24 Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

With the use of a small mobile device we can help you find out how your blood pressure is really doing. Our pharmacists will fit you with a unique blood pressure monitor that records your blood pressure over a 24 hour period.  We have several ambulatory blood pressure monitors on hand to enable you and your physician quick access to this diagnostic technology.   Simply have your physician send a referral and we will call you to set up an appointment or if you prefer simply call us directly to book your appointment.  We can generally have you booked in at your earliest convenience and your physician has the results faxed to them the same day the monitor is returned.   Our pharmacists are available to review your results and give you some important information regarding risks of hypertension and lifestyle and medication changes that can help you manage or prevent hypertension.  Please call us today.  You may want to visit the Heart and stroke Foundation website at www.heartandstroke.com for more information.
