Hypertension Assessment


What Is It?

Hypertension is high blood pressure. Unfortunately, unlike a cold or a sprained wrist, hypertension has few noticeable symptoms. Many factors in our lives can cause hypertension including stress, family history, being overweight, and other medical conditions.

How Is It Done?

The aim of a hypertension assessment is to confirm your high blood pressure, evaluate potential causes and formulate the next steps in your treatment plan. We conduct various tests within our treatment rooms, ask you various questions and gain a good understanding of your lifestyle, family history and other factors that may be influencing your high blood pressure. Often a 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure monitor will be needed, which we organise.
