Tips for Accurate Use on Our Wrist Model NW100
Wrap the cuff around and below your wrist joint. Note that
the wrist unit is at the inside centre of your wrist and with
its display panel facing you.
As a general reference, the cuff tightness should be such
that you can still squeeze and fit one finger in between
your wrist and the cuff. A loosely wrapped cuff will give
inaccurate or error reading.
Raise your elbow to position the wrist unit at the same
level as your heart. You can use the storage case or your
other hand to act as a support.
Your palm should be facing up and relax your muscles.
Do not move your hand or wrist during measurement.
Note that positioning the unit too high or too low from the
heart level may affect the measurement.
Additional Tips for Accurate Use
Check your monitor’s accuracy.
Before you use a blood pressure monitor for the first time, it is a
good practice to have your blood pressure monitor’s readings
verify against the model used by your doctor or nurse in the clinic.
Measure your blood pressure twice daily.
Measure twice daily with one in the morning before you take any
medications, and another in the evening. Each time, takes two to
three readings to check your blood pressure. Cultivate a habit to
measure your blood pressure everyday at the same time and
under the same conditions.
Do not measure your blood pressure right after you wake up.
Your blood pressure is at its highest first thing in the morning. It is
advisable to wait for an hour or so before you take your reading.
Avoid food, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol and exercise for 30
minutes or more before taking measurement.
Avoid taking measurements during stressful times too. Avoid as
many external influences as you can so that the measurements
taken will reflect more accurately on your actual body condition.
Also, if necessary, go to toilet first as a full bladder is likely to rise
the blood pressure slightly.
Sit upright and relax before taking measurement.
Sit up straight with your back supported against a chair. Always
remain comfortable with both feet flat on the ground.
Do not talk or move during the measurements.
