Avoid eating, drinking, smoking, or exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement. You should also try to measure your blood pressure at the same time each day. Measurement should be taken in a quiet place and you should be in a relaxed, seated position. Always measure your blood pressure on the same wrist.
How to Apply the Wrist Cuff
1. Roll up your sleeve so that the monitor is in direct contact with skin. Do not apply over clothing. Make sure that your sleeve is not too tight and does not constrict the flow of blood in your arm.
2. Place the wrist cuff over your left wrist with your left thumb facing upward.
3. Hold the bottom part of the wrist cuff and wrap it around the wrist while pulling so that it fits comfortably.
Make sure that the wrist cuff does not cover the protruding part of the wrist bone (ulna) on the outside of the wrist. Unless the wrist cuff is wrapped securely around the wrist, it may not be possible to take correct measurements.
How to Take a Reading
1. Sit comfortably, hold your arm across your chest and relax.
2. Press the START/STOP button.
3. Hold your arm across your chest so that your fingers are touching the opposite shoulder. Align the wrist cuff with the level of your heart and gently support your left arm with your right hand. Do not place your right hand on the cuff itself.
4. After the monitor has detected your blood pressure and pulse rate, the cuff automatically deflates and your blood pressure and pulse rate are displayed.
