Know Your Blood Pressure (BP)

How is BP measured?

Before having it taken:

  • Sit quitely for at least 5 minutes in a chair, with feet on the floor and arm supported at heart level;
  • Make sure the temperature of the room is just right;
  • Do not cross your legs or talk before and during the procedure.

How to read it?

          90                                          systolic pressure
BP = ____                           BP = __________________
          60                                          diastolic pressure

read as "90 0ver 60"

Systolic pressure (highest pressure measurement)
It is caused by blood as it travels in the vessels while the heart is contracting.

Diasttolic pressure (lowest pressure measurement)
Itiscaused by blood as it travels in the vessels while the heart is relaxing between beats.

Even if we haven't discuss about blood pressure, with the information on this blog, we can know how to read blood pressure and what is it and we can know also what is diastolic and systolic pressure. You can know only about all of these if you just read it not looking only and not just waiting for the teacher to discuss about it. said...
