manual abstract

The large display includes systolic, diastolic and pulse, all clearly shown at the completion of each reading. In addition, you can store up to 30 measurements per Memory Zone using your 1140's built-in memory, ideal for users who want to monitor and track their blood pressure on a regular basis. The 1140 is compact and portable, making it ideal for home use and travel. Blood pressure measurements determined with your 1140 are equivalent to those obtained by a trained observer using cuff/stethoscope auscultation method, within the limits prescribed by the American National Standard, Electronic or Automated Sphygmomanometers. Please read this manual carefully before use. For specific information on your own blood pressure, contact your physician. Please be sure to keep this manual. Quick Reference A. Install Batteries B. Apply Cuff C. Correct Posture D. Press POWER Key Battery Type: 2 Alkaline (AAA) size See Page 13 Apply cuff to left wrist with palm facing up See Pages 14,15 Place the wrist at heart level See Pages 16,17 Wait until a "0" is shown on the LCD screen. See Page 20 Quick Reference E. Press START Key Remain still during measurement See Page 20 F. Store values in Memory Press " " key to select Memory Zone 1 or 2, then press the Memory key to store the measured values in the selected Memory Zone. Your new model 1140 stores a maximum of 30 measured values per Memory Zone. See Page 22 G. Recall Memory Use " " key to select a Memory Zone, then press RECALL key to recall prior measured values from that Memory Zone. See Page 23 How the 1140 Works Your model 1140 uses the oscillometric method to detect your blood pressure. Before the cuff starts inflating, the device will establish a baseline cuff pressure, which is equivalent to the air pressure. The measurement of your blood pressure is based on this baseline pressure. After the cuff inflates to block your blood in the artery, the deflation process starts. During the deflation of the wrist cuff, your 1140 is detecting the pressure oscillations generated by the beat-to-beat pulsatile. Any muscle movement during this period of time will cause measurement error. After detecting the amplitude and the slope of the pressure oscillations during the deflation process, your 1140 will determine the systolic and diastolic pressures for you, and your pulse rate is detected at the same time. About Blood Pressure What is Blood Pressure? Blood pressure is the pressure exerted on the artery tube while blood flows through the arteries. The pressure measured when the heart contracts and sends blood out of the heart is systolic (highest). The pressure measured when the heart dilates with blood flowing back into the heart is called diastolic (lowest) blood pressure. Why Measure Your Blood Pressure? Among the various health problems afflicting modern people, problems associated with high blood pressure are by far the most common. High blood pressure's dangerously strong correlation with cardiovascular disease has made measuring blood pressure a necessity of identifying those at risk. Blood Pressure Standard The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed a blood pressure standard, according to which areas of low- and high-risk blood pressure are identified. This standard, however, is a general guideline and blood pressures vary between different people, age groups, etc. It is important that you consult with your physician regularly. Your physician will tell you your normal blood pressure range as well as the point at which you will be considered at risk. Blood Pressure Fluctuation Blood pressure fluctuates all the time! You should not be overly worried if you encounter two or three measurements at high levels. Blood pressure changes over the month and even throughout the day. It is also influenced by season and temperature.
