Description

The Rossmax PARR X5 Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor is a blood pressure monitor that tracks Arrhythmia Detection (ARR), Atrial Fibrillation Detection (AFib) and Premature Contraction Detection (PC). It also has cuff detection, movement detection and hypertension risk indication. The monitor can give an average of the last 3 readings and has 7 day AM/PM averaging. It includes 120 memories for 2-users with date and time indications, and also has a guest mode. The monitor has a large LCD size (69 x 78mm), with a latex-free patented universal cone cuff, and a cuff holder design for easy storage. It also has a lifetime calibration.
This unit uses the oscillometric method to detect your blood pressure. Before the cuff starts inflating, the device will establish a baseline cuff pressure equivalent to the air pressure. This unit will automatically determine the appropriate inflation level based on pressure oscillations, followed by cuff deflation. During the deflation, the device will detect the amplitude and slope of the pressure oscillations and thereby determine your actual the systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and pulse rate.
Cardiac disorders need medical attention and thus early diagnosis is of paramount importance. The PARR technology detects arrhythmia during regular blood pressure checks without any additional user skills, user interaction and measurement prolongation. Prevent the risk of cardio disease and stroke by early detection of atrial fibrillation, premature contraction, tachycardia and bradycardia with the Rossmax PARR X5 Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor.

 

Pulse Arrhythmia (PARR) Technology: Pulse Arrhythmia (PARR) technology specifically detects the existence of pulse arrhythmia, including atrial fibrillation (AFib), Atrial and / or Ventricular Premature Contractions (PC). Pulse Arrhythmia may be related to cardiac disorders, needs medical attention and thus early diagnosis is of paramount importance. The PARR technology detects arrhythmia during regular blood pressure checks without any additional user skills, user interaction and measurement prolongation. Beside the blood pressure diagnosis, a specific pulse arrhythmia diagnosis is provided with PARR. Note: The PARR detection of AFib and PC is provided with a clinically proven high detection probability. However, the sensitivity and specificity is limited, thus most, but not all pulse arrhythmias will be detected and displayed. In certain patients with uncommon clinical conditions the PARR technology may not be able to detect pulse arrhythmia. This partly comes from the fact that some arrhythmia can only be found with an ECG diagnosis, but not with a pulse diagnosis. Thus PARR is not meant to replace any medical ECG diagnosis by your doctor. PARR provides an early detection of certain pulse arrhythmia, which inevitably need to be presented to your doctor in charge.

 

Atrial Fibrillation Detection (AFib): The upper chambers of the heart (the atria) do not contract, but quiver and thus blood is driven irregularly and with lower efficiency into the ventricles. Subsequently irregular heartbeats occurs, which mostly are associated with a fast, yet highly instable heart rate. This condition is associated with a higher risk for the formation of cardiac blood clots. Amongst others, they may elevate the risk of brain strokes. Beside this atrial fibrillation may contribute to the severity of a chronic or acute heart failure condition and may be associated with other heart-related complications. Age dependent, about 10 %- 20 % percent of patients who suffer from an ischemic stroke also suffer from atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation most often initially occurs with temporary periods of arrhythmia and may progress to a permanent state of this disorder in the course of time. No matter, whether you intend to safeguard yourself from an undetected AFib state, or you measure during an ongoing period of active atrial fibrillation, or you measure in between periods of AFib, the PARR technology can be applied at any of these conditions. This unit is able to detect Atrial fibrillation (AFib). The ARR and AFib icons are displayed right after the measurement if Atrial Fibrillation was detected. It is strongly recommended, that you consult your physician, if either the AFib icon occurs newly for several times, or, if your AFib is known to your doctor, but the incidence of AFib readings changes over time. Your doctor will then be able to provide all required medical tests and possible therapeutic procedures. The presence of a cardiac pacemaker may impair the AFib detection by PARR.

 

Premature Contraction Detection (PC): Extra abnormal heartbeats generated in irregular excitation sites of your heart, either in the atria (PAC), the ventricle (PVC) or the cardiac conduction nodes (PNC). These extra beats may disrupt your regular rhythm, they may come in early or cause a significant pauses regarding your perceivable pulse. This is called palpitations, which can be felt in your chest. They may occur as isolated, single events, as a series of irregular pulses or can be distributed all over your pulse beats. If they are not related to mental stress, or acute demanding physical load, they may be a marker for a multitude of cardiac disorders. Some of these disorders go along with an elevated risk profile for ischemic events, either in the heart (e,g, coronary heart disease) or outside the heart, e.g. an elevated risk for a stroke. Some PCs may indicate on valvular or myocardial disorders and become very important if a myocarditis (infection of the heart muscle) is suspected. This unit is able to detect premature contractions. The ARR and PC icons are displayed right after the measurement if premature contractions have been detected. It is strongly recommended, that you consult your GP if either the PC icon occurs newly for several times, or, if your PC is known to your doctor, but the incidence of PC readings changes over time. Your doctor will then be able to provide all required medical tests and possible therapeutic procedures.

