
evaluate at that particular step until it confirms the
accuracy of those oscillations.
The monitor's ability to detect and analyze
oscillations at each step and adjust cuff pressure
accordingly results in the monitor's increased
measurement accuracy.
Helpful Tips
19
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 a
15-minute rest before taking 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.
