High blood pressure can lead to serious health problems

Possible health consequences that can happen over time when high blood pressure is left untreated include, amongst others:

1. Damage to the heart and coronary arteries
2. Stroke
3. Kidney damage
4. Vision loss

High Blood Pressure has most of the times no symptoms, so you may not be aware that your arteries, heart and other organs are damaged. The compact design of OMRON EVOLV makes it easy to use anywhere you need to take the reading and track your progress via smartphone²

What is a stroke?

A stroke is a brain attack. It happens when the blood supply to part of your brain is cut off. It can be caused by a blockage in one of the blood vessels leading to the brain or by a bleed in the brain itself. Blood carries essential nutrients and oxygen to your brain. Without the supply of blood to your brain, cells can be damaged or may die.

Stroke Awareness

Cardiovascular diseases

Heart diseases such as a cardiac infarction or angina as well as cerebrovascular events such as a cerebral stroke or cerebral hemorrhage are considered to be the main cause of death in the Europe, Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean (EMEA) region. It is projected that they account for 6.5 million deaths each year (WHO Global Health Info, Statistics Reports, 2013) within the EMEA region. Even when these events do not result in death, cerebral and cardiovascular patients will often experience a decrease in quality of life because they have become bedridden or suffer from speech deficits. It is therefore that cerebral and cardiovascular diseases are considered to be one of the major causes of the gap between a healthy lifespan and an average life expectancy.

Frequently asked questions

  • How do I connect my OMRON device to a PC or Smartphone?

    If your device features Bluetooth Smart you can use "OMRON connect" on your smartphone. Go to http://omronconnect.com for details. If your device requires a USB cable you can use Bi-LINK Health Management. Details can be found at bi-link.omron.com

  • How can I get my OMRON blood pressure monitor re-calibrated?

    With all Omron blood pressure monitors, the recommended time between calibration depends on the use of the product. If the monitor is being used in a home or personal environment, we recommend they are re-calibrated every 2 years. If the monitor is being used in a clinical environment such as a doctors surgery, we recommend that this is done annually to ensure the accuracy of the results.

    Omron blood pressure monitors all come with a 3 year warranty from date of purchase. If you still have a copy of your receipt or invoice, we can service your monitor free of charge for 3 years from the date of purchase. 

    If you wish to proceed with this, please follow the below instructions to ensure a quick turnaround.

    You will need to include:
    -A brief note stating that your machine requires servicing & explaining the issues you are having with obtaining readings, if any.
    -Your return address details - Items are sent out via our nominated courier so the return address needs to be where someone will be available to sign for it.
    -A daytime contact telephone number.
    -A copy of your purchase receipt or invoice (showing purchase within the last 3 years) so that we can carry the work out free of charge. Alternatively, feel free to contact us with the serial number on the back of the monitor so that we can check when the monitor was manufactured as we can start the 3 year warranty from the manufacturing date if you no longer have a receipt. If you have had your monitor for more than 3 years, we can of course still service it outside of warranty - There is a standard charge of £30 for this which is payable by cheque made out to "Omron Healthcare UK Ltd.."

    We aim to have your monitor returned to you within 7 working days.

  • Can I purchase a small cuff for my upper arm Blood Pressure Monitor?

    Many but not all OMRON Blood Pressure Monitors are capable of using a small cuff (17 – 22cm).
    To determine your arm size, use a cloth tape measure and place the tape measure midway between your elbow and your shoulder around the circumference of your upper arm. Wrap the tape measure evenly around your arm. Do not pull the tape tight. Note the precise measurement in centimetres.
    For additional information please refer to the Instruction Manual for your device.

  • Can I take a measurement during exercise?

    OMRON Blood Pressure Monitors are not intended for use during exercise or activity. We recommend you avoid eating, smoking and exercising for at least 30 minutes before taking a measurement.

  • Does a Blood Pressure Monitor require any Regular Maintenance?

    It is generally recommended to have the unit inspected every two (2) years to ensure correct functioning and accuracy. The OMRON distributor for your country will have the specialised test equipment as well as the trained technicians to facilitate this service. Your local OMRON retailer can assist you with arranging this service. Please bear in mind that this service is not provided free of charge and costs will be involved.

