1. Introduction
1.1. Features of your Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor
Your blood pressure monitor with Microlife Averaging Mode, Irregular Heartbeat
Detection, and PC Link Blood Pressure Analyzer Software is a fully automatic digital
blood pressure measuring device for use by adults on the upper arm at home or in
your doctor’s/nurse’s office. It enables very fast and reliable measurement of systolic
and diastolic blood pressure as well as pulse through the oscillometric method. This
device offers clinically proven accuracy and has been designed to be user friendly.
Before using, please read this instruction manual carefully and then keep it in a safe
place. Please contact your doctor for further questions on the subject of blood pressure and its measurement.
Attention!
1.2. Important information about self-measurement
• Self-measurement means control, not diagnosis or treatment. Unusual values
must always be discussed with your doctor. Under no circumstances should
you alter the dosages of any drugs prescribed by your doctor.
• The pulse display is not suitable for checking the frequency of heart pacemakers!
• In cases of irregular heartbeat, measurements made with this instrument should
only be evaluated after consultation with your doctor.
Electromagnetic interference:
The device contains sensitive electronic components. Avoid strong electrical or electromagnetic fields in the direct vicinity of the device (e.g. mobile telephones,
microwave ovens). These can lead to temporary impairment of the measuring accuracy.
2. Important Information on Blood Pressure and its Measurement
2.1. How does high or low blood pressure arise?
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 speed of the heart (Pulse), as well as the width of
circulatory blood vessels is altered. Blood vessel width is controlled by fine muscles
in the blood vessel walls.
Your level of arterial blood pressure changes periodically during heart activity: During
the “blood ejection” (Systole) the value is highest (systolic blood pressure value). At
the end of the heart’s “rest period” (Diastole) pressure is lowest (diastolic blood pressure value).
2
Blood pressure values must lie within certain normal ranges in order to prevent particular diseases.
2.2. Which values are normal?
Blood pressure is very high if your diastolic pressure is above 100 mmHg and/or
your systolic blood pressure is over 160 mmHg, while at rest. In this case,
please consult your physician immediately. Long-term values at this level endanger your health due to continual damage to the blood vessels in your body.
If your systolic blood pressure values are between 140 mmHg and 159mmHg
and/or the diastolic blood pressure values between 90 mmHg and 99mmHg,
consult your physician. Regular self-checks are necessary.
If you have blood pressure values that are too low, (i.e., systolic values under
105mmHg and/or diastolic values under 60 mmHg), consult your physician.
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
physician. Never use the results of your measurements to independently
alter the drug doses prescribed by your physician.
Which values are normal?
The following standards for assessing high blood pressure in adults have been
established by the U.S. National Institutes of Health JNC7, 2003.

+ Further information
• If your values are mostly normal under resting conditions but exceptionally high
under conditions of physical or psychological stress, it is possible that you are
suffering from so-called “labile hypertension.” Consult your doctor.
• Correctly measured diastolic blood pressure values above 120mmHg
require immediate medical treatment.
2.3. What can be done if regular high or low values are obtained?
a) Consult your doctor.
b) Increased blood pressure values (various forms of hypertension) are associated
with considerable health risks over time. Arterial blood vessels in your body are
endangered due to constriction caused by deposits in the vessel walls
(Arteriosclerosis). A deficient supply of blood to important organs (heart, brain,
muscles) can result from arteriosclerosis. Furthermore, the heart will become
structurally damaged with increased blood pressure values.
c) There are many different causes of high blood pressure. We differentiate
between the common primary (essential) hypertension, and secondary hypertension. The latter group can be ascribed to specific organ malfunctions. Please consult your doctor for information about the possible origins of your own increased
blood pressure values.
d) There are measures which you can take to reduce and even prevent high blood
pressure. These measures must be permanent lifestyle changes.
A) Eating habits
• Strive for a normal weight corresponding to your age. See your doctor for your
ideal weight.
• Avoid excessive consumption of common salt.
• Avoid fatty foods.
B) Previous illnesses
• Consistently follow all medical instructions for treating illness such as:
• Diabetes (Diabetes mellitus or sugar diabetes)
• Fat metabolism disorder
• Gout
C) Habits
• Give up smoking completely.
• Drink only moderate amounts of alcohol.
• Restrict your caffeine consumption (coffee, tea, chocolate).
4
D) Your physical condition
• After a medical examination, and with your doctor’s approval and
direction; exercise.
• Choose sports which require stamina and avoid those which require strength.
• Avoid reaching the limit of your performance.
• With previous illnesses and/or an age of over 40 years, please consult
your doctor before beginning your exercise routine. Speak with your doctor
regarding the type and extent of exercise that is appropriate for you.

