Introduction
Blood pressure measurements determined with X5 are equivalent to those obtained by
a trained observer using cuff/stethoscope auscultation method, within the limits prescribed by the American National Standard, Electronic or Automated Sphygmomanometers. This unit is to be used by adult consumers in a home environment. Do not use
this device on infants or neonates. X5 is protected against manufacturing defects by an
established International Warranty Program. For warranty information, you can contact
the manufacturer, Rossmax International Ltd.
Attention: Consult the accompanying documents. Please read this manual carefully before use. For specific information on your own blood pressure, contact
your physician. Please be sure to keep this manual.
Note: It is strongly recommended, that you consult your physician, if either the ARR icon occurs
newly for several times, or, if your ARR is known to your doctor, but the incidence of ARR
readings changes over time. This is independent whether the ARR icon is specified by another pulse arrhythmia icon or not. Your doctor will then be able to provide all required
medical test and possible therapeutic procedures.
The PARR technology is able to detect and display combined pulse arrhythmia findings.

PARR(Pulse Arrhythmia) Technology
Real Fuzzy Measuring Technology
Pulse Arrhythmia (PARR) technology specifically detects the existence of pulse arrhythmia, including atrial fibrillation (AF, AFib), Atrial and / or Ventricular Premature Contractions (PC). Pulse Arrhythmia may be related to cardiac disorders, needs medical attention and thus early diagnosis is of paramount importance. The PARR technology detects
arrhythmia during regular blood pressure checks without any additional user skills, user
interaction and measurement prolongation. Beside the blood pressure diagnosis a specific pulse arrhythmia diagnosis is provided with PARR.
Note: The PARR detection of AFib and PC is provided with a clinically proven high detection probability [1]. However, the sensitivity and specificity is limited, thus most,
but not all pulse arrhythmia will be detected and displayed. In certain patients
with uncommon clinical conditions the PARR technology may not be able to detect pulse arrhythmia. This partly comes from the fact that some arrhythmia can
only be found with an ECG diagnosis, but not with a pulse diagnosis. Thus PARR
is not meant to replace any medical ECG diagnosis by your doctor. PARR provides
an early detection of certain pulse arrhythmia, which inevitably need to be presented to your doctor in charge.
Remark: [1] Clinical Investigation of PARR - A new Oscillometric Pulse Arrhythmia Type
Discriminating Detection Technology.
This unit uses the oscillometric method to detect your blood pressure. Before the cuff
starts inflating, the device will establish a baseline cuff pressure equivalent to the air pressure. This unit will automatically determine the appropriate inflation level based on pressure oscillations, followed by cuff deflation.
During the deflation, the device will detect the amplitude and slope of the pressure oscillations and thereby determine your actual the systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood
pressure, and pulse rate.
Atrial Fibrillation Detection (AFib)
The upper chambers of the heart (the atria) do not contract, but quiver and thus blood
is driven irregularly and with lower efficiency into the ventricles. Subsequently irregular
heartbeats occurs, which mostly are associated with a fast, yet highly instable heart rate.
This condition is associated with a higher risk for the formation of cardiac blood clots.
Amongst others, they may elevate the risk of brain strokes. Beside this atrial fibrillation
may contribute to the severity of a chronic or acute heart failure condition and may be
associated with other heart-related complications. Age dependent, about 10 %- 20 %
percent of patients who suffer from an ischemic stroke also suffer from atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation most often initially occurs with temporary periods of arrhythmia and
may progress to a permanent state of this disorder in the course of time. No matter,
whether you intent to safeguard yourself from an undetected AFib state, or you measure during an ongoing period of active atrial fibrillation, or you measure in between periods of AFib, the PARR technology can be applied at any of these conditions. This unit

Note: It is strongly recommended, that you consult your physician, if either the AFib icon
occurs newly for several times, or, if your AFib is known to your doctor, but the
incidence of AFib readings changes over time. Your doctor will then be able to
provide all required medical test and possible therapeutic procedures.
Note: T he presence of a cardiac pacemaker may impair the AFib detection by PARR.
Preliminary Remarks
This Blood Pressure Monitor complies with the European regulations and bears the CE
mark “CE 0120”. The quality of the device has been verified and conforms to the provisions of the EC council directive 93/42/EEC (Medical Device Directive), Annex I essential
requirements and applied harmonized standards.
EN 1060-1: 1995/A2: 2009 Non-invasive sphygmomanometers - Part 1 - General requirements
EN 1060-3: 1997/A2: 2009 Non -invasive sphygmomanometers - Part 3 - Supplementary

