If the price is right get the monitors. If not, spring for something that costs a bit more, but is of a better build quality. had a 20 inch CRT, I wanted to buy a 22 inch wide screen monitor but did not want to lose the vertical real estate. Budget allowed for this monitor. Inexpensive, fast. No input lag Limited viewing angles (especially vertically). Color is so so

About this device

Purpose of use
The device is used to measure blood pressure at the wrist. It is suitable for healthy people above 14 years of age and can be used to make comparative measurements especially during sporting activities. The memories are stored in two units, and each unit can store 60 memories at most. This device is only suitable for using in dry, internal rooms. This device is intended for personal use only. It is not intended to commercial use in a heavy industry environment. Use under extreme environmental conditions can result in damage to your device.
If the values obtained give you cause to be concerned about your health, take medical advice. Do not change your treatment/dosage of medication as a result of the values unless you have discussed this with your doctor!

Blood pressure values

When interpreting the values measured, please note that there can be differences in the values measured at the wrist and arm. However, because the values measured at the upper arm and wrist undergoes the same changes the values measured at the wrist can be used for comparative measurements. The blood pressure measurement device displays blood pressure (systolic and diastolic values), pulse, date and time. The following summary can help you to assess the values you measure.
The classification of blood pressure values is based on a definition and classification by the WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION from 1999. The WHO defines high blood 10
pressure as values above 140 mmHg (systolic value) and 90 mmHg (diastolic value). The new blood pressure classification indicator visually indicates users blood pressure category, Blood pressure classification Low Normal High-Normal Hypertension stage I Hypertension stage II Hypertension stage III systolic mmHg < - -179 > 180 diastolic mmHg < - - 109 > 110 Colourindicator Green Green Green Yellow Orange Red

Getting started

Inserting the batteries
Remove the cover of the battery compartment in the direction of the arrow. Insert two 1.5V batteries size AAA/LR03 (alkaline). Pay attention to the polarity (the negative terminal faces the spring). Close the battery compartment.
Replace the batteries if the battery icon appears on the display, if the display remains blank after pressing the ON/OFF button.
Replace all batteries with new batteries of the same type at the same time. Do not mix used and new or different types of batteries together. Rechargeable batteries are not suitable for the operation of this device.
Setting the date and time
1. Press the buttons and M at the same time. The current month flashes. 2. Press the M button repeatedly to set the current month. 3. Press the button. The day flashes.

4. Press the M button repeatedly to set the current day. 5. Press the button. The hour flashes.
6. Press the M button repeatedly to set the current hour. 7. Press the button. The minutes flash.
8. Press the M button repeatedly to set the current minutes. Date and time have been set. The flashing bar disappears after 10 seconds. 9. Press the button to finish the date and time setting.
The device closes the setting mode automatically after one minute.
1. Attach the wrist sleeve in such a way that it is approx. mm away from the palm of your left hand (see fig. B). Ensure that no articles of clothing are trapped in the sleeve. 2. Hold the lower part of the sleeve as shown in fig. C. Pull down and wrap it around and upwards, so that there is no gap between the sleeve and your wrist. 3. Use your thumb to hold the sleeve cover while you wrap it upwards. 4. Wrap the sleeve according to the shape of your wrist. If the sleeve is not firmly attached the pressure will increase and the wrist will become numb. Correct measurement is then no longer possible. 16
If the sleeve cannot be attached to your left arm and if it is not possible to measure your left arm, use your right one. Attach the sleeve as shown in fig. D.

Correct measurement

Place your elbow on the table or other supporting surface, and hold your arm so that the wrist sleeve is at heart height. In doing so, support your lower arm on the storage box or on a folded towel or similar. To measure your blood pressure, sit comfortably on a chair, take 5 or 6 deep breaths and relax. Always measure your blood pressure at the same time each day! It is important to measure your blood pressure at home and at the same time each day so that the blood pressure, which can change over the course of a day, is recorded properly. 18
Inform your doctor of the values measured so that he can give you medical advice. Blood pressure measured at the wrist can vary from that measured at the upper arm. The values may be slightly different because of the different measurement positions and the strength of the blood vessels in the wrist and upper arm. In many cases, the difference for healthy people can be 10 mmHg of the systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Attention is advised for the following types of person: People with high blood pressure, diabetes, liver disease, hardened arteries, poor circulation.
Carrying out measurements
1. Attach the wrist sleeve to your wrist as described above. 2. Press the button. All indicators are displayed for a few seconds on the screen; then the screen shows the time and the most recently selected memory unit (U1/U2). 3. You can modify the current memory unit by pressing the button M. If you have already stored measurements in this unit the display shows the latest values.
During measurement do not move the sleeve or your arm or hand muscles.
A few seconds later the monitor starts searching the zero point. When the air pressure is stable the monitor begins to measure automatically. 4. If you want to stop the measurement, press the button. The air is released from the sleeve.
If you want to repeat a measurement you should wait at least five minutes. The air must be completely removed from the sleeve.

