Introduction
Thank you for purchasing the OMRON BP7900 Blood Pressure Monitor + EKG.
This monitor has 2 main features; a blood pressure measurement and an electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) recording.
There are 3 ways to use this monitor: measuring blood pressure only; EKG only; blood pressure and EKG simultaneously.
Visit the “Support” section in the “OMRON connect US/CAN” app for additional information about using the app.
Blood pressure measurement
This monitor uses the oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement. This means this monitor detects your blood
movement through your brachial artery and converts the movements into a digital reading.
Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) recording
This model also has a clinical-quality EKG recorder which allows users to record and display EKGs on their smartphones with
the “OMRON connect US/CAN” app.
The “OMRON connect US/CAN” app also provides instant analysis of the recorded EKG to evaluate whether the heart rhythm
is normal or if possible atrial fibrillation, bradycardia and tachycardia are detected.
EKG software and services powered by AliveCor

Warning
• NEVER diagnose or treat yourself based on your blood pressure readings and/or EKG recordings. ALWAYS consult with your physician.

1. Know Your Monitor
1.5 Reading Your EKG Result
When the EKG recording is finished, the results are displayed on the downloaded “OMRON connect US/CAN” app as:
Possible Atrial Fibrillation (or AFib), Bradycardia, Tachycardia, Normal, Unreadable or Unclassified.
The detectors of EKG have been developed and tested on Lead I recordings only.
Note
• You must download and follow up instructions for setting up the app.
Atrial Fibrillation detector
The Atrial Fibrillation detector detects possible atrial fibrillation in an EKG tracing. After you record an EKG, if possible
atrial fibrillation is detected you will be notified as Possible Atrial Fibrillation (or AFib) within the app. This finding is not a
diagnosis, it is only a potential finding for the recorded EKG. You should contact your physician to review any EKG
recording in which possible atrial fibrillation was detected. If you are experiencing any symptoms or concerns contact a
medical professional.
Atrial fibrillation means the most common type of non-sinus tachyarrhythmia. In atrial fibrillation, disorganized electrical
impulses that originate in the atria and pulmonary veins initiate the electrical activity in the conduction system of the
heart. This causes what are commonly termed as “irregularly irregular” heart beats.
When a heart is in atrial fibrillation, its two upper chambers, the right and left atria, essentially quiver instead of beating
efficiently.
This does not allow for complete emptying of the atria and thus blood may become stagnant and create blood clots.
This can lead to major health problems, including strokes, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), and pulmonary emboli
(PEs); depending which chamber of the heart has the blood clot in it.
Approximately 15 percent of strokes occur in people with atrial fibrillation. As age increases in a population, so too does
the incidence of atrial fibrillation, which peaks at about 3-5 % in people over the age of 65.
The most common presenting symptoms of atrial fibrillation are palpitations, dizziness, fast heart rate, irregularly irregular
rhythm, an abnormal heart sound (S1), chest pain, chronic shortness of breath, abnormal jugular venous pressure,
13
1. Know Your Monitor
fatigue, and impaired exercise tolerance. Other symptoms related to TIAs and strokes may be the initial symptoms of
atrial fibrillation.
Some of the most common causes of atrial fibrillation are long-standing hypertension, congestive heart disease, cardiac
valvular lesions, myocardial infarctions, history of coronary artery bypass grafts, hyperthyroidism, alcohol abuse,
smoking, diabetes mellitus, and electrolyte imbalances.
Bradycardia detector
Bradycardia detector detects bradycardia, in an EKG tracing.
After you record an EKG, if bradycardia is detected you will be notified as Bradycardia within the app.
Bradycardia means a type of arrhythmia due to slower heart rate (40-50 beats per minute). The app analyzes EKGs to
detect normal sinus rhythm without major abnormalities between 40-50 beats per minute.
Tachycardia detector
Tachycardia detector detects tachycardia, in an EKG tracing.
After you record an EKG, if tachycardia is detected you will be notified as Tachycardia within the app.
Tachycardia means a type of arrhythmia due to faster heart rate (100-140 beats per minute). The app detects normal
sinus rhythm without major abnormalities at these heart rates.
Normal detector
Normal detector notifies you as Normal within the app, when a EKG recording is normal.
14
Normal means that the heart rate is between 50 and 100 beats per minute, there are no or very few abnormal beats, and
the shape, timing and duration of each beat is considered normal sinus rhythm. It is important to remember that there is
a wide range of normal variability among different individuals. Changes in the shape or timing of an EKG might be normal
for a single individual, but since the apps are used by a large and diverse population, the Normal detector has been
designed to be conservative with what it detects as normal.
1. Know Your Monitor
If you have been diagnosed with a condition that affects the shape of your EKG (e.g., intraventricular conduction delay,
left or right bundle branch block, Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, etc.), experience a large number of premature
ventricular or atrial contractions (PVC and PAC), are experiencing an arrhythmia, or took a poor-quality recording it is
unlikely that you will be notified that your EKG is normal.
It is also important to note that the Normal detector looks at the entire signal before determining if it can be declared to be
normal. If you experience a small number of PACs or PVCs in a recording of otherwise normal beats in normal rhythm,
the Normal detector will likely declare that EKG recording to be normal.
The Normal detector will not declare an EKG outside the heart rate of 50-100 beats per minute as normal, even if the
EKG has normal sinus rhythm. As a result, if you typically get normal results but take an EKG immediately after any
physical activity that raises your heart rate above 100 beats per minute, you may not get a normal result.
Unreadable detector
The Unreadable detector determines whether a recording can be accurately interpreted or not. After recording an EKG, if
interference is detected you will be notified within the app that your recording has “No analysis” and given some
suggestions for acquiring good quality EKG recording. You subsequently have the option to save the recording, or try
again. If the recording can be analyzed, the Atrial Fibrillation, Bradycardia, Tachycardia and Normal detectors will run on
the EKG and inform you as described previous pages.
Unclassified
The app may display the Unclassified message for an EKG recording that was not detected as Normal, nor as Possible
Atrial Fibrillation, nor as Bradycardia, nor as Tachycardia, and not as Unreadable.
Unclassified means the result is not Normal, nor Possible Atrial Fibrillation, nor Bradycardia, nor Tachycardia and not
Unreadable.
Unclassified result may be normal rhythms, such as when your heart rate is higher than 100 beats per minute after
physical activity, or abnormal rhythms; if you consistently get unclassified results, you may want to share your these EKG
recordings with your physician. You can send the recordings by email.
15
1. Know Your Monitor
Note
• Other than Possible Atrial Fibrillation, Bradycardia, Tachycardia, Normal, Unclassified and Unreadable, EKG error messages may appear on
the app due to some reasons such as a shortage of recording time, too noisy to interpret or etc. If it appears, follow the suggestions on the
app.
Caution
• After EKG analysis, the app may incorrectly identify ventricular flutter, ventricular bigeminy, and ventricular rigeminy heart conditions as
unreadable. Consult with your physician.
• OMRON does not guarantee that you are not experiencing an arrhythmia or other health conditions when labeling an EKG as normal.
You should notify your physician for possible changes in your health.
• If the “OMRON connect US/CAN” app detects possible atrial fibrillation in an EKG, consult with your physician before making any medical
decision, including altering your use of any drug or treatment.
• The atrial fibrillation detector evaluates for possible atrial fibrillation ONLY. It will NOT detect other potentially life threatening arrhythmias,
and it is possible that other cardiac arrhythmias may be present.
• The atrial fibrillation detector ONLY evaluates for possible atrial fibrillation after you have recorded an EKG. It does NOT continuously