  • How accurate are personal blood pressure monitors?

    Extremely accurate, assuming they have been correctly calibrated and clinically validated. Most OMRON blood pressure monitors are clinically validated by independent doctors according to predetermined protocol. This means you are medically assured of the accuracy of the measurements from a blood pressure monitor with this validation.

  • How can I clean my Blood Pressure Monitor?

    Wipe the casing of the monitor clean using a soft dry cloth. Never use any abrasive type cleaners or submerge the monitor or any of the components in water. The cuff can be cleaned with a soft moistened cloth and a mild soap.

  • How do I assemble and use the upper arm cuff (small, medium, large or wide range)?

    When the cuff is assembled correctly, the Velcro hook material will be on the outside of the cuff loop and the metal ring will not touch your skin. If the cuff is open, pass the end of the cuff furthest from the tubing through the metal ring to form a loop. The smooth cloth should be on the inside of the cuff loop.
    1. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your upper arm.
    2. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor.
    3. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. The bottom of the cuff should be about 1 – 2 cm above your elbow (thickness of your index or middle finger). Adjust the cuff around your arm so that the tubing runs down the centre of your arm in line with your middle finger (palm open and facing upwards).
    4. Secure the cuff around your arm using the cloth closure. Pull the cuff so that the top and bottom edges are tightened evenly around your arm.
    5. The cuff should be firmly secured but not too tight – just enough so that it is difficult to slide 2 fingers under the cuff. This space is imperative for an accurate reading. OMRON's digital Blood Pressure Monitors use the Oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement that detects your blood's movement through your brachial artery and converts this movement into a digital reading.
    6. Relax your arm and place your elbow on the table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart. Turn the palm of your hand upward.
    7. Check there are no kinks in the air tubing. Be careful that you do not rest your elbow on the air tube when taking a blood pressure reading.
    8. Press the ‘O/I START’ or ‘START’ button to begin the blood pressure reading.
    For additional information please refer to the Instruction Manual for your device.

  • How do I know if the arm cuff is wrapped too tight or too loose?

    Small, Medium or Large Cuff:
    It is recommended that you apply the cuff using the following directions:
    1. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your left upper arm.
    2. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor.
    3. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. The bottom of the cuff should be about 1 – 2 cm above your elbow (thickness of your index or middle finger). Adjust the cuff around your arm so that the tubing runs down the centre of your arm in line with your middle finger (palm open and facing upwards).
    4. Secure the cuff around your arm using the cloth closure. Pull the cuff so that the top and bottom edges are tightened evenly around your arm.
    5. The cuff should be firmly secured but not too tight – just enough so that it is difficult to slide 2 fingers under the cuff. This space is imperative for an accurate reading.

    7. Check there are no kinks in the air tubing. Be careful that you do not rest your elbow on the air tube when taking a blood pressure reading.
    8. Press the ‘O/I START’ or ‘START’ button to begin the blood pressure reading.
    For additional information please refer to the Instruction Manual for your device.

    Comfort Cuff:
    1. Remove tight-fitting clothing from your left upper arm.
    2. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor and place your arm on a table so that the cuff will be at the same level as your heart.
    3. Clip the cuff over your lower left arm so the cloth flap is hanging down and slide the cuff up to your upper arm.
    4. Turn the palm of your hand upward.
    5. Align the middle of the green strip (early version of Comfort Cuff), or the blue line (current version) on the cuff with the inside of the arm in line with the middle finger.
    6. The cuff tube should run down the centre of the arm even with the middle finger.
    7. The bottom of the cuff should be about 1 – 2 cm above your elbow (thickness of your index or middle finger).
    8. Secure the cuff around your arm using the cloth closure.
    9. Secure the cuff firmly but not too tight – just enough so that it is difficult to slide 2 fingers under the cuff. This space is imperative for an accurate reading because OMRON's digital Blood Pressure Monitors use the Oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement that detects your blood's movement through your brachial artery and converts this movement into a digital reading.
    10. Relax your arm and place your elbow on the table so that the cuff is at the same level as your heart. Turn the palm of your hand upward.
    11. Check there are no kinks in the air tubing. Be careful that you do not rest your elbow on the air tube when taking a blood pressure reading.
    12. Press the ‘O/I START’ or ‘START’ button to begin the blood pressure reading.
    For additional information please refer to the Instruction Manual for your device.

