Wenn dauerhaft erhöhte oder unregelmäßige Hochdruckwerte angezeigt werden
kontaktieren Sie bitte Ihren Arzt.
English
Panasonic Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor Model EW‑BU60 is a device intended to
measure systolic and diastolic blood pressure and pulse rate of an adult individual by using a
pressurized cuff on the arm. The device is designed for people who have an intention of
measuring blood pressure value periodically by self measurement and not intended for
continuous BP measurement (e.g. 24h measurement).
In case the device repeatedly detects irregularities, please consult your doctor.
People with cardiac pacemakers, cardiac arrhythmia, vascular constriction, liver disorders or
diabetics should consult their doctor as different values may be measured in such cases. The
same also applies during pregnancy.
Contact health professionals if prehypertensive or hypertensive values are indicated.
Français
L’appareil de mesure de la tension artérielle au bras Panasonic de référence EW‑BU60 est
un modèle qui vise à mesurer la pression artérielle systolique et diastolique ainsi que la
valeur du pouls d’un individu adulte, en enfilant un brassard section de mesure sur le bras.
L’appareil est uniquement conçu pour un individu adulte qui a l’intention de prendre luimême son pouls de manière ponctuelle. L’appareil ne convient donc pas à une prise de
pouls continue (par exemple une prise de mesures pendant 24 heures).
Au cas où l’appareil détecterait un pouls irrégulier, veuillez consulter votre médecin.
Les personnes dotées d’un stimulateur cardiaque ou souffrant d’arythmie cardiaque, de
constriction vasculaire, de troubles du foie ou de diabète doivent consulter leur médecin car
des valeurs différentes peuvent être mesurées dans de tels cas. Il en va de même pour les
femmes enceintes.
Contactez des spécialistes de la santé si des valeurs préhypertensives ou hypertensives
sont indiquées.

Il misuratore di pressione sanguigna da braccio Panasonic modello EW‑BU60 è un
dispositivo studiato per misurare la pressione sanguigna sistolica e diastolica e la frequenza
del polso di un individuo adulto attraverso un bracciale a pressione sul braccio. Il dispositivo
è studiato esclusivamente per l’uso da parte di un adulto per l’automisurazione periodica
della pressione sanguigna e non deve essere utilizzato per la misurazione continua (ad es.
misurazione per 24 ore).
Se si riscontrano delle irregolarità, rivolgersi al proprio medico.
Gli individui portatori di pacemaker cardiaci o che soffrono di aritmia cardiaca, costrizione
vascolare, disturbi al fegato o diabete devono consultare il proprio medico poiché in tali casi i
valori misurati potrebbero differire. La stessa indicazione vale per le donne in gravidanza.
Se si riscontrano valori che indicano pre-ipertensione o ipertensione, rivolgersi a uno
specialista.

Panasonic improves blood pressure assessment
Dear customer, congratulation on the purchase of this Panasonic blood pressure monitor.
Since 1992, Panasonic has been providing blood pressure measuring devices to our
customers in Europe. The product you have purchased has passed our strict quality
control, and shall help you manage your daily blood pressure.
We wish you all the best for your health.
Thanks to modern medical technology measuring blood pressure has now become
uncomplicated. The user-friendliness makes measuring a lot easier, but very often a
mistake can occur when assessing the measured values. In the majority of cases it is not the
whole blood pressure picture that is taken into account but only a single measurement. The
result of this is that more than 70 % of all hypertension sufferers are insufficiently treated or
not treated at all (Source: World Health Organisation (WHO)).
Now Panasonic revolutionizes the treatment of high blood pressure.
SYS

DIA
Blood pressure is not a fixed parameter!
The blood pressure fluctuations of this example of a day profile show why a single value is
not suitable for diagnosis and therapy.
For people with high blood pressure a fluctuation of up to 50 mmHg within the course
of a day can occur.

