High Blood Pressure - St. Ben's Nurses


High blood pressure is a common condition in which the force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.

You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke.
High blood pressure generally develops over many years, and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected by periodic blood pressure checks

Stop by the Nurses Blood Pressure Clinic after all the Masses on Dec 6th and 7th. We are located in the room next to the Sacred Heart Altar.
