INTRODUCTION
General Description
Thank you for selecting the IC Sciences Blood Pressure Arm Monitor (TMB-1018-BT).
The monitor features blood pressure measurement, pulse rate measurement and
the data storage. The design provides you with two years of storage.
Readings taken by the TMB-1018-BT are equivalent to those obtained by a trained
observer using the cuff and stethoscope auscultation method.
This manual contains important safety and care information, and provides step-by-step
instruction for using the product.
Read the manual thoroughly before using the product.
Features:
Blue LCD display with white backlight
Up to 60 pieces of recorded data stored for each user
Measuring While Inflating (MWI) technology
Bluetooth data transmitting function
Indications For Use
1.The IC Sciences Blood Pressure Arm Monitor is a digital monitor intended for
measuring blood pressure and heartbeat rate for people with an arm circumference
ranging from 22cm to 42 cm (about 8.66-16.5 inches).
2. The monitor detects irregular heartbeats during measurement and gives a
warning signal with readings.
3. It is intended for adult use in the home setting only.
Contraindications
1. The device is contraindicated for any person connected to a wearable or
implantable electronic device or instrument such as a pacemaker or defibrillator.
2. The device is not intended to be a diagnostic device. Contact your
physician if hypertensive values are indicated.
Measurement Principle
This product uses the Oscillometric Measuring method to detect blood pressure.
Before every measurement, the unit establishes a “zero pressure” equivalent to
the air pressure.Then it starts inflating the arm cuff; meanwhile, the unit detects
pressure oscillations generated by beat-to-beat pulsatile, which is used to determine
the systolic and diastolic pressure and pulse rate.The device also compares
the longest and the shortest time intervals of detected pulse waves to mean time
interval then calculates standard deviation.The device will display a warning signal
with the reading to indicate the detection of irregular heartbeat when the difference
of the time intervals over.

CAUTION
Please read this user manual carefully and thoroughly before use.
This device is intended for adult use in the home/domestic only.
This device is intended for non-invasive measuring and monitoring of arterial blood pressure. It is not
intended for use on extremities other than the upper arm or for functions other than obtaining a blood
pressure measurement.
Do not confuse self-monitoring with self-diagnosis. This unit allows you to monitor your blood
pressure. Do not start or end medical treatment without a physician’s consent.
If you are taking medication, consult your physician to determine the most appropriate time for your
measurement. Never change a prescribed medication without your physician’s consent.
This unit is not suitable for continuous monitoring during medical emergencies or operations.
If the pressure of the cuff exceeds 40 kPa (300 mmHg), the unit will automatically deflate. Should the
cuff not deflate when its pressure exceeds 40 kPa (300 mmHg), detach the cuff from the upper arm
and press the homologous button to stop inflation.
Do not use the monitor under the conditions of strong electromagnetic field (e.g. mobile) that radiates
interference signal or electrical fast transient / burst signal, especially when the AC adaptor is applied.
Do not touch the output of batteries and the patient simultaneously.
The device is not AP/APG equipment. It is not suitable for use in the presence of a flammable
anesthetic mixture with air (or oxygen, nitrous oxide).
Please keep the unit out of reach of infants or children, since inhalation or swallowing of small parts
is dangerous or even fatal.
Please use ACCESSORIES and detachable parts specified / authorised by IC Sciences.
Otherwise, it may cause damage to the unit or danger to the user / patient.
The materials of the cuff have been tested and found to comply with requirements of ISO 10993-5:
2009 and ISO 10993-10:2010. It will not cause any potential alergic reaction or contact injury.
Please make sure the unit functions safely and it is in proper working conditions before use.

CAUTION
Interference may occur in the vicinity of equipment marked with the following symbol
. And TMB-1018-BT may interfere other electrical equipment in the area.
Sensitive people, including pregnant women and those with implanted medical electronic devices, should avoid using the unit whenever possible.
Keep the monitor at least 20 centimeters (about 8 inches) away from the human
body (especially the head) when the data transmission is proceeding after
measurement.
To enable the data transmission function, this product should be paired to Bluetooth
end at 2.4 GHz.
How to mitigate possible interference?
1. The range between the device and BT end should be reasonably close, from 1
meter to 10 meters (about 3 to 30 feet). Please ensure no obstacles are between
the device and BT end to obtain a connection and to lower the RF output range.
2. To avoid interference, other electronic devices (particularly those with wireless
transmission/Transmitter) should be kept at least 1 meter (about 3 feet) away
from the monitor.

ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
What are systolic and diastolic pressures?
When ventricles contract and pump blood out
of the heart, the blood pressure reaches its
maximum value in the cycle, which is called
systolic pressure. When the ventricles relax,
the blood pressure reaches its minimum
value in the cycle, which is called diastolic
pressure.

What is the standard blood pressure classification?
The chart on the right
illustrates the blood
pressure classification
mode by American Heart
Association (AHA).
The AHA recommends
the following guidelines
for upper limit of normal
blood pressure readings
at home.
This chart reflects blood pressure categories defined by American Heart Association.

Irregular Heartbeat Detector
This Blood Pressure Monitor is equipped with an intelligent function of Irregular
Heartbeat (IHB) Detector. During each measurement, the arm cuff records the
heartbeat intervals and determines the standard deviation. If the calculated value is
larger than or equal to 15, this monitor will show the IHB symbol on the screen
when displaying the measuring result.
CAUTION
The appearance of the IHB icon indicates that a pulse irregularity consistent with
an irregular heartbeat was detected during measurement. Usually this is NOT a
cause for concern. However, if the symbol appears often, we recommend you
seek medical advice. Please note that the device does not replace a cardiac
examination, but serves to detect pulse irregularities at an early stage.
16
Why does my blood
pressure fluctuate
throughout the day?
1. Individual blood pressure varies
throughout the day. It can also be
affected by the way you fasten your cuff
and your measurement position; take the
measurement in the same position.
2.Blood pressure varies even
more when you on medication.
3.Wait at least 3 minutes to take
your blood pressure again.
Why are measurements
taken in the hospital
different than those
taken at home?
Blood pressure can be different
even during a 24-hour period
because of the weather, emotion,
exercise etc. Especially “white coat”
syndrome, which makes results
higher than the ones at home.
Follow these tips for
correct to ensure correct
readings:
Make sure the cuff is fastened
correctly.
Make sure the the cuff is not too tight
or too loose.
Relax for 4-5 minutes before taking
your blood pressure.
Take several deep breaths before
beginning.
Is the result the same
when measuring on the
right arm?
It is ok to take readings in both
arms, but there may be different
results for each arm. Try to use the
same arm every time.
