Introduction                                      3
Congratulations on your purchase of the new Lumiscope model 1134. This fully-automatic, blood pressure monitor is both easy-to-use and ideally suited for daily measurements. The large display includes systolic blood pressure reading, diastolic blood pressure reading and the pulse rate, all clearly shown at the completion of each reading.
You can store up to 99 measurements in each of the unit's 4 memory zones, ideal for users who want to monitor and track their blood pressure on a regular basis. The 1134 is compact and portable, making it perfect for home use and travel.
Blood pressure measurements determined with your 1134 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.

4                          How the 1134 Works
Your model 1134 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 cuff, the monitor 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 1134 will determine the systolic and diastolic pressures for you; and your pulse rate is detected at the same time.
About Blood Pressure                         5
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) 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 the various health problems afflicting people today, 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 for identifying those at risk.

1. To insert the batteries
A. Press down on the latch and lift the cover towards you to open the battery compartment.
B.   Insert 4 "AA" batteries as indicated. Make sure to match polarities (+, –) on the batteries.
C.   Replace the battery cover by inserting the two hooks at the bottom into the slot, then push on the top area.
1. Place your elbow on a table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart. (Fig. A.)

Note: The level of your heart is slightly below your armpit.
Relax your entire body, especially the area between your elbow and fingers.
Note : Please remove batteries when not in use for an extended period of time. Do not dispose batteries with household garbage.
2. If the cuff is not at the same level as your heart or if you can not keep your arm completely still throughout the reading, use a soft object such as a folded towel to support your arm. (Fig. B) Do not allow hard objects to come in contact with the wrist cuff.

D. To have a secure fit, pull the end of the cuff towards you, wrap it over, then press it for closure. If the Index line falls within the OK range, indicated at the edge of the cuff, this cuff is suitable for your use. If the Index line falls out of the OK range, you may need a cuff with larger circumference.
This cuff fits arm sizes 9.2" - 18.2".
A. Plug the end of the tubing on the cuff into the connector at the base of the monitor.
B. Remove any clothing that restricts the upper left arm. Wrap the cuff around your upper left arm. The rubber tube should point in the direction of your hand. The bottom edge of the cuff should be 0.8" ~ 1.2" (2~3 cm) above your elbow with the tube positioned over the middle of your arm.
E. Position your arm so that the cuff is aligned at heart level, as shown in the diagram.
C. Position the artery mark ( 0 ) over the main artery (on the inside of your arm) in the upper arm.
N Main Artery
Note : To locate the main artery, press two fingers approximately 1" (2cm) above the bend of your elbow on the inside of your left arm

To start the measurement
Note: In order to get your correct measurement result and to avoid erroneous measurements you should be seated quietly, your arm, hand, and fingers should be still during measurement procedure.
Showing levels of Blood Pressure Reading Standards for assessing high blood pressure, without regard to age, have been established by the World Health Organization (WHO), as shown in the chart as below. This unit offers 6-color light signs after user's measuring. From the light sign, it will help users to find out their health situation. Different levels show the corresponding light color.
A. Push the "PAGE" button to select one of the four Memory Zones. Then push "POWER" twice. It will then display a " FLASHING 0". After a few moments the unit will automatically inflate displaying the increasing pressure reading.
Example: If your Blood Pressure reading is 122/75, then light sign will indicate the color Blue Green which means your reading is Normal
