Proper blood pressure management

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay is helping with proper blood pressure management.

Oftentimes blood pressure measurement is done improperly which may affect results and clinical decision-making.

Patients should sit comfortably for a few minutes with feet uncrossed, flat on the floor, and proper cuff size should be used based on arm size.  Arm should be supported at heart level.

 It may be demonstrated by a nurse or physician at your next visit.
