Blood Pressure (Definition)

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more

Is 110/90 blood pressure normal?

Is 110/90 blood pressure normal?

Yes: You may want to talk with your physician about why you'd worry about this -- I think you recognize your concern is baseless. Scientific medicine with lots of measurements generates a lot of numbers, and these vary tremendously. High cholesterol and high blood pressure may be present without your realizing it, but most other labs are guides to interpreting symptoms and mean little if you feel well. ...Read more

Why is my blood pressure so low? Under 110

Why is my blood pressure so low? Under 110

RU bleeding?: It's perfectly normal for healthy people to run a low bp, even as low as 80 or 90 (top number). Young women and children often do. If your BP is normally high, low BP could indicate a problem but if you're otherwise healthy, it's ok for you. Typical causes of bad low BP are: gunshot, knife wound, other combat injury, dehydration, sepsis (blood infection), anaphylaxis (severe allergy) & rare things. ...Read more

My grandmas blood pressure goes up to over 200/110 daily. What can she do to lower it?

My grandmas blood pressure goes up to over 200/110 daily. What can she do to lower it?

Go to see MD: Your grandmonther's blood pressure is way too high. She needs to be seen ASAP by an MD to get better 24 hours control. Does not need to be brought down to 130/80 or less as in a young person as she may not do well with such a low relative BP for her; but atleast down to 160/90 mmHg for now. Then reassess. She needs to be seen by MD ASAP. ...Read more

Not urgent: I will give you a general answer about blood pressure. Getting blood pressure and control helps prevent heart attacks, strokes and kidney problems. When you measure your blood pressure, make sure you are relaxed for more than 30 minutes and check it 3 times and you can use the lowest number. Remember to check with your pcp if you still have concerns ...Read more

I just took my blood pressure and it was 131/92. That's very high for me. I'm usually somewhere around 110-120/65-75 Thoughts?

I just took my blood pressure and it was 131/92. That's very high for me. I'm usually somewhere around 110-120/65-75 Thoughts?

What were you doing?: The RESTING blood pressure should be ~110 to 120 mmHg (top number) / ~65-75 mmHg (bottom). If you were exercising or had just come in from outside, your BP will be higher - that is not abnormal, that is natural MEASUREMENT ERROR. The TRUE RESTING BP has to be taken 5 minutes after quiet rest - sitting or laying flat - without any mental stress or other pressing worries. Recheck BP & go from there ...Read more

My blood pressure goes up and down throughout the day sometimes it will be 110/75 and sometimes it will go up to 150/86 is this normal?

My blood pressure goes up and down throughout the day sometimes it will be 110/75 and sometimes it will go up to 150/86 is this normal?

Yes: If it didn't go up at times, you'd like pass out when you stand up suddenly or when you run or otherwise exert yourself. The lowest reading you get is typically the best indicator of your resting, baseline blood pressure which is what's important. We like to see this below 140/90, which yours is. Good news! ...Read more

Male 22 blood pressure was 116/72 hr 78 sat down. Stood up went to 126/79 hr 88. Why didn't blood pressure drop as its meant to? Problem?

Male 22 blood pressure was 116/72 hr 78 sat down. Stood up went to 126/79 hr 88. Why didn't blood pressure drop as its meant to? Problem?

No problems here: 1. You don't have enough data to make any determination from your blood pressure and the postural changes. Your readings are well within the margins of error for any blood pressure measurement devices on the market.

2. Your youthful body has compensation mechanisms to immediately adjust and maintain blood pressure over almost any postural changes. Don't expect to see changes with those maneuvers. ...Read more

My blood pressure has always been on the low side. For last three days, have been at 145/110 or higher. What could cause a sudden change like that?

Many possibilities: Blood pressure can be affected in the short-term by the level of emotional or physical stress (including pain), excess salt intake in some people, excess caffeine, nsaids such as Ibuprofen or naproxen. If correcting these has no effect, it is important to be seen by a healthcare professional, as there are many other possibilities and too little space to list them. ...Read more

My blood pressure goes up from like 170 over 98 and then it dropped down to 110 over 55 I'm not goes back up to 171 over 101 and I have like a burnin?

Tough to say: Without taking a history and performing an exam it is hard to say. Rising blood pressure can be from emotional stress, physical activity prior to checking, over-the-counter medications like decongestants or nsaids, higher salt in diet (soup, canned food, lunch meat, cheese, snacks, frozen meals etc), increased weight, caffeine, though frequently unidentified cause. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more
