Episode 11: Under pressure, a simple measure to save lives

The blood coursing through your body carries so much information that can tell a story about your health. Today, we are talking about blood pressure. Have you ever wondered how fast your blood flows and how much pressure it is putting on your heart and arteries? We will be covering what we measured when we look at blood pressure, how people develop high blood pressure and the problems that can lead to and how local researchers are looking for solutions to improve blood pressure measurement. 

We are lucky to have Dr Dean Picone joining us in studio and have feature interviews with Prof. James Sharman and Matthew Armstrong.
