Description

The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor is used as an easy way to get accurate results. It detects the possibility of Atrial fibrillation, enabling home monitoring of the condition and giving you peace of mind. It also takes 3 consecutive readings at 30 second intervals, then displays the average to give you a more accurate indication of your blood pressure. The monitor comes with the Intelli Wrap Cuff, which is 22 – 44cm, and can store up to 100 readings for 2 users. The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor has a cuff wrap guide, an easy high blood pressure indicator and an averaging function. It detects both body movement and Irregular Heartbeat, and has clinical validation, diabetic validation and pregnancy validation.
For reference, Blood pressure is a measure of the force of blood flowing against the walls of the arteries. Arterial blood pressure is constantly changing during the course of the heart’s cycle. The highest pressure in the cycle is called the Systolic Blood Pressure; the lowest is the Diastolic Blood Pressure. Both pressures, the Systolic and Diastolic, are necessary to enable a physician to evaluate the status of a patient’s blood pressure.
Arrhythmia is a condition where the heartbeat rhythm is abnormal due to flaws in the bio-electrical system that drives the heartbeat. Typical symptoms are skipped heartbeats, premature contraction, an abnormally rapid (tachycardia) or slow (bradycardia) pulse.
Atrial fibrillation (also called Afib or AF) is a quivering or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. During atrial fibrillation, the heart’s two upper chambers (the atria) beat chaotically and irregularly – out of coordination with the two lower chambers (the ventricles) of the heart. Episodes of atrial fibrillation can come and go, or you may develop atrial fibrillation that doesn’t go away and may require treatment. The Afib indicator function in this device detects the possibility of Afib with an accuracy of 94.2 % (with sensitivity of 95.5 % and specificity of 93.8 %).
Size: 191mm x 120mm x 85mm.


The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor contains:

  • M6 Comfort blood pressure monitor
  • Intelli Wrap Cuff (22–42 cm)
  • Instruction Manual 1 and 2
  • Batteries
  • Storage case

 

Uses

The Omron M6 Comfort Blood Pressure Monitor uses the oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement. This means this monitor detects your blood movement through your brachial artery and converts the movements into a digital reading. The monitor intended for use in measuring blood pressure and pulse rate in adult patient population. The device detects the appearance of irregular heartbeats during measurement and gives a warning signal with readings. It is mainly designed for general household use. The device can detect an irregular pulse suggestive of Atrial Fibrillation (Afib).

 

Application

Battery Installation:
• Remove the battery cover
• Insert 4 “AA” batteries as indicated in the battery compartment
• Replace the battery cover
• When the low battery symbol appears on the display, turn the monitor off, then replace all batteries at the same time – long life alkaline batteries are recommended
• The measurement values continue to be stored in memory even after the batteries are replaced


Setting the Date and Time:
• Set the monitor to the correct date and time before taking a measurement for the first time
• Press the Date/ Time setting button
• The year flashes on the Date/ Time display
• Push the arrow buttons to change the year
• Push the clock button to confirm the year and then the month flashes
• Repeat the same steps to change the month, day, hour, and minutes
• Press the START/STOP button to turn the monitor off
• If the batteries have been replaced, the date and time setting will need to be reset
• If the date and time are not set, “-/ – -:–” appears during or after measurement


Applying the Arm Cuff:
• Remove tight-fitting clothing or tight rolled up sleeve from your left upper arm – do not place the arm cuff over thick clothes
• Insert the air plug into the air jack securely
• Apply the arm cuff to your left upper arm – the bottom edge of the arm cuff should be 1 to 2 cm above the elbow, with the air tube on the inside of your arm and aligned with your middle finger
• Secure closed with the fabric fastener
• When you take a measurement on the right arm, the air tube will be at the side of your elbow. Be careful not to rest your arm on the air tube
• The blood pressure can differ between the right arm and the left arm, and therefore also the measured blood pressure values can be different, therefore Omron recommends to always use the same arm for measurement
• If the values between both arms differ substantially, please check with your physician which arm to use for your measurement

 

How to Sit Correctly when taking a measurement:
• You need to be relaxed and comfortably seated, under comfortable room temperature
• Avoid bathing, drinking alcohol or caffeine, smoking, exercising or eating 30 minutes before taking a measurement
• Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the floor
• Sit upright with your back straight
• Sit with your back and arm being supported
• The arm cuff should be placed on your arm at the same level as your heart


Taking a Measurement:
• The monitor is designed to take measurements and store the measurement values in the memory for 2 people using User ID 1 and User ID 2
• Select your User ID (1 or 2)
• Press the START/STOP button
• The arm cuff starts to inflate automatically
• Remain still while the measurement is being taken
• To cancel a measurement, press the START/STOP button to release the air in the arm cuff
• Once the measurement is complete, remove the arm cuff
• Press the START/STOP button to turn the monitor off or it will automatically turn off after 2 minutes
• The monitor automatically stores the measurement result in its memory
• Wait 2-3 minutes before taking another measurement – waiting between measurements allows the arteries to return to the condition prior to taking a measurement
• If your systolic pressure is more than 210 mmHg – after the arm cuff starts to inflate, press and hold the START/STOP button until the monitor inflates 30 to 40 mmHg higher than your expected systolic pressure. Note that the monitor will not inflate above 299 mmHg

 

Using the Guest Mode:
• The monitor stores measurement values for 2 users in the memory, but the guest mode can be used to take a single measurement for another user
• No measurement values are stored in the memory when the guest mode is selected
• Press and hold the START/STOP button for more than 3 seconds
• The User ID symbol and the Date/Time display will disappear
• Release the START/STOP button when the Date/Time display turns off
• The arm cuff will start to inflate automatically

 

Using the Memory Function:
• The monitor automatically stores the results up to 100 sets for each user (1 and 2)
• It can also calculate an average value based on the last 3 measurement values taken within 10 minutes
• If there are only 2 measurement values in the memory for that period, the average will be based on these 2 values.
• If there is 1 measurement value in the memory for that period, this is displayed as the average
• If the memory is full, the monitor will delete the oldest value
• When viewing the measurement value taken without setting the date and time, “-/ – -:–” is displayed instead of the date and time