4.6. Select the User
This blood pressure monitor is designed to store 120 measurements for each of two users. In addition, there is a guest
mode in which results are not stored. Before taking a measurement, be certain that the correct user has been selected.
a) With the unit off, press and release the TIME button to
cycle through users (“1,”2,”or guest mode).
b) Press the START button to make your selection.
Guest Mode
4.6. Microlife Averaging Mode Technology
• In Microlife Averaging Mode, three measurements are auto matically 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.
• After pressing the Start/Stop button the selected Microlife Averaging Mode
appears in the display as the
symbol.
• 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.
7
5. Measurement Procedure
Please note: You should always be seated before and during measurement.
5.1. 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.
5.2. 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 use, please call 1-800568-4147.
Note: Only use clinically approved Microlife 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.
8
5.3. Fitting the Cuff
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” to 3/4” (1 to 2 cm)
above the elbow.
8.7” - 16.5”
½”-¾”
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.
TIP: Align red artery mark to pinky finger.
c) To secure the cuff, wrap it around your
arm and press the velcro together.
d) There should be little free space
between the arm and the cuff. You
should 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.
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.
9
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.
Cuff on
right arm
Comparable blood pressure measurements always
require the same conditions (Relax for several minutes
before taking a measurement).
5.4. Measuring procedure
After the cuff has been appropriately positioned on the
arm and connected to the blood pressure monitor, the Pumping
Pressure
measurement can begin:
a) Press the START/STOP button. The pump
begins to inflate the cuff. In the display, the
increasing cuff pressure is continually displayed.
b) After automatically reaching an individual pressure,
the pump stops and the pressure slowly falls. The
cuff pressure is displayed during the measurement.
c) When the device has detected your pulse, the heart
symbol in the display begins to blink.
d) 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.
e) 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.
f) The measurement results are displayed until you
switch the device off. If no button is pressed for 1
minute, the device switches off automatically.

5.5. Irregular Heartbeat Detector
This symbol
indicates that certain pulse irregularities were detected during the measurement. In this
case, the result may deviate from your normal basal
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 Symbol
This instrument is an oscillometric blood pressure monitor device that also analyzes pulse frequency during measurement. The instrument is clinically tested.
If pulse irregularities occur during measurement, the irregular heartbeat symbol
is displayed after the measurement. If the symbol appears more frequently (e.g.
several times per week on measurements performed daily) or if it suddenly
appears more often than usual, 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.
11
5.6. Traffic Light Indicator
The bars on the left-hand edge of the display show you the range within which
the indicated blood pressure value lies. Depending on the height of the bar, the
readout value is either within the normal (green), borderline (yellow) or danger
(orange) range.
The classification is based on standards established by the National Institutes
of Health JNC7, 2003.
Refer to the chart in section 2.2 of this instruction manual for details of the classifications.
The traffic light bar raises according to your measurement.
• If your measurement has 1-2 bars, your measurement is in the green zone, or
“Normal” according to NIH standards.
• If your measurement has three bars, it is in the yellow zone, or “Pre-Hypertension”
according to NIH standards.
• If your measurement has four bars, it is in the light orange “Stage 1 Hypertension”
zone.
• If your measurement has 5-6 bars, it is in the dark orange “Stage 2 Hypertension”
zone.

