How Can Urgent Care Help In Controlling Blood Pressure?

Whether you need urgent treatment to lower your BP or you’re coming for a follow-up to manage your high blood pressure, our team provides you with proper treatment and care according to your condition.

During your visit, the doctor discusses your clinical condition to diagnose, treat, and monitor high blood pressure. Here are some brief steps your provider might take to keep your blood pressure in check.

Review your past medical history: During your first appointment, the provider mostly screens your past medical history, asking you about comorbidities, ongoing medications, dietary patterns, and blood pressure readings.

Monitoring blood pressure at home: If you’re on a video or phone call, the provider might also ask you to monitor your blood pressure reading at home to review the results during an appointment.

Provide personalized treatment plan: Depending upon your condition, the provider will prescribe high blood pressure medicines to manage your blood pressure.

General health guidance: During your visit, you will also receive personalized advice on lifestyle changes, dietary intake, and effective stress management techniques unique to your health profile which could help managing your blood pressure.

Address concerns and questions: You can also utilize telehealth, video or phone appointments to address any concerns regarding your blood pressure medicines, weight management, or anything related to your health. 

What Should Be The Normal Blood Pressure?

Ideally, in a healthy human being, normal blood pressure is between 90/60 mmHg and 120/80 mmHg. According to the American Heart Association, a person has stage 1 hypertension if the BP is above 130/90, whereas if the readings go above 140/ 90, then the person has stage 2 hypertension. 

Family Urgent Care can help you diagnose the stages of hypertension and provide you with a complete outlook on controlling your blood pressure and keeping it within normal levels.
