Healthy Living
Purchasing this blood pressure monitor is your first step in
living a healthier life, but it is only the beginning. It is
also important to:
STAY ACTIVE - Start out by taking just a short
walk each day. Over time you'll begin to feel more energetic. Walking is a fun, easy way to help lose weight and
also aids in building stronger bones and a healthier heart!
EAT HEALTHY - Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet is a great way to start. Also, look at
incorporating more whole grains, fish and low fat dairy
products and keep a check on your sodium intake. If
you're using a blood pressure monitor, you should already
be aware of how sodium can affect your blood pressure.
You may want to explore the potential benefits of certain
botanicals such as onion and garlic. As always, consult
your physician before beginning any dietary changes.

What is considered Normal Blood Pressure?
The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on

Commonly Asked Questions About Blood Pressure
Commonly Asked Questions About
Blood Pressure
Why Does My Blood Pressure Fluctuate?
Blood pressure changes with every beat of the heart and
is in constant fluctuation throughout the day. In addition
to natural changes, other factors that may affect blood
pressure are:
• Temperature
(too hot or cold)
• Humidity
• Restlessness
• Lack of sleep
• Physical exercise
• Constipation
• Your physical
• Stress
Be sure to speak with your healthcare professional to
determine what is affecting your blood pressure.
How Do I Know If I Have High Blood Pressure?
People have the misconception that they can "feel" their
blood pressure rise. In reality it is nearly impossible to tell
if your pressure is elevated without having it checked.
This is why hypertension has been named "the silent
killer". Start monitoring your blood pressure today and
discuss the results with your healthcare professional.
Commonly Asked Questions About Blood Pressure
Commonly Asked Questions About
Blood Pressure
Why Is It Important To Control My Blood Pressure?
Left uncontrolled hypertension can place an incredible
amount of stress on your heart and arteries. They are
both forced to work harder to keep blood flowing through
your body. Over time this stress may result in health related problems including enlargement of the heart, loss of
artery elasticity, heart disease, stroke and death. Making
simple lifestyle changes now may help you stay healthy in
the future.
Intended Use
Measurement Method
Healthy Living monitors measure blood pressure and
pulse rate by using an oscillometric method, meaning the
fluctuations in pressure are measured. Once the cuff is
wrapped around the wrist, the monitor is turned on and
the cuff is automatically inflated. The inflation of the cuff
creates pressure around the arteries inside the wrist.
Within the cuff is a gauge which senses the fluctuations
(oscillations) in pressure. The fluctuations measured are
the arteries contracting with each heart beat as a result of
the pressure the cuff has placed on the wrist. The monitor
measures these contractions and converts the information
to a digital value. That is the result displayed on the monitor screen. Once the measurement is complete the cuff
will automatically deflate.
Healthy Living blood pressure monitors are designed for
home use. They are noninvasive; no part enters your body,
and provide systolic, diastolic and pulse rate measurements.
These monitors are recommended for use by people over 18
years of age and are not suitable for clinical use.

Follow your health care provider's advice on how and
when to take your blood pressure. Here are some important hints on what to do before taking a measurement:
* Sit quietly for about 10 minutes. This allows your body
to return to its normal resting state.
* Take your blood pressure in a room temperature
environment, extreme temperatures may affect the
* Wait 30-45 minutes after smoking or consuming
caffeinated beverages.
Programming Time and Date
Important Reminders
Important Reminders
While taking a measurement:
* Sit still and quietly. Talking or moving may elevate
* For consistency, it is a good idea to measure your blood
pressure around the same time each day and using the
same wrist. If possible, we suggest using the left.
* When taking multiple measurements right after each
other, make sure you have allowed at least 10 minutes
between measurements. This allows your blood vessels
to return to their normal state.
* Sit with your legs uncrossed and feet flat on the floor.
Do not touch the cuff or monitor while the measurement
is being taken.
* Keep your wrist at level with your heart.
* Relax.
Important Reminders
Applying the Cuff to Your Wrist
* The cuff needs to be wrapped around
your bare wrist. Make sure to rollup
your sleeve or remove any clothing or
jewelry that is covering your wrist. If
rolling up a sleeve, make sure this
does not constrict blood circulation in
your arm.
* Wrap the cuff around your wrist
(preferably the left) making sure it is
secure, but not too tight. The
monitor should be facing up at you.
* Place your arm on a table with your
palm facing up. It is important for
the wrist cuff to be at the same level
as your heart. You can rest your
wrist on the enclosed storage case.
Applying the Cuff to Your Wrist
Taking a Blood Pressure
* Once the cuff is properly around your wrist and you are
seated with your feet flat on the floor, you are ready to
take your measurement.
* Press "SET" button to select a particular memory zone
(no.1 to no.3).
* See "3 Zones of 30 Memory" for detailed instructions on
setting/using memory.
* Press the "START/STOP" button to begin measuring. You
will feel the cuff get tighter, this is normal. The cuff will
automatically inflate to the level that is right for you.
The cuff should not inflate to the point of discomfort, if
this happens the cuffed is wrapped to tightly. Press the
"START/STOP" button to stop the measurement and
rewrap the cuff leaving more room between your wrist
and the cuff.
* As the monitor determines your blood pressure, numbers
will appear and change on the display screen until your
reading is complete.
Taking a Blood Pressure Measurement
Taking a Blood Pressure
* When your measurement is complete the monitor will
automatically deflate by releasing the air in the cuff.
* The process should take less than a minute and once the
measurement is complete your blood pressure and pulse
rate will be displayed. The monitor will turn itself off
approximately 1 minute after completing a reading.
NOTE: Blood pressure constantly changes during the course
of a day. Occasionally high or low readings do not necessarily
mean you are ill or that the monitor is malfunctioning. If you
experience abnormal measurements it is important to speak
with your doctor to learn what your normal blood pressure is.
When you take a measurement the monitor will automatically
store it as number 1. As you continue to take measurement
the monitor will "push" the previous measurement back one
space. The most recent measurement will always be 1, the
measurement before that will be 2 and so on. To view measurements in Memory, press the "MEMORY" button for the last
reading and continue to press for each previous reading.
