Facts About Blood Pressure

Your heart is your most important organ, and it’s a good idea to know how well it’s doing. With Omron home blood pressure monitors, you consistently get an accurate picture of your heart’s health.

One in three adults suffer from high blood pressure in America. This condition can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and blindness. With the Omron 10 SERIES upper arm blood pressure monitor, you can monitor your blood pressure at home, and with the help of your physician, take steps to decrease your risk of heart disease. A healthy heart combined with a healthy lifestyle will help increase your chances for a long, active life.

View this chart to learn more about what the numbers mean.

What the Numbers Mean
Understanding your readings is easy with the Omron 10 SERIES upper arm blood pressure monitor. The easy-to-read screen displays your readings in large font and labels each number with a tab along the side.

     Systolic Pressure is the top number on the display. It’s the pressure created as your heart contracts to pump blood throughout the body.

     Diastolic Pressure is the bottom number on the display. It’s the pressure between beats, when your heart relaxes.

These numbers combine to give you your blood pressure reading (systolic over diastolic pressure).

How to Monitor + Tips
Your blood pressure numbers often change. For instance, your blood pressure in the morning can be significantly different than at night, when you visit a doctor’s office, or after exercising. By using an Omron 10 SERIES upper arm blood pressure monitor at home, you’re able to detect changes in your blood pressure any time you want.

Monitoring at Home is Easy
To ensure an accurate reading, do not measure your blood pressure within 30 minutes of:

  • Exercising
  • Eating
  • Smoking
  • Drinking Alcohol
  • Bathing

Place the blood pressure arm cuff on your left arm and sit quietly for approximately five minutes with both feet flat on the floor. Then, when you are ready to test, simply press the start button and the Omron monitor will do the rest.

3 thoughts on “Omron BP785 10 Series Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor, Black/white

  1. Excellent Blood Pressure Monitor (Physician Review) *****I got this blood pressure monitor for my husband’s use–he is a physician with high blood pressure. He was not interested in using it to monitor his own blood pressure, but was very interested in using it in his clinic, as he had the manual type (called a sphygmomanometer) and his nurse was showing signs of carpal tunnel syndrome from manually pumping it up for each patient. So I agreed that he could use it there if he would write a review for me. Although this will not give feedback on the use of this monitor for individual use, I think that the review by a physician will be worthwhile and add something to the many reviews already published here. Here is his review:”We just started using the Omron BP785, Series 10, blood pressure monitor in our medical clinic. We have tried other automatic blood pressure monitors before and were not satisfied as the readings were erratic at times. We have been impressed with the accuracy and ease of use of the Omron device.The device is small, light, and has an easy-to-read face that measures 4.75 inches by 6 inches. The back of the device is elevated off the flat surface 3.5 inches, the front is elevated only .75 inches so the device is manufactured to rest on a flat surface and the face is tilted forward towards the user for ease of reading. The readings are in large size numbers also for easy reading.The Omron, Series 10 has many unique features including an automatic calibration check system with dual sensors that automatically check each reading to insure accuracy. Other features include a cuff wrap guide to make sure the cuff is properly applied. The pre-formed cuff provided makes the cuff easy to apply and fits all size upper arms. In the “True Read Mode” the device takes three separate consecutive readings, one minute apart and displays the average of the three readings following the guidelines of the American Heart Association. The device also has an Irregular Heartbeat Detector that alerts the user of any irregular beats which is very helpful in a busy clinic. This allows my nurse to notify me of any patients with a previously unknown irregular heartbeat so I can refer them to a cardiologist ASAP. The device also has a 200 reading memory storage with date and time-stamp for easy research of the last 200 readings.We have checked the Omron’s accuracy against our standard sphygmomanometer and it appears to be very accurate for all three parameters of Systolic BP, Diastolic BP, and Pulse.I would recommend this monitor for home use and even for medical office use without any reservations.”He said that he absolutely would give this product five stars. He has only been using it for about a week, so I will update this review after several months of his using it to see about a hundred patients a week. This would be useful in assessing its long term durability.Highly recommended.*****

