Hypertension Toolkit for Health Care Providers
Most of the time there are no symptoms, but untreated, high blood pressure damages arteries and vital organs throughout the body. That's why it is often called the "silent killer."
Monitoring blood pressure at home in addition to regular monitoring in a healthcare provider's office can help control blood pressure. To help you and your patients manage high blood pressure, the American Heart Association has provided a Hypertension Toolkit.
The toolkit includes:
- A copy of Physician Quick Guide that you can keep in your office
- A package of 25 patient guides on high blood pressure and home monitoring
- A notepad on Heart360, the American Heart Association’s premier online tracking tool
