11 Monitoring NBP
During measurements the cuff pressure is displayed instead of the units and the repeat time. An early
systolic value gives you a preliminary indication of the systolic blood pressure during measurement.

Starting and Stopping Measurements

Use the Setup menu or SmartKeys to start and stop measurements.

Select each sequence in turn and select the number of measurements and the time interval between
the measurements.

measurement of the cycle.
