Thank you for purchasing the Panasonic Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor
Measuring your own blood pressure is an important way of monitoring your
health. High blood pressure (hypertension) is a major health problem which
can be treated effectively once detected. Measuring your blood pressure
between doctor visits on a regular basis in the comfort of your home, and
keeping a record of the measurements, will help you monitor any significant
changes in your blood pressure. Keeping an accurate record of your blood
pressure will help your doctor diagnose and possibly prevent any health
problems in the future.
Basic of Blood Pressure
Your heart acts like a pump, sending blood surging through your blood
vessels each time it contracts. Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by
blood pumped from the heart on the walls of blood vessels. Systolic
pressure is the pressure exerted when the heart contracts and pumps blood
into the arteries. Diastolic pressure is the pressure exerted when the heart
expands, or relaxes. When you or your doctor take your blood pressure,
both your systolic and diastolic pressures are measured. If your blood
pressure measurement is 120 over 80 (120/80), for example, your systolic
pressure is 120 while your diastolic pressure is 80.
Important Instructions Before Use
Do not confuse self-monitoring with self-diagnosis. Blood pressure
measurements should only be interpreted by a health professional who
is familiar with your medical history.
If you are taking medication, consult with your physician to determine
the most appropriate time to measure your blood pressure. NEVER
change a prescribed medication without first consulting with your
Blood pressure can vary based on many factors, including age, gender,
weight and physical condition. In general, a person's blood pressure is
lower during sleep and higher when he or she is active. Blood pressure
can change easily in response to physiological changes. The setting in
which a person's blood pressure is measured can also affect the results.
Having one's blood pressure measured by a healthcare professional in a
hospital or clinic can cause nervousness and may result in a temporarily
elevated reading. Because blood pressure measurements taken in a
clinical setting can vary considerably from those taken at home, a
person's blood pressure should be measured not only occasionally in
the doctor's office, but also on a regular basis at home. Also, if you find
that your blood pressure is lower at home, this is not unusual. To
accurately compare with your physician's reading, take your Panasonic
blood pressure monitor to your doctor's office and compare readings in
this setting.
. People suffering from cardiac arrhythmia, vascular constriction, liver
disorders or diabetes, people with cardiac pacemakers or a weak pulse,
and women who are pregnant should consult their physician before
measuring their blood pressure themselves. Different values may be
obtained due to their condition.
Try to take your blood pressure measurements at the same time and
under the same conditions every day.
¢ The ideal time to measure your blood pressure (to obtain your so-called
"base blood pressure") is in the morning just after waking up, before
having breakfast and before any major activity or exercise. If this is not
possible, however, try to take measurements at a specified time prior to
breakfast, and before you have become active. You should relax for
about 5 minutes before taking the measurement.
e The following situations may cause substantial variations in blood
pressure readings and should therefore be avoided at least 30 minutes
prior to taking your blood pressure.
Blood pressure will be higher than usual:
- when you are excited or tense
- when you are taking a bath
- during exercising or soon after exercising
- when it is cold
- within one hour after eating
- after drinking coffee, tea or other beverages containing caffeine
- after smoking tobacco
- when your bladder is full
Blood pressure will be lower than usual:
- after taking a bath
- after drinking alcohol

Why are the blood pressure values measured at home different
from those measured at the doctor's office?
A Blood pressure varies 24 hours a day.
In addition, it can change greatly depending on the weather, your
mental state, exercise, etc.
In particular, there is the phenomenon of "White coat hypertension” at
doctor's offices, where the blood pressure measured in a doctor's office
is higher because of stress or worry.
In addition, if the blood pressure measured at home is sometimes
higher and sometimes lower than the blood pressure measured at
the doctor's office, the following can be considered. Please pay
attention to these points when taking measurements.
@ ls the pressure cuff wrapped firmly?
®е Make sure that the pressure cuff is not
wrapped too loosely or too tightly.
e Is the pressure cuff wrapped around the
upper arm? Make sure it is not partly
covering the elbow.
For how to wrap the pressure cuff
correctly, refer to p. 10.
Do you feel worried or irritated?
Before taking measurements, take 2 or 3
deep breaths and relax to stabilize blood
pressure. In addition, it is recommended that
you sit quietly for about 4 to 5 minutes
before taking measurements.
Why are measured blood pressure values different each time | take
a measurement?
A @® Blood pressure changes even within a single
day, and it is different depending on the
measurement posture. Because of this,
/ when taking measurements, be sure to
- 8 always take measurements under the same
® For persons taking blood pressure
medication, blood pressure may change
greatly due to the effects of the medication.
® When taking 2 measurements in succession,

Q Why are the measured values different for the left and right arm?
It is said that differences in blood pressure
values between the left and right arms may
be around 10mmHg. The blood pressure can
be measured in either the left or right arm,
but all measurements should be taken using
the same arm.
Please do not attempt to disassemble, repair or modify the device.
This may cause fire or cause the device to malfunction. It may also lead to
Please do not fold the pressure cuff back against itself.
Always use the pressure cuff on your upper arm and nowhere else.
e Either of these actions may cause the device to malfunction.
Do not apply excessive force on the device.
Do not drop the device.
Measurements may be impaired if the device is used close to televisions,
microwave ovens, X-ray equipment or other devices with strong electrical
Please measure your blood pressure at a sufficient distance from such
devices or switch them off.
The cuff may lose some of its elasticity at temperatures below 0°C. If the
device is exposed to such extreme temperatures, it is a good idea to leave it
until it warms up to room temperature before taking the next measurement.
As a basic principle, the device should not be exposed to extreme
conditions (cold, heat, humidity, dust).
Do not allow dust or other foreign objects to enter the device as this may
cause it to malfunction.
Cleaning the device
e Do not use anything other than a cloth with warm water and a little soapy
to wipe the device.
¢ Do not use thinners, benzene, or alcohol on the device as this may cause
discoloration and cracks.
e Cuff can not be washed.
¢ Avoid exposing the device to high temperatures, high humidity and direct
sunlight as this can cause the device to malfunction.
Long-term storage
e Remove the batteries before storing the device for long periods of time.
Failure to do so may result in the batteries leaking, which may cause the
device to malfunction.
