Caption: Blood pressure measurement. Doctor taking the blood pressure of a 93 year old male patient who has previously suffered a transient ischaemic attack (TIA, or 'mini stroke'). The cuff is connected to a gauge that displays the pressure (not seen). The stethoscope allows the doctor to listen to the patient's pulse. Blood pressure is an important measure of health. High blood pressure (hypertension) puts a great deal of strain on the heart, and is one of the major risk factors in heart attacks and strokes. Photographed at the Western General Hospital stroke unit, Edinburgh, UK.
