Blood pressure is a very important contributor to heart attacks and strokes. It is the #1 risk factor for atrial fibrillation, a condition that can cause stroke. OHIP does not fund ABPM, so we led the charge in bringing the cost to the lowest available in the province to help people be able to afford this valuable test.
Anyone can book this test for themselves to see if the medications they are taking are effective enough or not. This monitor takes your blood pressure twice an hour during the day time and hourly at night. It can also help sorting out the best times you should take your medication.
