BEURER BM55 Upper Arm FIG 1

Target group
It is designed for self-measurement by adults in the home environment and is suitable for users whose upper arm circumference is within the range printed on the cuff.

Indication/clinical benefits

The user can record their blood pressure and pulse values quickly and easily using the device. The recorded values are classified according to internationally applicable guidelines and evaluated graphically. Furthermore, the device can detect any irregular heartbeats that occur during measurement and inform the user via a symbol in the display. The device saves the recorded measurements and can also output average values of previous measurements. The recorded data can provide healthcare service providers with support during the diagnosis and treatment of blood pressure problems and therefore plays a part in the long-term monitoring of the user’s health.

Intended use

Intended use
The blood pressure monitor is intended for the fully automatic, non-invasive measurement of arterial blood pressure and pulse values on the upper arm.

Initial use

BEURER BM55 Upper Arm FIG 3

Inserting the batteries

  • Remove the battery compartment lid on the rear of the device.
  • Insert four 1.5 V AAA (alkaline type LR03) batteries. Do not use rechargeable batteries.
  • Close the battery compartment lid again carefully.


  •  It is recommended that you measure your blood pressure twice a day: once in the morning after getting up and once in the evening.
  • You should therefore avoid taking measurements during stressful periods.
  • Do not take a measurement within 30 minutes of eating, drinking, smoking or exercising.
  • Before the initial blood pressure measurement, make sure always to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Furthermore, if you want to take several measurements in succession, make sure always to wait for at least 1 minute between the individual measurements.
  • Repeat the measurement if you are unsure of the measured value.

Measuring the resting indicator (using the HSD diagnosis)

The most frequent error made when measuring blood pressure is taking the measurement when not at rest (hemodynamic stability), which means that both the systolic and the diastolic blood pressures are distorted. While measuring blood pressure, the device automatically determines whether you are at rest or not.

GREEN: Haemodynamic stability
Measurement of the systolic and diastolic pressure is increased when the circulatory system is sufficiently at rest and is a very reliable indicator of resting blood pressure. The blood pressure measurement must be taken when the patient is physically and mentally rested, as it will be the basis for diagnosing the blood pressure level and regulating the patient’s medical treatment. The blood pressure measurements taken when the circulatory system was at rest represent particularly reliable results.

RED: Lack of hemodynamic stability
It is very probable that the systolic and diastolic blood pressures have not been measured whilst the patient is at rest and the resting blood pressure measurement has therefore been distorted. Repeat the measurement after a rest and relaxation period of at least five minutes. Go to a sufficiently quiet and comfortable spot and remain there calmly; close your eyes, breathe deeply and evenly and try to relax.

Cleaning and maintenance

  • Clean the device and cuff carefully using a slightly damp cloth only.
  • Do not use any cleaning agents or solvents.
  • Under no circumstances hold the device and cuff underwater, as this can cause liquid to enter and damage the device and cuff.
  • If you store the device and cuff, do not place heavy objects on the device and cuff. Remove the batteries.
