GENERAL REMARKS

General remarks on blood pressure and blood pressure measurement

1.

To deflate the cuff quickly, press the “START/STOP” switch.

 

2.

The attached cuff is suitable for wrist circumferences of 13.5-

English

 

should be placed on the inside of your wrist.

 

21.5 cm.

 

3.

When attaching the cuff, the body of a blood pressure monitor

 

4.

Self measurement is not therapy! In no event should you change

 

 

 

the dosage of your medication prescribed by your physician.

 

5.

As preparation for measuring your blood pressure, you should

 

 

urinate and then remain relatively still for 10 to 15 minutes prior to

 

 

measurement.

 

6.

Exercising, eating, drinking, smoking, etc., prior to measurement

 

 

may affect the results.

 

7.

Your blood pressure varies constantly throughout the day.

 

 

Measurements should be taken regularly at the same time each

 

 

day.

 

8.

DO NOT place too much emphasis on the results of one

 

 

measurement. Keep a continuing record of your blood pressure

 

 

variations. A complete picture can only be obtained from a large

 

 

number of readings.

 

9.

Emotional stress tends to cause your blood pressure to rise.

 

To obtain correct blood pressure measurements

1.Take five or six deep breaths and then relax before measuring your blood pressure. If you are tense when taking the measurement, you will not get a valid reading.

2.Your blood pressure will be elevated if you are anxious or irritated, suffering from lack of sleep or constipation, or have just taken some exercise or eaten a meal.

3. Wrap the cuff around your wrist snugly. ( See page 14)

4.DO NOT measure your blood pressure after bathing or drinking.

5.If you feel the need to urinate, do so before measuring your blood pressure.

6.Measure your blood pressure where the room temperature is around 20°C. DO NOT measure your blood pressure when it is too

GENERAL REMARKS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

cold (below 10°C) or too hot (above 40°C) in the room.

 

 

7. DO NOT try to measure your blood pressure immediately after

 

 

drinking coffee or tea or after smoking.

 

 

 

8. Measure your blood pressure when you are relaxed and still. Keep

English

 

 

the center of the cuff at the level of your heart and DO NOT move

 

 

 

 

your arm or talk.

 

 

 

9. DO NOT measure blood pressure when the cuff has been on your

 

 

wrist for a few minutes or more. During this time, your wrist will have

 

 

built up a higher blood pressure and you will not get valid reading.

Definitions and Classifications of Blood Pressure Levels

Measure your blood pressure at the same time each day.

*Your blood pressure changes all the time. This means that data gathered over a long period has far more significance than data from just one measurement. For this reason, you must measure your blood pressure on a daily basis. Ideally, you should measure your blood pressure at the same time each day, wherever possible.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE AND MAINTENANCE

Precautions for use

1.

If you suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure or other

 

 

circulatory disease, consult your physician before using the monitor.

 

2.

If you feel abnormal pressure of the cuff during use or any other

English

 

irregularity, reduce the pressure by immediately switching off the

 

 

 

power or remove the batteries and consult the sales outlet where

 

 

purchased.

 

3.

If you think the measurement is abnormal or if measurement makes

 

 

you feel unwell, discontinue use and consult your physician.

 

4.

Blood pressure measurement may not be possible for anyone with

 

 

a weak pulse or arrhythmia.

 

5.

Repeated blood pressure measurement may cause problems such

 

 

as congestion or swelling in some people.

 

6.

Frequently repeated blood pressure measurements will not give

 

 

accurate results. Allow an interval of about 1 minute between

 

 

measurements.

 

7.

If you suffer from a severe problem with blood circulation in your

 

 

arms, consult your physician before using the monitor. Failure to do

 

 

so could be hazardous to your health.

 

8.

Measurement may not be possible for anyone with insufficient

 

 

blood flow to the area where measurements will be taken or who

 

 

suffers from a frequent irregular heartbeat. Consult your physician

 

 

for advice on whether to use the monitor.

 

9.

DO NOT wrap the cuff around an injured wrist.

 

10. DO NOT wrap the cuff around a wrist in which a drip (intravenous infusion) is inserted, or which is being used for blood transfusion as part of medical treatment. Doing so could result in an injury or a serious accident.

11. DO NOT use the monitor in the vicinity of flammable gases such as those used for anaesthesia. Doing so could ignite the gases and cause an explosion.

12. DO NOT use the monitor in enriched oxygen environments such as a hospital’s hyperbaric chamber or oxygen tent. Doing so could ignite the oxygen and cause a fire.

PRECAUTIONS FOR USE AND MAINTENANCE

 

 

 

 

 

13. DO NOT use mobile phones near the monitor as this could result in

 

 

a malfunction.

 

 

14. If you use a cardiac pacemaker, consult your physician before using

 

 

the monitor.

English

 

 

15. Be sure to use this unit only for measuring blood pressure. DO NOT

 

 

 

 

use it for any other purpose.

 

 

16. DO NOT use this unit on infants.

 

 

17. Blood pressure measurement may not be possible for anyone with

 

 

common arrhythmias such as atrial or ventricular premature beats

 

 

or atrial fibrillation.

Maintenance Precautions

1.DO NOT store the blood pressure monitor in locations exposed to direct sunlight, high temperatures (over 60°C), low temperatures (below -20°C), high relative humidity (over 95%) or excessive amounts of dust.

2.DO NOT drop the blood pressure monitor or subject it to other shocks or vibration.

3.Remove the batteries if the monitor will be left unused for a long period.

4.DO NOT attempt to disassemble the monitor.

5.DO NOT bend the cuff excessively.

6.If the monitor is very dirty, wipe it clean with a cloth moistened with sterilizing alcohol or a neutral detergent. Then wipe it with a dry cloth.

7.NEVER clean the blood pressure monitor with thinners or benzene, as this could damage the monitor.

8.To clean the cuff, wipe it with a moist cloth. Avoid hard rubbing, as this will cause air leakages.
