Blood Pressure Chart

Blood Pressure (BP) – is the pressure that blood exerts on the walls of blood vessels in the human body. This excess fluid pressure in the circulatory system of the body is above atmospheric pressure.

Systolic Blood Pressure – is the pressure that develops during contraction of the heart muscle. Partially in its creation involves large arteries such as the aorta, acting as a buffer, so the claim that it’s a heart blood pressure, is not entirely true.

Diastolic Blood Pressure – after cardiac contractions the aortic valve closes and blood can’t flow back into the heart, this moment is filled with oxygen-rich blood to works the following abbreviations, at this stage, the blood passively moves through the vessels.

Dangerous to life, and in terms of the development of negative effects on the body is the systolic pressure, as the numbers diastolic pressure is significantly lower even in the hypertensive crisis.

When your heart beats, it pumps blood round your body to give it the energy and oxygen it needs. As the blood moves, it pushes against the sides of the blood vessels. The strength of this pushing is your blood pressure. If your blood pressure is too high, it puts extra strain on your arteries (and your heart) and this may lead to heart attacks and strokes.

Blood pressure is always given as two numbers:

  • Systolic Pressure (when the heart beats)
  • Diastolic Pressure (when the heart relaxes)

When the measurements are written down, both are written one above, or before, the other with the systolic being the first number.

Remember that tips for lowering or increasing blood pressure are recommendations and do not replace a visit to the doctor.

At severely high or severely low blood pressure you should immediately call an ambulance
