Measuring high blood pressure

Measuring high blood pressure

More than half of Canadian family doctors still use manual devices to measure blood pressure, an outdated technology that sometimes leads to misdiagnosis. A study by Janusz Kaczorowski that appeared in the March 2017 issue of Canadian Family Physician concluded that 20% of people being treated for high blood pressure do not actually have the problem and do not need medication.
