High Blood Pressure Chart By Age

Blood pressure refers to the energy used by the flow of blood to the vessels. The blood pressure always gives two numbers, the systolic pressure when the heart beats and diastolic pressure when the heart is at rest. When the size is written, both are written one above or before others that the systolic anterior. The normal blood pressure is below 120/80. The high blood pressure is 140/90 or higher and if the numbers are the same. The very low blood pressure is called hypotension. The similarity in pronunciation with hypertension can cause confusion. The signs of high blood pressure are headaches, dizziness, the pound in the ears and nose bleeding. These symptoms are usually not seen until high blood pressure reaches high and when there are most likely threats to life. For most people experiencing hypertension, there is no reason why their blood pressure is high. This condition is called essential hypertension and requires extreme restraint. The doctor uses a stethoscope and manual sphygmomanometer to measure blood pressure. The usual way of reading is above the elbow. The sphygmomanometer has a bladder, cuff, bulb and a measure. When the bulb is pumped it inflates the bladder inside the cuff, wrapped around the arm. This inflation will stop the flow of blood in the arteries. The stethoscope is used to listen to the sound of the heartbeat. As pressure is released from the bladder, with audible sounds of blood flowing again. The point becomes the systolic reading. The diastolic reading is when hear no sound again which means that the blood flow returned to normal.
