Yours sincerely,
Regular blood pressure monitoring is essential
for the prevention, the control and the therapy
of hypertension. It helps also to support the
doctors' work.
The World Hypertension League
recommends regular
blood pressure monitoring
The World Hypertension League is a worldwide
association of experts specialising in hypertension. The World Hypertension League recommends regular blood pressure monitoring by
doctors and patients.
for obtaining
• Important: Blood pressure measurement is not
suitable in cases of serious arteriosclerosis
(hardening of the arteries).
• The pulse display is not suitable for monitoring
the frequency of cardiac pacemakers.
• If you suffer from disorders of heart rhythm,
known as arrythmia, you should only use this
blood pressure monitor in consultation with your
doctor. In certain cases the oscillometric measuring method can produce incorrect readings.
• Pregnant women should only measure their own
blood pressure in consultation with their doctor,
since the readings may be changed by pregnancy.
• You should avoid eating, drinking (alcohol),
smoking and sports before measuring your blood
pressure, as this could affect your blood pressure
• Don’t move, don’t speak while measurement is
being taken.
• Make yourself comfortable in a chair and relax
before each reading.
• We recommend that you monitor your blood
pressure twice a day, in the morning after getting
up and in the evening after work, or as advised by
your doctor.
• Please remember: Self-measurement is not the
same as medical treatment!
You should never change the dose of medicines
prescribed by your doctor.

Your blood
the benefits
OMRON M1 is a compact, semi-automatic blood
pressure monitor. It measures your blood pressure
and pulse quickly and simply using the oscillometric measuring method..
Measuring your
blood pressure
➊ Prepare the unit
Open the battery compartment at the downside
of your device and insert the battery. Ensure that
battery contacts (+/-) are correct.
OMRON is the world leading manufacturer of
blood pressure monitors with the goal to always
fulfill the need for reliable regular monitoring.
Connect the air tubes to the sockets.

➋ Switching on the unit
When you press the (
) button all the symbols on
the display light up for approximately two seconds
in order to check the display.

Then all the symbols disappear and the air release
symbol (
) begins to flash.
When preparations for measurement are complete
the ( ) symbol appears in the display to indicate
that the monitor is ready.
Battery compartment
2 – 3 cm
➌ Fitting the cuff and Start
➍ The measurement starts
Wrap the cuff around your bare left arm so that the
green colored band (indicating the centre of the
bladder) is positioned 2 – 3 cm above your elbow
joint on the inside of your arm
(see picture).
Stop pumping when the required pressure is
reached. The air release valve automatically
reduces the cuff pressure as the value on the
display decreases.
Important! If you push up your sleeve, ensure it
does not constrict the blood flow in your arm.
Close the cuff with the fabric fastener. The green
colored band of the cuff must cover the brachial
The standard-sized cuff is designed for an arm
circumference of 22 – 32 cm. (For oversized cuffs
see page 12).
Lay your arm on a table (e.g. a cushion) with the
palm of your hand facing upwards so that the cuff
is approximately at heart level. In this way you
ensure that the blood pressure measurement obtained is neither artificially high (measurement
below heart level) or low (measurement above
heart level).
Make sure that the cuff-bladder is not filled with
air before you start pumping.
Use the bulb pump to inflate the cuff to approximately 40 mmHg above the expected systolic blood
As soon as the monitor detects the pulse beat, the
symbol ( ) begins to flash. The displayed pressure
of the cuff continues to decrease.
When the pulse beat can no longer be detected
while the cuff pressure is decreasing, the systolic
and diastolic blood pressure levels (upper value and
lower value) are displayed. The pressure symbol
) begins to flash. The blood pressure and pulse
rate are then displayed alternately.
Press the air release valve and reduce the cuff
pressure further until the pressure drop symbol
) ceases to blink. When the air has been
released completely the ( ) symbol appears on
the display.
The blood pressure reading is now complete. The
values will continue to be displayed after you have
removed the cuff. Only the original air release
valve (OMRON-standard) should be used.
The cuff should be inflated briskly in 5 – 10
seconds. Don’t pause during pumping.
• If you wish to discontinue measurement before
completion, press the air release valve until ( )
appears and turn off the monitor. Should you,
however, forget to turn the monitor off, it will
automatically switch off after 5 minutes.
• An intervall of at least 2 – 3 minutes should be
made between two successive readings, otherwise
the blood flow of the arm could be constricted,
which would distort the results of the reading.
• The monitor should be turned off after each
reading, in order to avoid unnecessary drain on
the batteries.
Failure, causes and rectification
Failure and their possible causes
Incorrect measurement is indicated by
or EE
1. A correct result could not be obtained due
to too much movement of the body or arm.
2. The cuff is not fitted correctly.
3. Your clothing has constricted your blood
4. The cuff has not been inflated sufficiently.
5. The cuff has been over-inflated.
The pressure does not increase although you
are pumping firmly.
The cuff was inflated before the symbol ( )
was indicated.
Check whether the airtube is connected
properly to the socket.
Press the air release valve until the
symbol (
) goes out and ( ) appears,
restart the reading.
The blood pressure levels are extremely low
or high, or unlikely values are displayed.
Please follow the instructions on pages
5 – 7 and repeat the measurement.
The display does not light up when the (
button is pressed.
1. The batteries are exhausted.
2. The battery +/- polarity has been reversed.
3. The battery contacts are dirty.
The batteries are weak or exhausted.
1. Repeat the measurement calmly and
without rushing. Do not move your
arm and refrain from speaking.
2. Check whether the cuff has put on
properly and repeat the measurement.
3. Relieve the constriction by removing
the article of clothing.
4. Release the air from the cuff by pressing the valve and restart the measurement. Increase the pressure when inflating the cuff by approx. 40 mmHg..
5. Repeat the measurement with less
1. Check the batteries and, if necessary, fit
new batteries.
