TOP TEN COUNTDOWN TO FAMILY DAY & HEALTH FAIR - NUMBER ONE

Sunday, 19 November, 2017

We are getting so excited about our upcoming Family Day & Health Fair on Saturday, October 11th from 11:30am until 2pm! So much so that we decided to put together a Top Ten Countdown to get all of you jazzed too! Mark your calendars and come out to enjoy the many fun activities we are putting together for you!

NUMBER ONE: Get your FREE Health Screening! Generations Family Practice will be offering FREE Vitals Checks and Diabetes Screenings. It is very important to know your vital signs, which include temperature, blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rate. Many people have high blood pressure and do not know it. The only way to know if it is high is by having it checked. For others the pulse rate may be abnormally fast or slow or irregular. Often times there may be no symptoms but it may indicate a heart problem. Part of a physical exam includes checking your vital signs. That is one reason why it is so important to be checked out by your medical provider.

What is normal?

  • The normal pulse for healthy adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. The pulse rate may fluctuate and increase with exercise, illness, injury, and emotions. Females ages 12 and older, in general, tend to have faster heart rates than do males. Athletes, such as runners, who do a lot of cardiovascular conditioning, may have heart rates near 40 beats per minute and experience no problems.
  • Normal body temperature can range from 97.8 degrees F (or Fahrenheit, equivalent to 36.5 degrees C, or Celsius) to 99 degrees F (37.2 degrees C) for a healthy adult.
  • Normal respiration rates for an adult person at rest range from 12 to 16 breaths per minute.
  • Normal blood pressure: A normal systolic blood pressure is below 120. A systolic blood pressure of 120 to 139 means you have prehypertension, or borderline high blood pressure. Even people with prehypertension are at a higher risk of developing heart disease. A systolic blood pressure number of 140 or higher is considered to be hypertension, or high blood pressure. The diastolic blood pressure number or the bottom number indicates the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. A normal diastolic blood pressure number is less than 80. A diastolic blood pressure between 80 and 89 indicates prehypertension. A diastolic blood pressure number of 90 or higher is considered to be hypertension or high blood pressure.
