24 Hour Blood Pressure Monitor Rental:
Many people suffer from what is known as “White Coat Syndrome” when getting their BP checked by a GP or pharmacist. This is because you may be anxious about getting your BP checked and this can give a “false” elevated reading. A 24-hour test may be recommended as it can help to give a clear picture of how your blood pressure changes over the course of a day. Your blood pressure is tested automatically around every 30 minutes over a 24-hour period using a cuff attached to a portable device worn on your waist. A McCabes Pharmacist will fit the monitor in-store and will remove it the next day.
You will be provided with a detailed report based on the readings the monitor has taken over the previous 24 hours and this report can then be taken to your GP. Cost is €60
