3. ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE
3.1. What is Blood Pressure?
Simply put, arterial blood pressure is the force of blood exerted against the walls of the arteries. There are
two components to blood pressure - systolic and diastolic pressure. Systolic, the higher pressure, occurs
during contraction of the heart. Diastolic, the lower pressure, occurs when the heart is at "rest."
Your level of blood pressure is determined in the circulatory center of the brain and adjusts to a variety of
situations through feedback from the nervous system. To adjust blood pressure, the strength and frequency
of the heart (Pulse), as well as the width of circulatory blood vessels is altered. Blood vessel width is
effected by fine muscles in the blood vessel walls. Blood pressure is traditionally measured in millimeters
of mercury (mmHg).
It is recorded as systolic/diastolic. For example a systolic of 120 and diastolic of 80 would be recorded
120/80.
Blood pressure is a dynamic vital sign - one that changes constantly throughout the day. A person's
"resting" blood pressure is the pressure that exists first thing in the morning while a person is still at rest
and before consumption of food or drink.
3.2. What is a Normal Blood Pressure?
A systolic pressure of less than 120mmHg and a diastolic pressure of under 80mmHg are recognized as
normal by the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood
Pressure, 2003.
NOTE: Blood pressure does increase with age, so you must check with your doctor to find out what is
“normal” for you! Even with normal blood pressure values, a regular self-check with your blood pressure
monitor is recommended. You can detect possible changes in your values early and react appropriately. If
you are undergoing medical treatment to control your blood pressure, keep a record of values along with
time of day and date. Show these values to your doctor. Never use the results of your measurements to
independently alter the drug doses prescribed by your doctor.
3.3. What Influences Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is influenced by many factors including age, weight, physical conditioning, past illness,
time of day, altitude, activity, and climate, to name just a few. In general, blood pressure is lower in the
morning and increases throughout the day. It is lower in warm weather, and higher in cold weather.
Physical activity can have a significant short term impact on blood pressure. Work, exercise, smoking,
eating, drinking - even talking, laughing, or crying will all affect a person's blood pressure.
Your diet, including beverages containing caffeine or alcohol, may affect blood pressure. Emotional stress
can have a dramatic impact on your blood pressure.
Even repeated blood pressure measurements taken without adequate rest between readings will alter your
blood pressure as the vessels in your arm engorge with blood. Many of these influences are only
temporary or short term, though chronic (long term) exposure to some factors may result in permanently
elevated blood pressure levels.
3.4. Does Blood Pressure Vary?
Constantly. An individual's blood pressure varies greatly on a daily and seasonal basis. It changes
throughout one's lifetime. It is not uncommon for systolic pressure to vary by 40mmHg or more
throughout the course of a single day! While generally not as volatile, diastolic pressure can still vary
significantly. In hypertensive individuals, variations are even more pronounced. Normally, blood pressure
is at its lowest during sleep and rises in the morning and throughout the day. The chart (left) illustrates the
fluctuations that could occur in a typical day.
3.5. What is Hypertension?
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is elevated systolic or diastolic levels. In 90 to 95 percent of the
diagnosed cases, the specific causes are unknown, although the condition is often linked with family
history, and lifestyle. This is referred to as essential hypertension. In the remaining cases, high blood
pressure is a symptom of an underlying, often treatable condition, which if corrected, may normalize blood
pressure. This less common type is known as secondary hypertension. Hypertension, if left untreated, may
contribute to kidney disease, heart attack, stroke, or other debilitating illnesses. The following standards for
assessment of high blood pressure in adults have been established by the Joint National Committee, 2003.

Remember: Only a physician is qualified to interpret the readings obtained from your blood pressure
monitor. No attempt should ever be made at self-diagnosis or treatment.
3.6. Can Hypertension be Controlled?
Although essential hypertension cannot be cured, it can usually be controlled by altering lifestyle
(including diet), adopting a program of exercise, stress management and, where necessary, with
medication under a doctor's supervision.
