HOW UA-705 WORKS
LifeSource® blood pressure monitors are easy to use, accurate and digitally
display full measurement readouts. Our technology is based on the “oscillometric method” – a noninvasive blood pressure determination. The term
“oscillation” refers to any measure of vibrations caused by the arterial pulse.
Our monitor examines the pulsatile pressure generated by the arterial wall as
it expands and contracts against the cuff with each heartbeat.
The cuff is inflated until the artery is fully blocked. The inflation speed is
maximized and the pressure level is optimized by the device. The monitor
takes measurements while the cuff is both inflating and deflating. This results
in a faster measurement providing greater comfort to the user.
BEFORE YOU START
You must install 1 type AA (1.5 volt) battery and attach the cuff to the monitor
before using it (alkaline batteries recommended). To install battery (or replace
it if the "Low Battery" symbol appears on display), proceed as follows:
1. Remove battery cover by gently pushing
down on handle and pulling cover off
monitor.
2. Place the battery in compartment with
positive (+) and negative (–) terminals
matching those indicated in the compartment. Be sure battery makes contact with
compartment terminals.
3. Replace cover by sliding it into the compartment and gently pressing into place.
NOTE: Rechargeable batteries will not work with this monitor.

SELECTING THE CORRECT CUFF SIZE
Using the correct cuff size is important for an accurate reading. A cuff that is
too large will produce a reading that is lower than the correct blood pressure; a
cuff that is too small will produce a reading that is higher than the correct
blood pressure. With your arm hanging at the side of your body, measure the
circumference of your upper arm at the midpoint between the shoulder and
elbow.

NOTE: The LifeSource small cuff is not compatible with the UA-705 monitor.
Cuff Size Indicator On The Cuff
Our cuff has an indicator which tells you whether you are using the correct
cuff size or not. Place the cuff on your arm (see Page E-6 to learn how to put
the cuff on correctly) and if the Index Mark
points within the Proper Fit
Range, you are using the correct cuff size. If the Index points outside of the
Proper Fit Range, contact A&D Medical at 1-888-726-9966 (in Canada, call
Auto Control Medical at 1-800-461-0991) for more information on where to
obtain a cuff replacement.
NOTE: If the cuff size indicator falls on a borderline between two size categories, pick either one and make sure to use the same cuff size for each
measurement.

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
Tips for Blood Pressure Monitoring:
☞ Relax for about 5 minutes before measurement.
☞ Do not smoke or ingest caffeine at least 30 minutes prior to
measurement.
☞ Remove constricting clothing and place cuff on bare arm.
☞ Unless your physician recommends otherwise, use left arm to
measure pressure.
☞ Do not talk during measurement.
☞ Do not cross legs and keep you feet flat on floor during measurement.
Now you are ready. Follow these simple steps:
1. Sit comfortably with your left arm resting on a
Cuff
flat surface so that the center of your upper arm
is at the same height as your heart.
Tube
2. Lay left arm on the table, palm up and thread cuff end through metal
loop, smooth side against arm. Then position the tube off-center toward
the inner side of arm in line with the little finger.
3. Pull the end of the cuff to tighten it, fold back the extra
material, and fasten securely. The cuff should be snug but
not too tight. You should be able to insert two fingers
between the cuff and your arm.
IMPORTANT: Measure pressure at the same time
each day.
4. Confirm that the index
fit range.

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
5. Press the START button. Your average blood pressure reading will appear
with the number of measurements stored in memory (i.e. A25 = total of
25 measurements stored in memory) and a flashing symbol, indicating
that monitor is ready for measurement.
NOTE: If the
symbol is displayed, the
cuff has some air trapped in it. Press the
exhaust valve button until the
symbol
is displayed. You may have to press on
the cuff while holding the exhaust valve
to release all the air in the cuff.
6. When the
symbol is displayed, begin cuff inflation by squeezing the
inflator bulb repeatedly. It may take a few seconds for the symbol to
appear.
7. Stop squeezing the inflator bulb when
symbol disappears or until cuff
pressure reaches about 30 mmHg to 40 mmHg above expected systolic
pressure. If inflating to a level above your expected systolic pressure, we
recommend using the chart shown below to determine your inflation
level.
Usual Systolic

TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE
8. When the correct pressurization has been reached, the automatic
exhaust mechanism will gradually reduce the pressure in the cuff. Sit
quietly during measurement. The ❤ symbol will blink with your pulse
beat.
NOTE: Exhaust rate cannot be adjusted during measurement. If you wish
to stop inflation at any time, press the exhaust valve to release the pressure in the cuff.
9. After you see the measurement results displayed on the screen, press the
exhaust valve to release the excess air from the cuff. If you move your
arm before pressing the exhaust valve, the result on the screen will be
deleted. The monitor shuts off automatically in about 30 seconds. You
can also press the START button to shut off the monitor.
10. Remove cuff and make a note of your blood pressure and pulse rate on
the chart in the back of the manual, indicating date and time of measurement. Additional logbook charts can be downloaded and printed for free
at www.LifeSourceOnline.com or www.autocontrol.com.
We advise that you record the date and time after each measurement because
an accurate blood pressure history relies not on single or sporadic readings
but on a pattern over time.
NOTE: Allow at least 5 minutes between measurements on the same
person.

WHAT IS AN IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT
The UA-705 Blood Pressure Monitor provides a blood pressure and pulse rate
measurement even when an irregular heartbeat occurs. The Irregular
Heartbeat symbol
will appear in the display window in the event an
Irregular Heartbeat has occurred during measurement. 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.
NOTE: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this
symbol frequently.
ABOUT CUFF INFLATION METER
The Cuff Inflation Meter is located on the left side of the display screen to tell
you when the blood pressure monitor is inflating and deflating the cuff. The
Cuff Inflation Meter moves up during inflation and moves down during
deflation.

ABOUT AVERAGE READING
The UA-705 provides an average blood pressure reading based
on the total measurements stored in memory. the start button
is pushed, the average blood pressure reading will appear and
the number of measurements stored in memory will flash
several times before the monitor is ready for inflation.
ABOUT PRESSURE RATING INDICATOR™
The Pressure Rating Indicator™ is a feature which provides a snapshot of your blood pressure classification
based on your measurements. This will let you quickly
know what your blood pressure readings mean. Each
segment of the bar indicator corresponds to the Seventh
Report of the Joint National Committee (JNC7) on
Prevention, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood
Pressure from the National Heart, Lung and Blood
Institute - May 2003. For a more detailed look at this
blood pressure classification, please refer to “Assessing
High Blood Pressure” on page E-13.
:The indicator displays a segment, based on the current measurement,
corresponding to the JNC7 Classification.
NOTE: Due to other risk factors (e.g. diabetes, obesity, smoking, etc.) in
addition to your blood pressure measurement, the Pressure Rating Indicator
is approximate. Please consult with your physician for interpretation and
diagnosis of your blood pressure measurements.
NOTE: Residents outside of the United States (e.g.. Canada and Mexico)
should refer to the WHO Classification Table on page E-13 for assessment
of their blood pressure measurement.
