Preamble: many of these issues are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then the larger issues often take care of themselves and you can focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice and more family time.
“Blood Pressure - Stroke Guideline for Referral”
“To err on the side of caution saves lives” Mark Studin 2017
Based upon direct feedback from Candice Perkins MD, Neurologist, Vascular Neurologist there is a finite cut off for urgent care and immediate transport to the emergency room for blood pressure.
That number is a hard 190/100.
Is this chiropractic… YES… because you cannot separate the 2 words, doctor and chiropractic. Therefore, you must be responsible and not have your patient die or have a stroke because you wanted to adjust them first. In addition, if they are dead, I don’t think atlas left will matter!!!!!
This is why you take patient’s blood pressure during ALL evaluations and if they look hypertensive on any visit. For those who ignore this HARD GUIDELINE, all I can say is that I can’t fix stupid! I also know that I am not making friends with those who disagree and I just insulted (you know how much sleep I am going to lose over hurting those feelings), but I am simply trying to save lives.
Since we released the stroke course, there have been many lives already saved in chiropractic offices because these doctors now understand at a higher level.
