Monitoring Your Blood Pressure

Dr. Paula Montana de la Cadena, Cardiovascular Specialist with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, says any patient above 20 years of age should have a regular checkup of their blood pressure, at least once a year if it is normal, and it should be more often if it is above 140/90. She also explains a 30-year patient should not have a blood pressure of 135/85; an ideal blood pressure for them should be around the 120/80.
