About blood pressure

Blood pressure is a measure of the force exerted by your heart to circulate blood throughout your body. It is expressed through two numbers.

The first number represents your systolic blood pressure, indicating the pressure in your arteries during the contraction of your heart muscle.

The second number is your diastolic blood pressure, signifying the lowest pressure reached when your heart relaxes between beats. Pulse pressure is calculated by subtracting the diastolic pressure from the systolic pressure. These values collectively provide insights into the health and functioning of your cardiovascular system.

Normal blood pressure

Indeed, maintaining a healthy blood pressure is crucial for overall well-being. The recommended ranges for a healthy blood pressure are typically a top/systolic pressure between 90 and 120, and a bottom/diastolic pressure between 60 and 80. Additionally, it’s advised to keep your pulse pressure below 40. Monitoring blood pressure within these parameters is considered essential for cardiovascular health and reducing the risk of associated complications. Regular check-ups and lifestyle modifications can contribute to maintaining blood pressure within these healthy ranges.

Low blood pressure

Low blood pressure, clinically known as hypotension, is defined as a reading of 90/60 or lower. Hypotension is associated with a distinct set of risks and health concerns.
A blood pressure reading in this range may indicate insufficient oxygen delivery to the brain. Persistent low blood pressure can be attributed to various factors, including heart issues, anaphylaxis, infections such as sepsis, or certain medications. It is important to address and investigate the underlying causes of low blood pressure, as it can lead to symptoms like dizziness, fainting, and in severe cases, inadequate blood flow to vital organs. Seeking medical attention and identifying the root cause are crucial steps in managing and addressing low blood pressure.

High blood pressure

High blood pressure also referred to as hypertension, signifies that your heart is exerting increased effort to pump blood throughout your body. If left unaddressed, high blood pressure can elevate the risk of serious health complications, including heart attacks, strokes, kidney or heart failure, vision problems, and vascular dementia.
While blood pressure naturally fluctuates during the day, consistently high readings may necessitate intervention to bring it under control. Managing high blood pressure often involves a combination of medications and lifestyle adjustments. Regular monitoring of blood pressure is crucial for maintaining overall health.
