May Measurement Month: Get involved to increase awareness on elevated blood pressure
Neil Poulter stresses that, although high BP is considered a boring topic by some, it is crucial to be aware of it before it can be treated properly. He shares successes of previous editions of May Measurement month and is determined to make it a success again in 2019. You too, can get involved in raising awareness.
Awareness of elevated blood pressure is too low among both patients and physicians, given that it puts persons at elevated risk of CV disease. May Measurement Month is an international effort to raise awareness on the importance of knowing one's blood pressure.
