How to Use Your Monitor

  • 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.

General Health Information about Blood Pressure

  • What is Hypertension?

    Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. The level of blood pressure is established by a part of the brain known as the circulatory center and is regulated by feedback from the central nervous system. It is adjusted by the strength and frequency of the heart rate (pulse) and by the width of the blood vessel walls. The level of arterial blood pressure changes periodically during heart activity:
    During the "blood ejection" (systole) stage, the value is maximal and referred to as the systolic blood pressure value, while at the end of heart's "rest period" (diastole), the value is minimal and referred to as the diastolic blood pressure value. The blood pressure values must lie within certain normal ranges in order to prevent particular diseases.
  • 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.

  • White Coat Hypertension

    White-coat (or office) hypertension refers to blood pressure that rises above its usual level when it is measured in a clinic setting, such as a doctor's office. It’s named for the typical white coat uniform worn by health care providers.

    White-coat hypertension is believed to occur in 20 to 40 percent of patients that are diagnosed as hypertensive. It is very important to regularly monitor blood pressure at home and keep a log of the readings to share with your doctor. This allows your doctor to determine if your high blood pressure is only occurring at the clinic or if you truly have hypertension.

FAQ's

Q: How can I tell if my blood pressure monitor is accurate?
A: The technology used in your new blood pressure monitor meets the highest clinical standards of the British Hypertension Society and American Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). When used correctly, this monitor will provide readings comparable to those taken in your doctor’s office.

Q: Does my blood pressure monitor need to be calibrated?
A: We recommend having the monitor checked for accuracy every two years. To have your blood pressure monitor's accuracy verified, please call customer support at 1-800-568-4147 (Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm, eastern).

Q: Can I use rechargeable batteries with this monitor?
A: Yes.  Please use only type "NiMH" reusable batteries and recharge them using an external charger, following manufacturer's instructions carefully.

Q: Is this blood pressure cuff latex-free?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I take my blood pressure measurement on my left OR right arm?
A: Yes - this monitor will work with either arm.  However, please note that pressures are typically different between the left and right arm, so it's important to always measure using the same arm.

Q: Why are my blood pressure readings higher or lower than at my doctor’s office?
A: Many people experience what is called “White Coat Hypertension” when having blood pressure measured by a doctor or clinician. Discuss the possibility of White Coat Hypertension with your doctor. Also note normal pressure fluctuations throughout the day.

Q: My blood pressure varies throughout the day. How do I know which is my true blood pressure?
A: The average of several results, obtained over several days under comparable conditions, represents your individual blood pressure. It is important to measure your blood pressure consistently and regularly to better manage your heart health.   

Q: Can I use this blood pressure monitor during pregnancy?
A: Yes, this Microlife monitor has been validated as accurate for use under special conditions such as preeclampsia (hypertension during pregnancy) and end-stage renal disease.

Q: Is a larger cuff available?
A: The cuff included with the monitor is sized M-L (8.7 - 18.1").  A larger size (L-XL, 12.6 - 20.5") is available by calling customer support at 1-800-568-4147 (Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm, eastern).

Q: Is the BP Analyzer Software available to download?
A: Yes, this PC compatible software is available to download at www.microlifeusa.com/bpsoftware.  For best results using the software, please ensure that time and date is set on the monitor prior to using it, that the monitor is plugged in to the PC prior to launching the installation of the software, and that you select the correct user memory zone prior to taking a reading and attaching the monitor to the PC for download.
