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.

How do i adjust the start up pressure to 180?


If you move your arm or wrist during and after the cuff has inflated, the device will "bump" itself up to start reading at a higher number. Make sure you hold your wrist at about the same elevation as your heart, in order to get the correct blood pressure readings.

My wrist cuff monitor seems to be reading low. Is there a way to get it checked or calibrated?


The next time you go to your doctor, take the wrist cuff monitor with you. As they always do, the nurse or doctor will check you vital signs. After they do that and they've told you what your blood pressure and pulse readings are, correctly place the cuff monitor on your wrist and check you BP and Pulse with it. Compare the reading from the cuff monitor to what your doctor got. If it's within a few points, it's no big deal. If it's way off, than there's a problem with the cuff.

Remember, whenever using a cuff monitor, always keep your wrist at heart level for the most accurate reading. Once it's activated, remain completely still and don't move your wrist, until it has finished cycling.

I doubt in correctness of reading,my age 58


If you are doubting the Blood Pressure and Pulse readings, there must be a reason for these doubts. But, you failed to explain why you doubted it. Does the BP reading seem unusually high or low? Is the pulse rate, what you expected it to be? Keep in mind, age doesn't always play a huge role in hypertension. It's your general overall health, eating habits, smoking, drinking, etc. In other words, you overall life style, as well as your family's medical history.

These wrist monitors are fairly accurate if applied to the wrist correctly, you keep your wrist at heart level and you don't move during the time that monitor is operating.

If you have doubts, take the monitor with you to your next doctor's appointment. They will probably check your BP with an arm cuff. After they do that, use your wrist monitor correctly and compare it to what the reading was with the doctor's reading. One or two points difference is not a big deal. More than that is.

Hope this helps.

Always shows to high pressure pulse to low


Be sure that you are applying the wrist monitor properly. It should be placed on the wrist at least 1/2" from the up the wrist from the heel of the hand. Tighten it snugly and inflate. Remain very still, until the process has been completed. Also, keeping your wrist at heart level, will provide a more accurate reading. If you doubt the reading you get, switch to the other arm/wrist and take it again. If you get the same thing, it's probably accurate..

Why wont my Omron Blood Pressure Monitor work?


I contacted the manufacturer here is the response with information to contact them yourself if this does not help.


I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue with your readings and would be happy to assist you in determining where the problem lies.
Initially, I would like to provide you with some basic user information on factors that could impact the quality of your readings enough to cause the E error message you have been receiving. I will follow that with some critical steps that you must take in order to obtain a reading on your Omron unit.
User technique is important for reliable measurement results. Listed below are the common causes why you may get an erroneous reading:
Cuff Size - Measure the circumference of your wrist. If the incorrect cuff is used, you may get an inaccurate reading or error messages, if not at the first reading, then after a short period of use because the cuff bladder will be damaged. To determine your wrist size, measure your wrist approximately ½” above your wrist bone using a cloth tape measure. Wrap the tape measure evenly around your wrist. Do not pull the tape tight.
*The cuff that came with your unit is appropriate for wrist circumferences of 5 ¼ to 8 ½ inches. If your wrist circumference is not within that range, your readings will be inaccurate or you may receive error messages.
Cuff Application - Make sure you are wrapping the cuff around your wrist in the correct position. The cuff should be wrapped snugly around your wrist. If your wrist monitor can be used on either the left or right wrist, make sure you have set the monitor to the wrist you are using.
*If the cuff is wrapped too tightly or too loosely, your readings will be inaccurate or you could receive an error message.
Before Taking a Measurement - Avoid eating, drinking alcohol, smoking, exercising, and bathing for 30 minutes and rest for 15 before starting the measurement. Avoid taking a measurement during stressful times. Take the measurement in a quiet place.
Body Position - Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. If you do not have your wrist at heart level, your reading will be affected. Holding your arms or shoulders tensely may affect the reading. Remain quiet while taking the measurement.
The E error message is telling us that the unit is recognizing some type of interference while taking the reading. This could be as simple as speaking or moving, having a computer, cell phone or medic alert device too close to the phone, a loud television/radio in the same room or more complicated, such as a rapid or weak arterial pulse.
Reading Timing - Because Omron units read your blood pressure by 'listening' to the blood as it vibrates through the artery, the artery must be fully opened for an accurate reading. It is critical to wait a full 5-10 minutes between readings to allow the brachial artery to 'bounce back' from the initial constriction.
Refer to the Instruction Manual provided with the unit for the complete operating instructions.
If after reviewing the information above your unit is still not functioning properly, in order to best serve you, please call our Consumer Support team, toll-free at 800-634-4350. Our trained representatives are available Monday through Friday, 830a to 430p CST to assist you over the phone and try to resolve your issue without sending your unit in for repair. If repair is necessary, they can set up your file to start the process or provide valuable options to your particular situation.
Please have the following information available in order to expedite your call:

1. Model number (from the front of the unit)
2. Serial number (from the sticker on the side of the unit)
3. Proof of purchase information - from the receipt or online verification.

4. The wrist circumferences of all users of your unit.
They will be happy to assist you with your options regarding service.
We appreciate your interest in Omron products and want to ensure your satisfaction.
Please let me know if I may be of further assistance and have a wonderful day!

Blood pressure monitor problem


The two numbers that measure your blood pressure are written like a fraction: one number on top and one on the bottom. The top number in a blood pressure reading refers to the systolic pressure. It measures the pressure inside your blood vessels at the moment your heart beats. The bottom number represents your diastolic pressure. It measures the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart is resting between heartbeats. A good blood pressure for most people will be under 120/80, as most people with blood pressure problems have high blood pressure. However, extreme low blood pressure can also be a serious health concern.
