HOW UA-774 WORKS
LifeSource® blood pressure monitors are easy to use, accurate and digitally
display full measurement readouts. Our technology is based on the “oscillometric method” – a noninvasive blood pressure determination. The term
“oscillation” refers to any measure of vibrations caused by the arterial pulse.
Our monitor examines the pulsatile pressure generated by the arterial wall as
it expands and contracts against the cuff with each heartbeat.
The cuff is inflated until the artery is fully blocked. The inflation speed is
maximized and the pressure level is optimized by the device. The monitor
takes measurements while the cuff is both inflating and deflating. This results
in a faster measurement providing greater comfort to the user.
BEFORE YOU START
You must install 4 type AA (1.5 volt) batteries (alkaline batteries recommended),
or use the AC Adapter (see page E-14 for using the Monitor with AC Adapter)
and attach the cuff to the monitor before using it. To install batteries (or replace
them if the “Low Battery” symbol appears on display), proceed as follows:
1. Remove battery compartment cover by gently pushing down on arrow
and sliding cover forward.
2. Put in bottom row of batteries first. Place the
batteries in compartment with positive (+) and
negative (–) terminals matching those indicated in the compartment. Be sure batteries make
contact with compartment terminals.
Step 2
3. Replace cover by sliding it into the compartment and gently pressing into place.
NOTE: Rechargeable batteries will not work
with this monitor.

SELECTING THE CORRECT CUFF SIZE
Using the correct cuff size is important for an accurate reading. A cuff that is
too large will produce a reading that is lower than the correct blood pressure;
a cuff that is too small will produce a reading that is higher than the correct
blood pressure. With your arm hanging at the side of your body, measure the
circumference of your upper arm at the midpoint between the shoulder and
elbow.

Cuff Size Indicator On The Cuff
Our cuff has an indicator which tells you whether you are using the correct
cuff size or not. Place the cuff on your arm (see Page E-7 to learn how to put
the cuff on correctly) and if the Index Mark
points within the Proper Fit
Range, you are using the correct cuff size. If the Index points outside of the
Proper Fit Range, contact A&D Medical at 1-888-726-9966 (in Canada, call

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Tips for Blood Pressure Monitoring:
☞ Relax for about 5 minutes before measurement.
☞ Do not smoke or ingest caffeine at least 30 minutes prior to
measurement.
☞ Remove constricting clothing and place cuff on bare arm.
☞ Unless your physician recommends otherwise, use left arm
to measure pressure.
☞ Do not talk during measurement.
☞ Do not cross legs and keep you feet flat on floor during measurement.
Now you are ready. Follow these simple steps:
1. Sit comfortably with your left arm resting on a flat surface so that the center of your upper arm is at the same height as your heart.
2. Lay left arm on the table, palm up and thread
cuff end through metal loop, smooth side
against arm. Then position the tube off-center
toward the inner side of arm in line with the
little finger.
Cuff
Tube
3. Pull the end of the cuff to tighten it, fold back
the extra material, and fasten securely. The cuff
should be snug but not too tight. You should
be able to insert two fingers between the cuff
and your arm.
IMPORTANT: Measure pressure at the same
time each day.
4. Confirm that the index points within the proper fit range.
5. Designate yourself as User 1 or User 2. To keep track of your previous
blood pressure measurements accurately, User 1 should use the START 1
button and User 2 should use the START 2 button.

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
6. Press the START 1 or START 2 button. Your average
blood pressure reading will appear with the number of
measurements stored in memory (i.e. A25 = total of 25
measurements stored in memory). As the cuff pressurizes, measurement will begin and the Cuff Inflation
Meter will show on the display screen. It is normal for
the cuff to feel very tight.
NOTE: If viewing measurements or storing readings in memory are not
desired, press both the START 1 and START 2 buttons at the same time. A
reading will be taken, but not stored into memory.
NOTE: If you wish to stop inflation at any time, press either START button
again.
NOTE: The maximum cuff pressure is set at 280 mmHg. If it reaches 280
mmHg, the auto exhaust will be triggered and cuff pressure will deflate to 0.
7. When the inflation is complete, the deflation
starts automatically and the ❤ blinks, indicating that the measurement is in progress.
Once the pulse is detected, the ❤ symbol
flashes with each pulse beat.
NOTE: If an appropriate pressure is not
obtained, the device automatically starts to
inflate again.

8. When the measurement is complete, the systolic and diastolic pressure
readings and pulse rate are displayed and stored. See Page E-10 for more
details about the memory function. The cuff deflates and the monitor
automatically shuts off after 60 seconds, or you can turn it off by pressing
either START button.
9. Remove cuff and make a note of your blood pressure and pulse rate on
the chart provided, indicating date and time of measurement. Additional
logbook charts can be downloaded and printed for free at
www.LifeSourceOnline.com or in Canada, www.autocontrol.com.
We advise that you record the date and time after each measurement because
an accurate blood pressure history relies not on single or sporadic readings
but on a pattern over time.
NOTE: Allow at least 5 minutes between measurements on the same
person.

