Self-Monitoring Blood Pressure Program (SMBP)

Do you have high blood pressure or worried about having high blood pressure? The Las Animas-Huerfano Counties District Health Department has a self-measured blood pressure monitoring program. Through this program, the Health Department will loan a blood pressure monitor to anyone in need of keeping track of their blood pressure:

  • To determine if you have high blood pressure

Or due to:

  • Being recently diagnosed with high blood pressure
  • A change in blood pressure medication
  • Having problems controlling blood pressure

Monitors are usually loaned anywhere from two weeks to one month. Our public health nurse will provide you with a monitor and instructions on the correct technique for checking your blood pressure, as well as a log sheet to record blood pressure readings.

For more information, call our office or stop in to get your blood pressure checked free of charge.
