Exclamation Health issues

Okay ladies and gentlemen we have to talk...............

Please get your blood pressure checked and if it is high get it treated. Twice this week I had mid 40's males come in with massive brain bleeds related to high blood pressure (hypertension) 292/154 in one case and in the other, it came down to 264/140 after IV blood pressure meds were given by the air ambulance in route.

Don't leave your families and us way to soon. I was going to say "sorry about posting a downer topic" but if it causes one of y'all to get checked and treated then I'm not sorry a bit.

It's hard to see patient's in this condition, it's even harder to see the families.

Take care of yourselves,
Craig

Thats too bad Craig.
Good advice though...I am lucky and have consistantly pretty low bp. 120/85.

on a side note-I just had an epidural shot 3weeks ago and afterwards my bp dropped to 91/55 with a heart rate of 50... I almost chewed the floor... need a wuss smiley...

I agree!! My dad had his first heart attack at 43 and had angio at that time. Unfortunately he passed away at age 53 about a month before his 54th birthday. there were other health issues but the heart attack took him.
