Firstly, we need to understand what is BP, it is not a disease exactly, it is the pressure of blood on the walls of the blood vessels. It is also the arterial pressure in the systemic circulation. BP is usually measured in the following terms systolic and diastolic pressure which is measured in millimeter of mercury (mmHg).
Lets read more about blood pressure.
Do you know, it is one of the vital signs along with the respiratory rate, body tem, oxygen saturation and heart rate?
Normal BP = 120/80 mmHg
When the BP is high then it is known as Hypertension and when it is low it is known as Hypotension.
Both hypertension and Hypotension are life threats; if the BP is constantly high then one is more prone to heart disease, stroke and kidney failure.
