How To Use.:
Before You Begin
For optimal results, please ensure you avoid eating and smoking as well as all forms of exertion directly before measurements. These factors influence the measurement results.
Also, compare measurements at the same time of day, since blood pressure changes during the course of the day (as much as 20-40 mmHg).
Easy as 1-2-3
1. Connect the cuff tube securely to the port on the side of the blood pressure monitor.
2. Wrap cuff onto left arm, aligned with the brachial artery.
3. Press start and remain still during your measurement
Keys to Proper Cuff Fit
Wrap cuff onto left arm as shown on bare skin 1/2 - 3/4 above elbow. Align artery mark and tubing to brachial artery (runs along inner arm). TIP: Align artery mark / red stripe on cuff with your pinky finger!
Tighten the cuff to be snug, but not too tight. You should be able to fit 2 fingers between the cuff and your arm.

Understanding What Your Reading Means
These standards for assessing high blood pressure in adults have been established by the National Institutes of Health JNC7, 2003.
Blood Pressure Fluctuations
Blood Pressure is constantly fluctuating throughout the day. It is important to measure your blood pressure at the same times each day to more accurately monitor your readings. Your blood pressure varies greatly on a daily and seasonal basis. It changes throughout one's lifetime. It is not uncommon for systolic pressure to vary by 40mmHg or more throughout the course of a single day!
While generally not as volatile, diastolic pressure can still vary significantly. In hypertensive individuals, variations are even more pronounced. Normally, blood pressure is at its lowest during sleep and rises in the morning and throughout the day. The chart illustrates the fluctuations that could occur in a typical day.
