High Blood Pressure

This condition can be acute or chronic. However, in either case, we need to gain control of the numbers temporarily or in the long term to avoid risky complications such as a stroke, heart attack, and heart failure.

Cardiovascular Associates of Staten Island explains that you may have high blood pressure and aren't aware of this condition because you are active and feel great! A consistently high BP is a silent killer that raises your risk for complications. We can help you get your BP under control through a cardiac baseline workup.

While no one's physical makeup is the same, a BP of 120/80, considered normal, is not always typical for everyone and acts as a simple baseline. However, if your BP is over 130/80, we may consider this high. 

Common sense, lifestyle changes, and possible medications can lower your BP. Our doctors review these changes you need to make for your heart health. 

  • Decrease or eliminate alcohol consumption.
  • Quit smoking today; we can help you!
  • Devise a sensible exercise program if it means simply walking daily. 
  • Eat a low-salt, low-fat diet. Increase fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. 
  • Monitor thyroid disorders.
  • Be sure to get enough sleep; if sleep apnea or insomnia is a problem, get help as soon as possible. 
  • Decrease your daily stress level.
  • Lose weight if you are overweight.
  • Take note of your family history of hypertension.
  • The aging process means monitoring your BP more frequently.

Simple common sense goes a long way in helping you reach your goal. Not only will you look and feel better, but you will lower all your risks of complications. We can help you.
