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)

Sitting cross-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. Using the Unit

Important:

• If your systolic or diastolic pressure is outside the standard range, the heartbeat symbol will blink when the measurement result is displayed.

Recent research suggests that the following values can be used as a guide to high blood pressure for measurements taken at home.

Systolic Blood Pressure

Above 135 mmHg

 

 

Diastolic Blood Pressure

Above 85 mmHg

 

 

This criteria is for home blood pressure measurement.

For professional office blood pressure measurement criteria, please refer to Chapter 9.

• Your blood pressure monitor includes an irregular

 

heartbeat feature. Irregular heartbeats can influence

 

the results of the measurement. The irregular

 

heartbeat algorithm automatically determines if the

 

measurement is usable or needs to be repeated. If

 

the measurement results are affected by irregular

 

heartbeats but the result is valid, the result is shown

 

together with the irregular heartbeat icon. If the irregular heartbeats

 

cause the measurement to be invalid, no result is shown. If the

 

irregular heartbeat symbol (

) is shown after you have taken a

EN

measurement, repeat the measurement. If the irregular heartbeat

 

icon is shown frequently, please make your doctor aware of it.

 

29

3. Using the Unit

What is Irregular Heartbeat?

An irregular heartbeat is a heartbeat rhythm that varies by more than 25% from the average heartbeat rhythm detected while the unit is measuring the systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

If such an irregular rhythm is detected more than twice during measurement, the irregular heartbeat symbol ( ) appears on the symbol when the measurement results are displayed.

Normal Heartbeat

Pulse Blood pressure

Irregular Heartbeat

Short Long

Pulse Blood pressure

What is Arrhythmia?

A heartbeat is stimulated by electrical signals that cause the heart to contract.

Arrhythmia is a condition where the heartbeat rhythm is abnormal due to flaws in the bio-electrical system that drives the heartbeat. Typical symptoms are skipped heartbeats, premature contraction, an abnormally rapid (tachycardia) or slow (bradycardia) pulse. This can be caused by heart disease, aging, physical predisposition, stress, lack of sleep, fatigue etc. Arrhythmia can only be diagnosed by a doctor through a special examination.

Whether the appearance of the irregular heartbeat symbol ( ) in the results indicates arrhythmia or not can only be determined by an examination and diagnosis by your doctor.

If the irregular heartbeat symbol ( ) is shown frequently, please make your doctor aware of it. Conducting self-diagnosis and treatment based on measurement results is dangerous. Be sure to follow the instructions of your doctor.

9.Some Useful Information about Blood Pressure

9.Some Useful Information about Blood Pressure

What is Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is a measure of the force of blood flowing against the walls of the arteries. Arterial blood pressure is constantly changing during the course of the heart's cycle.

The highest pressure in the cycle is called the Systolic Blood Pressure; the lowest is the Diastolic Blood Pressure.

Both pressure readings, the Systolic and Diastolic, are necessary to enable a doctor to evaluate the status of a patient's blood pressure.

Why is it a Good Thing to Measure Blood Pressure at Home?

Having your blood pressure measured by a doctor can cause anxiety which is itself a cause of high blood pressure. As a variety of conditions affect blood pressure, a single measurement may not be sufficient for an accurate diagnosis.

Many factors such as physical activity, anxiety, or the time of day, can influence your blood pressure. Thus it is best to try and measure your blood pressure at the same time each day, to get an accurate indication of any changes in blood pressure. Blood pressure is typically low in the morning and increases from afternoon to evening. It is lower in the summer and higher in the winter.

Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) and measurements are written with the systolic pressure before the diastolic e.g. A blood pressure written as 140/90, is referred to as 140 over 90 mmHg.
