To take an accurate reading, first position the green marker directly over the artery on the inside of your arm.
Next, place your arm on a table so the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart.
Instructions for Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitors There are several easy steps to taking your blood pressure with this monitor. First of all, avoid eating, smoking, and exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your upper arm, and sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Slide your left arm through the cuff and position the cuff approximately 0.5-inches above the elbow. On the cuff you'll notice a green marker; position this marker directly over the artery on the inside of your arm. Next, secure the cuff with the Velcro material. The cuff should make direct contact with your skin, but you should be able to easily fit your index finger between the cuff and your arm.
Place your arm on a table so that the cuff is positioned at the same level as your heart. Rest comfortably in a relaxed environment for at least 15 minutes prior to taking your blood pressure measurement. Once you feel relaxed, simply press the start button and remain still. The cuff will begin to inflate and numbers will appear on the display as the heart symbol flashes. When the measurement is complete, the cuff will deflate, and your blood pressure and pulse rate will display on the screen. If you need to stop the measurement at any time, simply press the on/off button and the monitor will immediately deflate. And remember, always consult your physician for specific information about your blood pressure.
What is IntelliSense? The IntelliSense monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level with each use -- you never have to make any adjustments to select an inflation level. This is especially convenient for hypertensive users and for people with certain arrhythmia or heart disorders because their blood pressure is so likely to fluctuate. The biggest advantage of using the IntelliSense technology is a personalized inflation, every time, for maximum comfort.
The Importance of Home Blood Pressure Monitoring Doctors, diabetes educators, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals all recommend home blood pressure monitoring for various reasons. Home monitoring provides your healthcare professionals with better information to understand and manage your high blood pressure. Many types of hypertension can only be detected by monitoring your blood pressure at home, including:
White-Coat Hypertension: blood pressure reading is high in your doctor's office but lower at home
Masked Hypertension: blood pressure reading is low in doctor's office but higher at home
Morning Hypertension: blood pressure reading is higher in the morning
Additionally, many factors can affect your blood pressure, including physical exertion, emotional fluctuations, medications, and stress. So having your blood pressure monitored at a pharmacy with an in-store device after you've been shopping or walking around might not provide you with the most accurate measurement. Monitoring your blood pressure at home allows you achieve a relaxed state more easily, and it gives you the flexibility to take your measurements at various times during the day. By keeping track of your home blood pressure readings, you can provide your healthcare professional with a log of your measurements over time. This can help them evaluate the effectiveness or need for medication.

Jay The Item works very well and have no problem with the machine. Highly recommend this product...more info
VERY easy to use I LOVE this blood pressure monitor. I just took a chance that I could try to get my pressure without reading the instructions. The first time the sleeve was positioned incorrectly - so I looked at the photo. Second time it worked perfectly. My husband tried it without my help and got it right the first time! It is exactly what we needed. We shopped around and this was by far the best price and we got free shipping too.
Excellent Excellent shipping, excellent product and so easy to use. Would buy again from this seller. Thanks to Amazon for offering great products at great prices!!...more info
Blood pressure Great product. Easy to use. I took it to my cardiologist to make sure it was giving me a correct blood pressure - he compared it to his own equipment and findings and said it was completely accurate. Also, the price here was better than the company's website. Highly recommend....more info
I Don't think it gets better. I have never needed a blood pressure monitor before, however I have used them for my grand mother. Then after my auto accident I needed to monitor my BP. This is the easiest system to use, just place the cuff on and press start. It is nice that it keeps a 30 use history. It keeps all the info, your BP, pulse, date, time. Also it senses wether or not your pulse is regular or if you have a murmur. This is great....more info
Hard to use, results not accurate This BPM is very hard to use. You have to have the cuff in the exact right place on your arm to get a reading. If not, you will get an error. Of course, you don't know you're going to get an error until you've sat there, perfectly still, for a few minutes, only to find out at the end that it didn't work - frustrating. I've gotten more errors than accurate readings, and I've quit using it all together. I've tried to place the cuff on my own arm, and my husband has also placed it for me, with great care and diligence. I'm 41, and not restricted health-wise in any manner - I can only imagine how frustrating it would be for someone elderly or health-impaired. I can't recommend it to anyone, based on my experiences. ...more info
Omron-712clc Overall this is a good blood pressure monitor. Compared to two other monitors I have owned; this model Omron-712clc inflates to a very uncomfortable pressure on arm before giving reading....more info
Good Product at a Good Price I ordered the Omron HEM-712CLC from Amazon after much research and can also confirm that this unit comes with the large cuff for an arm circumference of 13 to 17 inches (hence the designation "LC" at the end of the model number which stands for large cuff). I also was initially confused by the product description here on Amazon's page which notes the product has a 9-13 inch cuff but the description is wrong--as of the date of this review--my unit came with the large cuff (13 to 17 inches).
