The prevention point has been installed, in the BM supermarket of Ronda Street in Gros in San Sebastian and throughout the day anyone will be able to know their tension for free

Today is celebrated the World Day of Arterial Hypertension. For that reason, the Gipuzkoa School of Nursing (COEGI) has installed a information point and prevention inside the BM supermarket of Ronda Street, 3 in Donostia, where citizens wishing to take their blood pressure free of charge throughout the day. This action has been promoted by the BM Supermarket chain with the aim of preventing hypertension and thereby raising awareness of the importance of taking care of health and bringing healthy eating. The campaign was attended by COEGI President Pilar Lecuona.

 

The information stand is open from 10 to 13.30 hours and from 16 to 20 hours. This is an informative action so that interested people can know their tension and, moreover, if they are in the optimal values of blood pressure. They will also receive nurses ' advice on the prevention measures to be followed in order to maintain optimal tension and prevent serious illnesses.

In Spain it is estimated that 14 million people suffer from high blood pressure but the most alarming thing about this disease is that 14% of these patients do not know it. In fact, the World Health Organization has defined this disease as the silent epidemic, declaring on 17 May as the International Day of Arterial Hypertension.

Of the patients diagnosed, only one in two receives treatment and one in five has their figures controlled. It is important that it be detected as if it is not treated properly and in time, the consequences can be very serious: it is responsible for half of the deaths by stroke or heart disease and the main risk factor for a stroke. In the world more than 9 million people die a year for this cause. Pronunciacion de canciones

How to take the tension at home?
To detect whether or not hypertensive is important to take the tension periodically. The general recommendations – provided that it has not been previously detected that it is hypertension- are made at least once every four years, between 13 and 45 years and, from that age, every two years. Logically, people diagnosed with hypertension should take the strain as often as determined by the doctor or nurse.

In the face of any doubt, from COEGI they recommend consulting with the reference nurse that the patient has in their Health Center and insist that for proper self-meditation of the blood pressure it is necessary to follow the following guidelines:

- Find yourself in a relaxed and in no hurry. Be comfortable and as quiet as possible in a quiet and noisy environment.

- You should take the voltage half an hour after you have ingested some food, smoked or taken some exciting drink or substance (coffee, tea, etc.).

- The position of the body must be seated, with the back supported in the back of the chair.

- The legs must be touching the ground and not crossed.

- The arm and hand should be relaxed, in a resting position and without tightening.

- Place the appliance well: The pressure cuff should be in contact with the skin (removed coat), between 2 and 3 centimeters above the elbow and it is important to adapt to the arm.

- Place the cuff at a distance of about 2 centimeters to the heart.

- Do not speak while taking blood pressure, as it may affect the marked values.

- It is advisable to take the tension between two and three times in a row, separated between one and three minutes and take written registration to show it to the doctor or nurse when necessary.
