(KTVI) – A visit to the doctor’s office means a blood pressure check. According to a report from the British Journal of General Practice, those readings are higher when taken by a doctor.
Registered nurse Vicki Moran is an instructor at St. Louis University’s School Of Nursing. She tells us more about the “White Coat Effect” and if the study will change how blood pressure readings are taken.
