INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the Omron HEM-739 IntelliSenseTM Automatic
Blood Pressure Monitor. Although your blood pressure fluctuates
throughout the day, no self-adjustment is necessary as the monitor
intelligently adjusts to your changing conditions.The IntelliSenseTM monitor
uses fuzzy logic intelligence to sense both your systolic and diastolic
blood pressure values, and the result is personalized inflation with every
reading.Arm discomfort and misreading due to improper cuff inflation are
virtually eliminated.
What is Fuzzy Logic?
Fuzzy logic is an exciting new technology that has actually made computers
smarter by allowing computers to think and reason more like people.
Fuzzy logic computers can process information with unclear boundaries
or relative terms rather than a conventional computer that can only
process information with rigid boundaries or absolute terms.For example,
fuzzy logic computers can think in terms of light gray, lukewarm, and
partially true, whereas conventional computers can only recognize black
or white, hot or cold, and true or false, but nothing in between.The result
is smart, user-friendly products and systems.
Your new HEM-739 uses the oscillometric method of blood pressure
measurement.This means the monitor detects your blood’s movement
through your brachial artery and converts the movements into a digital
reading.An oscillometric monitor does not need a stethoscope so the
monitor is simple to use.The HEM-739 is completely automatic.At the
push of a button, the monitor fills the cuff with air and displays your
systolic, diastolic, and pulse measurements on an extra large LCD panel.
You get fast, accurate measurements every time.
Please read this instruction manual thoroughly before using the
Omron HEM-739 IntelliSenseTM Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor.
For specific information on your own blood pressure,
CONTACT YOUR PHYSICIAN.

QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE
1.Avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes
before taking a measurement.
2.Put your left arm through the cuff loop making sure that the
bottom edge of the cuff is approximately one-half inch above
the elbow.
3.Pull the end of the cuff so that the entire cuff is evenly
tightened around your arm and press the sewn hook material
firmly against the pile side of the cuff.Make sure that your
skin will not be pinched in the D-ring once you inflate the cuff
bladder. Immediately deflate the cuff bladder and readjust
the cuff if skin becomes pinched.
4.Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and place your left
arm on a table so that the cuff is at the same level as your
heart.
5.Press the ON/OFF button.
6.After the Heart Symbol ( ) appears next to a zero on the
digital panel, press the START button.
7.Remain still throughout the entire reading.
8 When measurement is complete, the monitor alternately
displays your blood pressure and pulse on the digital panel
and automatically deflates the cuff.
9.Wait 5-10 minutes before taking another blood pressure
measurement.You may require more rest time between
readings depending on your individual physiological
characteristics.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Blood pressure is the force exerted
on the walls of your blood vessels
as blood flows through them.
Your heart is like a pump.When it
contracts, or beats, it sends a surge
of blood through the blood vessels
and pressure increases.This is
called your systolic pressure.
Heart Contracts
(Pressure Increases)
When your heart relaxes
between beats, your blood pressure
decreases.This is called your
diastolic pressure.
When a doctor takes your blood
pressure, he or she measures both
our systolic and diastolic presssures
and records them as numbers.For
xample, if your blood pressure
reading is 126/76 (126 over 76),
our systolic is 126 and your diastolic
is 76.The numbers are calculated
in millimeters of mercury and
recorded as 126/76 mm Hg.
Heart Relaxes
(Pressure Decreases)
Systolic
(Upper Number)
Diastolic
(Lower Number)
5
A FEW WORDS ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
These two numbers provide important information about your
health.The more difficult it is for your blood to flow through your
lood vessels, the higher both numbers will be.When blood
pressure is consistently above normal it is called hypertension
(high blood pressure).
Your new IntelliSenseTM Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
automatically measures your systolic and diastolic blood
pressure for you,then displays the results on an easy-to-read
digital panel!
6
A FEW WORDS ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Your blood pressure changes constantly.Blood pressure fluctuates
from day to day and minute to minute according to your body’s
needs.For example, when you are exercising or angry your blood
pressure increases, but when you are relaxing or sleeping your
lood pressure decreases.These fluctuations are completely normal.Your Omron HEM-739 Monitor is especially helpful when
tracking changes in blood pressure because it travels anywhere
and takes just seconds to use.

Note: One or two readings will not provide a true indication of
your normal blood pressure.It is very important to take regular,
daily measurements and to keep accurate records.In partnership
with your doctor, an accurate record of your blood pressure over a
period of time can be a valuable aid in diagnosing and preventing
potential health problems.
7
A FEW WORDS ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
The World Health Organization (WHO) developed the following
Blood Pressure Classification.This classification, however, is only
a general guideline because blood pressure varies from person to
person according to age, weight, and health status. CONSULT
YOUR PHYSICIAN TO DETERMINE YOUR NORMAL BLOOD
PRESSURE.

NOTE: There is not a universally accepted definition of hypotension (low blood pressure), but a systolic pressure below 99 mm
Hg is usually regarded as hypotension.

11
A FEW SUGGESTIONS BEFORE
BLOOD PRESSURE MEASUREMENT
1. Avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes
before taking a measurement.Also rest for at least 5 minutes
before taking a reading.
2. Stress raises blood pressure.Avoid taking measurements
during stressful times.
3. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your left upper arm.
4. Measurement should be taken
in a quiet place and you should
be in a relaxed, seated position.
Rest your left arm on the arm of
a chair or on a table so that the
cuff is at the same level as your
heart.
5. Remain still and do not talk during the measurement.
6. Keep a record of your blood pressure and pulse measurements
for your doctor.Remember, a single measurement does not
provide an accurate indication of your true blood pressure.You
need to take and record several measurements over a period
of time.Try to measure your blood pressure at the same time
each day for consistency.Blood pressure measurements
fluctuate considerably.
7. Wait 5 - 10 minutes between successive measurements.
Waiting allows the engorged blood vessels to return to normal.
You may require more rest time between readings depending
on your individual physiological characteristics.

HOW TO TAKE A READING
Special instructions regarding the inflation of the
IntelliSenseTM Monitor:
1.
In rare circumstances the user’s
physiological characteristics may
require a higher level of inflation.
These circumstances may include
eak pulse or an unusually high
systolic blood pressure.When this
occurs, the monitor may reinflate to
a value of about 30 mm Hg higher
than the previous inflation value.
Reinflation occurs only once.
2.
If your systolic pressure is known to
be more than 220 mmHg, push and
hold the START button until the
monitor inflates 30 to 40 mmHg
higher than your suspected systolic
pressure.
NOTE: Do not apply more
pressure than necessary.
3.
If you want to stop the measurement,
push the ON/OFF button.The monitor
will stop inflating and start deflating
apidly, then the monitor will turn off.
