What is obvious? Keeping routine doctor’s appointments with regular blood pressure screens (especially with a  known family history of the condition)and avoiding high-risk lifestyle behaviors like smoking, binge drinking, and overeating can help prevent blood pressure levels from rising.

In addition, having so many variables in conditions, medications, and implanted electronic devices makes it critical for first responders to be made aware of pertinent health information immediately during an emergency to provide proper treatment and care.
