A 47-year-old female with hypertension controlled with two medications presents to your office. Her blood pressure at the visit is 180/90 but she states that she didn’t take her medications that morning because she thought you would want to see what her blood pressure is without medications. She is anxious about her high blood pressure and wants you to do something about it. You instruct her to take her medications and see her back the following week, at which time her blood pressure is 155/95. You raise the dosages of her medications, but she suffers side effects of extreme fatigue and refuses further medications changes, demanding that you make her better. You ask her to use her home blood pressure monitor to check her blood pressure twice a day for one week and report the results, expecting that the home readings will be closer to normal. However, most of her readings are high and this causes her even more anxiety. Now she says that just checking her blood pressure makes her so anxious that she’s sure the anxiety itself is raising her blood pressure. You recommend a CardiacSense Medical Watch. Using the watch, she can spot check her blood pressure several times a day easily, painlessly, and without a large cuff. Her average readings are indeed normal, and she is relieved.
