BLOOD PRESSURE MONITOR
This manual and product are not meant to be a substitute for advice provided by
your doctor or other medical professional. You are not to use the information
contained herein, or this product for diagnosing or treating a health problem or
prescribing any medication. If you have or suspect that you have a medical
problem, promptly consult your healthcare provider.
The device is designed for non-invasive measurements and monitoring of adults’
arterial blood pressure. It measures human's systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood
pressure and heart rate on the arm by oscillometric measurement method.
The device is recommended for use by people over the age of 18 and is for home
use and not clinical use.
Blood Pressure Monitor Intended Use
To operate the device properly and get the best result from it, please read the
Instruction Manual thoroughly before you begin measuring and keep it carefully
so that you can access and consult it at any time.
1-1. What is blood pressure ?
1. About Blood Pressure
Having one's blood pressure measured by a doctor in a hospital or a clinic, and a
group health checks, tends to stimulate nervousness in the subject and may even
create high blood pressure, blood pressure also varies in accordance with a variety of
conditions and so judgment is not possible on the basis of a single measurement.
The blood pressure measured first thing in the morning after getting up, before taking
any food and with the subject still, is known as the fundamental blood pressure. In
practice it is rather difficult to record the fundamental blood pressure, but to come as
near as possible to measuring the blood pressure in an environment that is close to
this is why it is useful to take the measurement at home.
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force of blood flowing against the walls of
the arteries. Arterial blood pressure is constantly changing during the course of the
cardiac cycle. The highest pressure in the cycle is called the systolic blood pressure
and the lowest is the diastolic blood pressure. Both of pressure readings, the systolic
and the diastolic, are necessary to enable a physician to evaluate the status of a
patient's blood pressure. Many factors such as physical activity, anxiety or the time of
day can influence your blood pressure. Blood pressure is typically low in the morning
and increases from the afternoon to the evening. It is lower in the summer and higher
in the winter.
1-2. Why is it useful to measure blood pressure at home?
A. WHO blood pressure classiﬁcations
Standards for assessment of high or low
blood pressure without regard to age, have
been established by the World Health
Organization (WHO), as shown in the chart.
140 150 160 170 180
* Figure No.1
B. Variations in blood pressure
* Figure No.2
Individual blood pressures vary greatly
both on a daily and a seasonal basis.
These variations are even more pronounced in hypertense patients.
(Hypertense: means a person who has high blood pressure symptom.)
Normally the blood pressure rises while at work
and is at its lowest during sleeping period. The
graph below illustrated the variations in blood
pressure over a whole day with measurement
taken every five minutes. (The thick line
represents sleep. The rise in blood pressure at 4
PM <A in the graph> and 12 PM <B in the
graph> correspond to an attack of pain.)
● Please rest for at least 5 ~ 10 minutes before taking the measurement.
● To allow your blood vessels to return to the condition prior to taking the
measurement, please wait at least 3 ~ 5 minutes between measurements. You
may need to adjust the wait time according to your personal physiological situation.
● If you have one of the circulatory problems as arteriosclerosis, diabetes, liver
disease, kidney disease, severe hypertension, peripheral circulation......, please
consult your doctor or healthcare professional before using the devices.
● Blood pressure measurements should be interpreted by a physician or trained
health professional who is familiar with one's medical history. By using the unit
regularly and recording the results for the physician to interpret, one can keep
physician informed of the continuing trends in one's blood pressure.
● Wrap the cuff snugly around your arm, the cuff must be at the same level as your
● Do not move the unit during measurement, or accurate measurement can not be
● Take measurement in a relaxed position without talking.
2. Important information before use of the unit
● Do not wrap the cuff over jacket / sweater sleeve, or measurement cannot be done.
● Keep in mind that blood pressure naturally varies from time to time throughout the
day and is affected by lots of different factors such as smoking, alcohol
consumption, medication, and physical activities.
● Blood pressure measurements taken with the unit are equivalent to those obtained
by a trained observer using thecuff / stethoscope auscultation method and are
within the accuracy limits prescribed by the American National Standard for
Electronic or Automated Sphygmomanometers.
● Wait 30 ~ 45 minutes before measurement if you have just consumed caffeinated
beverages or smoked cigarettes.
When the low battery symbol appears on the display, please change the
Replace all the batteries with new ones and do not mix new and old batteries.
Do not mix alkaline, standard
(carbon-zinc) or rechargeable
(cadmium) batteries either. It may
shorten the battery life or cause the
device to malfunction.
Remove the battery cover at the back
of the unit and insert 4 pieces AA alkaline batteries into battery compartment.
Make sure the polarities “+” and “–“ ends are properly positioned.

5-1. Press your brachial artery by two fingers approximately 1 inch
above the elbow on the inside of your left arm.
5-2. Determine where your strongest pulse is. Slide the end of arm
cuff furthest from the tube through the metal ring to a loop.
The smooth cloth should be on the inside of the cuff.
5-3. If the cuff is located correctly, the Velcro will be on the outside
of the cuff and metal ring will not touch your skin.

around your arm.
5-6. When the cuff is positioned properly, press the Velcro firmly
against the pile side of the cuff.
5-7. Sit on a chair and place your arm on the table so that the cuff is
at the same level as your heart.
5-8. Relax your arm and turn your arm upward.

6-4. Storing, recalling and erasing measurement data:
A. Storing data:
After each measurement, the systolic and diastolic pressure, heart rate with the
time and date will be automatically stored. The monitor features a 3 zone memory
capability. Each memory zone holds the last 40 measurements, replacing the
oldest data with new one.
B. Recalling data:
a. Press "SET" button to select memory zone.
b. Press "MEMORY" button to enter Memory Mode. The average of last 3
measurement data will first appear on the display.
C. Erasing data:
a. Press "SET" button to select the memory zone (1, 2 or 3), then press
b. Press and hold "MODE" and "SET" buttons simultaneously, all stored data,
including the average reading, in the selected memory zone will be erased.
c. To confirm the data has been erased, press "MEMORY" button, no data
(except month, date, time and memory zone number) should appear.
● If there is no data in the selected memory zone, nothing (except month, date,
time and memory zone) will appear on the display.
● If there is 1 data in the selected memory zone , the measurement data will
appear on the display.
● If there are 2 data in the selected memory zone, the average of the 2 data will
appear on the display.
When taking repeat measurements, make sure to select the same memory
zone so that the measurements are recorded in the appropriate memory.
If the cuff does not stop inflating, remove the cuff at once.
