Park County has a new health resource available in our community. Self-measured blood
pressure monitoring (SMBP) kits are now available for checkout at all three Park County Libraries!
The kits are available in both English and Spanish and include the following:
- a clinically validated, automated, home blood pressure cuff
- blood pressure logbooks
- educational materials from the American Heart Association including “How to Measure Your Blood Pressure at Home” infographics, information on what blood pressure is, and ideas for healthy lifestyle changes
- a resource directory to local community-based organizations and referral resources to the Healthy U chronic disease self-management program along with the Healthy Heart Ambassador Program at the Cody Senior Center
The loan period for each Blood Pressure cuff kit is 30 days, and it can be automatically renewed, up to two times, if there are no holds on the item.
We are very proud to be able to offer this resource which has been made available by collaboration between the Park County Public Library System, University of Wyoming Center on Aging, and the Wyoming Department of Health- Chronic Disease Prevention Program.
