Do you know what your blood pressure is? Our resident doctors demonstrate why you should on this week’s Health feature.
Wow, Handysides you have a very sophisticated, single animated blood pressure cuff.
Yeah, you see I don’t just work with tape measures, this is a very good one. Press that button and you will see my blood pressure will be recorded there. Blood pressure is very important to record, everybody should know what their blood pressure is, there are two numbers that come up, the high number called systolic blood pressure and the low number called diastolic – if either one of them is elevated, you may be in trouble. So everybody should know their blood pressure and go and see their doctor. If it is above 130 it could be a problem and if it is above 90 – it is a problem. So what is my blood pressure?
It is still counting?
Hurry up machine, television viewers can’t wait.
It is 146 over 96.
Man, I will tell you, being on television really scares me, it is usually 120. I am going to go and see my doctor. Thank you.
