Blood Pressure Screening

Did you know that the average blood pressure is usually usually about 120 (systolic) over 80 (diastolic)? The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to get it measured as most people with high blood pressure will not notice any symptoms. High blood pressure (also called hypertension) causes silent damage to the blood vessels and the heart. If untreated this damage progresses over time and may result in stroke or heart attack. These serious events occur at a younger age in people with high blood pressure than in people with normal blood pressure.