Points of interest and information concerning blood
pressure and high blood pressure
The treatment of high blood pressure is one of the most successful forms of treatment in
modern medicine. This applies not only when preventing complications due to high blood
pressure, but also with regard to treating damage following a stroke or heart attack.
Recent studies have proven beyond all doubt that:
1. high blood pressure can be successfully lowered in patients of every age and
2. blood pressure should be stabilized at a low level.
The findings of major recent studies have made it necessary to adjust the formerly
acceptable limits (the World Health Organization (WHO), 1999). In other words, the
traditional limit of 160/95 mmHg as the borderline between normal and high blood pressure
has now been reduced. Consequently, the normal values have been “lowered” by WHO, the
German Hypertension Society and the American Hypertension Committee.
Upper value (SYS.)
Lower value (DIA.)
140 mmHg
90 mmHg
Blood pressure exceeding both or either of
these limits is considered hypertension.
The values should be confirmed by
repeated measurements.
A pathologically high blood pressure is now
defined as follows:
Systolic value of 140 mmHg or more and/or
a diastolic value of 90 mmHg or more–
provided that these values are repeatedly
obtained under standard conditions, i.e. at
rest (measured at three different times on
two different days).
This definition applies regardless of age. What formerly constituted a borderline area with
systolic values between 140 and 159 mmHg and diastolic values between 90 and 94 mmHg
is no longer considered to be a “grey area”, but is quite clearly classed as high blood
pressure. This consequently means that medical treatment is required for blood pressure
values in excess of 140/90 mmHg.

Wrapping the cuff
1. Remove the cuff from the hook.
2. Insert the plug into the socket all the way in.
3. Tuck the arm through the cuff.
• Hold on to the cuff by placing your thumb on the grip
of the guide plate.
<When wrapping around left arm>
4. Wrap the cuff aligning the guide plate to the line
extended from the middle finger with palm facing
up.
• Wrap the cuff on bare skin.
• Set apart 2 to 3 cm from the elbow joint.
• Wrap the cuff with a gap of 1 or 2 fingers.
Be careful that the cuff is not too tight.
• Press the tape fastener down well to fasten the cuff.
5. When the tube is pointing toward the shoulder,
rotate the tube so it will be pointing toward the
elbow.
Approximately 2 to 3 cm
• Be sure to fix the tube to lie straight using the tube
from inside of elbow
fastener.
The cuff can be used on either upper arm.
<When wrapping
around right arm>
Shoulder
Elbow
However, the difference in blood pressure between left
and right arm may be around 10 mmHg. Be sure to
always use the same arm. It is recommended to use
the arm with the higher blood pressure.
English
en10
Getting into the measurement position
Sit quietly and relax while taking measurements.
Take a measurement on a desk that will bring the
cuff to the height of the heart.
*Differences in height will cause differences in blood
pressure values.
1. Place the elbow on the table or on something similar.
2. Align the height of the cuff and the heart.
3. Relax with your palm facing up.
Use the same upper arm with the same posture at the same time every day.
We recommend three measurements a day.
First ........ Upon Waking (Because, with almost no influence from body movement, the
blood pressure is closest to that at night.)
Second.... Before Lunch (Because, with no influence from the meal, it provides blood
pressure values close to the highest of the day.)
Third........ At Bedtime (So as to obtain data close to your average blood pressure values
during the day.)
This way, by taking measurements morning, noon and night, you can use the unit to learn
the patterns of and monitor your blood pressure.
In the following situations, accurate measurements cannot be taken.
• Within 1 hour after eating or drinking alcohol
• Immediately after drinking coffee or tea, or smoking
• In a moving vehicle
• Immediately after exercising or taking a bath
(Wait at least 20 minutes and take a measurement while staying quiet.)
• In cold places
(Take measurements at room temperatures around 20 °C.)
• When you need to urinate
(Wait several minutes after urinating before taking measurements.)
Be sure to follow the following points for accurate measurements:
• Do not move your body, arm, or fingertips.
• Do not touch the main unit or the cuff during measurement.
• Do not talk.
• Do not use a cellular phone near the main unit.
Not following these points may make it impossible to obtain accurate measurements.

2. After the measurement is completed, the unit will beep, and
the blood pressure value and pulse rate will be displayed.
• The cuff is depressurized automatically.
• If the measured value is in the high blood pressure region, the
values will flash for approximately 5 seconds.
• The
mark or
mark will display after flashing for
5 seconds when movement of the body or irregular pulses were
detected during the measurement. (See pages en17 and en18.)
• The “no.1” mark will be lit, and mark will flash.

