Blood Pressure Monitor

Model  HEM-741CREL

INTRODUCTION

Thank you for purchasing the ReliOn® HEM-741CREL Automatic Blood Pressure 

Monitor.

Your new blood pressure monitor uses the oscillometric method of blood pressure 

measurement. This means the monitor detects your blood’s movement through your 

brachial artery and converts the movements into a digital reading. An oscillometric 

monitor does not need a stethoscope so the monitor is simple to use.

The HEM-741CREL comes with the following components:

• Monitor • Wide Range Cuff  • 4 “AA” Alkaline Batteries

• Instruction Manual printed in English and Spanish • Quick Start Guide

Please read this instruction manual thoroughly before using the unit.

Please keep for future reference.

For specific information about your own blood pressure, CONSULT YOUR 

DOCTOR.

BEFORE TAKING A MEASUREMENT

To ensure a reliable reading follow these recommendations:

1.  Avoid eating, drinking alcohol, smoking, exercising, and bathing for 30 minutes 

before taking a measurement. Rest for at least 15 minutes before taking the 

measurement.

2.  Stress raises blood pressure. Avoid taking measurements during stressful times.

3.  Measurements should be taken in a quiet place.

4.  Remove tight-fitting clothing from your left arm.

5.  Sit on a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Rest your left arm on table so that the 

cuff is at the same level as your heart.

6.  Remain still and do not talk during the measurement.

7.  Wait 2-3 minutes between measurements. The wait time allows the arteries to return 

to the condition prior to taking the blood pressure measurement. You may need to 

increase the wait time depending on your individual physiological characteristics.

8.  Keep a record of your blood pressure and pulse readings for your physician. A 

single measurement does not provide an accurate indication of your true blood 

pressure. You need to take and record several readings over a period of time. Try to 

measure your blood pressure at the same time each day for consistency.