EN 1060-4: 2004 Non-invasive sphygmomanometers - Part 4: Test Procedures to determine the overall system accuracy of automated non-invasive sphygmomanometers.
This blood pressure monitor was designed for long service periods. In order to ensure
continued accuracy, it’s recommended that all digital blood pressure monitors require
re-calibration. This monitor (under normal usage with approx. 3 measurements a day)
does not require re-calibration for 2 years. Once the unit should be re-calibrated the device will display . The unit should also be re-calibrated if the monitor sustains damage
due to blunt force (such as dropping) or exposure to fluids and / or extreme hot or cold
temperature / humidity changes. When
appears, simply return your device to your
nearest dealer for re-calibration service.
Blood Pressure Standard
Refer to the definitions of the World Health Organization, the blood pressure ranges
can be classified into 6 grades. (Ref. 1999 WHO-International Society of Hypertension
Guidelines for the management of Hypertension). This blood pressure classification are
based on statistical data, and may not be directly applicable to any particular patient. It
is important that you consult with your physician regularly. Your physician will tell you
your normal blood pressure range as well as the point at which you will be considered
at risk. For reliable monitoring and reference of your blood pressure, keeping long-term
records is recommended. Please download the blood pressure log at our website www.
rossmax.com.
Blood Pressure Standard World Health Organization (WHO) : 1999
Premature Contraction Detection (PC)
Extra abnormal heartbeats generated in irregular excitation sites of your heart, either in
the atria (PAC), the ventricle (PVC) or the cardiac conduction nodes (PNC). These extra
beats may disrupt your regular rhythm, they may come in early or cause a significant
pauses regarding your perceivable pulse. This is called palpitations, which can be felt in
your chest. They may occur as isolated, single events, as a series of irregular pulses or can
be distributed all over your pulse beats. If they are not related to mental stress, or acute
demanding physical load, they may be a marker for a multitude of cardiac disorders.
Some of these disorders go along with an elevated risk profile for ischemic events, either
in the heart (e,g, coronary heart disease) or outside the heart, e.g. an elevated risk for a
stroke. Some PCs may indicate on valvular or myocardial disorders and become very
important if a myocarditis (infection of the heart muscle) is suspected. This unit is able
to detect premature contractions (
). The ARR and PC icons are displayed right after
the measurement if premature contractions have been detected.
Note: It is strongly recommended, that you consult your physician, if either the PC icon
occurs newly for several times, or, if your PC is known to your doctor, but the incidence of PC readings changes over time. Your doctor will then be able to provide
all required medical test and possible therapeutic procedures.

Pulse Arrhythmia Detection (ARR)
Once the occurrence of pulse arrhythmia has been detected in the course of your blood pressure measurement, the icon ARR is displayed. In the case, that the found pulse arrhythmia
can be specified by the PARR technology, the ARR icon is accompanied by the specifically
detected type of arrhythmia, e.g. PC or AFib. Once the kind of found pulse arrhythmia cannot
be safely determined by PARR, the device is displaying ARR without any additional pulse arrhythmia type icon.

Measurement Procedures
Here are a few helpful tips to help you obtain more accurate readings:
• Blood pressure changes with every heartbeat and is in constant fluctuation throughout the day.
• Blood pressure recording can be affected by the position of the user, his or her physiological condition and other factors. For greatest accuracy, wait one hour after exercising, bathing, eating, drinking beverages with alcohol or caffeine, or smoking to measure blood pressure.
• Before measurement, it’s suggested that you sit quietly for at least 5 minutes as measurement taken during a relaxed state will have greater accuracy. You should not be
physically tired or exhausted while taking a measurement.
• Do not take measurements if you are under stress or tension.
• During measurement, do not talk or move your arm or hand muscles.
• Take your blood pressure at normal body temperature. If you are feeling cold or hot,
wait a while before taking a measurement.
• If the monitor is stored at very low temperature (near freezing), have it placed at a
warm location for at least one hour before using it.
• Wait 5 minutes before taking the next measurement.