Taking a Reading (continued)
Taking a measurement with manual pressurization
Take a measurement with manual pressurization if appropriate pressurization is not
possible after repeated pressurization.
1. With the unit turned off, press the Off/On Start
button and hold it to pressurize the cuff to 30–40
mmHg higher value than the expected systolic blood
pressure.
• The pressurization value on the display will increase
from 0 mmHg while holding down the Off/On Start
button.
• It can be pressurized up to 280 mmHg.
CAUTION:
It may cause temporarily internal bleeding when
pressurized more than necessary.
Value 30–40 mmHg higher than
expected systolic blood pressure
2. Release the Off/On Start button.
When an Error Occurs During Measurement
A
will appear on the display to indicate that measurement was
unsuccessful and should be performed again.
Before performing another measurement, always press the Off/On Start button to turn off
the unit and make sure to allow a rest period of 4 to 5 minutes before starting again.
Advice:
In general, blood pressure measurements are lower for the second measurement
because you are less nervous and are more tranquil.
For people who easily get tense, measuring twice each time is very effective.
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.

Reading the blood pressure display
Whether the systolic and diastolic blood pressure values are in the high blood pressure
region or normal blood pressure region are judged based on the WHO/ISH (World Health
Organization/International Society of Hypertension) blood pressure classifications, and the
results are indicated by flashing the measurement value.

Comparing AM and PM Average Systolic Blood Pressure
Average AM and PM systolic blood pressure is displayed in order to allow you to compare
readings from both time periods.
Use of the AM and PM average systolic blood pressure comparison function can aid in the
detection of a blood pressure pattern known as “early morning surge” in which blood
pressure rises rapidly in the morning.
It cannot compare correctly if the wrong date and time are set.
When the unit is turned off, or when the date and time are displayed, readings can be
recalled after being saved.

Q & A
Q 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.
1 Is the cuff wrapped firmly?
• Make sure that the cuff is not wrapped too loosely or too tightly.
• Is the cuff wrapped around the upper arm? Make sure it is not partly covering the
elbow.
See page en10 for how to wrap the cuff correctly.
2 Were you worried or upset during measurements?
Before taking measurements, take 2 or 3 deep breaths and relax, so that your blood
pressure stabilizes.

on the cuff.
Therefore, it may not indicate motions (bending an arm slightly, etc.) that do not affect the
cuff.
If you are concerned about the result, retry the measurement.
Q Since the
mark was displayed, I retried the measurement by setting my arm
in the proper position. But the indicated value is still higher than usual.
A The
mark is just a guide for the proper measurement method.
If you correct your posture when the
mark is displayed but the measured value is
still higher or lower than usual, retry the measurement.
The following causes are suspected.
• Did you measure properly (in proper posture)?
Measure as indicated on pages en10–en11.
• Measured immediately after smoking.
• Measured when irritated or emotional.
• Measured in cold environments.
• For persons who have a physical constitution with less fluctuation in the pulse rate.
• If you are concerned about the results, retry the measurement after staying quiet for
4 to 5 minutes.
Q When should I measure my blood pressure?
A We recommend three measurements a day.
First ........ Upon Waking (Because, with almost no influence from body movement, the
blood pressure is closest to that at night.)
Second.... Before Lunch (Because, with no influence from the meal, it provides blood
pressure values close to the highest of the day.)
Third........ At Bedtime (So as to obtain data close to your average blood pressure values
during the day.)
This way, by taking measurements morning, noon and night, you can use the unit to
learn the patterns of and monitor your blood pressure.
• Use of the AM and PM average systolic blood pressure comparison function can aid in
the detection of a blood pressure pattern known as “early morning surge” in which
blood pressure rises rapidly in the morning. (See page en19.)

Field strength from fixed RF transmitters, as determined by an
electromagnetic site survey,a should be less than the compliance
level in each frequency range.b
Interference may occur in the vicinity of equipment
marked with the following symbol:
NOTE 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by
absorption and reflection from structures, objects and people.
a Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land
mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically
with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic
site survey should be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the model EW-BU60
is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the model EW-BU60 should be observed to verify
normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as
reorienting or relocating the model EW-BU60.
b Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.
