How it Works:
The method of measurement that this automatic blood pressure monitor uses is called the oscillometric method. This monitor detects your blood's movement through the artery in your wrist and converts the movements into a digital reading. The need for other heart monitoring instruments, such as a stethoscope or pulse oximeter is not required.
For Optimal Results:
Avoid smoking, eating, taking medication, drinking alcohol or physical activity 30 minutes before taking a reading. Rest 15 minutes prior to taking a blood pressure reading.
Remove any jewelry or constrictive clothing that may interfere with the cuff placement.
You should be sitting in a comfortable seat with your feet flat on the floor.
Use your left arm. Place your left arm straight in front of you with your palm facing upwards.
