Taking accurate blood pressure measurements

Accurate blood pressure measurement is crucial for managing cardiovascular health. This blog post explores the benefits of managing blood pressure more aggressively, the challenges with current measurement methods, and the potential for continuous monitoring devices.

The importance of monitoring your blood pressure

A blood pressure test checks if your blood pressure is healthy, or if it’s high or low. Blood pressure is the term used to describe the strength with which your blood pushes on the sides of your arteries as it’s pumped around your body. The medical term for high blood pressure is hypertension, which means your blood pressure is too high and your heart is working harder when pumping blood around your body.

Checking your blood pressure regularly and sharing the results with your GP practice can help your GP to understand your blood pressure. Your GP can then offer you advice and support to avoid serious problems, such as heart attacks, strokes and other health conditions.

Alternatively you can ask your GP for more information.
