Free blood pressure checks in Taghmon

By Esther Hayden

There will be a free blood pressure check in Wexford on Wednesday, September 30.

The checks will take place between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Taghmon Family Resource Centre, St Joseph Street and are part of a national Blood Pressure Roadshow which is supported by Medtronic.

Often silent and symptomless, the Irish Heart Foundation (IHF) has warned that half a million adults in Ireland don't know they have high blood pressure and run the risk of a life threatening event such as heart attack or stroke unless they get it checked.

The good news is that a simple five-minute check is all it takes to detect high blood pressure which can then be effectively managed.'
