01. What Is Blood
Blood pressure is the force or pressure in which circulating blood pushes
against the wall of arteries and pumps from the heart to other parts of the
body. Blood pressure delivers oxygen and nutrients through arteries to the
organs and tissues.
Types of Blood Pressure
(1). Low Blood Pressure: When blood pressure is low enough that the flow of
blood (along with oxygen and nutrients) to the different parts of the body is
insufficient, it is called low blood pressure.
(2). High Blood Pressure: When blood pressure is high enough that the
flow of blood (along with oxygen and nutrients) to the different parts of the
body is more than sufficient, it is called high blood pressure.
Systolic and Diastolic of Blood Pressure
(1). Systolic Pressure
Systolic pressure is the highest blood pressure that occurs when heart
(2). Diastolic Pressure
Diastolic pressure is the lowest blood pressure that occurs when heart
relaxes between two beats.
Blood pressure is measured in ‘millimeters of mercury’ (mmHg).
Blood pressure is shown in two numbers with one number on the top of the other.
Example: Blood pressure reading of 119/79mmHg will be expressed as “119 over
79 millimeters of mercury” or simply ‘119 over 79’.
The upper or first number in a blood pressure reading is the systolic pressure.
Thus, in above example ‘119’ is the systolic pressure.
The lower or second number in a blood pressure reading is the diastolic
Thus, in above example ‘79’ is the diastolic pressure.
Different Stages of Blood Pressure
PRESSURE IN ADULT
BLOOD PRESSURE --
Low blood pressure (50/33 or lower) --
pressure 50 mmHg or lower
pressure 33 mmHg or lower
Low blood pressure (51/34 to 60/40) --
pressure between 51 to 60 mmHg
pressure between 34 to 40 mmHg
blood pressure (61/41 to 90/60) --
pressure between 61 to 90 mmHg
pressure between 41 to 60 mmHg
blood pressure (91/61 to 119/89) --
pressure between 91 to 119 mmHg
pressure between 61 to 89 mmHg
BLOOD PRESSURE (120/80) --
pressure at 120 mmHg
pressure at 80 mmHg
BLOOD PRESSURE --
(121/81 to 139/89) --
pressure between 121 to 139 mmHg Or
pressure between 81 and 89 mmHg
1 hypertension (140/90 to 159/99) --
pressure between 140 to 159 mmHg or
pressure between 90 and 99 mmHg
2 hypertension (160/100 to 179/109) --
pressure between 160 to 179 mmHg or
pressure between 100 and 109 mmHg
Crisis (180/110 or higher) –
pressure 180 mmHg or higher
pressure 110 mmHg or higher
PRESSURE IN CHILDREN
to 12 months) -- 75/50 to 100/70
to 5 years) -- 80/50 to 110/80
to 12 years) -- 85/50 to 120/80
to 18 years) -- 95/60 to 140/90
Blood pressure keeps on changing from moment to moment. If you have high reading
consistently everyday at particular point of time over a number of weeks then
you are really suffering from High Blood Pressure.
