Omron Blood Pressure Monitor Cuffs

Before you purchase a home blood pressure monitor, it’s important to determine the best cuff size for you. To determine your arm size, use a cloth measuring tape and measure the circumference of your left upper arm midway between your elbow and shoulder. Ensuring that the blood pressure cuff is neither too tight nor too loose will help ensure the most accurate readings providing you a more accurate picture of your heart’s health.   Different type of Omron cuffs:  

D-Ring Cuff: A d-ring cuff is a standard type of blood pressure cuff that you would usually see in your doctor’s office. It is a cuff where the user loops one end of the cuff through a metal ring, then fastens it to the arm. D-ring cuffs come in different sizes of small, standard and large. It is important to pick out the right size cuff based on your individual arm circumference. Please see the questions in this Omron FAQ regarding the different types of cuffs and how to measure your arm circumference.   Expandable Cuff: The Omron ComFit Cuff is a pre-formed upper arm cuff that expands to fit both regular and large sized arms (upper arm circumferences between 9 and 17 inches). It is designed to ensure more comfortable, accurate readings.   Wrist Cuff: A wrist cuff is similar to an upper arm cuff; however you can wrap it around your wrist instead of your upper arm.

Apply the cuff using the following directions. First, make sure you have removed any tight-fitting clothing from your left arm. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. The bottom of the cuff should be about one-half inch above your elbow. Turn your arm so your palm is facing up. Adjust the cuff around your arm so that the tubing runs down the center of your arm. Secure the cuff so it stays in place. D-Ring Cuff: You should be able to fit one finger between the cuff and your arm. This space is imperative for an accurate reading because Omron’s digital blood pressure monitors use the oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement that detects your blood’s movement through your brachial artery and converts the movements into a digital reading. ComFit Cuff: The cuff should be wrapped tightly around the arm. If the cuff slips or easily turns, the cuff should be tightened. If the cuff is wrapped too loose or too tight, you may get an inaccurate reading of error message. For more detailed directions, please refer to the instruction manual for the specific model. How do I assemble and apply the d-ring cuff?

When the cuff is assembled correctly, the hook material will be on the outside of the cuff loop and the metal d-ring will not touch your skin. If the cuff is not assembled, pass the end of the cuff furthest from the tubing through the metal d-ring to form a loop. The smooth cloth should be on the inside of the cuff loop.

  1. Remove tight fitting clothing from your upper arm.
  2. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Rest your left arm on a table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart. Turn the palm of your hand upward.
  3. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. the bottom of the cuff should be approximately ½ inch above the elbow. The cuff tab should lie over the brachial artery on the inside of the arm. The cuff tube should run down the center of the arm even with the middle finger.
  4. Secure the cuff around your arm using the cloth closure. Pull the cuff so that the top and bottom edges are tightened evenly around your arm.
  5. Make sure the cuff is wrapped firmly in place. You should be able to fit your index finger between the cuff and your arm easily.
  6. Relax your arm and place your elbow on the table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart.
  7. Be sure there are no kinks in the air tubing.
