What is Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome?

Mitral valve prolapse is a heart condition in which one of the heart’s valves, the one separating the left side’s upper and lower chambers, does not close properly. This can, but does not always, cause mitral regurgitation, a scenario in which blood flows backward because the valve isn’t closing fully when the heart contracts.

Meet Pat Gibbs: heart attack survivor, activist, aspiring photographer, Lauren’s Hope customer, and all-around inspiring lady. This 63-year-old “Raging Granny” enjoys, “…singing at festivals and picket lines about environmental and social justice issues on my days off,” explains Pat. “When I am fully retired, I hope to be able to attend every Raging Granny gig. On the west coast of Canada here, that is almost a lifestyle choice for many retirees who are also activists. I also love to attend the film evenings put on by our local Cinema Politica group where activists meet to share and learn.”


Why Everyone With Hypertension Needs A Medical Alert Bracelet

Top Risk Factors For Hypertension

For people with hypertension, or high blood pressure, medical alert bracelets are an extra layer of protection against serious complications from a cardiac event. If your blood pressure is high most of the time (that is, not just when you’re nervous at the doctor or have been drinking excessive amounts of caffeine, but high in resting and moderately active states), your doctor will likely run additional tests, measure your blood pressure at various points in the day, and diagnose you with high blood pressure. This means your blood pressure is usually 140/90 or above. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 or below (it can be too low, however, which is also potentially problematic).
