Take Blood Pressure in Both Arms

By at February 15, 2012 | 7:52 am | Print

A new study reveals that a systolic blood pressure difference of just 15 mmHg between the right and left arms could be a sign of Cardiovascular (CV) disease. It was found that this difference meant the increased risk of peripheral vascular disease by 2 ½ times and cardiovascular disease by 1.6 times. The recommendation to check both arms does exist as part of the American blood pressure management guideline.
