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 affected
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.
6
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.
7
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.
9
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
5 minute intervals 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 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
10
may be taken daily. Make sure to allow at least 5 minute intervals
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 (6023N) 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, cart, and share your BP
measurements. ADC® recommends Microsoft® Healthvault™.

measurement) or measurement averaging mode (automatic triple
measurement).
a) To select Standard mode, push the switch on the side
1
3
of the instrument towards position "1."
b) To select Averaging mode, push the switch toward position "3."
Note the MAM Advantage™ Averaging mode
icon will
illuminate on the display.
If you select 1, then only one measurement will be taken. If you
select 3, the unit will inflate and deflate three times resulting in
one final average.
5.7. Using MAM Advantage™ Averaging Mode (6022N,
6023N 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 and a beep will sound 5 seconds
before the 2nd and 3rd readings will begin.
5. The individual results from measurements 1, 2 and 3 are not
initially displayed.
15
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 immediately after a MAM
Advantage™ Averaging Mode measurement. Note: You can only
see the individual readings one time immediately following an
Averaging Mode measurement. See section 5.6.
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 ten
minutes before taking a measurement.
• Remove any garment that fits closely to your upper arm.
• Always measure on the same arm (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!
• Cuffs that are too narrow or too short result in false measurement values.
Selecting the correct cuff is extremely important. Cuff size is dependent
upon the circumference of the arm (measured in the center).
The permissible range is printed on the cuff. If this is not suitable for your
16
• The permissible range is printed on the cuff. If this is not suitable for your
use, please call 1-800-232-2670.
NOTE: Only use approved ADC cuffs!
®
• 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 Rigid Cuff (6023N only)
a) The cuff is pre-formed for easier use. Remove tight
or bulky clothing from your upper arm.
b) Wrap the cuff around your upper left arm.
The rubber tube should be on the inside of
your arm extending downward to your
hand. Make certain the cuff lies
approximately 1/2−3/4” (1−2 cm) above the elbow.
Important! The red strip on the edge of the cuff (Artery
Mark) must lie over the artery which runs down the inner
side of the arm.
Left Arm
tube
c) To secure the cuff, wrap it around your arm and press
the hook and loop closure together.
d) There should be little free space between your arm
and the cuff. You should be able to fit 2 fingers
between your arm and the cuff. Cuffs that don’t fit
properly result in false measurement values. Measure
your arm circumference if you are not sure of proper fit.
e) Lay your arm on a table (palm upward) so the cuff is at the
same height as your heart. Make sure the tube is not kinked.
f) Remain seated quietly for at least two minutes before
you begin the measurement.
17
6.4 Fitting the D-Bar Cuff (6021N, 6022N models)
Left Arm
a) Pass the end of the cuff through the flat metal
ring so that a loop is formed. The hook and loop
closure must be facing outward.
b) Place the cuff over the left upper arm so that
the tube is closer to your lower arm.
c) Lay the cuff on the arm as illustrated. Make certain
that the lower edge of the cuff lies approximately
3/4” to 1” (2 to 3cm) above the elbow and that the
tube is closer to the inner side of the arm.
Important! The small red strip (Artery Mark) on the
cuff must lie exactly over the artery which runs down the inner
side of the arm.
d) Tighten the cuff by pulling the end and close
the cuff by affixing the hook and loop closure.
To verify a correct fit, the small white triangle
on the outside of the cuff should fall between
the 2 range lines.

e) There should be little free space between the arm
and the cuff. You should be able to fit 2 fingers between your arm and the
cuff. Clothing must not restrict the arm. Any piece of clothing which does,
must be removed. Cuffs that don’t fit properly result in false measurement
values. Measure your arm circumference if you are not sure of proper fit.
Other size cuffs are available (Page 12).
f) Lay your arm on a table (palm upward) so the cuff is at the same height as
your heart. Make sure the tube is not kinked.
g) Remain seated quietly for at least two minutes before you begin the
measurement.
Comment: If it is not possible to fit the cuff to your left arm, it can also be
placed on your right arm. However, all measurements should be made using
the same arm. Comparable blood pressure measurements always require the
same conditions (Relax for several minutes before taking a measurement).
18
6.5. Measurement Procedure
After the cuff has been appropriately positioned and
connected to the monitor, 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-starts.
3. When the instrument detects a pulse, the heart symbol
in the
display starts to flash and a beep is heard for every heartbeat.
4.
When the measurement has concluded, a long beep tone sounds. The
systolic, and diastolic blood pressures and pulse rate now appear in the
display.
5.
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. See Section 8 (page 23) for more
information.
6. The measurement readings remain on the display until you switch off the
instrument. If no button is pressed for a period of 1 minute the instrument
switches itself off in order to preserve the batteries.
7. 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 and a beep will sound 5 seconds before the 2nd and
3rd readings will begin.
19
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.
6.6. Reading Measurement Results:
When the measurement has been concluded, a long
beep tone sounds. The measured systolic
and diastolic blood pressure values, as well as
the pulse are now displayed.
The appearance of this symbol
signifies
that an irregular heartbeat was detected.

