Blood pressure checks
The importance of monitoring your blood pressure...
Some experts call it the silent killer. High blood pressure (hypertension) most often has no symptoms,so a significant number of people who have it might not realize it.
Untreated high blood pressure can damage organs over time and lead to stroke or heart disease. Because our pressure changes constantly depending on what we are doing,experts recommend people at risk or people who already have high blood pressure closely monitor it,either weekly or even daily.
One of the many services the Falcon Fire Department offers is free blood pressure checks.
