24 Hour Blood Pressure Monitoring

A 24-hour blood pressure test may be recommended as it can help to give a clear picture of how your blood pressure changes over the course of a day. Your blood pressure is tested automatically around every 30 minutes over a 24-hour period using a cuff attached to a portable device worn on your waist. A McGreals Pharmacist will fit the monitor in-store and will remove it the next day.

You will be provided with a detailed report based on the readings the monitor has taken over the previous 24 hours and this report can then be taken to your GP.

You may benefit from our 24 hour blood pressure monitoring service if you:

  • Have been diagnosed with borderline high blood pressure
  • Take medicines to reduce your blood pressure
  • Experience blood pressure that’s hard to control
  • Already live with conditions such as diabetes or high cholesterol, which affect your heart
  • Want to check for Atrial defibrillation ( irregular heartbeat)

How long will the consultation take?

Both the fitting and consultation will take 10 to 15 minutes

How much does it cost?

The service costs €60