8. IRREGULAR HEARTBEAT DETECTOR
This function indicates an allorhythmic heartbeat. If the IHD symbol
appears on the display that means that certain abnormalities in
heartbeat frequency were detected during the measurement. In this
case, the result may deviate from your normal blood pressure – repeat
the measurement. In most cases, this is no cause for concern.
However, if the symbol
appears on a regular basis (e.g. several
times a week with measurements taken daily) we advise you to tell
your doctor. Please show your doctor the following explanation:

Information for the doctor on frequent appearance of the
Irregular Heartbeat Detector
This instrument is an oscillometric blood pressure monitor that also analyses
pulse frequency during measurement. The instrument is clinically tested. The
symbol
is displayed after the measurement, if pulse irregularities occur
during measurement. If the symbol appears more frequently (e.g. several times
per week on measurements performed daily) we recommend the patient to seek
medical advice. The instrument does not replace a cardiac examination, but
serves to detect pulse irregularities at an early stage.

9. MEMORY FUNCTION
9.1 Recall and Storage of Measurements
24
At the end of a measurement, this monitor automatically stores each result
with date and time. This unit stores 99 memories for each of 2 users.
Viewing the Stored Values
With the unit off, press the «MEMORY» button. The display first shows "3A",
then shows the average of all measurements stored in the unit.
NOTE: Measurements for each user are averaged and stored separately. Be
certain that you are viewing the measurements for the correct user (with no
time and date shown).
Pressing the «MEMORY»
button again displays the
previous value. To view a
particular stored memory,
press and hold the
«MEMORY» button to scroll
to that stored reading.

is displayed including
Further information
Measurements should not occur soon after each other; otherwise, the
results will be skewed. Wait for several minutes in a relaxed position,
sitting or lying, before you repeat a measurement.
9.2. 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.
9.3. Delete Memory
Before you delete all memory readings stored, make sure you won’t need to
refer to them at a later date. Keeping a written record is prudent and may
provide additional information for your doctor’s visit.
25
To delete stored memory readings, hold the
«MEMORY» button down until the LCD shows a
«CL». Release the button. Press the «MEMORY»
button while «CL» is flashing to complete the operation.
It is impossible to erase the values individually.
10. ERROR MESSAGES/TROUBLESHOOTING
If an error occurs during a measurement, the measurement is
discontinued and a corresponding error code is displayed
(Example: Err 2).
Error No.
26
Possible Cause(s)/Solutions
ERR 1
The systolic pressure was determined, but then the pressure in the cuff
went down to less than 20 mmHg (diastolic blood pressure can’t be
measured). The tube may have loosened after the systolic pressure has
been determined. Further possible reason: pulse could not be detected.
ERR 2
Unnatural pressure impulses influence the measurement result.
Reason: the arm was moved during the measurement.
ERR 3
If inflation of the cuff takes too long, the cuff is not correctly
seated or the hose connection’s not tight.
ERR 5
The difference between systolic and diastolic is excessive.
Measure again carefully following proper procedures. Consult
your doctor if you still get unusual results of measurements.
Error No.
Possible Cause(s)/Solutions
HI
The pressure in the cuff is too high (over 300mmHg) or the pulse
is too high (over 200 beats per minute). Relax for 5 minutes and
repeat the measurement.
LO
The pulse is too low (less than 40 beats per minute). Relax for
5 minutes and repeat the measurement.
Other possible errors and their solutions
If problems occur when using this device, the following points should be
checked.
Malfunction
Remedy
The display remains blank when 1. Check battery installation/ polarity.
the device is switched on though 2. Remove the batteries and if the display is

unusual, then exchange them for new ones.
The pressure does not rise
although the pump is running.
Check the connection of the cuff tube and
connect properly.
The device frequently fails to
measure, or the values
measured are too low or high.
1. Fit the cuff correctly on the arm.
2. Before starting measurement make sure that
clothing is not exerting pressure on the arm. Take
articles of clothing off if necessary. Measure blood
pressure again in complete peace and quiet.
Every measurement results in
different values, although the
device functions normally and
normal values are displayed.
Refer to Section 3. About Blood
Blood pressure values differ from
those measured at the doctor’s.
Refer to Section 3.7. Why Measure
Pressure.
Blood Pressure at Home?
27
NOTE: Blood pressure is subject to fluctuations even in healthy people.
Please remember that comparable blood pressure measurements
always require the same time and the same conditions! These are
normally quiet conditions. If you follow the procedure described earlier and
still get fluctuations of blood pressure of greater than 15 mmHg and/or you
repeatedly hear irregular pulse tones, consult your doctor.
Attention!
Should any technical malfunctions arise in the blood pressure monitor,
please contact the dealer where you bought the device or ADC®. Never
attempt to repair the instrument yourself! Any unauthorized opening of
the instrument invalidates all warranty claims.
11. CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Do not expose the device to either extreme temperatures, humidity,
dust or direct sunlight.
Handle the cuff carefully and avoid all types of stress through twisting
or buckling in order not to damage the sensitive air-tight bubble.
Clean the device with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use gas, thinners or
similar solvents. Spots on the cuff can be removed carefully with a
damp cloth and soapsuds. Do not submerge the cuff in water!
Handle the tubing carefully.
Keep the tube away from sharp edges.
Do not drop the monitor or treat it roughly in any way.
Never open the monitor!
This invalidates the manufacturer’s warranty.
