Take Care of Yourself with a Blood Pressure Unit from Graham-Field.  

Blood pressure management is one of the most important things we can do to maintain our health and it is essential in preventing heart disease and stroke.  According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of adults in the U.S. have high blood pressure[1]. With that in mind, and since May is National Blood Pressure Awareness month, how can we prevent high blood pressure in ourselves and our loved ones? The following suggestions are offered by The American Heart Association[2]:

  • CHOOSE a healthy diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and nuts.  
  • LOWER your sodium intake. Watch out for processed foods with high sodium. 
  • BE MORE ACTIVE. Just a little over two hours a week of physical activity can make all the difference towards good health! 
  • MANAGE STRESS. Set reasonable expectations for what you can get done. Learn to say no when possible. Take a short break during the day to relax. Practice gratitude and joy

We delight here at Graham-Field because we have the privilege of offering a full line of blood pressure units that assist in monitoring blood pressure readings. Graham-Field’s range of units can meet the needs of individuals at home and professionals in the medical field.  Individuals appreciate options such as our wrist BP units, and “table top” easy to use automatic units.

Physicians and others in the medical field benefit from using our Professional Aneroid Sphygmomanometer. These units come with a cotton cuff with touch and hold closure, a zippered carrying case, and a one year calibration warranty.

So, as we finish up the month of May, be blood pressure aware! Take care of yourself and others through healthy habits that keep blood pressure in check at healthy readings.
