Connecting the cuff to the blood pressure monitor
Insert the cuff connector in the hole located on the side of the device. Make sure the connector is properly inserted, to avoid any air leakage.
Avoid squeezing or twisting the connection tube while taking a measurement, to avoid poor inflation of the cuff or measurement errors.
When it is turned off, inserting the cuff connection tube will turn the device on.
Positioning the cuff
The blood pressure monitor has a one-size cuff. It adapts to any arm circumference from 22 to 42 cm. If your arm is too big for this cuff, using a wrist blood pressure monitor may be more suitable for you.
Wrap the cuff around your bare arm, tube downwards, about 2 cm above the elbow. Tighten comfortably (you should be able to insert 2 fingers between the cuff and your arm).
Note - Do not roll up your sleeve to avoid making a tourniquet and distorting the measurement. If your sleeve is very thin, place the cuff on top of it. If you sleeve is a little thicker, take it off.
Measuring in a seated position
- Sit with your feet flat on the floor, without crossing your legs.
- Place your hand, with the palm facing up, on a flat surface such as a table.
Measuring lying down
- Lie on your back and extend your arm alongside your body, with the palm facing up.
- Position the air tube in the centre of your arm, in line with your middle finger.
