How to Measure Your Accurate Blood Pressure at Home?

With the prevalence of hypertension and its potential health risks, monitoring blood pressure at home has become an integral aspect of proactive healthcare. This article guides individuals on the importance of home blood pressure monitoring and outlines the steps to ensure accurate readings for effective management.

Fever and normal body temperature

The conventional understanding that the average human body temperature is 98.6°F is outdated, with newer research suggesting a broader normal range of 97°F to 99°F. Body temperature fluctuates throughout the day, typically lower in the morning and peaking in the late afternoon or evening. While regular temperature checks aren't necessary for healthy individuals, they are recommended when feeling unwell or suspecting exposure to illnesses like COVID-19, as fever is a common symptom. The historical basis of 98.6°F stems from Dr. Carl Wunderlich's 19th-century study, but recent investigations indicate a gradual decrease in average body temperatures to around 97.5°F. Factors contributing to this decline include lower metabolic rates due to increased body weight, reduced rates of infection compared to the 19th century, and advancements in thermometer accuracy.

Coronavirus: What Happens When You Get Infected?

Coronavirus: What Happens When You Get Infected? The coronavirus infects the body by attaching its spiky surface proteins to healthy cells, particularly those in the lungs, via ACE2 receptors. Once inside, it replicates and commandeers the cells, ultimately causing cell death. While the Omicron variant seems to affect lung tissue less than previous variants, it can still lead to severe complications. COVID-19 begins with exposure to droplets from an infected person, which can enter through the eyes, nose, or mouth. Symptoms typically appear within 2 to 14 days and may include fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, and gastrointestinal issues like nausea or diarrhea.