Automatic Measurement

Measurement starts automatically; the device pumps up the sleeve. If the sleeve pressure is too low the device pauses and pumps up the sleeve again until it reaches a sleeve pressure that is appropriate for the measurement. The device also measures your pulse. The value displayed will fall during measurement. The sleeve deflates when the measurement is complete. The systolic and diastolic blood pressure and the pulse with the pulse icon appear in the display.
Indication of an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia)
The pulse normally beats evenly (rhythmically). The symbol will appear in the display if the device perceives irregularities in the rhythm of the pulse. Repeat the measurement in this case. There can be different causes of irregularities in the rhythm of the pulse. Please consult your doctor if your pulse is arrhythmic in the long term.

Memory unit

Reading the stored values
The device has two memory units U1 and U2. Up to 60 measurements can be saved in each unit. You can also display the average values of the saved measurements.
1. The device should not be in measure mode. Switch it off if necessary. 2. Press the button M to enter the memory mode. On the display appear the memory sign, the memory unit and the number of measurements, which have been stored in this unit.

3. You can modify the current memory unit by pressing the


4. Press the button M to display the stored values. 5. The measured values are displayed in reverse order. With each press of the button M the previous results appear.
6. Press the button to exit the memory.

Where P is the transmitter's nominal output in Watt (W) according to the information provided by the manufacturer of the transmitter and d is the recommended protection distance in metres (m). The field strength at all frequencies of stationary transmitters is, according to an on-site inspection a, below the pass level b. Interference may be experienced in the vicinity of appliances marked with the following symbol
NOTE 1: The higher applies at 80 MHz and 800 MHz. NOTE 2: These guidelines may not apply to all situations. The radiation of electromagnetic waves is influenced by absorption and reflection from buildings, objects and people.
The field strength of stationary transmitters, such as base stations for radio telephones and terrestrial mobile services, amateur stations, AM and FM radio and television transmitters cannot be determined precisely in theoretical terms. In order to determine the electromagnetic environment resulting from stationary HF transmitters we recommend an on-site inspection. If the field determined at the location of Model MD 15231 exceeds the pass level stated above the Model MD 15231 must be checked for normal operation at each point of use. If unusual performance characteristics are observed, it may be necessary to undertake additional measures such as realigning or moving Model MD 15231. Not applicable in the frequency range from 150 kHz to 80 MHz.

Table 206

Recommended protective distances between portable and mobile HF telecommunication devices and the [DEVICE or SYSTEM] Model MD 15231 is intended for operation in an electromagnetic environment in which the HF interference is controlled. The customer or user of Model MD 15231 can help to avoid electromagnetic interference by adhering to the minimum distance between portable and mobile HF telecommunication devices (transmitters) and the Model MD 15231 depending on the output of the communication device as shown below.

For transmitters whose nominal output is not listed in the above table, the distance can be determined using the equation in the relevant column, where P is the transmitter's maximum nominal output in Watt (W) as specified in the information provided by the transmitter's manufacturer. NOTE 1 The higher frequency range applies at 80 MHz and 800 MHz. NOTE 2 The ISM frequency bands (for industrial, scientific and medical applications) between 150 kHz and 80 MHz are 6.765 MHz to 6.795 MHz; 13.553 MHz to 13.567 MHz; 26.957 MHz to 27.283 MHz and 40.66 MHz to 40.70 MHz. NOTE 3 The pass levels in the ISM frequency bands between 150 kHz and 80 MHz and in the frequency range from 80 MHz and 2.5 GHz are intended to reduce the probability that mobile/portable communication devices might cause interference if they are accidentally brought into the patient area. For this reason the additional 10/3 factor is applied when calculating the recommended protection distances in these frequency ranges. NOTE 4 These guidelines may not apply to all situations. The radiation of electromagnetic waves is influenced by absorption and reflection from buildings, objects and people.