  • How does a digital blood pressure monitor measure blood pressure?

    Digital monitors measure blood pressure using the Oscillometric method rather than by Auscultation.
    In Auscultation the method typically used by healthcare professionals, a combination of a stethoscope and an arm cuff is used to take blood pressure reading by listening for the sounds which correspond to Systolic and Diastolic pressures (called Korotkoff sound). To take accurate blood pressure readings using this method requires training and practice.
    Oscillometric technology measures the vibration of blood travelling through the arteries and converts the movement into digital readings.
    OMRON Blood Pressure Monitors use the Oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement. An Oscillometric monitor does not require a stethoscope thus creating a simple to use device.

  • Is an upper arm blood pressure Monitor more accurate than a wrist type?

    Both of these devices must meet the same stringent specifications for accuracy. Pressure: +/- 3 mm Hg (millimetres of Mercury), Pulse: +/- 5% of display reading. These values meet or exceed the provisions of EC directive 93/42/EEC(Medical Device Directive), and the European Standard EN1060, Non-invasive sphygmanometers Part 1: General Requirements and Part 3: Supplementary requirements for electromechanical blood pressure measuring systems.
    The choice of device is basically one of convenience. Some people find the compactness of a wrist blood pressure monitor a benefit especially if one is travelling. Others prefer the larger buttons and display on the upper arm blood pressure monitors (easier to use and read).

  • What is the warranty for the cuff on my blood pressure monitor?

    For most models, the warranty coverage for the arm or wrist cuff is one (1) year from date of purchase. Cuffs will need to be periodically replaced throughout the life of the monitor. When purchasing a replacement cuff for an arm unit please be certain to measure the circumference of your arm to purchase the correct cuff size.

    For additional information please refer to the Guarantee Card included with your device.

  • Why do my blood pressure readings seem to vary?

    There are are several reasons why you may have inconsistent readings. Many factors exist that can cause a variation in blood pressure measurement values, for example, recent activities or even the time of day can alter the reading.
    Additionally, the user's technique is very important for reliable measurement results. Listed below are some of the common reasons you may see an inconsistent or inaccurate reading:

    Cuff Size
    It is very important to use the appropriate size cuff for your arm to obtain accurate measurement results when using your blood pressure monitor. In order to determine the appropriate cuff size, you need to measure the circumference of your arm. You should periodically measure your arm size. This is especially true if you have a borderline arm size measurement, or you may have gained or lost weight.
    It is important to ensure the arm cuff you are using with your monitor is the correct size for you. If the incorrect cuff is used the result may be an inaccurate reading and/or the cuff will be damaged (air bladder).
    To determine your arm size, use a cloth tape measure and place the tape measure midway between your elbow and your shoulder around the circumference of your upper arm. Wrap the tape measure evenly around your arm. Do not pull the tape tight. Note the precise measurement in centimetres.

    Cuff Application
    1. Put your left arm through the cuff loop. The bottom of the cuff should be about 1 – 2 cm above your elbow (thickness of your index or middle finger). Adjust the cuff around your arm so that the tubing runs down the centre of your arm in line with your middle finger.
    2. Secure the cuff around your arm using the cloth closure. Pull the cuff so that the top and bottom edges are tightened evenly around your arm.
    3. Secure the cuff firmly but not too tight – just enough so that it is difficult to slide 2 fingers under the cuff. This space is imperative for an accurate reading because OMRON's digital Blood Pressure Monitors use the Oscillometric method of blood pressure measurement that detects your blood's movement through your brachial artery and converts this movement into a digital reading.

    Before Taking a Measurement
    Avoid eating, drinking alcohol, smoking, exercising, and bathing for 30 minutes and rest for 15 before starting the measurement. Avoid taking a measurement during stressful times. Take the measurement in a quiet place.

    Body Position
    Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Rest your arm on a table with your palm facing upward. The cuff should be level with your heart. Do not talk or move during the measurement.
