Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) Screening

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, affects one in five Canadians and is often called the silent killer because you may not know it is there. The Powassan & Area Family Health Team has developed a hypertension screening based on best practice guidelines to annually screen patients so that we can identify whether or not you have high blood pressure.
