Worried about Blood Pressure?
Book your appointment with Consultant Cardiologist Dr Gill
A person’s blood pressure varies from one minute to the next, depending on what you’re thinking or feeling, level of anxiety/stress, pain or general mood. A 24 hour blood pressure monitor or an ambulatory blood pressure monitor is one of the most efficient ways to get accurate readings of the patient’s blood pressure levels over a period of 24 hours.
A small and portable device is used to measure the readings and can be worn by the patient around his/her arm. The device makes use of an internal clock in order to record readings after a regular interval of time over the period of 24 hours. By using this type of a monitor, the patient can feel free to go about his natural everyday routine instead of being confined to a clinic or hospital.
