As a nurse, Claire D’Andrea knows how to screen and treat patients for high blood pressure. But Claire is also one of the 68 million American adults with high blood pressure. Nearly one in three adults in the United States has high blood pressure, also called hypertension by medical professionals. That’s where nurses come in, Himmelfarb says: “We need to empower patients to know their numbers—their blood pressure levels vs. the goals, their athersclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk —and offer strategies for self-managing high blood pressure.”.

On this, the clock is still ticking. Doctors, nurses and others in health care systems should identify and treat high blood pressure at every visit. *Blood pressure control means having a systolic blood pressure less than 140 mmHg and a diastolic blood pressure less than 90 mmHg, among people with high blood pressure. Multidisciplinary hypertension clinics run by specialist nurses empower patients to measure and monitor their own BP at home and introduce lifestyle changes which together have been shown to lead to better BP control. “Nurses contribute a great deal towards lowering BP and thereby reducing incidence of stroke and heart attack in UK.”. I was recovering from surgery in the ICU,” she said.

Doctors had placed two stents to restore blood flow in her heart. Roslyn tried to understand why she had a heart attack at 58. Although she was 15 pounds overweight, she didn’t have high blood pressure or high cholesterol and didn’t smoke. She looked more closely at her family’s health history. Normal blood pressure is when blood pressure is lower than 120/80 mmHg most of the time.

A patient is diagnosed with hypertension, the medical term for high blood pressure, when their blood pressure is 140/90 mmHg most of the time. There are several levels of hypertension: Normal Blood Pressure: Lower than 120/ 80; Prehypertension: 120-139/80-89. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a defined as a top reading of at least 130 or a bottom one of 80. The condition affects nearly a third of American adults, the.

Learning about blood pressure has always been part of every nurse‘s life. Back in nursing school, we learned how to take someone’s blood pressure manually by finding someone who is willing to sit down be practiced on. And just to make sure we get an accurate reading, we compare with others.

Bottomline, it’s a fun learning experience. Nurse Protocols for Registered Professional Nurses 2015 Hypertension 14.6 2. Consult with Delegating Physician or his/her designee if patient presents with systolic blood pressure equal to or greater than 200 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure is equal to or greater than 110 mmHg. 3. Call 911 if patient presents with complaints of chest pai. Hypertensive Urgency.

If your blood pressure is 180/120 or greater, wait about five minutes and try again. If the second reading is just as high and you are not experiencing any other associated symptoms of target organ damage such as chest pain, shortness of breath, back pain, numbness/weakness, change in vision, or difficulty speaking, this would be considered a hypertensive urgency.

On the other hand, if a new nurse who was asked to take and record the observations of a patient with congestive heart failure failed to report that the patient’s blood pressure had dropped from 120/80 to 85/40 mmHg, this nurse would be accountable for the error.

  • Hi My name is David Gms and I am jn India and I’m interested in the nursing sector.Will I be able to come, learn then get employed as a first responder or a nurse in the States.

  • I appreciate this video and excited about your channel! I worked as a medical assistant 18 years ago, but put all that on hold to raise kids. I am ready to jump back in but need some brushing up on a few things. I know you have an updated video on how to take bp, but this one was a little more “dumbed down” and helped more. Thank you

  • I am a Medical Assistant student. I am glad to know that I am not the only one who is having a hard time listening to the BP sound. Thank you for your video, it is a great help for me.

  • Thanks for facilitating us.Infact,a nice BP gadget was put aside in our Farm house/village for years, considering its use a very technical subject.
    Today I came across to watch your videos.You have an amazing ability to impart your practical knowledge so explicitly and clearly: credit goes to you.Lot of prayers from Pakistan

  • Excellent explanation of the procedure, and from an absolutely gorgeous young lady! The subtitles though, lol, made me spew water out of my mouth!����

  • Thanks for that helpful instructions of you. Im from Philippines and i am so happy bcoz it helps me a lot. God bless and thank you for sharing us this video.��

  • SO grateful for this video, Nurse Sarah! I’m teaching vital signs to my nursing and allied health students via distance learning (video classroom) and it’s SO challenging to teach without the hands on aspect. This is so helpful!

  • I’m currently in an EMT course and I have always been iffy on taking a blood pressure. We’re 3 months in and I’m still not so confident, I get to embarrassed when we have to go through a station where taking a blood pressure is required because I just can’t properly hear the beat. I have my 2nd clinical tomorrow and I’m hoping that I feel more confident after this video.

