High blood pressure

La Paloma Hospital

High blood pressure

Blood pressure is the force that blood exerts on the artery walls as the heart pumps blood to the rest of the body. Therefore, pressure increases with heartbeat and decreases when the heart relaxes.

Keeping your blood pressure at a healthy level is important in order to reduce the chances of suffering cardiovascular problems. For this reason, at La Paloma Hospital we offer you a Specialised Consultation Service for High Blood Pressure, which includes a doctor’s visit and certain medical tests: triglycerides in lipid profile, X-ray, blood pressure monitoring, cholesterol analysis and treatment plan.