I was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure and my cardiologist recommended an Omron machine for home use to keep track of my blood pressure as I started on medication. After much online and in-store research I felt this unit was good quality, had all the features I wanted, and had the best price.
I am quite happy with my decision and the unit so far. It's easy to use, gives accurate readings and the large cuff fits me well. My cardiologist told me a large cuff is important for me to get the most accurate readings. If your arm is smaller than 13" you will want to go for a smaller cuff. I don't have a smaller cuff yet but if my wife wanted to use the machine, it looks like the cuffs can be interchanged quite easily by simply unplugging from the machine the rubber hose from one size cuff and plugging in the rubber hose from the other cuff. No problem.
I recommend this unit as a good quality machine at a good price...more info
Omoron Hem-712c with large cuff This is my first BP machine. It works well and is giving readings comparable to those I receive in my Dr.'s office. The product description mentions that the cuff is 9-13 inches but this LARGE cuff machine actually has a cuff that fits 13-17 inches according to the box. Fits my larger arm nicely. Just wanted to clarify this for all of you who are looking for large cuff machines and noticed that the product description gives the size of a regular cuff. Good machine, easy to set up and use....more info
Very Satisfied I am quite satisfied with this product. Works like a champ every time (well except for when the battery is weak). I try to use the AC power whenever I can or else it consumes the battery quite heavily....more info
a great gift to parents I bought this product for my parents. They just love it!! My parents monitor their blood pressure almost everyday. The automatic feature makes it very easy to use, and it is very accurate. I would recommend it to everyone who needs a blood pressure monitor....more info
Omron HEM-712CLC Automatic Blood Pressure Monitor It's so easy to read and use. I feel secured to have one at home especially I have elderly people and high blood pressure folks living at home.
Good buy!...more info
Nice Machine for the price. I bought this to replace our old blood pressure machine. I try to keep an eye on my blood pressure, and this machine with it's large cuff should be big help....more info
BP monitor Great device, soo simple to use, I had my Dr. check with the one in her office, right on the money. ...more info
doctor recommended my doctor recommended purchasing this blood pressure monitor with a wide cuff from amazon. i ordered on a day when free shipping was offered and received the product soon after. took the machine to my doctor's office and he tested it with the machine in his office and it was very accurate and he was very pleased. wonderful product and wonderful service from amazon...more info
no issues So far I did not find any issues with the product and the reading seems very acurate...more info
Useless This machine has consistenly registered my BP at much higher levels than my doctor's monitor. I was concerned that my blood pressure medicine was not working, as every reading I took was around 145/100. So, I took the Omron machine with me to my most recent doctor visit and had the doctor take her readings and then the Omron's readings. The doctor's readings were 130/85, in both arms, where the Omron was still showing 140ish/100. So, my doctor took readings from both arms again with her monitor, and still got 130/85. I haven't used the Omron since. It's junk....more info
Better than ears When working as ER physician, I would frequently listen to blood pressure readings using a stethescope and my own ears before making decisions about iv medications. But, for home use, I always recommend that people use an automatic cuff because it takes the fudge-factor out. I'll frequently have patients tell me their blood pressure's doing great (when it's actually very elevated) when they listen with a stethescope. The automatic reading doesn't allow for the mistake from poor hearing, poor stethescope skills, or just unconscious wishful thinking.
