High Blood Pressure Treatment Manhattan NYC


High blood pressure, also called HBP or hypertension, is known as the silent killer because it often has no signs or symptoms.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as one in three people have hypertension, and only about half have it under control. You can keep your high blood pressure under good control with the help of a blood pressure specialist in NYC at New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center.

High blood pressure happens when the force of blood pushing against your blood vessel walls is consistently too high. Every time your heart beats, it creates pressure that pushes blood through your arteries, veins, and capillaries. Your family doctor can monitor your blood pressure and even prescribe medication to keep it in check. But when you see a medical practitioner with high blood pressure, you benefit from the extensive training and experience of a medical professional whose focus is keeping your heart healthy.

Your blood pressure readings give your local heart specialist or cardiologists at our state-of-the-art practice important information about your heart health. The first number in a blood pressure reading represents the systolic pressure, which is the pressure required to pump the blood out of your heart and into the circulatory system. The bottom number, or diastolic pressure, is created as your heart rests between heartbeats.

Knowing Your Blood Pressure Numbers
The average readings that indicate a normal blood pressure is 120/80 or lower. You’re considered to have high blood pressure if your systolic blood pressure is 130 or higher and your diastolic pressure higher than 80 and stays that high over time. Infrequent spikes may be nothing to worry about, but persistent high readings can lead to serious consequences, including a heart attack or stroke.

Some people experience high blood pressure readings only at the doctor’s office. This is known as white coat hypertension. If you fall into this category, you get so nervous going to the doctor’s that your blood pressure spikes. Your blood pressure specialist may recommend that you wear an ambulatory blood pressure monitor temporarily or check your blood pressure at home. The monitor records your blood pressure as you move around doing normal daily activities. It allows your New York cardiologist to get a more accurate reading of your blood pressure.
