In this week’s Heart Health Minute video, Dr. Chauncey Crandall tells how a major medical study revealed that most doctors make three common — and dangerous — mistakes when taking blood pressure. You’ll discover which arm should be used to take your blood pressure, what is the correct cuff size, and if you should be seated or standing. Without this information you could end up being misdiagnosed with high blood pressure, a diagnosis that carries serious medical consequences. So click the video to watch this simple heart health tip.
