May Measurement Month Blood Pressure Infographic

New infographic of key stats helps increase awareness of the serious consequences of untreated high blood pressure.

Around 50% of heart attacks and strokes are preventable if high blood pressure is treated.

In order to help save 62,000 lives a year in the UK, Blood Pressure UK and MyTherapy, available free on GooglePlay and iTunes, have taken the opportunity of May Measurement Month to create an infographic on high blood pressure. Distributed around the UK this infographic brings together the key stats to help increase awareness of the serious consequences of untreated high blood pressure.

We hope that sharing this image will stress the importance of getting blood pressure checked and encourage people to get measured so they know their numbers.
