Heart Healthy

February is American Heart Month. According to the CDC, "Uncontrolled high blood pressure is a leading cause of heart disease and stroke. In fact, more than 67 million Americans have high blood pressure. People with high blood pressure are 4 times more likely to die from a stroke and 3 times more likely to die from heart disease, compared to those with normal blood pressure.
High blood pressure often shows no signs or symptoms, which is why having your blood pressure checked regularly is important."
Well, at theEMSstore we've got a few items that will help make sure you can properly monitor your blood pressure so that won't be a problem for you.
