You are spot on. It is a possible indicator for Atrial Fibrillation or AFIB. If you suspect that you have AFIB, you need to get your doctor to prescribe a digixon product, AFIB is very dibilitating and can cause death. Take care and seek help.... Guy

What does the heart on the monitor means?


The blinking heart symbol indicates that the unit is slowly decreasing the pressure in the wrist cuff. This is when the unit is finding your Diastolic blood pressure. This is a normal symbol on most automatic blood pressure monitors. When a nurse or doctor uses a manual blood pressure cuff and listens to the blood flow, they will record the systolic pressure when they first hear the heart beat. Then they record the diastolic measurement when they can no longer hear the heart beat.

The manual for the KS-7902 is available here: http://pharmasupply.com/wordpress/pdf/wristman .

I hope this helps.

I NEED AN OWNERS MANUAL FOR BA-616W ...GOT IT 2 YRS AGO AND ONLY HAVE THE INSTRUCTION SHEET ..BUT I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ THE NUMBERS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. PLEASE HELP


As a 30 year EMT, I think I can help you.

There's 2 numbers that make up your blood pressure. The top number is called the Systolic pressure. The bottom number is call the Diastolic pressure. When a blood pressure is taken, it's measuring the pressure that the heart is producing when it pumps blood through the arteries. For example, what's considered a normal blood pressure in a healthy individual is in the range of 120/80. Of course age, life style and other health conditions, play a role in what yours may be. A person with High blood pressure or Hypertension would have a blood pressure of over 160 - Systolic and over 90+ Diastolic. 90 is actually the borderline for hypertension. That's why I indicated 90+.

The other reading on your monitor is your heart rate or pulse rate. It's how many beats your heart completes in one minute. It also indicates an irregular heart beat by the showing a small LED window on the left of the screen adjacent to the Systolic pressure reading, It will say IHB. Any movement or shaking or talking during the measurement can result in pulse irregularities. So hold very still when taking your blood pressure. This irregularity by itself is not of much concern, unless it shows up frequently. In which case, you should seek medical advice.

That covers just about all there is to know about what the readings mean. Armed with this, you should be able to effectively monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate and report them to your doctor.

Hope I was able to help you understand how it works and what it's telling you. if so, please let me know, by rating my response to you. Thanks and have a healthy day.

How do you read a wrist tech monitor and what does the number mean?


The wrist monitor, much like ones in doctor's offices, reads your blood pressure and pulse rate.
The large numbers are your blood pressure reading. The Top number is the Systolic and the bottom number is the Diastolic. If you doctor or his nurse has taken your blood pressure and told you what it was, they said for example, 140 over 80, which on your chart would be listed as 140/80. The smaller number at the bottom of the screen is your pulse rate. Some monitors will indicate if the heart beat is regular or irregular. Depending on your age, general health and life style, a normal blood pressure would be in the range of (Systolic) 120 to 130 over (Diastolic) 70 to 80. But, your normal range may be different based on what I said above. Only your personal physician can tell you what yours is or should be.

When using a wrist monitor it must be properly placed on the wrist (1" above the heal of the hand). You must remain very still and try not to talk, until the monitor has completed cycling. Also, having your hand/wrist at heart level, helps to ontain a more accurate reading. Never take readings back to back. Wait at least 2 minutes in between sessions.

If this helped you, please be kind enough to let me know.

It always indicates error on the wrist monitor even though i changed the batteries and place myself in the right position at heart level . is there something wrong with the monitor.


You can try BOTH wrists, not that this should make a HUGE difference, usually it is the actual pressure itself. I would try to use to machine on someone else and make sure that your actual pressure(meaning the amount of blood, rate of flow) can be monitored with a wrist model. Some people are forced to use a arm style..... take care... Guy

What range show my BP be in. 50 year old black


There isn't really a normal blood pressure, there is a continuum of blood pressures among ppl at any age (for example, 50). By age 50, about 1/2 of Americans will have a blood pressure that is higher than what cardiovascular disease prevention guidelines have set as targets.
The goal blood pressure for a 50 year old person without any other medical issues is <140/90. People at higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease have correspondingly lower blood pressure targets. People with kidney disease, diabetes or prediabetes (also known as metabolic syndrome), and those with known cardiovascular disease (heart failure or previous heart attack) should have a target blood pressure of <130.80.

Blood pressure measurements support


There are two positions for taking your blood pressure measurements: Sitting down - Place your elbow on a table. Using a flat object as support, position your wrist at heart level. Your blood pressure measurement will be too low if you hold your hand too high, or too high if you hold your hand too low. Lying down - Lie on your back. Rest your wrist on a support or cushion with the palm side facing up, position your wrist at heart level. On both of the positions you need to open and relax your hand with the palm facing up (closing your hand will cause inaccurate readings). Do not bend your wrist inward, as bending your wrist will cause inaccurate readings. If possible, empty your bladder before measuring your blood pressure, for a more accurate reading.
