High blood pressure concern 7 years after CABG.

Posted , 2 users are following.

Long story short my partner was rushed in for an emergency triple bypass seven years ago. Since then he's not been great but has had a real job to see cardiologist, etc.

We've recently been monitoring his blood pressure a couple of times a day and I'm a bit concerned with the results.

Trying to get through to the GP is pretty much impossible at the moment but I'm wondering if we should be taking a trip to A&E, again, I know they will be currently swamped.

Just yesterday he told me that the way he has been feeling lately is reminiscent of how he felt in the days leading up to the event 7 years ago.

Reading are below.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

    In looking at some of these readings, to me they are being taken far to close to the previous ones.

    Firstly, is this person sitting quiet atleast 5 minutes prior to taking?

    |Are they sitting comfortable with their feet flat on the floor?

    I would not be taking second measurement for atleast 5 minutes between first and second.

    First readings are always higher due to anxiety.

    You have to remember that the arteries have been squeezed and 1 minute is not allowing time for them to relax.

    Iz this person on any meds?

    I have had way higher readings than that. I am not down playing his results, but maybe there is some anxiety going on and this is causing some of these readings