To help reduce the risk of hypertension, or keep it under control, the American Heart Association (AHA)
recommends the following:
•
•
•
•
•
Don't smoke
Reduce salt and fat intake
Maintain proper weight
Exercise regularly
Have regular physical checkups
3.7. Why Measure Blood Pressure at Home?
Clinical studies have shown improved detection and treatment of hypertension when regular home blood
pressure monitoring is done in consultation with a physician.
Blood pressure measured in a doctor's office or hospital setting may cause anxiety and lead to an elevated
reading—a condition referred to as "white coat hypertension."
Home measurements generally reduce the "outside" influences on blood pressure readings, and can
provide a more comprehensive and meaningful blood pressure history.
Note: While it is important to keep an accurate record of your blood pressure measurements, don't be
overly concerned by the results of any one measurement. Individual results may be influenced by spiking
of your pressure due to diet, anxiety, or mis-measurement resulting from excessive arm movement, or
misapplication of the cuff. Many readings taken at the same time each day give a more comprehensive
blood pressure history.
Always be sure to note the date and time when recording blood pressure and pulse measurements. For
best results, and with time permitting, 3 successive measurements may be taken daily. Make sure to allow
at least 1 minute between measurements. Discard any reading that appears suspect and record the average
of the remaining readings.
3.8. How is Blood Pressure Measured?
Healthcare professionals traditionally use a device known as a sphygmomanometer along with a
stethoscope - essentially a professional version of the very same instrument you have purchased. The
sphygmomanometer is a system consisting of an inflatable bladder contained within a cuff, inflation bulb
with air control valve, and pressure measuring manometer (gauge). The gauge may be mechanical,
electronic, or mercurial. The cuff is wrapped around the limb and inflated to constrict blood flow to the
artery. As pressure is released from the cuff through the deflation valve, blood flow returns to the artery
producing pulse beats known as Korotkoff sounds, which are detected with the stethoscope. Systolic
pressure is recorded at the onset of these sounds. Diastolic pressure is generally recorded when the
sounds disappear (when blood flow to the artery returns to normal).
3.9. How should I record my blood pressure?
Record your blood pressure by setting up a simple chart in a spiral-bound notebook as shown below, or
use the included record book.

If you like you can add a column for comments about your condition at the time of measurement, or a
listing of any factors that may have influenced your readings (such as "had a cold", or "just returned from
vacation").
For best results, and with time permitting, 3 successive measurements may be taken daily. Make sure to
allow at least a 1 minute interval between measurements. Discard any reading that appears suspect and
record the average of the remaining readings. If this method is used, be sure to note that the readings are
averaged.
On the Advantage™ Ultra (6016N) model, PC Link software is available. Records can be automatically
transferred to your Windows computer. Many smart phone and tablet apps allow you to record, chart, and
share your BP measurements. ADC recommends Microsoft® Healthvault™.

and deflate three times resulting in one final average.
5.5. Using ADC Average Mode Technology (6016N only)
1. In MAM Advantage™ Averaging mode, three measurements are automatically taken in
succession and the result then automatically analyzed and displayed. Because your blood
pressure constantly fluctuates, a result determined in this way is more reliable than one
produced by a single measurement.
2. After pressing the «ON/OFF» button, the MAM Advantage™ Averaging mode icon
appears in the display.
3. The bottom right hand section of the display shows a 1, 2, or 3 to indicate which of the 3
measurements is currently being taken.
4. There is a break of 15 seconds between the measurements (15 seconds are adequate according
to “Blood Pressure Monitoring, 2001, 6:145-147” for oscillometric instruments). A countdown
indicates the remaining time.
5. The individual results from measurements 1, 2 and 3 are not initially displayed.
NOTE: If you want to see each of the individual readings making up a triplicate reading, turn
the unit off, then press and hold the Memory button for 3 seconds, until you hear a tone,
immediately after a MAM Advantage™ Averaging Mode measurement.
Note: You can only see the individual readings one time immediately following an Averaging
Mode measurement.
Do not remove the cuff between measurements.
6. MEASUREMENT PROCEDURE
6.1. Before measurement:
• Avoid eating and smoking as well as all forms of exertion directly before measurement. These factors
influence the measurement result. Find time to relax by sitting in an armchair in a quiet atmosphere for
about 5 minutes before taking a measurement.
