Panasonic Oscillometric Automatic Arm Blood Pressure Monitor Model EW-BU35 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 not intended for
use on neonatal, infants and children. The device is designed for home use only, not
for ambulatory measurement (measurement recorded continuously during the day).
Specifications of this device are listed in page 21.
English
BU35.indb
BEFORE USE
Blood pressure measurements determined with this device are equivalent to those
obtained by a trained observer using the cuff/stethoscope auscultation method,
within the limits prescribed by the American National Standard, Manual, Electronic or
automated sphygmomanometers.
If you suffer from disorder of heart rhythm, known as arrhythmia only use this blood
pressure monitor in consultation with your doctor. In certain cases oscillometric
measurement method can produce incorrect readings.
Flashing System for hypertensive readings are based on blood pressure values
classified in the paper: “JNC 7 Express; The Seventh Report of the Joint National
Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood
Pressure; U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES; National Institute
of Health; National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; National High Blood Pressure
Education Program; NIH Publication No. 03-5233; May 2003.” The display values are
generally known, but not proven, to be an indicator of your blood pressure.
The EW-BU35 is not intended to be used as a diagnostic device. Contact your
physician if prehypertensive or hypertensive values are indicated.

Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the Panasonic Automatic Arm Blood Pressure Monitor EW-BU35.
English
BU35.indb
BEFORE USE
Measuring your own blood pressure is an important way of monitoring your health. High
blood pressure (hypertension) is a major health problem which can be treated effectively
once detected. Measuring your blood pressure between doctor visits on a regular basis
in the comfort of your home, and keeping a record of the measurements, will help you
monitor any significant changes in your blood pressure. Keeping an accurate record of
your blood pressure will help your doctor diagnose and possibly prevent any health
problems in the future.
Basics of Blood Pressure
Your heart acts like a pump, sending blood surging through your blood vessels each
time it contracts. Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by blood pumped from the
heart on the walls of blood vessels. Systolic pressure is the pressure exerted when the
heart contracts and pumps blood into the arteries. Diastolic pressure is the pressure
exerted when the heart expands, or relaxes. When you or your doctor take your blood
pressure, both your systolic and diastolic pressures are measured. If your blood pressure
measurement is 120 mmHg over 80 mmHg (120/80), for example, your systolic pressure
is 120 mmHg while your diastolic pressure is 80 mmHg.
Important Instructions Before Use
111 Do not confuse self-monitoring with self-diagnosis. Blood pressure measurements
should only be interpreted by a health care professional who is familiar with your
medical history.
222 If you are taking medication, consult with your physician to determine the most
appropriate time to measure your blood pressure. NEVER change a prescribed
medication without first consulting with your physician.
333 Blood pressure can vary based on many factors, including age, gender, weight and
physical condition. In general, a person’s blood pressure is lower during sleep and
higher when he or she is active. Blood pressure can change easily in response to
physiological changes. The setting in which a person’s blood pressure is measured
can also affect the results.
Having one’s blood pressure measured by a healthcare professional in a hospital
or clinic can cause nervousness and may result in a temporarily elevated reading.
Because blood pressure measurements taken in a clinical setting can vary
considerably from those taken at home, a person’s blood pressure should be
measured not only occasionally in the doctor’s office, but also on a regular basis at
home. Also, if you find that your blood pressure is lower at home, this is not unusual.
To accurately compare with your physician’s reading, take your Panasonic blood
pressure monitor to your doctor’s office and compare readings in this setting.
444 People suffering from cardiac arrhythmia, vascular constriction, liver disorders or
diabetes, people with cardiac pacemakers or a weak pulse, and women who are
pregnant should consult their physician before measuring their blood pressure
themselves. Different values may be obtained due to their condition.

555 Try to take your blood pressure measurements at the same time and under the same
conditions every day.
●● The ideal time to measure your blood pressure (to obtain your so-called “base
blood pressure”) is in the morning just after waking up, before having breakfast
and before any major activity or exercise. If this is not possible, however, try to take
measurements at a specified time prior to breakfast, and before you have become
active. You should relax for about 5 minutes before taking the measurement.
The following situations may cause substantial variations in blood pressure
readings and should therefore be avoided at least 30 minutes prior to taking your
blood pressure.
Blood pressure will be higher than usual:
- when you are excited or tense
- when you are taking a bath
- during exercising or soon after exercising
- when it is cold
- within one hour after eating
- after drinking coffee, tea or other beverages containing caffeine
- after smoking tobacco
- when your bladder is full
- when in a moving vehicle
Blood pressure will be lower than usual:
- after taking a bath
- after drinking alcohol

Getting into the measurement position
Sit quietly and relax while taking measurements.
Take a measurement while sitting at a desk and positioning the cuff at heart level
as shown in the image below.
** Differences in height will cause differences in measured blood pressure values.
English
BU35.indb
HOW TO USE
1.
Place the elbow on the table or on
something similar.
2.
3.
Align the height of the cuff to the heart.
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
movements, 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, measurements might be abnormally influenced.
●● 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 68 °F (20 °C).)
●● When you need to urinate (Wait several minutes after urinating before taking
measurements.)
Be sure to comply with the following points for accurate measurements. Not
following these points may make it impossible to obtain meaningful 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 devices emitting strong signals, such as cellular phones, near the main
unit. The measurement may not be performed correctly due to the signal and this
may lead to malfunctions.

About each indicators
English
BU35.indb
HOW TO USE
To perform a correct measurement, this unit provides a movement detection
function and an irregular pulse warning function. When the indicators appear, the
correct measurement might not have been obtained. If any indicator appears, it is
recommended to repeat the measurement. Stay calm and relax for four to five minutes,
before perfoming a new measurement.
** The "
" and "
" indicator will be recorded together with the measurement
value.
Movement detection function
The movement detection function is to indicate, with
, extra pressure on the cuff caused by movements
of the arm during the measurement. When movement is
detected and the measurement is completed, the indicator
is displayed after flashing for approx. 6 seconds.
If the movements exceed acceptable levels, no reliable
measurement can be performed and the error message "U
12" will be displayed.
Irregular pulse warning function
If the pulse rate varies by more than ±25 % from the
will
average while a measurement is being taken,
be displayed when the measurement is completed. The
indicator is displayed after flashing for approx. 6 seconds.
If the
indicator is displayed an irregular pulse rate is detected, which is not
necessarily caused by arrhythmia.
●● Don’t try to interpret readings or attempt to treat any condition yourself. Always
follow the guidance of a health professional.
●● However if this indicator continues to display, consult your physician.
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.

According to JNC 7 Classification, values consistently in excess of 140 mmHg (Sys.) and/
or 90 mmHg (Dia.) are considered to constitute high blood pressure.
Blood pressure readings will flash for

Q&A

BU35.indb
APPENDIX
Q
A
Why are the blood pressure values measured at home different from those measured at
the doctor’s office?
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 8 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.
When should I measure my blood pressure?
We recommend three measurements a day.
First ..........
Second ...
Third .........
Upon Waking (Because, with almost no influence from body movement, the
blood pressure is closest to that at night.)
Before Lunch (Because, with no influence from the meal, it provides blood
pressure values close to the highest of the day.)
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 "Comparing with Old Measurement" 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 18.)
