Blood Pressure Monitors
FOR SALE AND HIRE
What is blood pressure?
Blood pressure is how hard your blood pushes against the walls of your arteries when your heart pumps blood. Arteries are the tubes that carry blood away from your heart. Every time your heart beats, it pumps blood through your arteries to the rest of your body. Blood pressure is important because the higher your blood pressure is, the higher your risk of health problems in the future.
Southside Heath & Hire have a large range of aneroid Sphygmomanometers, stethoscopes (Littman), Omron digital blood pressure monitors for sale and hire and blood pressure accessories. Come and see one of our nurses for a FREE blood pressure check today.
