If you’ve been previously diagnosed with high blood pressure or heart disease, you can receive convenient ongoing care through Rosemary. A doctor will work with you to help manage and address your symptoms.
High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is blood pressure that is higher than normal. Your blood pressure will normally fluctuate throughout the day depending on the activities you're doing. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg.
Sustained high blood pressure without adequate treatment can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
We carry a variety of medications commonly prescribed for blood pressure and heart conditions, including heart failure, arrhythmias and ischaemic heart disease.
In order to receive treatment for blood pressure and heart conditions through Rosemary, you must already have seen a doctor, received a diagnosis and be prescribed your regular treatment by your general practitioner. An online doctor in Australia on our platform can help you access your treatment and is available to chat online about your progress whenever you need.
It's important to continue taking your medication as prescribed even if you are feeling well in order to reduce your risk of experiencing cardiovascular complications and/or events.
Lifestyle management is important for managing these conditions. This means ensuring you’re eating a healthy diet, exercising, not smoking, keeping within a healthy weight range and, if you consume alcohol, that you’re doing it safely.
The aim of treatment is to manage risk factors that reduce the risk of a cardiovascular complication or event. Your doctor and cardiologist will monitor your risk to identify if and when it’s safe to reduce or stop your medications completely.
If you are suffering from chest pain, lightheadedness, dizziness or shortness of breath, call an ambulance on triple zero (000) immediately.
