What is Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the pressure exerted on the artery walls while blood flows through the arteries. The pressure measured when the heart contracts and sends blood out of the heart is systolic (highest) blood pressure. 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 today's various health problems, those associated with high blood pressure are very common. High blood pressure dangerously correlates with cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, blood pressure monitoring is important for identifying those at risk.
Blood Pressure Standard
The table below is criteria for hypertension that is publicly available from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). Users can compare their own blood pressure readings against these established criteria to determine if they may be potentially at increased risk. This table is applicable to most adults aged 18 and older. Blood pressure tends to go up and down, even in people who normally don't have high readings. If your numbers stay above the "normal" range most of the time, you may be at increased risk and should consult your physician.
||Less than 120
||Less than 80
|High Blood Pressure
||160 or higher
||100 or higher
Although one can easily find where their own blood pressure reading fall on the above table, this monitor comes equipped with a Risk Category Index that automatically compares each reading to this criteria and provides a helpful cue if your reading falls into one of the stages that could potentially indicate increased risk.

How This Blood Pressure Monitor Works
This monitor uses Smart Measure technology to detect your blood pressure. With on touch of a button, the cuff will automatically inflate to block the blood flow through your artery. Next, the deflation process starts. Smart Measure technology enables the monitor to automatically inflate and deflate to the appropriate level for each individual. Please note that any muscle movement during inflation or deflation will cause measurement error. When measurement is complete, the monitor will display your systolic pressure, diastolic pressure, and pulse readings.
The monitor automatically finds where your measurement results fall on the NIH's National Heart Lung and Blood Institute's table and provides a cue if your reading falls into one of the stages that could potentially indicate increased risk.
