Blood Pressure Check

What is Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is the force of the blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. Each time the heart beats (about 60-70 times a minute at rest), it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is at its highest when the heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When the heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure.

What are the risks of High Blood Pressure?

Regular Blood pressure check is important because the higher your blood pressure is, the higher your risk of the following:

  1. Stroke.

  2. Enlarged Heart.

  3. Heart Failure.

  4. Kidney Disease/Failure.

  5. Peripheral Vascular Disease.

  6. Heart Attack.
