Tomarse la presión arterial en el hogar

Después de que le diagnostiquen hipertensión arterial, el médico puede pedirle que mantenga un registro de su presión arterial midiéndola en la casa. Hay dispositivos que son fáciles de usar y pueden ayudarle a monitorear su presión arterial en el hogar. Practique con el médico o la enfermera para verificar que usted esté tomándose la presión arterial correctamente. Compare la máquina que tiene en la casa con la del consultorio del médico para estar seguro de que las lecturas sean correctas.
