Blood Pressure Monitoring

HYPERTENSION
control & Prevention

Nearly half of Americans have high blood pressure, called hypertension. However, only 1 in 4 have their condition under control. 

Hypertension is called the Silent Killer, because it can lead to strokes, heart disease, and other health complications without showing any warning signs or symptoms. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked.

we’re here for you

Getting your blood pressure under control may be new to you, but it can be done!  We are here for you. Please consult with your Care Team about any additional questions that you have.  

You can get your blood pressure checked at a doctor’s office, at some pharmacies, and remotely with a home blood pressure monitor.

Talk with you primary care provider about how many times you should be measuring your blood pressure.  It is generally recommended that you take your blood pressure at least twice a day , 2 minutes apart.  However, people with hypertension may need to measure their blood pressure more often.  

Measuring your blood pressure regularly from home can help you and your doctor get a more complete picture of what is going on with your blood pressure.