WHAT IS AN IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT
The UA-774 Blood Pressure Monitor provides a blood pressure and pulse
rate measurement even when an irregular heartbeat occurs. The Irregular
Heartbeat symbol
will appear in the display window in the event an
Irregular Heartbeat has occured during measurement. An irregular heartbeat
is defined as a heartbeat that varies by 25% from the average of all heartbeat
intervals during the blood pressure measurement. It is important that you
relax, remain still and refrain from talking during measurements.
NOTE: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this
symbol frequently.
ABOUT CUFF INFLATION METER
The Cuff Inflation Meter is located on the left side of the display screen to tell
you when the blood pressure monitor is inflating and deflating the cuff. The
Cuff Inflation Meter moves up during inflation and moves down during
deflation.

this monitor.
ABOUT MEMORY
The memory function on the UA-774 blood pressure monitor
is designed for two people. For each START button, the monitor can store up to 30 readings in memory. To keep track of
previous measurements accurately, we recommend that you
use the same START button each time you take a blood pressure reading.
To recall previous measurements in memory, press and hold
the START 1 or START 2 button. Your average blood pressure
reading will appear with the number of measurements taken
flashing several times. Release the button after the display
switches to the memory index number (see illustration on
right). The previous measurements are displayed from most
recent to oldest. When viewing previous measurements, you
will see the "M" symbol appear on the upper left corner of this
display. You can stop measurements by pressing either START
button again.
NOTE: Memory will be lost if batteries become low or are removed.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
What Is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries.
Systolic pressure occurs when the heart contracts; diastolic pressure occurs
when the heart expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury
(mmHg).
What Affects Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is affected by many factors: age, weight, time of day, activity
level, climate, altitude and season. Certain activities can significantly alter
one’s blood pressure. Walking can raise systolic pressure by 12 mmHg and
diastolic pressure by 5.5 mmHg. Sleeping can decrease systolic blood pressure by as much as 10 mmHg. Taking your blood pressure repeatedly without waiting an interval of 5 minutes between readings, or without raising
your arm to allow blood to flow back to the heart, can also affect it.
In addition to these factors, beverages containing caffeine or alcohol, certain
medications, emotional stress and even tight-fitting clothes can make a difference
in the readings.
What Causes Variations In Blood Pressure?
An individual’s blood pressure varies greatly from day to day and season to
season. For hypersensitive individuals, these variations are even more pronounced. Normally, blood pressure rises during work or play and falls to its
lowest levels during sleep.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
What Is Hypertension?
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is the diagnosis given when readings
consistently rise above normal. It is well known that hypertension can lead to
stroke, heart attack or other illness if left untreated. Referred to as a “silent
killer” because it does not always produce symptoms that alert you to the
problem, hypertension is treatable when diagnosed early.
Can Hypertension Be Controlled?
In many individuals, hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle andminimizing stress, and by appropriate medication prescribed and monitored
by your doctor. The American Heart Association recommends the following
lifestyle suggestions to prevent or control hypertension:
Don’t smoke.
Reduce salt and fat intake.
Maintain proper weight.
Exercise routinely.
Have regular physical
checkups.
Monitor your blood
pressure at periodic intervals.
Why Measure Blood Pressure at Home?
It is now well known that, for many individuals, blood pressure readings
taken in a doctor’s office or hospital setting might be elevated as a result of
apprehension and anxiety. This response is commonly called “white coat
hypertension.” In any case, self-measurement at home supplements your doctor’s readings and provides a more accurate, complete blood pressure history.
In addition, clinical studies have shown that the detection and treatment of
hypertension is improved when patients both consult their physicians and
monitor their own blood pressureat home.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Answers to Why Your Readings Are Different
Between Home and at the Doctor’s Office
Why are my readings different between home and at a doctor’s office?
Your blood pressure readings taken in a doctor’s office or hospital setting may
be elevated as a result of apprehension and anxiety. This response is known
as white coat hypertension.
When I bring my monitor to a doctor’s office, why do I get a different
measurement from my monitor to that taken by a doctor or nurse?
The healthcare professional may be using a different sized cuff. The size of
the bladder inside the cuff is critical for the accuracy of the measurement.
This may give you a different reading. A cuff too large will produce a reading
that is lower than the correct blood pressure; a cuff that is too small will produce a reading that is higher than the correct blood pressure. There may also
be other factors that can cause the difference in measurements.
Keys to Successful Monitoring:
Blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day. We recommend that you are
consistent in your daily measurement routine:
• Measure at the same time every day.
• Sit in the same chair/position.
• Do not cross legs and keep your feet flat on the floor.
• Relax for 5 minutes before measurement.
• Use the correct cuff size to get an accurate reading.
• Sit still during measurement – no talking, eating or sudden
movements.
• Record your measurement in a logbook.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
Establishing Baseline Measurements
The most important method to get an accurate blood pressure measurement
is consistency. To get the most benefit out of your monitor, it is important to
establish a “baseline measurement.” This helps build a foundation of measurements that you can use to compare against future readings. To build this
baseline measurement, devote two weeks for consistent blood pressure monitoring. This involves doing everything the same way when you measure (e.g.
measuring during the same time of day, in the same location, sitting in the
same chair, using the same cuff, etc.). Once you establish your baseline measurement, you can start evaluating if your measurement has been affected
based on things lifestyle changes or medication treatment.
How Do I Record My Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure readings are typically recorded with the systolic pressure written first, followed by a slash mark and the diastolic pressure. For example,
120 mmHg systolic and 80 mmHg diastolic measurements are written as
120/80. Pulse is simply written with the letter “P” followed by the pulse
rate—P 72, for example. Please see the back of the manual for the blood
pressure tracking record.
