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 dialates 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.
This monitor uses Smart Measure technology to detect your blood pressure. With one touch of a button, the cuff will automatically inflate to block the blood flow through your artery. Next, the deflation provess starts. Smart Measure technology enables the monitor to automatically inflate and deflate at 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.
The appearance of the IHB icon indicates that a pulse irregularity consistent with an irregular heartbeat was detected during measurement.
