High blood pressure summed up
Around 50% of heart attacks and strokes are preventable if high blood pressure is treated.
In order to help save 62 000 lives a year in the UK, Blood Pressure UK and MyTherapy have taken the opportunity of May Measurement Month to create an infographic on high blood pressure. The infographic brings together the key stats and will hopefully increase awareness of the serious consequences of untreated high blood pressure.
We hope that sharing this image will stress the importance of getting your blood pressure checked and encourage people to get measured so they know their numbers.
