General Remarks on blood pressure measurement
• If the cuff is to be deflated quickly, depress “POWER” switch.
• The attached cuff is suited for a wrist circumstance of 13.5cm to
• When attaching the cuff, the body of a blood pressure monitor should be placed on the inside of your wrist.
• Self measurement is no therapy! In no case may you change the dosage of medication prescribed by your physician.
• In operation for blood pressure measurement, you should urinate and should remain relatively still for 10 to 15 minutes prior to measurement.
• Exercise, eating and drinking, smoking, etc., prior to measurement may affect the results.
• The blood pressure varies constantly throughout the day. Mea­surement should be made regularly at the same time each day.
• Do NOT be impressed by the results of one measurement. Keep a record of blood pressure variations. Many readings tell a story.
• Emotional stress may tend to cause pressure to rise.
For proper measurement of blood pressure
• Take a deep breath five or six time and then relax before measur­ing blood pressure. If you are tense when taking the measure­ment, you will not get a valid reading.
• Blood pressure will be elevated when you are in a worrisome or irritated state, suffering from lack of sleep or constipation, or after exercise or a meal.
• Putting on the cuff is one of the most important tasks for ensuring proper measurement of blood pressure. wrist and tighten it so that one finger may be inserted between the cuff and arm.
• Do NOT measure blood pressure after bathing or drinking.
• When you feel like relieving yourself, you should do so before measuring blood pressure.
• Measure blood pressure where the room temperature is about 20˚C. Do NOT measure blood pressure when it is too cold (below 10˚C) or too hot (above 40˚C) in the room.
• Do NOT measure blood pressure immediately after drinking cof­fee or tea or smoking.
• Measure blood pressure with a relaxed and quiet posture. Keep the center of the cuff at the level of your heart, and do NOT move your arm or talk during measurement.
• Do NOT keep on measuring so many times, as your arm will have built up congestion of blood, and you will not get a valid reading.

Precautions for use
• If you suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure or other cir­culatory disease, please consult your doctor first.
• If you feel abnormal pressure of the cuff during use or any other irregularity, reduce the pressure by immediately switching off the power or removing the batteries and consult the sales outlet where purchased.
• If you think the measured value is abnormal or if measuring makes you feel unwell, discontinue use and consult your doctor.
• Measurement of blood pressure may not be possible for someone with a weak pulse or arrhythmia.
• Congestion, swelling, etc. may occur in some people.
• If blood pressure is measured repeatedly, an accurate result will not be achieved. An interval of about 10 minutes should be al­lowed.
• The memory is erased if the batteries are removed for replace­ment, etc. and a record should be kept of any necessary data.
Precautions for maintenance
• Do NOT store the blood pressure monitor where it will be exposed to direct sunlight, high temperature (over 60˚C), low temperature (below –20˚C), high relative humidity (over 95%) or in a dusty place.
• Do NOT expose the blood pressure monitor to under force or vi­bration, or drop it.
• Remove the battery/batteries when not in use for a long period.
• Do NOT disassemble the apparatus.
• Do NOT bend the cuff or air hose unnecessarily.
• NEVER wipe the blood pressure monitor with thinner or benzene, as they may damage it.
• When the monitor is very dirty, wipe it clean with a cloth moist­ened with Sterilizing alcohol or a neutral detergent, and then wipe it with a dry cloth. Do NOT use thinner or benzene.
