Blood pressure under control in two Daan measures in the form of a relationship is written as follows:
“Read 110 by 70 millimeters of mercury” Systolic: the above figures, even if the two measures are the highest figures obtained blood pressure when the heart pumps blood through the body. When the heart pumps blood, we will be heard as the sound of the heart beat and feel like throbbing.
Diastolic: The figures below, which is also the number below the result of the measurement of blood pressure between heart beats or when the heart is at rest. This is a time when the heart fills with blood.
Since the recommendations of the American Heart Association, a healthy blood pressure?
The following table shows the category of blood pressure at the American Heart Association is set.
* Your doctor will evaluate the result of low blood pressure that is not reasonably foreseeable.
The figures, which is important if the numbers at the top (systolic) or bottom number (diastolic)?
In general, he paid more attention to a large number of results of the systolic reading (top number) is addressed. Systolic value received the attention that one of the risks of heart disease occurring in a person’s blood pressure over 50 years is the large artery stiffness gradually increases with age and the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in vessels blood.
How is hypertension diagnosed?
Your doctor will monitor your blood pressure and determine if significant changes. The American Heart Association recommends that measuring blood pressure in adults 20 years on every visit to a health care professional at age or at least once every two years, when the blood pressure below 120 / 80 mmHg.
Blood pressure increases each time the heart beats and down when the heart is resting between two heartbeats.Blood pressure can change from minute to minute, to change the posture changes, movement or stress. Blood pressure is typically less than 120/80 mm Hg (systolic less than 120 and less than 80 diastolic) for adults aged 20 or over.
If the results of the normal value exceeds the measurement of blood doctor before diagnosis of hypertension will repeatability of measurements several times and monitor your blood pressure at home,
Measurement results of hypertension could not find a measurement with high blood pressure. However, if the measurement results is at 140/90 or higher, your doctor may start treatment of hypertension. This can be in the form of changes in lifestyle and consumption of drugs for lowering blood pressure people are made, which have a blood pressure of 140/90 or higher.
If during measurement of the blood pressure of the systolic blood pressure of 180 mmHg or more or a diastolic blood pressure of 110 mmHg or more waiting for a certain time is received, and repeat the test. If the measurement results remain at this speed or even more, go immediately to the nearest room treatment of hypertensive crisis emergencies.
Even if you have normal blood pressure, has yet to consider lifestyle changes to increase blood pressure and maintain their health to avoid.
