RX3 Plus English
Introduction
The OMRON RX3 Plus measures your blood pressure and pulse simply and
quickly from the wrist,
without the use of an inflation bulb or stethoscope. The measurement
values are stored in the memory of the OMRON RX3 Plus. The OMRON
RX3 Plus fits wrist circumferences from 13.5 to 19.5 cm.

1 How to obtain meaningful blood pressure readings
General
• The OMRON RX3 Plus is not suitable for measuring the frequency of
cardiac pacemakers.
• Consult your doctor during pregnancy, arrhythmia and arteriosclerosis.
• Avoid eating, drinking (alcohol), smoking, sport and taking a bath before
measurement.
• Be calm and relaxed before and during measurement.
• You should never change the dose of medicines prescribed by your
doctor.
Tips for use
• Check your blood pressure at least twice a day (before breakfast, after
work).
• Do not measure your blood pressure while you are in a vehicle.
• Always measure on the same wrist, prefer your left wrist for a comfortable
use.
• Wrap the wrist cuff around your wrist before start of measurement.
Caution
• Operating temperature between 10°C and 40°C.
• Operating environment must be free from excessive vibrations, shocks,
magnetic fields, electrical noise, etc.
• Stay out of sunlight during measuring.
• Keep portable phones 5 meters away during measurement.
• Do not wrap the cuff other than around your wrist.
• Do not drop the OMRON RX3 Plus.

10 General information about blood pressure
Blood circulation
The blood circulation is responsible for supplying the body with oxygen.
Blood pressure is the pressure exerted on the arteries.
The systolic blood pressure value (higher pressure or top value)represents
the blood pressure produced by contraction of the heart muscle.
The diastolic blood pressure value (lower pressure or lower value)
represents the blood pressure produced by relaxation of the heart muscle.
Classification of blood pressure
The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Society of
Hypertension (ISH) developed the blood pressure classification. This
classification is based on the blood pressure values measured while sitting
on a chair in the outpatient department of a hospital.
Systolic blood pressure
(mmHg)
Severe hypertension
180
Moderate hypertension

Mild hypertension

Diastolic

(mmHg)
According to the blood pressure classification by the WHO/ISH.
Health and blood pressure
The incidence of hypertension increases with age. In addition, a lack of
exercise, excess body fat and high levels of cholesterol (LDL), which sticks to
the inside in blood vessels, reduces elasticity of these vessels.

RX3 Plus English
Hypertension accelerates arterial sclerosis which can lead to very serious
conditions such as stroke and myocardial infarction. For these reasons it is
very important to know whether the blood pressure is within a healthy
range. Blood pressure fluctuates from minute to minute, throughout the
day. Therefore it is essential to take regular measurements to help you
identify an average blood pressure.
Symptoms of high blood pressure
High blood pressure can go unnoticed for a long time, since it does not
cause noticeable symptoms. The following are all possible causes of
abnormally high blood pressure:
• Overweight
• High cholesterol level
• Smoking
• Excessive alcohol consumption
• Stress and emotional upset
• Excessive consumption of salt
• Lack of physical exercise
• Genetic/hereditary predisposition
• Underlying illnesses, such as kidney disorders or endocrine disturbance
Blood pressure measurement
Measuring your blood pressure daily enables you to recognize high blood
pressure at an early stage and obtain medical treatment.
The oscillometric method of measurement determines your blood pressure
by measuring the pressure fluctuations caused by the pulse waves.
Since your blood pressure fluctuates within a day (see graphic next page),
you should always measure it at the same time each day to ensure that the
measurements are genuinely comparable. At the doctor’s surgery,
nervousness and tension may cause your blood pressure to be higher than
in familiar circumstances at home. This is known as “White Coat
Hypertension”.

If your blood pressure reaches upper values of 140 - 160 mmHg and lower
values of 90 - 95 mmHg in repeated measurements over several days, you
should consult your doctor for detailed medical examination. You can
assist the treatment prescribed by your doctor in the following ways:
• Loose weight and lower your cholesterol level by reducing the calories
and fat in your diet. Cut down on animal fats and eat more fruit and
vegetables.
• Reduce the consumption of alcohol.
• Reduce the intake of salt: the German League for Combating High Blood
Pressure recommends six grams of salt per day (i.e. one teaspoon) on
average.
• Stop smoking.
• Take regular exercise.
• Monitor your blood pressure.
