At this point, you should be quite familiar (or at least, aware) of the precautionary measures needed to control chronic hypertension.

You should also have familiarized yourself with the finer points of blood pressure, and now be a self-proclaimed King (or Queen) of the Blood Pressure Kingdom!

If not, click here to accept your special backstage pass for a second peek at Lesson 2-- "All About Blood Pressure."

Since your doctor cannot be there by your side all day, every day to follow your blood pressure fluctuations, it may be necessary for you to monitor your own blood pressure regularly at home. This is accomplished with a nifty little gadget known as a blood pressure monitor. (catchy name, huh?)

By the time we're through, you'll have a basic working knowledge of:

  • Why should I monitor my blood pressure at home?
  • What types of monitors are available?
  • What to consider when choosing a monitor
  • How does it work, and how do I get the most accurate reading?
  • How much do they cost?

Assignment # 1

To get the ball rolling, click here for a short quiz on home blood pressure monitoring.

Whew--that wasn't so bad was it? If you thought it was difficult, don't worry--no one knows the results but you. If you thought you could do better (and hey, there's ALWAYS room for improvement), just keep on reading for some valuable information . . .
