Not normal: Normal BP if measured correctly, for a healthy adult is typically considered to be normal when between 90/60 and 120/80. Reading of130/90 would be considered high. If remains high, treatment may be needed. Heart rate is in the upper range of normal.

See your doctor: Your doctor will answer preventative medical questions during your annual physical exam. Your pharmacy will check your pulse and blood pressure. The machine will tell you if it is normal. Normal heart rate is from 60 to 100. Normal blood pressure is 120 over 80 but the variation is vast. The top number can go as low as 100 if that is your usual reading and go up to 140. Lower number 60 to 94.
