What should patients with high blood pressure pay attention to when they take a shower?

It is improper for patients to take a warm shower immediately after a meal.
For patients with high blood pressure, a large amount of blood flows to the digestive system after meals. Taking a shower at this time will dilate the blood vessels under the skin and increase the blood flow, which will lead to reducing blood supply to the brain and the heart, causing heart and cerebrovascular accidents.

It is improper to take a shower after alcohol consumption or overfatigue.

The temperature of the water should not be too hot.
Hot water will dilate the blood vessels under the skin, thus resulting in elevated blood pressure and cardiovascular accidents easily.

The bathing time should not be too long.
For patients with high blood pressure, a long-time shower will lead to significantly decreased oxygen content and significantly elevated content of carbon dioxide in the shower room, which may induce angina in patients easily.

Patients with high blood pressure should not take shower quickly or violently.
A violent forward movement or an abrupt squat will cause cardiovascular accidents easily.

Elderly patients with high blood pressure should be accompanied when they take a shower.

It is improper for patients with high blood pressure to take a warm shower in the public bathhouse
Because the bathing water in bathhouses is usually relatively high and the place is poorly ventilated, which may make patients with high blood pressure feel stifled, hot and cause shortness of breath, leading to elevated blood pressure.
