May Measurement Month

May Measurement Month is a worldwide public screening initiative to highlight the need for increased awareness around blood pressure.

Our aim is to measure as many people’s blood pressure as possible and find out just how big the problem is.  We will be then able to demonstrate to governments across the world why they need to raise public awareness and provide us all with better blood pressure screening facilities and treatment.

High blood pressure is a silent killer. It is the No. 1 contributing risk factor for global death causing many cardiovascular complications. But often people don’t even know they have high blood pressure. There are no symptoms and some people only find out they have high blood pressure after they suffer a heart attack or stroke, or are diagnosed with something else, such as heart or kidney disease.

If you are over 18 years of age, you can take part in this activity.  Come to the foyer of Monash Medical Centre in Clayton from Monday, 17 May (World Hypertension Day) to Friday, 21 May to have your blood pressure checked!
