Announcement of New Classification of Blood Pressure Levels 2017

Article posted November 15, 2017, regarding the new classification of blood pressure (BP) levels, through American College of Cardiology (ACC) and American Heart Association (AHA) along with their partners- 2017 ACC/AHA/AAPA/ABC/ACPM/AGS/APhA/ASH/ASPC/NMA/PCNA Guideline for the Prevention, Detection, Evaluation and Management of High Blood Pressure in Adults.
The update was from 2013 developed guidelines which decided to discontinue the mentioned. 

Hypertension is the leading risk factor when it comes to cardiovascular diseases, that can lead to death and disability. Factors like genetics, lifestyle, and age are some of the reasons why a person's blood pressure can be considered alarming. With these factors, I am much concerned with the younger generation that for me I get to have the initial statistics. As a nurse and practicing in a College school, one of my implementing assessment for students is to have their blood pressure monitored. From this, I was able to get the numbers and surprisingly identifying some of them with elevated BP. Health teachings, informing the parent's and guardians and completing the 3-5-day BP monitoring before I refer them to the specialist or doctor of their choice. Immediate identification of possible hypertensive patients can help alleviate their numbers. 

Kindly refer below (Table 1) for the categories being implemented in assessing Hypertension in Adults.

The diagnosis of hypertension should be based on an average of ≥2 carefully recorded readings obtained on ≥2 occasions. Out-of-office and self-monitoring of BP measurements are recommended to confirm the diagnosis of hypertension and for titration of BP-lowering medication, in conjunction with clinical interventions and telehealth counseling.

Attract Recruiters to Your LinkedIn Profile Now

If you’re looking for your next job, one of the most powerful tools available to you is LinkedIn: a social network based entirely around people’s professional skills, where your main presence is your CV.
As with all the best tools, it’s possible to use LinkedIn badly and well, and getting good at it takes some time and skill. If you’re trying to get an Executive Recruitment firm interested in your LinkedIn profile, here are some steps you can take right now.

Key Words
Think about the sort of job you want to do: the job title, key skills, and qualifications and reduce this down to three key terms. You could this by looking at current job postings you want to compete for and selecting the most important terms from them. For example, let’s say you’re looking for ‘Senior Accountant’ roles with ‘ACA Qualification’ and experience in ‘Profitability Analysis’.
Make sure you add these terms multiple times to your profile. You have opportunities in the Headline below your name, the Summary section and throughout your work history, skills and education. Loading your profile in this way ensures you appear when recruiters search for those terms and put you on their radar right away.

Sell Yourself Straight Away
So, you’ve stacked the deck to ensure you’re appearing on the first page of results when recruiters search for candidates for the jobs you want. How do you capture their attention and make sure they shortlist your profile?
Your ‘tagline is a great place to start: it’s one of the first things recruiters look at and it’s a chance to get a short, punchy message that imprints on them that you’re worth looking at. Be dynamic, and include at least one of the key search terms you identified above. This reassures them that their search has returned a useful result. “Senior ACA Qualified Accountant, making the numbers add up” is a short, memorable introduction reinforcing one of your important identifiers, for example.

Maximise Your Summary
Your summary is the most important part of your profile: it’s like the covering letter for the rest of the page.  This is where recruiters will decide to contact you or not.
Shamelessly top load it with relevant information: this is no time for false modesty. People are only reading this because they want to know about your qualifications and experience. Use the first person to introduce yourself to the length of your experience, and your professional qualifications.

Go on to list your specialisms and the projects that you’ve used them in. Make sure you’re using your keywords, and recruiters will be beating a path to your door.
