4. DO NOT adjust medication based on readings from this Monitor.
5. DO NOT make any adjustments to unit; there are no user serviceable parts. Return to
Service Station for repair.

WHAT IS BLOOD PRESSURE?
Blood pressure:
Measurement of the rate of pressure exerted by the blood upon the
walls of the blood vessels. The heart contracts and then
relaxes, producing the two levels of blood pressure.
Systolic:
The highest point of blood pressure; level of blood pressure
produced as your heart beats.
Diastolic:
The lowest point of blood pressure; level of blood pressure
produced as your heart rests between beats.
Millimeters of Mercury (mmHg):
Blood pressure measurements are measured in terms of the
height of mercury in a column. Measurements are written one
over the other. For example, a systolic pressure of 120 mmHg and
diastolic pressure of 80 mmHg is expressed as “120 over 80.”
Blood pressure varies constantly and may change due to:
physical trauma
mental anxieties
smoking
--- exercise
eating
drinking caffeinated or alcoholic beverages

Only a qualified physician can determine whether your blood pressure is normal.
Hypertension:
is high blood pressure, and is most common among adults and the
elderly; left unattended, it can cause serious health problems such as a
stroke, heart attack, etc. Therefore, it is important to monitor blood
pressure on a continued and timely basis.
IMPORTANT:
Only a physician is qualified to interpret your blood pressure
measurements, and no device can replace regular medical examinations by your physician. It is recommended that your physician
review your procedure for using this blood pressure monitor. Your
physician should verify blood pressure measurements before
making adjustments to medication.
BLOOD PRESSURE RANGES
In young, healthy adults the normal blood pressure range is between 100 and 140 mmHg (millimeters of mercury) for SYSTOLIC pressure, and between 60 and 90 mmHg for DIASTOLIC
pressure.
The range of pressure can vary considerably depending on age and physical condition.
ONLY A QUALIFIED PHYSICIAN CAN DETERMINE WHAT IS “NORMAL” FOR A
PARTICULAR PERSON.
Your reading can also vary during the .day and depending on your physical condition and activity
level. In general, readings will be lower when you are calm and rested, and higher following
physical activity. There will be some variance in consecutive readings or readings from one arm
to the other.
For these reasons, it is recommended that blood pressure be measured after sitting or
resting quietly for 30 minutes or more following any strenuous activity.
To minimize variations, readings should be taken at similar times and under similar conditions of
stress. Record daily readings for accurate comparisons.

Measurement in progress; remain quiet.
Mark flashes when power is
turned on and there is air remaining in the Cuff. Mark
flashes at the completion of
the measurement until exhaust is complete.
Automatic exhaust occurs.
Measurement began, but the
pressure was insufficient.
Set the ON/OFF Button to Off.
Set it back to ON, and then

when “0” appears.
Appears when the battery is
excessively low.
Replace all four batteries with
new ones. (4 - AAA
Alkaline batteries)
Appears when the blood
pressure cannot be measured accurately.
Press ON/OFF Button to turn
OFF. Press again to ON and
start the measurement again
when “0” appears.
The pulse is very weak; or
the finger is cold; or Finger
Cuff is too loose.
If you have poor circulation in
your hand, you will not get a
reading. Warm up your hand
and retry measurement.
Tighten Finger Cuff and retry
measurement.

BATTERY INSTALLATION
4 AAA alkaline batteries are required. Remove the
battery cover and insert batteries into the battery
. compartment on back of monitor. (Fig.1) Be sure that
you insert the batteries according to the polarities
specified on the bottom of the battery compartment. If
Monitor is to be stored for extended periods, remove the
batteries.
Figure 1
HOW TO USE YOUR SUNBEAM DIGITAL
BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR
1. Slide the Cuff Size Adjuster to the far left (L position)
to open the finger cuff fully.
2. Insert your left index finger fully into the Finger Cuff.
(Use of an alternate finger will result in an improper
reading) (Fig.2) Be sure your finger is warm and
relaxed. (If your finger is cold an improper reading may
result)
Figure 2
3. Press the ON/OFF Button. Three sets of symbols will
appear in rapid sequence on the display. (Fig. 3) Wait
for the "O" symbol to appear in the display before
starting measurement, indicating the unit is ready to
measure.
4. Slide the Cuff Size Adjuster to the right until the Cuff
Size Indicator light turns on. When the red light turns
on, this means that the Finger Cuff is too tight. If your
fingers are slender, the smallest finger cuff position may
be the most suitable. In this case, the red Too Tight
Indicator will not light up. An inaccurate blood pressure
reading may result from improper Finger Cuff adjustment.
5. Hold the Monitor steady at heart level with one or
both hands. Be sure that when holding the Monitor, your
left hand is relaxed. Press the Start Button. The Finger
Cuff will automatically inflate to a pressure of about 200
mmHg. If a higher starting point than 2OOmmHg is
required, the monitor will stop inflation automatically,
then resume inflation after determining the correct
starting point.
Figure 3
6. Remain still after inflation is completed. The Monitor
will then begin deflation of the Finger Bladder automatically. Pressure readings will be indicated in the display
as the pressure in the Finger Bladder decreases. As the
Monitor continues to deflate the Finger Bladder, a heart
will start to flash in the display. (Fig. 4)
7. The Monitor will deflate automatically when measurement is complete, and the resulting blood pressure
readings will be indicated in the display. Blood pressure
readings (Systolic on the left, Diastolic on the right), will
be displayed alternately with the pulse (Pul) reading.
(Fig. 5)
Figure 4
8. Display of measurement results will continue until the
power is turned off. The Monitor will shut off automatically after approximately 2 minutes.
9. Wait at least 10 minutes between readings. To
discontinue a measurement for any reason, press the
ON/OFF Button. This causes the finger cuff to deflate
rapidly. Before removing your finger from the Finger
Cuff, slide the Cuff Adjuster to the left. Failure to do
so could result in damage to the Finger Cuff.
