Pressure monitoring: Your students would likely understand that fluids like water flow down hill. In the body, the heart pumps the blood and creates a pressure that helps the blood "flow down hill". The healthy blood pressure (BP) is in a range that is not too high or low. The top number represents the peak pressure (top of hill) while the bottom number is the pressure at the bottom.
