All Omron blood pressure monitors are clinically proven accurate. They are clinically validated to be within the following: - Blood pressure: within +/- 3 mmHg or 2 percent - Pulse: within +/- 5 percent of reading This meets or exceeds the AAMI (Association of Medical Instrumentation) standards. To understand the accuracy levels of other manufacturer’s blood pressure monitors, you need to contact them. It is always important to investigate accuracy & ease of use before purchasing a home blood pressure monitor.

It is quite possible that your readings may be different from your upper arm to your wrist as blood pressure varies throughout the human body. All Omron blood pressure monitors, whether upper arm or wrist, are validated in the same manner & have the same accuracy specifications.

Distilled water or purified water cannot be used alone as a drug solution for nebulization.

Sterilization with chemical (including alcohol) might transform the surface of the product. Do not sterilize it with any chemical.
You can clean the pencil thermometer with a cloth containing neutral detergent. 

Common Misconceptions About Nebulizers

#1 The Bigger And/Or Louder The Nebulizer, The More Powerful It Is.

The size and the noise level of the nebulizers are dependent on the technology it was developed with. According to the European Respiratory Society (ERS) guidelines, particle size, aerosol output and aerosol output rate are the key performance indicators.

#2 The More Mist Produced, The More Effective The Treatment.

Visibility of the aerosol produced is dependent on the particle size. Higher mist visibility suggests larger particle size, which is suitable for upper airway treatment. Whereas, most asthma medication targets the lower airways. Look for nebulizers that produce the right sized particles (MMAD) for the most effective treatment.

#3 One Nebulizer Can Treat Both Airways

Not every nebulizer comes with the capability to target both airways. Some nebulizer models have the added feature to adjust the particle size produced. Select your nebulizer based on your target treatment area.

Fever is not by itself an illness but a defense mechanism. However, if it rises above 39.4 °C, some actions have to be taken to reduce it. It meant that the body is no longer able to control its inner temperature. This can either be done by using antipyretics (medications against fever), or by taking a cooling bath. The way of treatment should be defined by a doctor, based on the underlying cause, the age & condition of the patient. Infectious diseases require anti-pathogenic drugs. By all means, extra attention should be paid to increased water-intake, to compensate for dehydration. Young children with even low fever require special attention & immediate treatment aiming to reduce the body temperature (cooling bath or cold pack first, before turning to medications). If an infant younger than 4 months old has rectal temperature above 38 °C , immediately call your doctor or go to an emergency room, because it could be a sign of a potentially life-threatening infection. The same action must be taken if any child has a fever above 40 °C.

Yes! The most accurate optimal values derive from rectal measurement: 37.0-37.5 °C (98.6-99.5 °F), while oral measurement produces slightly lower results: 36.8° ± 0.4 °C (98.2° ± 0.7 °F). Measurements taken on the skin (armpit, ear, forehead) gives the lowest values out of these types: 36.5 °C (97.7 °F), since these correlate relatively poorly with the core body temperature.

The probe is the most delicate part of the ear thermometer. For the main unit, wipe off dirt on the main unit with a soft dry cloth. Never wash the unit or clean with a cleaner containing abrasive, thinner, or benzine. 

For infrared sensor, when it gets dirty, wipe it lightly with a soft dry cloth or a cotton swab. Do not wipe the infrared sensor with a tissue paper or a towel.

1. Sit quietly for about 5 minutes with both feet flat on the floor.
2. Do not smoke, bathe, drink caffeinated drinks/alcohol or exercise 30 minutes before measurement
3. Measure at the same time every day
4. Take multiple readings & record the results using a diary or an app

Yes, Smart Elite+ HEM-7600T can be used by multiple users. The same blood pressure monitor can be synced with multiple mobile devices.

For both models, after a reading is taken, be sure to sync the reading with the desired mobile device. Once that is done, the same reading cannot be transferred to another mobile device. Hence you can repeat the same process with a different user and different mobile device.

A simple, drug-free solution for relief of muscle & joint pain. Under your personalized control, our TENS units deliver gentle massage-like pulses, providing on the spot pain relief. Available without a prescription, Omron TENS unit may help relieve pain in about 15 minutes.

TENS relieves pain in two ways:

Standard High-Frequency Treatment
1. Pulse Rate is set to 60 pulses per second or more.
2. Produces a steady "buzzing" or "tingling" feeling between the electrodes
3. Produces an electrical signal that is stronger than the pain signal that the body produces. Because the signal is perceived as stronger, it effectively blocks the pain signal from travelling along nerves to the brain.
4. Effective for acute pain

Low-Frequency Treatment
1. Pulse Rate is below 10 pulses per second or at "burst" mode.
2. Produces visible muscle twitching & "tapping" or "pulsating" feeling
3. The body reacts to this type of stimulation by releasing "endorphins" (pain-killing chemicals produced naturally in the body)
4. These endorphins act as a chemical nerve block, effectively reducing pain by interrupting the flow of pain signals along the nerves.
5. Effective for chronic pain, stiffness & numbness

This unit measures the temperature of the surface of the forehead by sensing infrared emission of the skin at the measured point & then calculates the oral-equivalent value using a unique algorithm based on actual body temperature survey data.

They should be a minimum of 1 inch apart on clean, dry, healthy skin; the pads should never touch or overlap.

Omron Body Composition Monitor estimates the body fat percentage by the Bioelectrical Impedance (BI) method. Muscles or blood vessels are body tissues having a high water content that conduct electricity easily. Body fat is tissue that has low electric conductivity. Omron Body Composition Monitor sends an extremely weak electrical current of 50 kHz and less than 500 μA through your body to determine the amount of fat tissue. This low electrical current is not felt while operating the Monitor. The BI Method safely combines the electric resistance with the distance of the electricity conducted. In order for the Monitor to determine body composition, it uses the electrical impedence, along with your height, weight, age and gender information to generate results based on Omron's proprietary data of body composition.
