Blood pressure is the exerted pressure on the artery walls while blood flows through the arteries. The pressure values obtained when the heart contracts and sends blood out of the heart are the highest blood pressure, while the pressure measured when the heart dilates with blood flowing back into the heart is the lowest.
The most common health problems today are those associated with high blood pressure. In addition, high blood pressure hazardously correlates with cardiovascular diseases. This makes blood pressure monitoring important for identifying those at risk of such diseases.

Are There Any Precautions Associated With This Blood Pressure Monitor?
Yes, some of the important details one needs to put in mind include:
- Excessive use of this blood pressure monitor may interfere with the normal blood flow, which will most likely cause uncomfortable sensations. They might include partial subcutaneous bleeding and temporary numbness to your wrist. Generally, these symptoms should not go for long. But if you do not recover in time, seek advice from a medical professional as soon as possible.
- If you have any of the mentioned conditions: Severe hypertension, severe diabetes, severe arteriosclerosis, painful kidney disease, or vascular disease that may compromise circulation. Consult a specialist before measuring blood pressure at the wrist
- The pulse display is not suitable if one checks the frequency of heart pacemakers.
- Avoid all strong electrical or electromagnetic fields in the direct vicinity of the device. Devices such as mobile telephones and microwave ovens should be kept away since they may temporarily impair measurement accuracy.
- Considering the electromagnetic compatibility of the device, for instance, the power disturbance and radio frequency interference, the monitor should only be used indoors.
- It is advised to use only 1.5V “AAA” alkaline batteries for the power supply.
- Blood pressure measurements determined with this device are the same as those obtained by a trained observer using the cuff/stethoscope, within the limits prescribed by the American National Standard, Manual, electronic, or automated sphygmomanometers.
- This blood pressure monitor should only be used for its intended use.
- The cuff should not be wrapped around body parts other than your wrist.
- Not to be used by persons under the age of 18.
As a safeguard, it is recommended that if you have arrhythmias such as atrial or ventricular premature beats and atrial fibrillation, or any other special conditions, you should check with your physician before using your blood pressure monitor. This blood pressure monitor is not designed to be used by people with arrhythmias. It is also not for diagnosing or treating an arrhythmia problem.
