24 Hour Blood Pressure Monitor

Posted by on Jan 18, 2016 in News | Comments Off on 24 Hour Blood Pressure Monitor

24 Hour Blood Pressure monitoring is now available.  The device can be fitted on a Wednesday morning and taken off the following morning.  It is is worn continuously during this time – please note you must not let any water near it so we ask you not to shower during this period of time.  This is a small inconvenience for a very useful test.  The cost is 80 Euro for a private patient and 60 for Medical Card patients – these prices compare very favourably with local private hospitals.

When you return to have it removed – our nurse Elaine will go through the readings fully with you.  If it is found your Blood Pressure requires attention our GPs will check these readings – and if necessary you will have a brief GP consultation (30 Euro) to lifestyle changes and if there is a need for medication.

Please phone 7979080 on a Wednesday or Thursday between 12.30pm and 1pm to speak to Elaine.
