What is the Beurer BM 28 HSD Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor?

Beurer BM 28 HSD Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor has a universal cuff that is also suitable for larger upper arm circumferences up to 42 cm. The integrated cuff position control gives you additional peace of mind about the accuracy of the measured blood pressure values during each measurement.

 

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. It’s recommended to measure your blood pressure regularly and always at the same time of day. Measure your blood pressure twice a day: once in the morning after getting up and once in the evening. Avoid taking measurements at stressful times. Do not take a measurement within 30 minutes of eating, drinking, smoking or exercising. Before the initial blood pressure measurement, make sure to rest for about 5 minutes.

 

You can measure your blood pressure on either arm. Some deviations between the values in the right and left arm are perfectly normal. Always perform the measurement on the arm with the higher blood pressure values. Always measure your blood pressure on the same arm.

 

Before taking the measurement, check the fit. The circulation of the arm must not be hindered by tight clothing or similar, with the cuff placed on the upper arm so that the bottom edge is positioned 2-3 cm above the elbow and over the artery. The cuff should be fastened so that two fingers fit under the cuff when it’s closed. Now insert the cuff line into the connection for the cuff connector. Sit in a comfortable upright position when taking the blood pressure measurement. Lean back so that your back is supported. Place your arm on a surface and your feet flat on the ground next to one another. The cuff must be level with your heart. Stay as still as possible during the measurement and do not talk.

 

Start the blood pressure monitor with the START/STOP button. The cuff automatically inflates. The cuff’s air pressure is slowly released. If a tendency for high blood pressure is detected, the cuff re-inflates and the cuff’s pressure is increased again. As soon as a pulse is found, the pulse symbol will be displayed. The cuff position control symbol is displayed throughout the entire measurement. If the cuff is applied too tightly or too loosely, the measurement is cancelled after approx. 5 seconds and the device switches itself off. 

 

The systolic pressure, diastolic pressure and pulse rate measurements are displayed. A symbol in the display also appears which shows you whether you were sufficiently relaxed during the blood pressure measurement or not. You can cancel the measurement at any time by pressing the START/STOP button.

 

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. 

 

Storage information

Store in a cool, dry place out of sight and reach of children.
