Hypertension

When your blood pressure is too high in your blood vessels, you have hypertension, better known as “high blood pressure.” Most of the time, people who suffer from this have no symptoms, so it is not always noticeable without checking your pressure. Its complications can lead to a stroke or heart attack. 

To prevent this from happening, Accès pharma chez Walmart-affiliated pharmacies offer you several services to help you closely monitor your blood pressure: 

  • Blood pressure measurement;
  • Blood pressure follow-up consultations;
  • Rental of blood pressure measurement devices (ABPM);
  • Blood pressure measurement kiosks. 

There are several ways to take your blood pressure at the pharmacy: you can have the pharmacist do it or you can do it yourself at our blood pressure measurement kiosks, situated close to the prescriptions counter. In all Accès pharma chez Walmart-affiliated pharmacies, you can the most up-to-date technology to measure and monitor your blood pressure. With the automated kiosk and the smart monitoring card you can: 

  • record and save your blood pressure readings on a special smart card;
  • print your last ten readings to give to your doctor or pharmacist; 
  • securely access your blood pressure file confidentially using the access code written on the back of your smart card. 

Ask your pharmacist for your blood pressure monitoring smart card. You may have to pay a minimal fee for the card, which is valid for a year.

Ambulatory ABPM 

Some of our affiliated pharmacies rent, with a prescription, a blood pressure monitoring device that measures ambulatory blood pressure, ABPM. 

The ABPM can be proposed when a doctor wishes to monitor a patient’s blood pressure for a whole day. It provides a blood pressure profile over a 24-hour period and checks the variations in blood pressure at different times of the day. Please contact your Accès pharma chez Walmart-affiliated pharmacy to check the availability of this type of device and the rental fee.    

Home monitor

Please talk to your pharmacist for more information about purchasing or renting various monitors to help you monitor your blood pressure. Several models are available in the pharmacy and your pharmacist is well placed to give you advice about the best device to meet your needs. 

Don’t hesitate to talk to your Accès pharma chez Walmart-affiliated pharmacist about any questions you may have about this service.
