How to use this product
Always use this blood pressure monitor exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. Start by exposing your wrist and ensure that the circulation of the arm is not hindered by tight clothing or similar. Place the cuff on the inside of your wrist and fasten it with the hook-and-loop fastener so that the upper end of the display is approx. 1 cm below the heel of your hand. The cuff must be fitted tightly around the wrist, but must not constrict. Blood pressure may vary between the right and left arm, which may mean that the measured blood pressure values are different. Always perform the measurement on the same arm.
Before the initial blood pressure measurement, make sure to always rest for about 5 minutes otherwise deviations can occur. You can take the measurement while sitting or lying down. To take your blood pressure, make sure you are sitting comfortably with your arms and back leaning on something. Do not cross your legs. Place your feet flat on the ground and make sure to support your arm and bend it. Always make sure that the cuff is at heart level. Relax your arm and the palm of your hand. To avoid falsifying the measurement, it is important to remain still during the measurement and not to speak.
Press the START/STOP button to start the blood pressure monitor . All displays will illuminate briefly. The last measured value is displayed and the blood pressure monitor automatically begins the measurement after 3 seconds. You can cancel the measurement at any time by pressing the START/STOP button . As soon as a pulse is found, the pulse symbol will be displayed. Systolic pressure, diastolic pressure and pulse measurements are displayed. Press the START/STOP button to switch off the blood pressure monitor. The measurement is then stored in the selected user memory. If you forget to turn off the device, it will switch off automatically after approx. 1 minute. Wait for at least 1 minute before taking another measurement.
What do blood pressure results mean?
Your blood pressure reading will show a top number and a bottom number. The top number is your systolic blood pressure, the highest level your blood pressure reaches when your heart beats and pumps blood around your body.
The bottom number is your diastolic blood pressure, the lowest level your blood pressure reaches as your heart relaxes between each beat. Your reading will be measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) - the ideal blood pressure reading is between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg.
Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children.
