How to Use Wrist Blood Pressure Monitor
Hello, Today I will be showing you the wrist blood pressure monitor, brought to you by Easy Home. This monitor features your blood pressure measurement, your pulse rate measurement, and the result storage, which stores up to 60 previous measurement. But measurements may be inaccurate if taken in the following circumstances within 1 hour after dinner or drinking, immediate measurement after tea, coffee, or smoking, within 20 minutes after taking a bath, when talking or moving your fingers, or in a very cold environment. It is best to take the measurement 35 minutes after resting. When first using the unit or.
Changing the batteries try taking 2 or 3 readings to get an average measurement. First remove all accessories from your left wrist, if you know you have poor circulation in your left wrist, I would advise using your right one. Then your going to apply the cuff to your wrist, with your palm facing up and position the edge of the cuff about 1 to 1.5 cm below the base of your wrist. You can use your finger as a guideline. Make sure you leave no room between the cuff and your skin. It is very important to position the blood pressure wrist.
Monitor at the level of your heart to get the most accurate reading. Heres a tip try bending your elbow so the display can be parallel to your heart. The unit can be closer to your chest but does not have to be pressing on the chest. Proceed by pressing the startstop button to turn on the monitor and it will begin getting your reading. As you can see here the blood pressure monitor will begin inflating and measuring, the heart that is being displayed represents your heart beat. If you see this hand symbol, it means there.
Is a movement error and you should stabilize your arm for a more accurate reading. If you see this particular heart symbol it means you have an irregular heartbeat. You will then see the results displayed on the LCD screen. On the left side of the monitor there is an arrow which represents your blood pressure classification and it is broken down into 5 categories. On the bottom left, there is a date and time which can be adjusted from the settings. After you receive your result, you can press the startstop button to turn.
Hemorrhagic Vs. Ischemic Stroke
When it comes to a health problem as serious as stroke, it's good and potentially lifesaving to stay informed. I'm Erin White and this is a health feature. According to the CDC, stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. Managing other conditions like high blood pressure can reduce your risk of stroke, and there are also other lifestyle factors under your control. Strokes come in two basic versions hemorrhagic and ischemic. An ischemic stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain becomes blocked. Most strokes.
In the US are ischemic strokes, according to the CDC. Dr. Chaouki Khoury, a neurologist and director of neurology education and research at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and an associate professor of neurology at Texas AM, expands on why an ischemic stroke may occur Ischemic strokes occur for one of three reasons Either you have a heart condition that predisposes you to form blood clots that then travel up to the brain and cause the stroke or you have disease of the blood vessels themselves, such as blood vessels that are damaged by high.
Blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol with cholesterol deposit on the inner surface of the blood vessels causing narrowing and blood clot formation or you have a condition where the blood itself has a tendency to clot. This can be either genetic these are people who have an inherited condition that cause the blood to clot or it's acquired. People with cancers for example, their blood tends to clot more A hemorrhagic stroke, on the other hand, is caused by bleeding in the brain. Dr. Khoury explains that this type of stroke may occur due to the weakening of blood vessels most.
Commonly due to high blood pressure that is not being treated or not being treated enough. However, there are other possible causes. Other conditions include certain vascular malformations so if the blood vessels are formed wrong, they can bleed. And there's a third condition that occurs in older patients. This is called amyloid angiopathy. Don't worry about the name but it's the same disease process as in Alzheimer's, where you have amyloid deposits in the blood vessels leading to the blood vessels being weak and leaking on their own. If you do have a stroke, prompt treatment may increase your chance of survival and decrease.
Stroke, clogged arteries and atherosclerosis
Your arteries, a system of tubes that transport blood around your body. Over time, the buildup of fatty material can damage and clog arteries, restricting the blood flow this is known as atherosclerosis and can lead to heart attacks and strokes. There are several causes including high cholesterol which can clog your arteries over time high blood pressure which can damage areas in your artery walls, making it easier for fatty material to build up over time, and smoking where chemicals in tobacco smoke can also damage arteries, leading to.
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Rx Combo Approved
Together, two medications for pulmonary arterial hypertension PAH may help patients even more than one pill alone. I'm Gabe Garza with your latest health news. The FDA recently approved Letairis in combination with Adcirca to treat PAH. The combination of these drugs appeared to slow the progression of PAH and reduce the risk of hospitalization. PAH is high blood pressure in the arteries to the lungs. With PAH, the blood vessels that carry blood from the heart to the lungs, become narrow and hard. Over time, this can eventually overwork the heart, possibly leading to heart failure. Patients taking both drugs were less.