As for automatic cuffs, I've found the Omron brand to be very reliable (actually was required to use this brand once in a research project I did with a new blood pressure medication).
If you're interested in lowering your blood pressure (and your doctor agrees) I'd also recommend that you use a combination of "The Abs Diet, Eat Right Every Time," alternating with a weekly fast using "The Miracle of Fasting" by Paul Bragg as a guide.
The most powerful way to lower weight and blood pressure without medication is to gradually work your way up to walking about 20 miles per week. It seems outrageous to most with high blood pressure...but there is a way to go from sedentary to active (see my website).
Also, I'd recommend the Resperate device sold here as a proven way to lower blood pressure (all effects will be minimal without walking).
Again, check all this out with your physician first.

Handy instrument for thre best price. Looks & works good. I am personally not a doctor, to tell how accurate it is. How ever it is the best price i got for. ...more info
High quality and acurate, but really think about the auto inflate feature This is an okay unit, but I wish I'd bought one without the "auto inflate" feature. The trouble is, after the cuff is inflated, it takes more than seven seconds for the program chip to detect that it is full and time to start the slow deflation cycle.
Seven seconds with your circulation cut off in your arm is a painful long time. It is longer than you think.
But it is very accurate. There was absolutely no standard deviation from these measurements and the ones my nurse and doctor did right after with their professional units, so quality is very high....more info
Good and Easy to Use I have purchased the BP MOnitor 3 weeks back and so far I am happy with its performance. One issue what I have found with the product is that it makes a lot of noise when inflating the cuff. Othervise the readings look ok....more info
Terrible It's just big enough to be difficult to pack when I travel. And it's terribly inaccurate. If you buy this, **BE SURE** to check it against your doctor's BP cuff. The Omron consistently shows my lower pressure 10-15 points HIGHER than my doctor's.
A must have for high pressure control I was somehow exceptic about this stuff. The main problem of this kind of tools is that most of them never show high blood results when, indeed, you have. This really works, it's easy to use, comfortable and comes with an adaptator, useful for home use. ...more info
Blood Pressure Monitor I've never used a home blood pressure monitor before - but I can't imagine it gets any easier than this. The size of the cuff is perfect for larger arms and all of the features on the monitor are easy to use & understand....more info
Substantial Value This blood pressure monitor is virtually foolproof to use. It's especially useful to those of us whose hearing is not what it once was as no stethescope is necessary. Plus, the versatility of AC or battery operation makes this a terrific health care appliance....more info
Nice device! This is a nice device and consistently accurate. I have not used the available memory feature on this device. The nylon carrying case is the perfect size to tuck away after use. Overall a great device for the price....more info
Good Product Had a conventional type monitor and decided to try the auto-inflate type. Am well pleased with the unit and how it performs. For the money, it is a good value....more info
Omron Blood Pressure Machine The product is giving varied results each time you are checking your Blood Pressure. Also, the adaptor is not working, so I had to purchase a new one.
Think twice before purchasing this product....more info
Works great..... and the cuff size works well with my husband large arms. Very accurate abd durable equipment. Great price too. ...more info
Easy to use This unit is really easy to use. Directions are easy to understand. You can use it with batteries or plug it into the wall. I like that I was able to buy the large cuff without having to buy the small one as well. Readings appear to be accurate. I have not gotten to compare it to the doctor's office. The readings repeat very well which is a sign of accuracy....more info
don't purchase the Omron HEM -712CLC blood pressure monitor I don't recommend buying this blood pressure moniter. I returned the one I purchased. The monitor displayed an error code even after following all directions to correct the problem....more info
Blood Pressure Cuff My husband's dr. recommended this so that he could keep track of his blood pressure. He appreciates the convenience....more info
This is a very solid product. The docs said get one--so I did. Having no real expectations, I was very pleased how simple, quick and easy this machine operated. Doing it by myself was a snap. Once the cuff is placed, hit one button and it does it all by itself. The cuff inflates to whatever upper limit it finds necessary and IMMEDIATELY it begins to deflate. There's no delay--there's no pain associated with a inflated cuff crushing your arm for an overly long period of time. Once deflated, the measurements are immediately displayed in large, easy-to-read text. I was amazed at how accurately the measurements were to what the docs just measured earlier that day. I am very pleased with this product....more info
Great product Let me say, the Omron has really helped me keep track of my blood pressure. This unit works exactly as advertised. I am a bodybuilder and the large cuff works great for me.
