Blood Pressure Testing
Blood Pressure Testing in Edison & South Plainfield, NJ
Blood pressure screenings are quick simple tests that measure the force of blood pushing against artery walls when your heart is beating.
Blood pressure is measured in two readings: systolic pressure, which measures the pressure of the blood when the heart contracts, and diastolic pressure, which measures the pressure between heartbeats.
As a standard part of any medical visit, the physicians at AFC Urgent Care South Plainfield will check your blood pressure anytime you visit our urgent care center. Having your blood pressure reviewed will ensure that you are not at risk for any heart-health complications during your visit.
