what is the normal psi of your aorta?

2-3.5 PSI: Pressure in the aorta is measured in mm of mercury, or mmhg. To convert to psi, divide normal aortic pressure of 100-180 mmhg by 10 to get cmhg, then use any simple conversion chart or app. It works out to 1.9 to 3.5 psi. Curious as to why you would want to know this though?
