HOW UB-511 WORKS
LifeSource™ Blood Pressure Monitors are easy to use, accurate
and display clear digital measurements. Our technology is based
on the “oscillometric method”. The term “oscillation” refers to the
measure of vibrations caused by the arterial pulse and is a noninvasive method to determine blood pressure.
Our monitors examine the pulsatile pressure generated by the
arterial wall as it expands and contracts with each heartbeat
against the monitor’s cuff. This monitor measures your blood
pressure while the cuff is inflating.
BEFORE YOU START
The UB-511 provides accurate readings on wrists with a circumference between 5.3" and 8.5" (13.5 cm and 21.5 cm).
The unit requires two “AAA” (1.5 volt) batteries to operate. To
install batteries (or to replace when “Low Battery” symbol
appears), proceed as follows:
1. Slide the battery cover as shown to remove
from the device.
2. Insert batteries into designated areas
ensuring a correct match with positive (+)
and negative (-) terminals.
3. Return battery cover by sliding back on to
monitoring device.

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Tips for Blood Pressure Monitoring:
☞ Relax for 5 to 10 minutes prior to measurement
☞ Remove watch, jewelry or tight-fitting garments
☞ Use left wrist unless otherwise recommended by physician
Now you are ready to follow these simple steps:
1. Sit comfortably in a chair near a flat surface.
2. With palm facing upward, attach monitor to
left wrist and fasten securely. The top edge of
the cuff should align with the crease of your
wrist.
3. Position your wrist so it is level with your
heart, using an arm rest if needed.
Positioning of the wrist at heart level is
critical for accurate measurement.
4. Press the START button. The average readings from blood
pressure measurements stored in memory will appear for a few
seconds and the number of measurements stored in memory
will flash two times (e.g. A04). The cuff will then begin to
inflate. It is normal for the cuff to feel very tight.
NOTE: To stop inflation at any time, press START
5. Remain still and refrain from talking or moving during reading.

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
6. As the cuff is inflating, the ❤ (heart symbol) will appear to
indicate that the measurement is in progress. The monitor
measures your blood pressure while the cuff is inflating, so
remain still. Once the pulse is detected, the symbol will flash
with each pulse beat.
7. When measurement is complete, the
systolic and diastolic pressure and pulse
rate readings are displayed. The cuff will
automatically deflate completely,
expelling all remaining air.
8. Press START button once to turn off power. The device has an
automatic power-down feature which turns off power automatically one minute after measurement is obtained.
For the most useful blood pressure history, we recommend that
you record the date and time after each measurement. The most
accurate history relies not on a single or sporadic readings, but
on a consistent monitoring pattern over time.
NOTE: If you wish to take your blood pressure measurement
again, relax and wait 5-10 minutes to enable the flow of blood
in the arm to return to normal.
NOTE: If you have poor blood circulation in winter (especially
when your hands and wrists are cold), you may not get a blood
pressure measurement.
WHAT IS AN IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT?
The UB-511 Blood Pressure Monitor provides a blood pressure and
pulse rate measurement even when an irregular heartbeat occurs.
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. If an irregular heartbeat
occurs during a reading, this symbol will appear
.
NOTE: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this
symbol frequently.
ABOUT AVERAGE READING
The UB-511 provides an average blood pressure
reading based on the total measurements stored in
memory. When taking a measurement, the average
blood pressure reading will appear and the number
of measurements stored in memory will flash two
times before the cuff begins to inflate. The average
blood pressure reading will also appear briefly when
you recall the measurements stored in memory.

ABOUT MEMORY
The UB-511 automatically stores up to 30 blood pressure and
pulse measurements in its memory. Measurements stored in memory are assigned an index number in the order of the newest to the
oldest. The oldest reading displays as "n01".
To retrieve readings, follow these simple steps:
1. When the display screen is blank, press and hold the START
button. While holding down the START button, you will see
the average reading displayed first. You will then see the
memory index number (e.g. n03) of the most recent reading
followed by the measurement. Release the START button
when you see the memory index number.
2. The display will shut off automatically a few seconds after all
of the readings are displayed. To turn off the monitor at any
time, press the START button.
3. The display will shut off automatically a few seconds after the
readings are displayed.
ABOUT PRESSURE INDICATOR
The Pressure Indicator is located on the left side of the display
screen to tell you when the blood monitor is inflating the cuff.
The indicator consists of a scale with six levels and moves up
during inflation.

To clear the measurement history from memory, remove the batteries from the unit and then place the batteries back into the battery holder.
NOTE: If there are no measurements stored in memory, you will
see two 0s displayed vertically followed by a blinking "A00".
NOTE: The motor will inflate the cuff at a slow speed starting at
20mmHg to begin the blood pressure measurement process.
NOTE: Stored measurements will be lost if batteries become low
or are removed.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
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 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 to 10 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. In hypersensitive individuals, these variations
are even more pronounced. Normally, blood pressure rises during
work or play and falls to its lowest levels during sleep.
❤
Assessing High Blood Pressure
The following standards for assessing high blood pressure (without regard to age) have been established as a guideline.
BP Classification
Normal
Prehypertension
Stage 1 Hypertension
Stage 2 Hypertension
Systolic (mmHg) Diastolic (mmHg)
<120
120-139
140-159
≥160
and <80
or 80-89
or 90-99
or ≥100
SOURCE: The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on
Prevention, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure.
National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute - May 2003.
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. Those who fall within the
Prehypertensive range are more likely to develop hypertension in
the future.
Can Hypertension Be Controlled?
In many individuals, hypertension can be controlled by altering
lifestyle and minimizing 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.

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.” One way to determine whether this is the case for you is to take your home monitor to the doctor’s office and, before the doctor or nurse takes your
pressure, do it yourself on your home monitor and compare it to
your record of home readings.
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 pressure at
home.

EXAMPLE
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.
• Relax for 5 minutes before measurement.
• Sit still during measurement – no talking, eating or sudden
movements.
• Record your measurement in a logbook.
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.