  2. Omron 785 Add ons are hard to use Omron Series 10 blood pressure monitor. 3 starsNot as useful/cost effective as the older/simpler models despite the wiz bang enhancements. (for my comparative review of a similar product see ) I have been an Omron user for about 10 years (7 series)from the time that consumer magazines rated their units as tops in accuracy. Arrhythmia or any pulse irregularity will cause problems with many other units, but not the Omron, either the older or the newer models. So what has changed? The display size and the white on black digits are indeed more readable, but the old plain LCD were not much worse. The comfort cuff at first I thought it would be more easy to put on. Its not. The thumb “guide” panel is positioned all wrong, if you put your thumb on the panel, the air tube winds up closer to the outside of the elbow as opposed to the inside where its supposed to be. The air tube length is short, but it is exactly the same length as the old units used to have. The preformed circular shape initially makes you think that putting it on with just one hand would be easier than in the past. Its not. The old style cuff you could leave in a very loose position and slip it on as a sleeve. Don’t think about using the old cuff with the new base unit either. Omron has changed the diameter of the fitting. The old cuff tube flops around in the new size base opening. The unit design is very quirky as well. The on/off and the start/stop are now on one button. Unless you utilize the 3 reading averaging function (pain to use as you have to set it up during the turning on period), each time you want to redo the pressure test, you have to turn off the unit. The enhancements overall are very counterintuitive, the buttons have icons only and do not seem to make any sense. Whoever designed the user interface did not run very many real world tests. There are user A and user B functions, but unless you figure out how to use the “memo icon/averaging” and the day/night button and the left/right = up/down combo button, you will not be able to access the 7 weeks worth of averaging data for each person and for each time of day. Granted this is a very useful function, but even with the user manual in hand you will have to scratch your head a bit to figure it out. I recommend that you do not use the poorly implemented statistical functions in the unit itself and chart the daily readings in a spreadsheet or even on a piece of paper. Caution-I lost the built in averaging data when I unplugged and moved the unit without having batteries in it. The power adapter now comes with the units, and it does work in the older models if you want to do a comparison. In actual use I found the unit to be very consistent, obtaining reading in about 30 seconds. The inflation pressure monitors the pulse and only inflates about 20-30 mm Hg above what the highest expected reading will be. This behavior is about exactly the same as on older units. I have gotten a number of E1 errors, about 20% of the time I use the unit. This is a cuff problem error, the new cuff or error checking does not seem to be as fault tolerant as the older units. Placing the cuff over clothes, starting with the cuff overly loose, or the air tube too far away from the artery seems to generate more errors than before.So in summary the latest and the greatest and more expensive model gets you a lot of gadgets that are not very user friendly. Keep the manual glued to the bottom of the unit, or better yet plot the results on a computer. The display is nice, the cuff is comfortable, but not as easy to adjust, or as fault tolerant as older models.Update: The E1 error is annoying. I get it up to 33% (1 out of 3 measurements). The unit will not work with rechargable batteries (voltage is lower). Starts to inflate, then at about 20-30mm pressure the battery symbol flashes and the unit stops with a E2 error.Update#2: I ran down my second set of batteries (good for about 75 measurements). Knowing that I lost data before, this time I plugged the unit into the AC adapter before changing the batteries. However I lost ALL the data, averages and individual readings, but not the clock interestingly enough. So it seems that if you run the batteries down to the point where the cuff only inflates part way, you have already lost data. My suggestion is to change the batteries as soon as the battery symbol starts to flash, which precludes using the rechargable batteries.

  3. Full-featured monitor I have been using an older version of this monitor, the , for four and a half years. The 780 has held up well, but it gives me higher pressures than what I typically get in my physician’s office; I took it to his office and several readings confirmed that my machine read about 5 points higher than his. My other issue with the 780 is that it too frequently stops with errors, which requires waiting a few minutes and trying again.I have only used the BP785 for a couple of days, but it does read about 5 points lower than the 780, which leads me to believe that when I have my physician check it out it will likely be more in line with the readings he gets with the professional blood pressure cuff. It’s too soon to tell if this machine will result in an annoying number of errors while reading, but I’ve used the Tru-Read setting, which is a nice feature that takes 3 consecutive readings and gives the average, and it recovered from an error automatically by doing an additional reading.I did not find the instruction manual as poor as other reviewers do; perhaps I got a revised version, because mine has a few pages of illustrations that clearly label all the buttons with the terms used in the text. The Quick Start guide does omit a mention of the Tru-Read setting which you must set before you get to the option of setting the date. On the whole the manual is a lot clearer than most manuals I get these days. The 785 has quite a few features that I probably won’t use often; the manual covers them in enough detail that I can figure out how to access them quickly when I want to.The features that I like a lot are: * The Tru-Read function, which takes 3 consecutive readings (you choose the time between readings, 15-120 secs.) and gives an average * An indicator that shows if the cuff is attached properly (which should decrease the number of errors) * An indicator that detects irregularities in the heart beatFeatures that I won’t use on a regular basis include: * Tracking and averaging readings for 2 people * A guest mode that will cause the reading to be omitted from tracked averages * A history of weekly averages, including separate morning and evening averagesThe monitor is quiet and fast. It appears to be accurate (that is, in line with my physician’s readings). It has a lot of features, more than I need, but which I might someday want to use. On the other hand, it is large; it comes with a carrying bag, but it would probably not be a first choice for someone who wants to travel with it a lot. It is expensive; so if you don’t want all the extra features, you can look save about $30 with a basic model.