Free medical interpretation of your first EKG recording
A U.S. board-certified cardiologist will automatically review your first EKG recording for free and will provide a medical
interpretation within 24 hours. Due to FDA regulations, the heart rhythm for your first recording will not be visible on your
smartphone screen and you will not be able to record any additional EKGs while the cardiologist is preparing your report. After
you receive your report notification by email, you will be able to view and record your further EKGs.
Referral code (A 12-character code from your physician or a cardiac monitoring service)
This monitor enables users to connect to their physicians with a referral code. If you were prescribed the monitor by your
physicians or through cardiac monitoring service, you should have received a 12-character referral code. With the code you
can create an account, and you can view from your first EKG.
When paired, the user’s EKG recordings are available to be viewed by their physicians.
Note
• Users without a referral code may send their EKG recordings to their physician by emailing the PDF from the “OMRON connect US/CAN”
app on the smartphone.

2. Preparation
2.3 Blood Pressure Measurement/EKG Recording Tips
Blood pressure measurement tips to help ensure an accurate reading:
• Stress raises blood pressure. Avoid taking measurements during stressful times.
• Measurements should be taken in a quiet place.
• It is important to take measurements at the same times each day. Taking measurements in the morning and in the
evening is recommended.
• Remember to have a record of your blood pressure and pulse readings for your physician. A single measurement does
not provide an accurate indication of your true blood pressure. You need to take and record several readings over a
period of time.
Caution
• Avoid bathing, drinking alcohol or caffeine, smoking, exercising and eating for at least 30 minutes before taking a blood pressure
measurement.
• Rest for at least 5 minutes before taking a blood pressure measurement.
EKG recording tips to help ensure an accurate recording:
• Clean the 4 electrodes with alcohol-based sanitizer. Refer to sub-section 10.3.
• Disconnect headphones, charger cables, or any other connected devices from your smartphone.
• We recommend taking resting heart rate EKGs when you first rise in the morning; the time of day when the body is most
rested.

• The following steps are for applying the arm cuff to your left arm. When you take a measurement on your right arm, follow the cuff wrap
instructions for a right arm use mentioned under “Note” located at the end of this sub-section.
• The blood pressure can differ between the right arm and the left arm, and the measured blood pressure readings can be different. OMRON
recommends to always use the same arm for measurement. If the blood pressure readings between both arms differ substantially, check
with your physician to determine as to which arm to use for your measurements.
Caution
• Remove tight-fitting and thick clothing from your arm while taking a measurement.
1. Plug the arm cuff into your monitor by inserting
the air plug into the air jack securely until it
clicks.

Try the following tips for acquiring the best quality EKG recording:
• Clean the electrodes of the monitor with an alcohol-based sanitizer.
• If hands are very dry, use a water-based lotion before recording.
• Relax both arms and hands to reduce muscle noise. Both arms should be resting comfortably on a table.
• Ensure that your smartphone is not charging/syncing and you are not using headphones or any other
connected devices with your smartphone during the EKG recording.
• Make sure that both the smartphone and the user remain still during EKG recordings. Movement during
recordings will cause noise in the tracing.
The heads up display (HUD) symbol can sometimes be partially obstructed when you rotate your smartphone
while it’s busy. This isn’t a concern; the HUD symbol is just letting you know that the app is working. This doesn’t
impact your EKG recording or any of your information.
Large amounts of noise/artifact can be seen for the first few milliseconds of an EKG recording when the
enhanced filter is looking for your heartbeat. This is very rare and only lasts until your first heartbeat is seen in
the app; this doesn’t affect the rest of your EKG recording.
Follow the instructions shown in the smartphone, or visit the “Support” section in the “OMRON connect US/CAN”
app for further help.
If the problem still persists, contact customer service. Refer to section 14.
