Blood Pressure Monitoring Program

Introducing Our Blood Pressure Monitoring Program for South Los Angeles Families!

High blood pressure, also known as HBP or hypertension, occurs when the force of blood flowing through your blood vessels remains consistently high. This condition, if left untreated, can cause significant damage to your circulatory system, ultimately contributing to heart attacks, strokes, and various other health risks.

You’re not alone if you’re dealing with high blood pressure – nearly half of American adults face this issue, and many aren’t even aware of it. This is where our Blood Pressure Monitoring Program, designed for home use, becomes invaluable.

With our program, you can conveniently monitor your blood pressure from the comfort of your home, taking a crucial step in safeguarding your health. Don’t overlook high blood pressure any longer. Join our Blood Pressure Monitoring Program today and regain control of your health and well-being.

How to Monitor Your Blood Pressure at Home

Be still. Do not smoke, drink caffeinated beverages or exercise within 30 minutes before measuring your blood pressure. Empty your bladder and ensure at least five minutes of quiet rest before measurements.

Sit correctly. Sit with your back straight and supported (on a dining chair rather than a sofa). Your feet should be flat on the floor. Do not cross your legs. Support your arm on a flat surface (such as a table) with the upper arm at heart level. Ensure the bottom of the cuff is placed directly above the bend of the elbow.

Measure at the same time every day. It is best to take your readings daily. Unless, you had a change in treatment. If you had a change in treatment, begin measuring two weeks after the change.

Take multiple readings and record the results. Each time you measure, take two or three readings one minute apart and record the results using our printable (PDF). Click here to learn more about understanding your blood pressure numbers.

Note: A diagnosis of high blood pressure must be confirmed with a medical professional. A doctor should also evaluate any unusually low blood pressure readings.
