High Blood Pressure

Watch, Learn, and Live

Blood pressure measures the force of blood pushing outwards on your arterial walls. It's written as two numbers, such as 112/78 mm Hg. High Blood Pressure means the pressure in your arteries is elevated. The top, systolic, number is the pressure when the heart beats. The bottom, diastolic, number is the pressure when the heart rests between beats. Optimal blood pressure is less than 120 mm Hg systolic and 80 mm Hg
