Automated blood pressure measurement program

Cards are now a thing of the past! A new generation of automated kiosks has entered our pharmacies. This way, you can easily save your results, print them or send them to yourself via a secure link by email or text message. In addition to measuring your blood pressure with superior accuracy, these new devices measure your BMI (body mass index) as well, which is also an essential indicator when it comes to managing your health. Take good care of yourself, and know that measuring your blood pressure regularly is a fundamental part of preventing and managing serious health issues.

Staying on top of your BP is worth it

A health indicator that mustn’t be overlooked, blood pressure reflects the pressure of the blood on the walls of the arteries. It must be maintained at acceptable levels in order to avoid health complications that can become very serious.

Blood pressure that is too high, i.e., hypertension, is a reliable sign that something may not be exactly right. Hypertension is actually the main risk factor linked to strokes and one of the most significant risk factors with respect to cardiovascular diseases as a whole. Thankfully, early detection of too high blood pressure enables more effective treatment and can help in preventing life-threatening complications.

The challenge lies in the fact that in most cases, symptoms of hypertension tend to go unnoticed. That’s why hypertension is often called a “silent affliction”. It is therefore important even for healthy people to measure their blood pressure regularly in order to make sure everything is in order.

In cases where an individual suffers from chronic hypertension problems (often linked to other health issues), doctors may recommend that blood pressure be taken at various times of the day in order to monitor its evolution. The affected person may have to buy their own blood pressure meter or even rent a prescription BPMD (blood pressure measurement device).

Depending on your needs, pharmacies affiliated with Accès pharma offer various options to help you manage your blood pressure.

If you’re worried about your BP or think it may be time for a routine checkup:

· Opt for a consultation or a simple blood pressure reading with your pharmacist. 

· Drop by the pharmacy and use the automated blood pressure monitoring stand on your own.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art BP kiosks, no need to hang on to any cards — information is sent to you via email or text message on a secure link. That way, you can access your BP history at any time and from any place, for more efficient monitoring.

If your doctor has written a prescription ordering you to take your blood pressure several times each day or week:

· Rent a BPMD (blood pressure measurement device). 

· Get your own blood pressure meter (tensiometer). Your pharmacist can advise and help you to make the best choice among the array of devices available at their pharmacy.
