Health and Blood Pressure Values

Because of continuous aging of blood vessels, blood pressure of the human body tends to naturally increase from middle age onwards. Further causes for increased blood pressure include obesity, lack of exercise, cholesterol (LDL) adherence to blood vessels causing the vessels lose their elasticity and a variety of other medical problems. Higher blood pressure accelerates hardening of the arteries, making the body more susceptible to coronary heart disease and strokes. Blood pressure fluctuates constantly throughout our daily life and is an essential element for our daily health management. We follow routine blood pressure trends in order to optimize health.

What is Blood Pressure

Blood is pumped through your arteries by the beating

(contraction and expansion) of your heart. The pressure of the pumped-out blood is called the “blood pressure”. Blood pressure elevates with each beat of the heart. The pressure when the heart contracts is called the “systolic blood pressure” and the pressure when the heart relaxes is called the “diastolic pressure”. Systolic pressure is always higher than diastolic pressure.

Blood pressure is typically low in the morning and increases from the afternoon to the evening. It is lower in the summer and higher in the winter. Blood pressure naturally varies from time to time throughout the day. Many factors that may cause the blood pressure to fluctuate include: Breathing, Exercise, Mental stress, Smoking,

Eating, Concern, Environmental and/or temperature change, Time of day, Urination and bowel movements,

Conversation, Bathing, Drinking alcohol, Medication and

Physical activity.

4

Variations in Blood Pressure:

The variations in blood pressure over a whole day with measurement taken every five minutes as shown below. z

Classification of Blood Pressure by the WHO:

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the

Inter-national Society of Hypertension (ISH) developed the Blood Pressure Classification shown as below.

5

Important Information

z Blood pressure values measured at home tend to be lower than those measured in the hospital or physicians office. This is called “White Coat Syndrome” and is caused by the fact that you tend to be nervous when you have your blood pressure measured in the hospital , but you feel relaxed at home. It is important to know your stable normal blood pressure measured at home. z It is recommended for persons who have heart trouble, kidney trouble, hypertension, diabetes, arteriosclerosis or other problems related to the circulatory system, consult your physician to ensure that the blood pressure monitor is being used properly so that blood pressure monitor accurately reflects your actual blood pressure. z Blood pressure can fluctuate by 30 to 50 mmHg without being noticed. These changes can be influenced by whether you are nervous or relaxed, exercise or the environment (temperature or mental state). z The device may show some reading errors in the presence of common arrhythmia such as arterial or ventricular premature beats or atrial fibrillation.

Precautions

z This unit will not serve as a cure for any symptoms of cardiovascular disease or other diseases. The data measured is only for reference. Always consult your physician if any abnormal results are measured. z Always follow the operation procedures described in the manual to ensure that you measure your correct blood pressure. z Be sure to store this manual for future reference.

6

z Diseases such as diabetes and hyperlipidemia accelerate hardening of the arteries. If such conditions continue, there is an increased danger of stroke, coronary infarction, arterial stenosis and disorders of the peripheral blood circulation. In such cases, there can be a large difference between blood pressure values taken at the wrist and upper arm. (Since even healthy persons may show a difference of 20 mmHg if the conditions of the measurement status are not suitable. Do not rely on the self-diagnosis or just one measurement, and always follow the advice of a physician.) Physiological conditions may have varying degrees of effect, but generally blood pressure values at the wrist and upper arm should display the same pattern of change. Consequently, it is possible to monitor trends in change by measuring blood pressure at the wrist and upper arm.

Contraindications

z Do not use the device on infants or persons who cannot communicate, as such use may lead to serious accidents. z Do not use the device for purposes other than measuring blood pressure. z Do not use this device near any mobile phone or microwave oven in use, or reading error may occur. z Do not try to disassemble or modify the unit or cuff, which may damage the unit or cause permanent reading error. z Do not start the inflation when the arm cuff is not wrapped around the arm. z Do not drop this unit and avoid subjecting the device to a strong impact.

7

Warning

z If the inflation continues and doesn’t stop, please open the cuff immediately or turn off the unit by pressing the

POWER button.

z Do not measure repeatedly for a long period of time. z This device is not supposed to be used if your arm has any wound or injury. z Remove batteries if not using the device for a long time. z Do not use batteries of different types or brands for this may lead to an incorrect reading and possibly cause battery explosion (for example mixing alkaline and heavy duty batteries). z Leaving the batteries in the blood pressure monitor for over 3 months and not using the device may damage the device by battery leakage. Please read the

Installing/Replacing Batteries section in this manual. z The device might not meet its normal performance if stored or used beyond the temperature and humidity ranges specified below.

„ Operating conditions: 10

℃~40℃, 40%~85% R.H.

„ Conditions for storage: -20

℃~50℃, 15%~85% R.H.

Suggestions before Measuring Blood Pressure

1. Please relax yourself physically and mentally for at least 5-10 minutes before measurement.

2. Avoid eating, smoking, exercising, bathing and drinking

(alcohol/coffee/tea) for at least 20-30 minutes before measuring your blood pressure.

3. Be sure the cuff is at the same level as your heart.

4. Stress raises blood pressure. Keep calm and relax during measurement.

5. Please DO NOT talk or speak during measurement.

6. Avoid urination or bowel movement before taking a measurement.

8

7. Wait at least 3 minutes before you take another blood pressure measurement.

8. Keep the records for your physician as reference.

9. Remember that a single measurement is not necessarily representative of your typical blood pressure. Recording multiple measurements over time will reveal the long-term trend of your blood pressure.

Try to measure your blood pressure at the same time each day for consistency.

How to Apply the Arm Cuff

1. Insert the air plug of the arm cuff into the air jack of the blood pressure monitor.

2. The cuff should be assembled correctly when it is removed from the box. If it is not, pass the end of the cuff furthest from the tubing through the metal D-ring to form a loop. The smooth cloth should be on the inside of the cuff loop.

13

3. If the cuff is assembled correctly, the sewn hook material will be on the outside of the cuff loop and the metal D-ring will not touch your skin.

4. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. The bottom of the cuff should be approximately 1/2” above the elbow.

The cuff tubing should be positioned along the middle of the inside of your arm as shown.

5. Pull the cuff so that the top and bottom edges are tightened evenly around your arm.

6. When the cuff is positioned correctly, press the sewn hook material firmly against the pile side of the cuff.

7. The cuff should be wrapped so that it fits snugly and stays in place. You should be able to fit one finger between the cuff and your ar m.

14

C orrect Measurement Position

In order to ensure accurate readings it is extremely im portant that the cuff is at the same level as your heart.

H igher or lower positions will give deviations from the true v alue.

M easurement while sitting down:

1. Sit in a chair with your feet flat o n the floor and rest your arm on a table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart.

2. Relax your arm and turn your palm upward.

3. Make sure there are no kinks in the air tubing.

4. After taking deep breaths several times before measurement, take a natural breath, and then relax your body.