  • your teaching technique was so great more videos to upload pls maam nurse beautiful specially on first aid…i will save this video as my always reference on taking my blood pressure…many thanks and more power godbless.

  • im just trying to do this at home and i hate bp measurements. give me needles any day but take my bp and i wanna pass out. now im trying to learn to take it myself and even watching this video is making me lightheaded.

  • Thank you so much for this wonderful informative video specially in this covid19 pandemic time.
    May ALLAH bless you for spreading this good knowledge

  • Excellent video. I am getting a manual BP apparatus to take my own pressure as the home digital ones are not very accurate for me. Thank you.��

  • Great video, needed to learn how to take blood pressure because wife has high blood pressure and our automatic monitor has been way off.

  • Can you make a video specifically on how to turn the knob? I need little memory tricks. Such as closed towards me, open/ towards patient. But more detailed instructions on how to hold it and what not bc I am still so awkward with it. THANK YOU! This will help me get through nursing school!

  • I just bought a automatic blood pressure moniter and when I used it, the err reading came up. I will buy a manual blood pressure kit. You really helped me a lot, with the instructions. Thank you very much.

  • Make sure you always ask your patient which arm to use, but not Ben. I’m gonna use his left arm because he’s my husband and because I said so. ��

  • Thanks so much for the video the information provided is most helpful. I find myself at times consumed with this problem the direction provided is greatly appreciated.

  • I’ve known how to take blood pressure manually since I was 9 due to being born with Chronic Kidney Disease back in the 70’s. Back then there were no digital BP machines. I have an automatic one now only because the rubber is expensive to replace on the sphygmomanometer. My Stethoscope is still in great shape though.:) I take my parents’ blood pressure for them. My mom complains if I pump hers to 200 though. For my own arm I can only do my right arm and I am right handed so putting on the cuff is a little difficult. My left arm has an AV access since I am on dialysis. My BP is perfect when I have a transplant but without kidneys my BP is (of course) high. However, since I have developed sleep apnea I have noticed that my Diastolic runs low now no matter how high my Systolic is. When I was first diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure my BP was 230/180 (obviously that is CRAZY high) but now while on dialysis it runs typically 150/70 which I found odd. Before sleep apnea but without kidneys it would run 150/100 which of course is high but expected.

  • I had high blood pressure and procured medication to maintain it for 2 years, nevertheless I began utilizing this blood pressure plan that I uncovered on the internet last month. Medical professional told me blood pressure level is returned to normalcy and I don`t really have to put income into prescription for hypertension level.. Do you often use Google? Yes, use it to know more about this guide. Name of this guidebook is Jason Cυnobroke
    Best luck

  • Hi Nurse Jenny, I don’t exactly understandyou said you bump the bulb up until you can’t hear the pulse anymore and that is the expected systolic. But then you also said that when you hear the pulse start again THAT is the expected systolic. Could you explain this? Thank you!

  • After watching ur video,i must say that many people while checking bp r not measuring correctly cause they don’t consider many steps which u have shown

  • Horrible video, the captions are overshadowing vital portions you need to show.
    The dial should be shown.
    It’s a video for others not for yourself and the volunteer you are testing.

  • Thank you so much, i am a teen and this video has been beneficial for measurement of my dad’s blood pressure, also checked mine came out to 106/70.

  • Oh wow. You two are so cute. Your husband is handsome. He’s a great patient.
    I know, that it’s very hard to teach and explain it! Once one of my students said, he couldn’t hear anything. I borrowed my expensive stethoscope to the student. And he still couldn’t hear anything.
    So. We listened together. He with my expensive stethoscope and I with his cheaper one. And I could hear it properly. And he couldn’t still hear anything.
    I checked his stethoscope and it was alright.
    I asked him “tell me. you don’t hear anything. WHAT do you hear then?!” He said “I can only here something like a whoosh, that comes and goes. But there’s no beep sound at all!”

    Sometimes, your students watch too much tv.
    And sometimes, you need to be much better in explaining, WHAT to EXPECT, noise wise.
    It was a funny situation.

  • Thanks for the tips �� The best part was your cute pronunciation of the word “sphygmomanometer”, that was on a jeopardy level in my book, but you didn’t flinched an inch ����

  • Great video Nurse Jenny i take metropolol 2 times a day when should i take my bp am or pm and how many times do i have to take my bp i have mvp sinus arrythmia and palpitations i aldo have a sphygmomanometer

  • I am impressed �������� let me check on other vids.

    I hope tge vids are classifed in certain “playlist” so I can follow through ������
