Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. It is measured in two numbers; systolic and diastolic (the first and second numbers). Normal blood pressure ranges from 90/60 mmHg to 120/80 mmHg.

Sphygmomanometer

It is an instrument for measuring blood pressure. It consists of an inflatable rubber cuff wrapped around the upper arm and connected to an apparatus that records pressure.

Pressure Matters

The efficient circulation of blood from the heart to the body's organs and tissues depends on normal pressure. Blood is pushed into the remainder of the body with each heartbeat. Pressure is higher close to the heart and lower farther away.
