High blood pressure is an increasingly common complaint in emergency departments, but should it be?
If you’re taking medication for high blood pressure, chances are your doctor told you to buy a cuff so you can check it daily at home. Maybe you sometimes also check it when you see one of those public blood pressure machines in a pharmacy. But do you know what to do if your numbers climb one day, even though you feel fine? A new Canadian study suggests that if you’re like many people, you’re going to rush to the nearest hospital emergency department. And that might not be the right thing to do.
