How to control pressure surges in isolation.
Mechanical sphygmomanometers show reliable figures, but the pressure they measure. For the house it is better to buy electronic equivalents with shoulder cuff. The cuff size should correspond to girth hands, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Telegraph.
The measurements were as accurate as possible, follow the recommendations:
- to measure the pressure in the morning and evening at the same time;
- to carry out measurements before eating, medications, any physical stress;
- no alcohol and caffeine: they are misleading testimony and, in General, contraindicated for hypertensive patients;
- do not measure pressure during emotional arousal;
- 5 minutes before the measurement to sit down and relax;
- legs should not be crossed, hand on the table;
- the cuff is worn 2 cm above the elbow bend, the wire is on the inner side of the hand;
- for a more accurate result to do the measurements twice, with an interval of 1-2 minutes;
- all measurements to record in paper or electronic diary, then provide the doctor.
Minimize the risks
Since about 30% of all cases of hypertension associated with consumption of large amounts of salt, waive any and all salty foods. Exclude fatty and smoked food, alcohol.
Now have time to cook, so forget about the delivery: food can be salted with an excess of spices.
Eat as much fruit and vegetables, cook whole-grain cereals, lean meat and fish. Don’t forget about beans: they are high-quality protein and magnesium, which helps to stabilize the pressure.
Do not sit, move every day. Let it be easy to charge or just home cleaning.Go
