Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of arteries. It is measured with two numbers, systolic and diastolic, and recorded as systolic over diastolic. Systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure exerted on the arteries when the heart contracts, while diastolic is the minimum pressure when the heart is at rest between beats.
A sphygmomanometer is a medical device used to measure blood pressure. It consists of an inflatable cuff that is wrapped around the upper arm, a bulb to inflate the cuff, and a gauge to measure the pressure. A healthy blood pressure reading is typically around 120/80 mmHg.