Case Study 18 John Severe Sugar Cravings And IBS
Thanks for checking out my tutorial again. This is another case history. This is quite a personal one for me because it involves my father. I'm going to read this out to you from my book, Candida Crusher, and then we'll give you some narration after that. We'll talk a bit about it. My father bought several Candida books in the 1980s after suffering from digestive problems for many, many years. He had so many different examinations by bowel specialists, gastroenterologists, that I lost count. A family friend suggested he might have a bowel problem after watching him eat a whole pack of sweet biscuits one.
Afternoon. But then again, Dad liked his cookies, ice cream, and many cups of coffee with several sugars, and he continued to like sweet foods right up until he died in 2004. His freezer was full of ice cream, and I found a few dozen cans of sweetened condensed milk in his pantry and many packets of cookies there as well. In fact, I probably counted over 100 packets of cookies. His weight had bloomed to over 250 pounds and his height was 5 foot 11 inches. His blood pressure was sky high at 190110 on occasion.
If his blood pressure was checked by a doctor. Dad died of a massive stroke at the age of 72. Like any son, I love my dad, but I found he'd had a total lack of disregard for his diet. He simply ate whatever taste good, as he used to put it. And when a person tells me they like something that tastes good, it usually means it's something sweet. Dad continually had flatulence, bloating, and complained of all manner of bowel problems like constipation and diarrhea. The foods he craved were always calling his name, as.
I put it, and he responded by consuming them in vast quantities. Dad was an emotional person who solved many problems by eating, and generally, the foods he would consume were sweet by nature. I couldn't help my dad. After all, he was my dad, and I've learned over the years not to give out health advice to friends or relations that were unsolicited. It almost always falls on deaf ears. I can only help those who come to me asking for advice, and there's a commitment. Usually people pay for that advice. Do you have any unresolved emotional issues.
Are you eating for emotional comfort I've written many articles on emotional eating with people, and this can be at the root cause of a lot of eating disorders, binge eating, weight gain, can't lose weight. People often eat or drink a lot of alcohol because of the emotional hurt inside. Dad was remarkable. He had so many colonoscopies, endoscopies, CAT scans, xrays. He got poked and prodded by so many doctors. And in the end, he basically said, They're all nuts. They can't find what's wrong with me. When, in fact, the problem was right in his own hands all the time. It was a packet of cookies.
Or it might be a half a gallon of ice cream he would eat for lunch one day. And he was always burping, bloating and farting. Farting like a horse at times, which he took great delight in. If you've got lots of bloating and farting, especially, this is the beginning of the end of your digestive system. Continual flatulence and bloating is a sign of massive fermentation dysbiosis. Flatulence is not a problem for most people in just a small amount of gas we will pass. And generally, when you lie.
Down, you have this, but some people fart constantly. And when you've got these kind of problems, it signifies you've got the beginning of a serious bowel problem. Time to make some changes. Have a think about this. What can you do if you've got this kind of a bowel problem Are you eating this kind of sugar eating these kind of cookies and ice cream This could be really at the root cause of your problem with Candida. Emotional addiction. Binge eating for the wrong kind of reasons. Have a think.
Drug Classifications This discussion will focus on drug classifications. The food and drug administration, or FDA, is responsible for determining the safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals and drugs that are used in the livestock industry. They are also responsible for determining the market status of how the drugs are classified. Their classification depends in part whether it is possible to prepare an adequate direction for use so that producers know how to use them safely and efficiently and whether or not a layperson can use the drug safely and effectively. There are two basic types of drugs. Over the counter drugs and prescription.
Drugs. For over the counter drugs, they can be purchased from multiple sources. One of the cautions that needs to be given however is that when you are buying over the counter drugs, make sure that those products have been stored properly under the right temperature and light conditions so that they remain efficacious. Over the counter drugs must be used as directed on the label. You cannot change the dose and you cannot give the dose by any other route than that is specified on the label. Prescription drugs on the other hand have the potential for toxicity and other harmful effects. They.
May have a unique method of use, such as special needle being required, or maybe a special route of administration. They may require other special considerations for use, such as the safety to humans or the animal or the impact on the environment. If they are used incorrectly, we could have an affect on safety or the environment. They can only be used by dispensing, or on the order of a licensed veterinarian. Let me repeat that. Prescription drugs can only be used by dispensing, or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
