White Coat Syndrome, Elevated Blood Pressure or Hypertension at a Doctor’s Visit Can Affect Your Health

Hypnosis is an effective modality to reduce white coat syndrome. The power of hypnosis helps the mind to see the doctor’s office in a new way, helping blood pressure to reduce.

If you check your blood pressure regularly or have a nurse or doctor take your blood pressure you know how worrying it can be.  Because doctors and nurses base decisions on the data they are presented with, they can make incorrect assessments and prescribe an incorrect course of treatment because of high blood pressure, even if you tell the doctor or nurse you have white coat syndrome.

White Coat Syndrome is more common than you might think – for some patients, their numbers go up the minute they walk through the door.

Regular wellness checks are routinely encouraged, but for some people that act of going to the doctor triggers a response, making their blood pressure soar. Doctors recognize White Coat Syndrome as a very real condition.

“White coat hypertension has been defined as the person who comes into the physician’s office and the blood pressure is elevated, but when they go back home or outside the physician’s office it’s within the normal range,” says Dr. Gary Goforth, family practitioner with Lee Memorial Health System.

What is White Coat Syndrome?

The definition of White Coat Syndrome is: a condition where the person exhibits elevated blood pressure when in a clinical situation.  The mere fact of talking to a nurse or doctor can cause blood pressure to rise as measured by a sphygmomanometer or blood pressure measurement tool.
