ÿ Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Panasonic Automatic Wrist Blood Pressure
Monitor EW-BW10.
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.
J] Basics 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 mmHg over 80 mmHg (120/80), for
example, your systolic pressure is 120 mmHg while your diastolic pressure
is 80 mmHg.
I Important Instructions Before Use
Do not confuse self-monitoring with self-diagnosis. Blood pressure
measurements should only be interpreted by a health care
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
For persons with irregular or unstable circulation resulting from
diabetes, liver disease, arteriosclerosis or other medical conditions,
there may be variations in blood pressure values measured at the
Wrist versus at the upper arm. Monitoring the trends in your blood
pressure taken at either the arm or the wrist is nevertheless useful and
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.
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
- when in a moving vehicle
Blood pressure will be lower than usual:
- after taking a bath
- after drinking alcohol
Measurements may be impaired if this unit is used near a television,
microwave oven, X-ray equipment or other devices with strong
electrical fields. To prevent such interference, use the unit at a
sufficient distance from such devices or turn the devices off.
This unit is designed for use by adults. Consult with your physician
before using this unit on a child. Do not use on neonatal, infants and
This unit is not suitable for continuous monitoring during medical
emergencies or operations.

f. Do not disassemble batteries or throw them into a fire.
g. Do not short-circuit batteries.
h. Do not attempt to recharge the batteries included with the unit.
Please remove the cuff if abnormal operation, such as prolonged
overinflation, is observed.
Differences in Blood Pressure Values Measured at the Wrist Versus at
the Upper Arm
For persons with peripheral circulatory disorders* resulting from
diabetes, liver or kidney disease, arteriosclerosis or hypertension, etc.,
there may be variations in blood pressure values measured at the
wrist versus at the upper arm.
Therefore, always consult with a health professional rather than
attempting to interpret blood pressure measurements yourself.
* Persons with underlying medical conditions with bad circulation in
their hands and feet.

] Measuring Your Blood Pressure (cont.
Reading the blood pressure display
Blood pressure values for both systolic and diastolic readings are
determined as being within normal or hypertensive ranges based on
definitions and classification of blood pressure levels by the JNC 7. When
blood pressure is in the high range, the reading displayed on screen
flashes on and off to alert user.
According to JNC 7 Classification, values consistently in excess of
140 mmHg (Sys.) and/or 90 mmHg (Dia.) are considered to constitute high
blood pressure.

In general, blood pressure measurements are lower on the second
attempt because you are calmer.
For people who easily get tense, measuring twice each time is advised.
It is recommended to store all values when performing two
measurements or more.
When taking two measurements, always stay quiet for 4 to 5 minutes
after the first measurement before taking the second measurement.
