Arm Home Blood Pressure Monitor – How To Use
The TempIR Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is ideal for personal and domestic use. It is both safe and easy to use and can help you keep an accurate record of your blood pressure.
First you must insert the batteries, to do this remove the cover by sliding it upwards towards the centre of the monitors body, this unit uses 4 batteries, 2 of which are inserted together in the same direction with their flat negative terminal against the spring. The other 2 are inserted in the opposite direction, again with their flat negative terminal also facing against the spring. Give them a quick twist to ensure a good contact, and replace the cover by sliding it back into place.

Blood pressure is usually measured in units of MMHG, which historically means millimetres of mercury. This monitor can also display readings of KPA which is kilopascals.