5.7. Memory – Displaying the last 120 Measurements
At the end of a measurement, this monitor automatically stores each result with date
and time. This unit stores 120 memories for each of 2 users.
Viewing the stored values
With the unit off, press the "M" button. The display first shows "A", then shows an
average of all measurements stored in the unit. Please note: Measurements for
each user are averaged and stored separately. Be certain that you are viewing the measurements for the correct user.
Pressing the "M" button again displays the previous value. To view a particular stored
memory, press and hold the “M” button to scroll to that stored reading.
Memory full
When the memory has stored 120 results a new measured value is stored by overwriting the oldest value.
Clear all values
If you are sure that you want to permanently remove all stored values, hold down the "M" button (the instrument must have been
switched off beforehand) until "CL" appears and then release the
button. If you do not want to clear the values, press the
START/STOP button. To permanently clear the memory, press the
"M" button while "CL" is flashing.
Individual values cannot be cleared.
1
5.8. Discontinuing a Measurement
If it is necessary to interrupt a blood pressure measurement for any
reason (e.g the patient feels unwell), the START/STOP button can
be pressed at any time. The device then immediately lowers the
cuff pressure automatically.
13
5.9. Setting the Medication Reminder
This instrument allows you to set two alarm times at which an alarm signal will then
be triggered. This can be a useful aid, for instance as a reminder to take medication
or to remind you to take your blood pressure at the same time each day.
1. To set an alarm time, press the time button (the
instrument must have been switched off beforehand)
and immediately afterwards the "M" button and hold
both down until the bell symbol appears in the bottom left of the display. Then release both buttons.
The flashing "1" in the display indicates that the first
alarm time can now be set.
2. Press the time button to set the hours – the hours
display flashes and pressing the "M" button allows
you to set the alarm hour. To confirm, press the time
button.
3. The minute display will now flash. The minutes can
be set using the "M" button. To confirm, press the
time button again.
4. The bell symbol will now flash. Use the "M" button to
select whether the alarm time is to be active (bell) or
inactive (crossed-out bell). To confirm, press the time
button.
To set a second alarm time, proceed as above but
if the "1" flashes, press the "M" button to select "2"
and confirm with the time button.
• An active alarm time is indicated by the bell symbol
in the display.
• The alarm sounds at the set time every day.
• To switch-off the alarm when it is sounding, press the
START/STOP button.
• To permanently switch-off the alarm, proceed as
above (steps 1-4) and select the crossed-out bell symbol. This will then disappear from the display.
• The alarm times must be re-entered each time the
batteries are replaced.
14
5.10. Battery Charge Indicator
Batteries almost discharged
When the batteries are approximately 75% used the battery
symbol will flash as soon as the instrument is switched on
(if at least one of the batteries still has some charge).
Although the instrument will continue to measure reliably,
you should obtain replacement batteries.
Batteries discharged– replacements required
When the batteries are discharged, the battery symbol will
flash as soon as the instrument is switched on. You cannot
take any further measurements and must replace the batteries.
1. Open the battery compartment at the back of the instrument by pushing
inward at the two arrows and pulling it out.
2. Replace the batteries – ensure they are correctly connected, as shown on the
symbols in the compartment.
3. The memory retains all values although date and time (and possibly also set
alarm times) must be reset - the year number therefore flashes automatically
after the batteries are replaced.
4. To set date and time, follow the procedure described in Section 4.2.
Which batteries and which procedure?
Use four new, longlife 1.5V AA batteries. Do not use batteries beyond their expiration date. If the monitor is not going to be used for a prolonged period the batteries should be removed.
Using rechargeable batteries
You can also operate this instrument using rechargeable batteries.
• Please use only type "NiMH" reusable batteries!
• If the battery symbol (
) appears, the batteries must be removed and
recharged! They must not remain inside the instrument, as they may become
damaged through total discharge even when switched off. The batteries must
NOT be discharged in the blood pressure monitor! If you do not intend to use
the instrument for a week or more, always remove the rechargeable batteries!
• Recharge these batteries using an external charger and follow manufacturer’s
instructions carefully.
15
5.11. Using the AC Adapter
You may also operate this monitor using the included AC Adapter (output 6V
DC/600 mA with DIN plug).
Use only the included AC Adapter to avoid damaging
the unit.
1. Ensure that the AC adapter and cable are not damaged.
2. Plug the adapter cable into the AC Adapter port
on the blood pressure monitor.
3. Plug the adapter into your electrical outlet.
When the AC adapter is connected, no battery current is consumed.
Note: No power is taken from the batteries while the AC Adapter is connected to
the monitor. If electrical power is interrupted, (e.g., by accidental removal of the
AC adapter from the outlet) the monitor must be reset by removing the plug from
the socket and reinserting the AC adapter connection. Please consult Microlife if
you have any questions regarding the AC adapter by calling 1-800-568-4147.

Other possible errors and their solutions
If problems occur when using the device, the following points should be checked:
Remedy
Malfunction
The display remains blank when the instrument is switched on although the batteries
are in place.
The pressure does not rise although the
pump is running.
The device frequently fails to measure,
or the values measured are too low or high.
Every measurement results in different values, although the device functions normally
and normal values are displayed.
Blood pressure values differ from those
measured by my doctor.
After the instrument has inflated the cuff
the pressure falls very slowly, or not at all.
(No reasonable measurement possible).
18
• Check battery installation or AC
adapter connection is correct and
wall outlet is working.
• If the display is unusual, remove the
batteries and then exchange them for
new ones.
Check polarity.
• Check the connection of the cuff tube
and connect properly.
1. Ensure the cuff fits properly. (see 5.3)
2. Before starting measurement make
sure that the cuff is not too tight and
that clothing is not exerting pressure
on the arm. Take articles of clothing
off if necessary.
3. Measure blood pressure again in
complete peace and quiet.
• Please read the following information
and the points listed under “Common
sources of error”.(5.2) Repeat the
measurement.
• Blood pressure changes constantly.
The observed readings may accu
rately reflect your pressure.
• Record daily values and consult
your doctor.
• Pressure readings in your doctor’s
office may be higher due to anxiety.
• Check cuff connections.
Ensure the unit has not been
tampered with.
8. Care and Maintenance
a) Do not expose the device to either extreme temperatures, humidity, dust or direct sunlight.
b) The cuff contains a sensitive air-tight bubble.
