Normal blood pressure is 120/80 or lower. High blood pressure is 140/90 or higher. If your blood pressure is between 120/80 and 140/90, you may have something called pre-hypertension. This means that you are at risk for high blood pressure.
Monitoring your blood pressure at home can be confusing. Below is a list of terms that are helpful to know.
- Blood pressure: the force of blood against the walls of the artery;
- Hypertension: High blood pressure;
- Hypotension: Low blood pressure;
- Brachilartery: a blood vessel that goes from your shoulder to below your elbow. You measure your blood pressure in this artery;
- Systolic pressure: The highest pressure in an artery when your heart is pumping blood to your body;
- Diastolic pressure: The lowest pressure in an artery when your heart is at rest;
- Blood pressure measurement: A calculation of both systolic and diastolic. It is written or displayed with the systolic number first and the diastolic pressure second. For example, 120/80. This is a normal blood pressure reading.

AccuQuik’s blood pressure monitor uses a cuff which may be placed, according to the instrument, around the upper arm or wrist that is at the same height as the heart. The machine itself inflates the cuff and gradually reduces the pressure in the same way as a manual meter, and measures blood pressure by the oscillometric method. The reading is reflected in the digital monitor as (in/mmHg) diastolic/systolic pressure.
The device contains sensitive electronic components. Avoid strong electrical or electromagnetic fields in the direct vicinity of the device (e.g., mobile telephones, microwave ovens). These can lead to temporary impairment of the measuring accuracy.
Use of this instrument on patients under dialysis therapy or on anticoagulant, antiplatelets, or steroids could cause internal bleeding.
Do not use cuffs, AC adapters, or batteries other than those included with this product or replacement parts supplied by AccuQuik.
Do not stand while testing. Sit in a relaxed position while keeping your arm level
with your heart.
Avoid speaking or moving body parts while testing.
While testing, avoid strong electromagnetic interference such as microwave ovens and cell phones.
Wait 3 minutes or longer before re-testing.
Try to measure your blood pressure at the same time each day for consistency.
Test comparisons should only be made when monitor is used on the same arm, in the same position, and at the same time of day.
This blood pressure monitor is not recommended for people with severe arrhythmia.
Do not use this blood pressure monitor if the device is damaged.
