BASIC PRODUCT INFORMATION
This manual is intended to assist the user in the safe and efficient operation
of the Model MF-46 Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. The product must be
used in accordance with the procedures contained in this manual and
must not be used for purposes other than those described herein. It is
important to read and understand the entire manual. In particular, please
read carefully and become familiar with the section entitled “TIPS ON
TAKING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE”.
The user is cautioned that the system may fail to yield specified measurement
accuracy if operated or stored in temperature or humidity conditions outside
the limits stated in the specifications section of this manual. Also, an
inaccurate reading may result if this instrument is used on a child's arm.
Consult your physician if you wish to take a child's blood pressure.
Indications for Use
The MF-46 system is intended for the non-invasive measurement of systolic
and diastolic blood pressure and determination of heart rate in adult patients,
i.e., age 15 and above. The product is recommended for use by patients
with labile blood pressure or known hypertension in a home care environment
as an adjunct to medical management. The cuff will accommodate an
upper arm circumference range of approximately 8.7 to 12.6 inches (22
to 32 centimeters). Pressure is measured over a range of 0 to 300 mmHg
and heart rate over a range of 40 to 160 beats/minute.
Method of Measurement
This product employs the oscillometric method for measurement of blood
pressure and heart rate. The cuff is connected to the main unit and wrapped
around the arm. Circuits within the monitor sense the small oscillations in
pressure against the cuff produced by the expansion and contraction of the
arteries in the arm in response to each heart beat. The amplitude of each
pressure wave is measured, converted to millimeters of mercury, and
displayed on the LCD as a digital value. Memory circuit stores the 30
most recent measurement results for comparison.
Accuracy was evaluated during clinical studies in which results with the MF46 system were compared with simultaneous auscultatory measurements
obtained with a standard sphygmomanometer. In these studies, the onset
of the fourth (or fifth) Korotkoff sound was taken as the diastolic pressure
for the purpose of determining overall efficacy. A copy of this study is available
from the manufacturer on request. To insure that accuracy is maintained,
compare readings obtained with the MF-46 system with values measured
by a trained observer using a manual sphygmomanometer at least every
6 months.
Blood pressure measurements determined with this device are equivalent
to those obtained by a trained observer using the cuff stethoscope
auscultation method, within the limits prescribed by the American National
Standard, Electronic or Automated Sphygmomanometers.
The MF-46 system has the ability to function according to its specifications
in the presence of common arrhythmias such as atrial or ventricular
premature beats or atrial fibrillation.
CAUTION!
Do not use cuffs other than the original cuff
included with this product.

Op
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force exerted by the heart in pumping the blood
through the arteries and the resistance by the veins in this flow.
Blood pressure changes easily as influenced by mental and physical factors
and is never constant.
Causes for Changes in Blood Pressure
• Body movement
• Conversation
• Mental Tension
• Emotions • Meals
• Drinking Alcohol
• Smoking
• Recent Urination or Bowel Movement
• Temperature
• Changes in the surroundings such as movement or noise, etc.
In general, blood pressure is highest during the working hours and gradually decreases during
the afternoon and evening hours. It is low during sleep and slowly increases at a relatively fast
rate after arising from bed.
Blood pressure measured at home tends to be lower than when measured
in a hospital, clinic or doctor's office.
When blood pressure is measured in a hospital, it could be higher than when measured at
home. This is because you are tense at the hospital and relaxed at home. It is important to
know your stable normal blood pressure at home.
Let a qualified physician interpret your blood pressure readings.
Depending on your age, weight and general condition, blood pressure can be slightly different.
Consult with your doctor on determining what blood pressure is normal for you.

Sit at the table and let the table support your arm as you take the blood pressure measurement.
Make sure that the measurement location on the upper arm is at approximately the same height as the heart,
and that the forearm is extended naturally on the table and does not move.
You may lie on your back and take the measurement. Look at the ceiling, stay calm, and do not move your neck or body during the
measurement. Again, make sure that the measurement location on the arm is at approximately the same height as the heart.
WRAPPING THE CUFF
see fig.3
page 4
1 With the tube of the cuff positioned in the direction of the fingertips, place it on your
left arm.
2 Wrap the cuff around the arm with the edge of the cuff approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm)
above the elbow.
3 Press the surface of the cuff to make sure that it is attached securely.
When wrapping the cuff, wrap it loosely enough around the arm so that two fingers can be placed between
the cuff and the arm. If the cuff is wrapped more tightly or loosely than this, inaccurate blood pressure
readings may result.
If you are wearing a shirt that might restrict circulation in your upper arm or you roll your sleeve up over
the upper arm, the blood flow will be restricted, preventing accurate measurement.

air rapidly, and then turn off.
Do not take repeated measurements.
blood can be forced into tissues
beyond the cuff, which would result
in incorrect measurements. Let your
arm rest for at least 5 minutes.
Automatic Repressurization
If the pressure applied is judged insufficient in the early
phase of measurement or if movement of arm or hand
occurs during measurement, the unit will inflate again to a
level about 40 mmHg higher. Automatic Repressurization
is repeated until a measurement is made. However, this
does not indicate a problem.
To manually control pressurization, hold down ON/OFF
BUTTON immediately after the start of inflation and
release it when the pressure reaches the level 50 mmHg
higher than the expected maximum systolic pressure. If
the pressure value has exceeded 180 mmHg, the inflation
will stop when the key is released. Pressure can be
increased to approximately 300 mmHg.
MEMORY FUNCTIONS
