A blood pressure test measures the pressure in your arteries as your heart pumps. You might have a blood pressure test as a part of a routine doctor's appointment at Southwestern Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute or as a screening for high blood pressure (hypertension).
Having a blood pressure test is a routine part of most medical appointments.
Dr. Lookman Lawal may order separate appointments for repeat blood pressure checks to look for ongoing health conditions, including elevated blood pressure, high blood pressure (hypertension), low blood pressure (hypotension), heart disease or other conditions.
Even if Dr. Lawal doesn't think you have high or low blood pressure as an ongoing condition, your blood pressure is important information for him. It can provide information about your general health.
Dr. Lawal may recommend that, in addition to regular blood pressure tests at Southwestern Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute in El Paso, TX, you perform blood pressure tests at home. There are automated home blood pressure monitors that are easy to use.
