• The blood pressure can differ between the right arm  
and the left arm, and therefore also the measured  
blood pressure values can be different. OMRON  
recommends to always use the same arm for  
measurement. If the values between the two arms  
differ substantially, please check with your physician  
which arm to use for your measurement.  
Make sure that the wrist cuff  
does not cover the protruding  
part of the wrist bone (ulna) on  
the outside of the wrist.  
Note: You can take a  
measurement on either  
your left or right wrist.  
Self-diagnosis of measured results and treatment are  
dangerous. Please follow the instructions of your doctor.
