Say: blud preh-shur
Check your blood pressure! When you go to the doctor,
a nurse might put a band around part of your arm and pump air into the band, blowing
it up like a balloon. Your arm might feel a little squished, but don't worry - that's
how a nurse checks your blood pressure. This test shows how hard your heart
is pumping to move blood through your body. Blood pressure can be too high or too
low, but yours is probably just right!
