The facts about blood pressure

The Facts about Blood Pressure

The facts about blood pressure

Our pharmacies offer free blood pressure checks using automated kiosks that allow you to track your blood pressure history and report it to your health care professional. We encourage you to talk with our knowledgeable pharmacists about your blood pressure readings. Our pharmacists can also assess your risk for heart disease and provide you with valuable information to help maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What is blood pressure?

Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels. Blood pressure normally rises and falls throughout the day. But if it stays high for a long time, it can damage your heart and lead to health problems.

Blood pressure numbers and what they mean:

Your blood pressure is recorded as two numbers:

  • Systolic blood pressure (the first number) – indicates how much pressure your blood is exerting against your artery walls when the heart beats.
  • Diastolic blood pressure (the second number) – indicates how much pressure your blood is exerting against your artery walls while the heart is resting between beats.

What is high blood Pressure?

Note: A diagnosis of high blood pressure must be confirmed with a medical professional. A doctor should also evaluate any unusually low blood pressure readings.

Air Quality and Asthma

Male using inhaler

The Salt Lake winters, although beautiful, bring along the valley inversion which includes poor air quality and dry, cold air. If you suffer from asthma like I do, winter often brings a dreadful feeling of caution as you look to the east and can’t even see the mountains. The winter inversion is when warm air traps a layer of cold air in the valley, trapping pollutants. The longer the inversion lasts, the more pollutants make themselves at home near the valley floor, making the likelihood of asthma complications greater. Asthma sufferers have increased chances of upper respiratory infections, as well as labored breathing and possibly greater risk of attacks. Cold, dry air can also cause airways to come irritated and swollen, worsening asthma symptoms

Some helpful tips to limit your risk of infection or attack include:

  1. Limit your outdoor activities during inversions. Wait to walk the dog, jog/run or view the Christmas lights until the inversion has lifted, usually when a storm or wind comes through and pushes it out.
  2. Replace your filters inside on a regular basis. This ensures your indoor air is kept clean and healthy.
  3. Use your preventative inhaler before heading outside and be sure to always carry it with you.
  4. If you have asthma or COPD, be sure to get a flu shot every year and pneumonia shot at least once before age 65 as recommended by the CDC.