 

Pulse Arrhythmia Detection (ARR): Once the occurrence of pulse arrhythmia has been detected in the course of your blood pressure measurement, the icon ARR is displayed. In the case, that the found pulse arrhythmia can be specified by the PARR technology, the ARR icon is accompanied by the specifically detected type of arrhythmia, e.g. PC or AFib. Once the kind of found pulse arrhythmia cannot be safely determined by PARR, the device is displaying ARR without any additional pulse arrhythmia type icon. It is strongly recommended, that you consult your GP if either the ARR icon occurs newly for several times, or, if your ARR is known to your doctor, but the incidence of ARR readings changes over time. This is independent whether the ARR icon is specified by another pulse arrhythmia icon or not. Your doctor will then be able to provide all required medical tests and possible therapeutic procedures. The PARR technology is able to detect and display combined pulse arrhythmia findings

Application

Installing Batteries:
• Press down and lift the battery cover in the direction of the arrow to open the battery compartment
• Install or replace 4 “AAA” sized batteries in the battery compartment according to the indications inside the compartment
• Replace the battery cover by clicking in the bottom hooks first, then push in the top end of the battery cover
• Replace the batteries in pairs
• Remove batteries when unit is not in use for extended periods of time
• Replace the batteries when low battery icon appears on display, or the ON/OFF/START key is pressed and nothing appears on display
• Always replace with new batteries together – use batteries of the same brand and same type

 

Using the AC Adapter (optional):
• Connect the AC adaptor with the AC adaptor jack on the right side of the unit
• Plug the AC adaptor into the socket (AC adaptors with required voltage and current indicated near the AC adaptor jack.)
• Unload the batteries when operating with the AC mode for a longer period of time – leaving the batteries in the compartment for a long time may cause leakage, which may lead to damage of the unit
• No batteries are needed when operating with the AC mode
• AC adaptors are optional
• Use only the authorized AC Adaptor with this blood pressure monitor

 

Applying the Cuff:
• Unwrap the arm cuff, leaving the end of the cuff through the D-ring of the cuff
• Put your left arm through the cuff loop – the colour strip indication should be positioned closer to you with the tube pointing in the direction of your arm
• Turn your left palm upward and place the edge of the arm cuff at approximately 1.5 to 2.5 cm above the inner side of the elbow joint
• Tighten the cuff by pulling the end of the cuff
• Centre the tube over the middle of the arm, then press the hook and loop material together securely
• Allow room for 2 fingers to fit between the cuff and your arm
• Position the artery mark (Ø) over the main artery (on the inside of your arm)
• Locate the main artery by pressing with 2 fingers approximately 2 cm above the bend of your elbow on the inside of your left arm and identify where the pulse can be felt the strongest – this is your main artery
• Plug in the cuff connecting tube into the unit
• Lay your arm on a table (palm upward) so the cuff is at the same height as your heart. Make sure the tube is not kinked
• The cuff is suitable for your use if the arrow falls within the solid colour line
• If the arrow falls outside the solid colour line, you will need a cuff with other circumferences

 

Measurement Procedures:
• Blood pressure changes with every heartbeat and is in constant fluctuation throughout the day
• Blood pressure recording can be affected by the position of the user, his or her physiological condition and other factors
• For greatest accuracy, wait one hour after exercising, bathing, eating, drinking beverages with alcohol or caffeine, or smoking to measure blood pressure
• Before measurement, it’s suggested that you sit quietly for at least 5 minutes as measurement taken during a relaxed state will have greater accuracy
• You should not be physically tired or exhausted while taking a measurement
• Do not take measurements if you are under stress or tension
• Sit upright in a chair, and take 5-6 deep breaths
• Avoid leaning back while the measurement is being taken and do not cross the legs while sitting and keep the feet flat on the floor
• During measurement, do not talk or move your arm or hand muscles
• Take your blood pressure at normal body temperature – if you are feeling cold or hot, wait a while before taking a measurement
• If the monitor is stored at very low temperature (near freezing), have it placed at a warm location for at least one hour before using it
• Wait 5 minutes before taking the next measurement


Taking a Measurement:
• Press the User-Switching key to select memory zone 1, memory zone 2 or guest mode
• After a memory zone is selected, press the ON/OFF/START key to reset the monitor so it can start measurement in the chosen memory zone
• Press the ON/OFF/START key – all digits will light up, checking the display functions
• The checking procedure will be completed in 2 seconds
• After all symbols appear, the display will show a blinking “0”
• The monitor is ready to measure and will automatically inflate the cuff slowly to start measurement
• When the measurement is completed, the cuff will exhaust the pressure inside
• Systolic pressure, diastolic pressure and pulse will be shown simultaneously on the LCD screen and the measurement is then automatically stored into the pre-designated memory zone
• In order to enhance the probability of pulse arrhythmia detection by the PARR technology, measurement repetitions are recommended
• This blood pressure monitor will re-inflate automatically to higher pressure if the system detects that more pressure is needed to take a blood pressure measurement
• This monitor automatically switches off approximately 1 minute after last key operation
• To interrupt the measurement, simply press the ON/OFF/START key; the cuff will deflate immediately


Recalling Values from Memory:
• The monitor has two memory zones (1 and 2)
• Each zone can store up to 60 measurements
• To read memory values from a selected memory zone, use the User-Switching key to select a memory zone (1 or 2) from which you want to recall values
• Press the Memory key
• The first reading displayed is the average of all morning readings from the last 7 days
• Continue to press the Memory key to view the average of all night-time readings from the last 7 days
• Press the Memory key again to view the average of the last 3 measurements stored in memory, and the last previously stored measurement
• Every measurement comes with an assigned memory sequence number
• The memory bank can store up to 60 readings per memory zone – when the number of readings exceeds 60, the oldest data will be replaced with the new record
• AM is defined as 4:00 AM – 11:59 AM
• PM is defined as 6:00 PM – 2:00 AM
