Are Cold Compresses Safe For People With Hypertension?
Hello? Good night,? Sorry, I’ve been bothering but I want to ask if it’s safe / good or not for hypertension sufferers in cold compresses or some kind of frozen gel? Thank you before,
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Compressed cold or warm, either by a towel, frozen gel, flask, or the other, safe to do by people with high blood pressure or hypertension. This is because it has nothing to do with compresses and blood pressure. Blood pressure is not affected by compress temperature, as hot or cold ambient temperature cannot affect blood pressure. So regarding your question, go ahead if you want to do that.
In addition, while it is safe, we think you still need to share your reasons for compressing your body with your doctor during the next control. Because if due to pain, there may be certain inflammatory processes that require further treatment. By being examined in such detail, your doctor can help you get the most appropriate treatment for your convenience. So, hopefully answering your question.