• Always measure on the same wrist (normally left).
• Always compare measurements taken at the same time of day, since blood pressure changes during the
course of the day, as much as 20-40 mmHg.
6.2. Common sources of error:
NOTE: Comparable blood pressure measurements always require the same conditions! Conditions
should always be quiet.
• All efforts by the user to support the arm can increase blood pressure. Make sure you are in a
comfortable, relaxed position and do not flex any of the muscles in the measurement arm during the
measurement. Use a cushion for support if necessary.
• If the arm artery lies considerably lower or higher than the heart, an erroneously high or low blood
pressure will be measured! Each 15cm (6 inch) difference in height between your heart and the cuff
results in a measurement error of 10 mmHg!
• A loose cuff or a sideways protruding air pocket causes false measurement values.
• With repeated measurements, blood accumulates in the arm, which can lead to false results. Consecutive
blood pressure measurements should be repeated after a 1 minute pause or after your arm has been held
up in order to allow the accumulated blood to flow away. If you decide to take your Averaging Mode
measurement again, be sure to wait at least one minute beforehand.
6.3. Fitting the Cuff
1. Remove all objects and jewelry (e.g. wristwatch) from the wrist in use. Put the
cuff over the wrist with the monitor face on the inside of the wrist. The buttons
should be on the bottom.
2. The distance between the cuff and the hand should be approx. 10 mm (1/2").
3. Secure the cuff with the hook and loop fastener, so that it lies comfortably and
not too tight. No space should remain between the cuff and the wrist.
4. Lay your arm on a table, with the palm upwards. Support the arm a little with a
cushion, so that the cuff rests at about the same height as the heart. Remain
still for 2 minutes, before beginning the measurement. You can also use the
storage case as a support.
6.4. Measurement Procedure
After the cuff has been appropriately positioned, the measurement can begin:
1. Press the «ON/OFF» button. The built-in pump begins to inflate the cuff. In the display, the increasing
cuff pressure is continually displayed.
2. After a suitable inflation pressure has been reached, the pump stops and the pressure gradually falls,
with cuff pressures being displayed. If that inflation pressure is not sufficient, the monitor automatically
re-inflates.
3. When the measurement has been completed, the systolic, and diastolic blood pressures and pulse rate
now appear in the display.
4. The measurement readings remain on the display until you switch off the instrument. If no button is
pressed for a period of 2 minutes the instrument switches itself off in order to preserve the batteries.
5. When the unit is set to the MAM setting, 3 separate measurements will take place in succession after
which your result is calculated and displayed as a single, averaged measurement. There is a 15 second
resting time in-between each measurement. A countdown indicates the remaining time.
6. NOTE: If one of the measurements causes an error message, it will be repeated one more time. If any
additional error occurs, the measurement will be discontinued and an error code will be displayed.
Expanding the averaged measurement to see the three individual readings: This function
allows you to view the three individual measurements used to calculate the ADC®
Averaging Mode Technology™ measurement. After taking an averaging mode
measurement turn unit off, hold the Memory button for 3 seconds until you hear a short
beep. (Do not hold the button longer than 7 seconds or you will delete all the readings in
the memory!) Let go of the button and watch the screen. It will automatically scroll through
the three measurements used in the measurement.
6.5. Discontinuing a Measurement
If it is necessary to interrupt a blood pressure measurement for any reason (e.g. the patient feels unwell),
the «ON/OFF» button can be pressed at any time. The device immediately lowers the cuff pressure
automatically.
6.6. Reading Measurement Results:
When the measurement has been concluded, the measured systolic and diastolic blood pressure values, as
well as the pulse will be displayed.
The appearance of this symbol
signifies that an irregular heartbeat was detected. This indicator is only
a caution. It is important that you be relaxed, remain still and do not talk during measurements.
NOTE: We recommend contacting your physician if you see this indicator frequently.
To prolong the batteries’ life the device switches off automatically if no button is pressed for 2 minutes.
Otherwise you can switch it off by pressing the «ON/OFF» button.
