1.1 Display symbols
Irregular Heartbeat Symbol (

When the monitor detects an irregular rhythm two or more times during the measurement, the irregular heartbeat symbol will appear on the display with the measurement values. An irregular heartbeat rhythm is defined as a rhythm that is 25% less or 25% more than the average rhythm detected while the monitor is measuring the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. If the irregular heartbeat symbol displays with your measurement results, we recommend you consult your physician. Follow the directions of your physician.

Movement Error Symbol (

The movement error symbol is displayed if you move your body during the measurement. Please remove the arm cuff, and wait 2 – 3 minutes. Take another measurement, remain still during measurement.

Classification of BP (Blood Pressure)

ACC/AHA 2017 Hypertension guidelines define categories of BP in adults as below: Categories of BP in Adults* 

  • Individuals with Systolic BP and Diastolic BP in 2 categories should be designated to the higher BP category.

BP indicates blood pressure (based on an average of ≥ 2 careful readings obtained on ≥ 2 occasions). Source: ACC/AHA 2017 High Blood Pressure Clinical Practice Guideline Warning: NEVER diagnose or treat yourself based on your readings. ALWAYS consult with your physician.

1.2 Blood Pressure Measurement Tips

To help ensure an accurate reading, follow these directions:

  • Stress raises blood pressure. Avoid taking measurements during stressful times.
  • Measurements should be taken in a quiet place.
  • It is important to take measurements at the same times each day. Taking measurements in the morning and in the evening is recommended.
  • Remember to have a record of your blood pressure and pulse readings for your physician. A single measurement does not provide an accurate indication of your true blood pressure. You need to take and record several readings over a period of time.


  • Avoid bathing, drinking alcohol or caffeine, smoking, exercising and eating for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement.
  • Rest for at least 5 minutes before taking a measurement.

2. Preparation

2.1 Battery Installation
  1. Remove the battery cover.
  2. Insert 4 “AA” batteries as indicated in the battery compartment.
  3. Replace the battery cover.


  • When the low battery symbol ( ) appears on the display, turn the monitor off, then replace all batteries at the same time. Long life alkaline batteries are recommended.
  • The measurement values continue to be stored in memory even after the batteries are replaced.
  • Disposal of used batteries should be carried out in accordance with local regulations.

3. Using the Monitor

3.1 Applying the Arm Cuff

Caution: Remove tight-fitting, thick clothing from your arm while taking a measurement. 

  1. Insert the air plug into the air jack securely.
  2. Wrap the arm cuff firmly in place around your left upper arm. The bottom edge of the arm cuff should be 0.5 inch (1 to 2 cm) above the elbow. Air tube is on the inside of your arm and aligned with your middle finger.
  3. Secure closed with the fabric fastener.


  • When you take a measurement on the right arm, the air tube will be at the side of your elbow. Be careful not to rest your arm on the air tube.
  • The blood pressure can differ between the right arm and the left arm, and the measured blood pressure values can be different. OMRON recommends to always use the same arm for measurement. If the values between both arms differ substantially, please check with your physician which arm to use for your measurements.
3.2 How to Sit Correctly

To take a measurement, you need to be relaxed and comfortably seated, under comfortable room temperature. Avoid bathing, drinking alcohol or caffeine, smoking, exercising or eating 30 minutes before taking a measurement.

  • Sit in a chair with your legs uncrossed and feet flat on the floor.
  • Sit with your back and arm supported.
  • The arm cuff should be placed on your arm at the same level as your heart, with the arm resting comfortably on a table.
3.3 Taking a Measurement
