Spotlight on Service
24-Hour Blood Pressure Monitoring
Did you know that we offer an ambulatory blood pressure monitor (ABPM) rental service? An ABPM consists of a BP cuff and a portable monitor that you wear for 24 hours. It gives your physician a complete picture of how your BP changes during your regular activities and at different times of the day. If you are affected by “white coat syndrome” (when BP measurements are elevated in the physician's office), ABPM can provide more accurate results. Call (250) 338-4790 to schedule an appointment.
