White Coat Syndrome
The Ultimate Solution To the “White Coat Syndrome”
Many people dread the dentist. Have you ever been nervous in a medical setting? Could it be because of the doctors? Could it be because of the white coats?
The term “white coat syndrome” is coined from the increase in the blood pressure of patients as a result of the medical setting. The human blood pressure is not fixed. It fluctuates. The average human pressure rises and falls in response to what is happening in the environment. The “white coat syndrome” comes into play when you are nervous about your blood pressure being tested by a nurse or a doctor. This is often a huge problem to the doctor as it impedes accurate measurement. The blood pressure of a patient can increase by 30mmHg when anxious.
Several measures have been discovered in the past decade to combat this syndrome. First is the measuring of your blood pressure at home. This help in boycotting this “white coat syndrome”. The other method is the 24-hour monitoring of the blood pressure. This kind of blood monitoring routine shows in clear detail, how your blood pressure varies throughout the day. The 24-hour monitoring of the blood pressure can be done by wearing a small digital monitor which records the blood pressure automatically over 24 hours.
Despite the improvement that these methods have had in the alleviation of this syndrome, they can be stressful to carry out. This is true especially for entrepreneurs, employees and even students. No one wants to walk around with a digital blood pressure recorder around their wrists. Of course, you definitely do not want to show up at the dinner only to take an excuse to measure your blood pressure. Furthermore, they do not offer a lasting solution to the “White Coat Syndrome”.
