Before using the unit

Introduction

Introduction

Thank you for purchasing the OMRON i-C10Intellisense Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor.

The OMRON i-C10Intellisense is a fully automatic blood pressure monitor, operating on the oscillometric principle. It measures your blood pressure and pulse rate simply and quickly. For comfortable controlled inflation without the need for pressurepre-settingor reinflation the device uses its advanced “Intellisense” technology.

The monitor stores measurement results for two people and features morning and evening averages. The auto mode allows for three consecutive measurements with timed intervals for an average reading.

Please read this instruction manual thoroughly before using the unit. For specific information about your own blood pressure, CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR.

2. Slide the battery cover in the

Battery Cover

direction of the arrow while

 

pressing the ribbed part of the

 

cover.

 

3. Install or replace fourAAsize batteries so that the + (positive) and - (negative) polarities match the polarities indicated on the battery compartment.

2. Preparation

Battery Life & Replacement

If the battery low symbol () appears on the display, replace all four batteries at the same time.

-When the battery low symbol () starts to blink, you will still be able to use the unit for a short while. You should replace the batteries with new ones ahead of time.

-When the symbol () remains lit, the batteries are exhausted. You should replace the batteries with new ones at once.Turn the unit off before replacing the batteries.

Remove the batteries if the unit will not be used for three months or more.

If the batteries have been removed for more than 30 seconds, the Date/Time setting will need to be reset. See Chapter 2.2 for details.

Dispose of batteries according to applicable local regulations.

Four new AAalkaline batteries will last for approximately

 

1400 measurements, when used to take six measurements a day.

EN

Since the supplied batteries are for monitoring use only, they may have

 

a shorter life and not last for 1400 measurements.

2. Preparation

2.2Setting the Date and Time

Your blood pressure monitor automatically stores up to 84 individual measurement values with the date and time.

To make use of the memory and average values functions:

Set the unit to the correct date and time before taking a measurement for the first time.

If the batteries have been removed for more than 30 seconds, the Date/Time setting will need to be reset.

1. When the O/I START button is pressed to turn the unit on for the first time after inserting batteries, the year digits (2007) will flash on the display.

2. Press the MEMORY button () to advance the digits one at a time.

Notes:

The range for the year setting is 2007 to 2030. If the year reaches 2030, it will return to 2007.

If you hold down the MEMORY

button (), the digits will advance rapidly.

3. Press the SET button to confirm the setting when the desired number appears on the display.

The year is set and the month digits flash on the display.

12

2. Preparation

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the month.

The month is set and the day digits flash on the display.

5. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the day.

The day is set and the hour digits flash on the display.

6. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the hour.

The hour is set and the minutes digits flash on the display.

7. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the minutes.

2. Preparation

Notes on Adjusting the Date and Time Setting

If you need to adjust the date and time for some reason, or if the date and time has been reset after replacing the batteries, adjust the date and time between 10:00 and 18:59. This will avoid problems with morning and evening weekly averages stored in memory.

To adjust the date or time at a later stage, start the unit in the off position. Follow the steps below.

1.Press and hold the SET button.

The auto mode symbol and the current setting (on oroFF) will appear on the display for the user ID selected.

If the year is not flashing, press the SET button once or twice until the year is flashing.

The year flashes on the display.

2.Refer to Chapter 2.2.2 to start setting the date and time.

With this manual setting of date and time the unit needs to be manually shut off. It will not automatically turn off after the minutes have been set.

14

2. Preparation

Notes:

Please ensure that the date and time have been set correctly so that the weekly averages will be displayed correctly. If the Date/Time settings have been accidentally set incorrectly, press the SET button to circle through the settings in order to adjust to their correct values.

In the case where the time displays incorrectly after a long period of non-useof the unit, reset the Date and Time (refer to Chapter 2.2 for instructions on setting the clock values). Erase the recorded values when reusing the unit (refer to Chapter 3.5 for directions on erasing the recorded values).

3.1How to Sit Correctly When Taking a Measurement

You can take a measurement on either your left or right arm.

Notes:

Measurements should be taken in a quiet place and you should be in a relaxed, seated position. Make sure that the room is not too hot or cold.

Avoid eating, smoking, or exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement.

Do not move or talk during measurement.

Correct

Posture

Sit upright with your back straight.

Remove tight fitting clothing from your upper arm, and any thick clothing such as a sweater.

Do not place the cuff over thick clothes and do not roll up your sleeve if it is too tight.

Place your arm on a table so that the cuff will be at the samelevel as your heart.

The gap between the chair and the top of the table should be between 25cm to 30cm.

16

3. Using the Unit

Notes:

Correct posture during measurement is necessary to get accurate results.

You should also try to measure your blood pressure at the same time each day. (Within 1 hour after waking up is recommended.)

Incorrect Posture

Arched back (leaning forwards)

Sittingcross-legged

Sitting on a sofa or at a low table so that you tend to lean forward

These situations could lead to higher blood pressure values due to strain or the arm cuff being lower than the heart.

If the arm cuff is at a lower position than your heart use cushions etc., to adjust the height of your arm.

3.2Applying the Arm Cuff

You can wrap the cuff either on your right or left arm.

Remove tight-fittingclothing from your upper arm.

• Do not place the cuff over thick clothes and do not roll up your sleeve if it is too tight.

Taking Measurements on the Left Arm

1.Insert the air plug into the air jack (inside the Cuff Compartment of the device).

The cuff must be fully deflated when it is inserted into the air jack.

2.Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the floor and place your arm on a table so that the cuff will be at the same level as your heart.

4. Turn the palm of your hand upward.

5.Apply the cuff to your upper arm so that the blue strip is centred on the middle of your inner arm and points down the inside of the arm. The air tube should run down the inside of your forearm and be in line with your middle finger.

The bottom of the cuff should be approximately 1 to 2 cm above the elbow.

3.Using the Unit

6.When the cuff is positioned correctly, close the fabric fastener FIRMLY.

Notes:

Make certain the cuff fits snugly around your arm.

The cuff should make good contact with your skin. You should be able to fit your index finger between the cuff and your arm easily, so you can pull the cuff off and on.

Make sure that there are no kinks in the air tubing.

Taking Measurements on the Right Arm

Please note the following points when applying the cuff to your right arm. Apply the cuff so that the air tube is at the side of your elbow.

Notes:

Be careful not to rest your arm on the air tube, or otherwise restrict the flow of air to the cuff.

Apply the arm cuff so that no part of the cuff is positioned over the elbow joint. The cuff should be 1 to 2 cm above the elbow.

If used 2 times per day, the cuff will last for 3 years.

The blood pressure can differ between the right arm and the left arm, and therefore also the measured blood pressure values can be different. Omron recommends to always use the same arm for measurement. If the values between the two arms differ substantially, please check with your physician which arm to use for your measurement.
