CHAPTER ONE

 

High Blood Pressure Basics

You walk into your doctor’s office and hop up on the examining table, and a nurse or physician’s assistant comes in and takes your blood pressure. He or she than scribbles a few numbers on a sheet of paper (or enters them into a computer) and prepares to leave the room. Before the health-care individual leaves, you might inquire, “How’s my blood pressure?”

But what exactly do you know about blood pressure? Do you understand the significance of the figures your health-care professional tells you?
