Methods of stabilizing mental status for patients with high blood pressure

What should patients with high blood pressure pay attention to when they urinate or defecate?

It is not uncommon that elderly people with high blood pressure experience accidents when they use the restroom. In order to avoid such accidents in the toilet, they must pay attention to defecating at a regular time to prevent constipation, not using too much strength when they defecate and not spending too much time defecating. Besides, security in the toilet must be guaranteed, such as: the room should be bright, the ground should be non-slip and junks should be kept in order. Besides, patients’ postures when they defecate should be corrected, and they should not lower their head and bow down too long. After they finish defecating, they should rise up slowly and hold on to things around them so as to keep themselves from falling. When a male patient is standing while urinating, he should hold on to the wall with his one hand. If a male patient has difficulty in urinating, he should not use too much strength, instead, he can urinate after a warm water bath, which will make urination relatively smooth. In addition, patients should not lock the door from the inside so that people outside can enter the room when accidents occur.