The main thing to remember is to get the cuff tight enough before starting the monitor or it will not inflate properly and stop.
blood pressure monitor Good monitor. Don't get the extra large cuff unless you're sure you really need it....more info
Among the best Blood Pressure Monitors After receiving this, I took it to my doctor so that she could test the calibration. My doctor said that this monitor is very accurate. (She is a perfectionistic doctor.) This monitor is very easy to use and the numbers are easy to read....more info
Mostly pleased with monitor I bought this item because I'm a pretty big guy and needed a cuff that would fit me as well as my wife. My wife has suffered a stroke and needs to monitor her blood pressure twice a day. The monitor works very well when I use it, but my wife has trouble getting the cuff to fit and sometimes gets errors. The monitor is very fast, getting a reading within two minutes and I consider it very accurate....more info
Good portable blood pressure unit, it works well. It works like a champ. Works best with batteries (4xAA cells). The portable convenience is very nice. It also has a memory so you can review your history over the last few weeks. I bought the one with the long (large) arm piece. It needs to be tightened up pretty tight on your arm before starting or else it will error-out. ...more info
Good Monitor This is a good monitor. My only negative remark would be that the unit pumps a little too much pressure. Really gets tight on your arm. But...the main thing desired is accuracy and this unit it accurate. ...more info
Awesome machine! After going to the dr. office and waiting sometimes an hour or two to get in, it's expected to have high blood pressure. Not to mention knowing the dr. is going to "find" something wrong with you no matter what. Several visits in row my numbers were slightly high - I blamed it on White Coat Syndrome - the dr. said no. Not to mention I have large arms and he insisted on using the small cuff. So he put me on meds. A week later, one day I was dizzy - had a family member who is an EMT take my pressure - it was on the lower end of normal on a day I did not take the medicine early - I forgot about it. I came off the medicine until the next appointment. The doctor took it again that week, it was sky high. He told me to buy this machine. Took my own pressure for 2 weeks and it was basically perfect on every reading. So needless to say, when I went back, it wasn't the pressure he was concerned about, it was another "problem" that he created....more info
Love It I found this blood pressure meter easy to use and quite accurate when checked against my doctors readings. Keeping the readings in memory made it very easy to keep my doctor inform of the results. The size of the cuff is very important, so be sure to order the right size for your arm as the wrong size will give inaccurate results. This is true in the doctors office also. My blood pressure dropped several points in the doctors office, on his machine, just by changing the size of the cuff.
This is an excellent monitor - I couldn't be happier with it. It is nice to be able to use it with batteries too. ...more info

Very Accurate Home Monitor My doctor recommended that I get a home blood pressure monitor because she was wondering if I was suffering from White-Coat Hypertension (I am always nervous when I go to the doctor's office). After reviewing all the monitors available on Amazon, I settled on the Omron HEM-712CLC. It got good reviews and had an included AC adapter (good on saving batteries). I received it from Amazon in less than a week and eagerly opened the box. After looking at it, I was concerned that the "Large Cuff" was too big for my slim, non-muscular arms. That fear was quite unfounded. I simply tightened the cuff after wrapping it around until it was snug. Velcro held it perfectly in place. It took some trial and error until I got the proper reading consistently, as I didn't have my arm positioned properly. All in all I found the readings to be quite accurate and nearly matched my doctor's findings later that week. Needless to say...my blood pressure was at a very acceptable level. I very highly recommend this product!!...more info
