Description

The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor is a compact, fully automatic blood pressure monitor, operating on the oscillometric principle. It measures your blood pressure and pulse rate simply and quickly.

For comfortable controlled inflation without the need of pressure pre-setting or re-inflation the Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor uses its advanced “IntelliSense” technology. The Intelli Wrap Cuff technology, which supports 360 degrees accuracy, enabling accurate results in any position around the upper arm.

The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor also stores up to 90 measurements in memory and calculates an average value based on the last three measurements taken within 10 minutes. Each measurement is stored along with the date and time of measurement.
The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor is clinically validated, both uses Intellisense technology and Intelli Wrap Cuff technology and has 3 averaging functions. There is an easy blood pressure LED so you can see if your blood pressure is normal or high. The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor help to monitor hypertension, the main risk factor for stroke.

Incorrect cuff usage is considered to be a significant cause of inaccurate blood pressure measurements, but errors due to cuff positioning are history with the Omron Intelli Wrap Cuff. Regular cuffs can cause inaccurate or variable results when positioned incorrectly. This is due to the small zone on the cuff where accurate measurement is possible.

Omron’s Intelli Wrap Cuff has an accurate measurement zone that wraps 360° around the upper arm, making it virtually impossible to place the cuff incorrectly. Use of the Intelli Wrap Cuff can help to significantly reduce the amount of errors made in home blood pressure monitoring, increasing the overall accuracy of results.

The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor contains:

  • Main Unit.
  • Cuff 22-42cm.
  • Batteries.
  • Instruction Manual.
  • Storage Bag.

Application

Installing/Replacing the Batteries

Remove the Battery cover.

Insert four “AA” batteries as indicated in the battery compartment and then replace the battery cover.

How to Sit Correctly When Taking a Measurement

Correct posture during measurement is necessary to get accurate results.

Measurements should be taken in a quiet place and you should be in a relaxed, seated position. Make sure that the room is not too hot or too cold.

Avoid eating, smoking, or exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement.

Do not move or talk during measurement.

Remove tight fitting clothing from your upper arm, and any thick clothing such as a sweater. Do not place the cuff over thick clothes and do not roll up your sleeve if it is too tight.

Sit upright with your back straight.

Place your arm on a table so that the cuff will be at the same level as your heart. The gap between the chair and the top of the table should be between 25cm to 30cm.

You can take a measurement on either your left or right arm. The blood pressure can differ between the right arm and the left arm and therefore also the measured blood pressure values can be different. Omron recommends to always use the same arm for measurement. If the values between the two arms differ substantially, please check with your physician which arm to use for your measurement.

Applying the Arm Cuff

Be sure to wrap the arm cuff correctly so that you get accurate results. Measurements can be taken in light clothing. However, please remove thick clothes, such as sweaters, before taking a reading.

Insert the air plug into the air jack (on the left side of the device). The cuff must be fully deflated when it is inserted into the air jack. Put your arm through the cuff loop.

Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and place your arm on a table so that the cuff will be at the same level as your heart.

Hold the grip on the cuff securely with your hand.

Turn the palm of your hand upward.

Turn the palm of your hand upward.

Apply the cuff to your upper arm so that the blue strip is centred on the middle of your inner arm and points down the inside of the arm. The air tube should run down the inside of your forearm and be in line with your middle finger.

The bottom of the cuff should be approximately 1 to 2 cm above the elbow.

When the cuff is positioned correctly, close the fabric fastener FIRMLY.

Make certain the cuff fits snugly around your arm.

The cuff should make good contact with your skin. You should be able to fit your index finger between the cuff and your arm easily, so you can pull the cuff off and on.

Make sure that there are no kinks in the air tubing.

Taking measurements on the right arm

Please note the following points when applying the cuff to your right arm. Apply the cuff so that the air tube is at the side of your elbow.

Be careful not to rest your arm on the air tube, or otherwise restrict the flow of air to the cuff.

Apply the arm cuff so that no part of the cuff is positioned over the elbow joint. The cuff should be 1 to 2 cm above the elbow.

If used 2 times per day, the cuff will last for 3 years.

Taking a reading

Press the O/I START button and remain still, the cuff will start to inflate automatically.

As the cuff begins to inflate, the monitor automatically determines your ideal inflation level. Remain still and do not talk until measurement is completed.

Do not inflate the cuff if it is not wrapped around your arm.

Inflation stops automatically and measurement is started. As the cuff slowly deflates, decreasing numbers appear on the display and the Heartbeat display flashes at every heartbeat.

In rare circumstances, the monitor might re-inflate the cuff to continue with the measurement.

When the measurement is complete, the arm cuff completely deflates and your blood pressure and pulse rate are displayed.

The monitor automatically stores the blood pressure readings and pulse rate along with date and time of measurement in its memory.

Press the O/I START button to turn the monitor off.

If you forget to turn the monitor off, it will automatically shut itself off after five minutes.

Wait 2-3 minutes before taking another blood pressure measurement. Waiting between readings allows the arteries to return to the condition prior to taking the blood pressure measurement.

If you move during measurement, the movement display may appear. Repeat the measurement and remain still until the measurement is complete.

Your blood pressure monitor includes an irregular heartbeat feature. Irregular heartbeats can influence the results of the measurement. The irregular heartbeat algorithm automatically determines if the measurement is usable or needs to be repeated. If the irregular heartbeat display is shown after you have taken a measurement, repeat the measurement. If the irregular heartbeat display is shown frequently, please make your doctor aware of it.

If your systolic blood pressure is above 135 mmHg or your diastolic blood pressure is above 85 mmHg, the heartbeat symbol will blink when the measurement result is displayed. Recent research suggests that the following values can be used as a guide to high blood pressure for measurements taken at home.

Systolic Blood Pressure = Above 135 mmHg.

Diastolic Blood Pressure = Above 85 mmHg.

This criteria is for home blood pressure measurement.
