Systolic blood pressure the upper one?

Systolic blood pressure the upper one?

Systolic BP: Blood pressure is reported as - systolic bp/ diastolic bp. Upper number is the pressure generated when your heart beats or ejects blood from the heart and the lower number is when the heart is at rest between the heart beats. Best BP is 120/80. Systolic BP > 130 and diastolic > 80 need to be followed or treated. ...Read more

Transplant (Definition)

In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more

Renal hypertension is different from regular high blood pressure?

Renal hypertension is different from regular high blood pressure?

Specifies cause: The kidneys are integral to the control of blood pressure. This is why kidney (renal) diseases involving the kidneys themselves or the blood vessels feeding the kidneys can cause hypertension. When your doctor identifies the kidneys as the culprit, he may refer to it as renal hypertension. There are many other causes of high blood pressure, & optimal treatment may depend on the cause. See your md. ...Read more

Can you have diastolic heart failure with low blood pressure? Is BP getting lower a sign of progression of the hf?

Can you have diastolic heart failure with low blood pressure?  Is BP getting lower a sign of progression of the hf?

You can: You can have diastolic heart failure with any blood pressure. Lower BP (or higher) is not an indication that the hf is worse (or better). In other words, BP is not a marker for the severity of hf. ...Read more

Is a systolic blood pressure in the 120's and 130's considered too high?

Is a systolic blood pressure in the 120's and 130's considered too high?

OK for now: Many things affect blood pressure including diet, weight, exercise, anxiety, stress, and other diseases. It's never too early to work on a healthy lifestyle to keep your blood pressure low. What is considered OK today may be considered too high tomorrow! Diet, exercise and stress reduction. No smoking. ...Read more

When tracking blood pressure, is the "mean" value the important part? I usually have a high systolic and low diastolic like 134/68 and heart rate 48.

When tracking blood pressure, is the "mean" value the important part? I usually have a high systolic and low diastolic like 134/68 and heart rate 48.

Mostly systolic: The systolic pressure (upper number) is best understood in terms of what is normal and the relationship between BP and risk of stroke and heart disease. The diastolic pressure (lower number) seems to vary a lot depending on how the BP is measured (with a stethoscope or with an electronic BP cuff). The mean BP is rarely used outside the intensive care unit or the operating room. ...Read more

Is a diastolic blood pressure of 53 dangerously low?

Is a diastolic blood pressure of 53 dangerously low?

NOW BP MAYBE OK: Asymptomatic chronic low blood pressure is generally not a problem. However, some possible causes: low thyroid, low cortisol, heart disease, dehydration, blood loss, allergic reaction (anaphylaxis), infection (sepsis). You may need lab tests to check these possibilites. ...Read more

Depends: Typically over the long haul concern is raised over end organ damage (to the heart for example) if SBP>140 and/or DBP>90. ...Read more

I have a small aneurysm, 5mm, in the carotid artery, facing the right eye and high blood pressure.Is lozartan 100mg-12.5 mg, adecuate to lower my blood pr?

I have a small aneurysm, 5mm, in the carotid artery, facing the right eye and high blood pressure.Is lozartan 100mg-12.5 mg, adecuate to lower my blood pr?

It is a start: I would check with your pcp what kind of blood pressure control you are having before deciding what is the best way to change it. That being said, a 5mm aneurysm is big enough for treatment so you should be evaluated further in regards to this. ...Read more

Blood pressure significantly higher in ankles than arms. What causes this? 30mmgh diff. systolic. Isn't normal ankle BP slightly lower than arms?

Blood pressure significantly higher in ankles than arms. What causes this? 30mmgh diff. systolic. Isn't normal ankle BP slightly lower than arms?

Higher in legs: BP should be higher in the legs. There is something called an ABI, ankle brachial index. You put the BP in the arm over the BP in the leg and you should get a ratio greater than 1. a 300mm difference may be a bit high, i would do the test again to check. ...Read more

Is blood pressure usually low in someone with heart failure?

Is blood pressure usually low in someone with heart failure?

No: In CHF pts:systolic blood pressure - the top number of the blood pressure reading - lower than 100 mmhg had a mortality rate of 50 percent, significantly higher than the 32-percent rate observed in a comparison group of patients who had pressures between 130 and 139 mmhg. Low diastolic blood pressure - the lower number of a blood pressure reading - was also linked to increased mortality. ...Read more

Why does a rise in the total peripheral resistance and cardiac rate increase the diastolic pressure more than it increases the systolic pressure?

Why does a rise in the total peripheral resistance and cardiac rate increase the diastolic pressure more than it increases the systolic pressure?

Question: It doesn't always but in general the increase in peripheral resistance and decrease in duration of diastole will cause the diastolic pressure to increase along with the systolic but as diastole shortens relative to systole, the volume/resistance in the capillary beds will increase diastolic pressure relatively more ...Read more

What causes high systolic and low diastolic blood pressure in a young athletic man?

What causes high systolic and low diastolic blood pressure in a young athletic man?

Being athletic: This is physiologic rather than pathologic when a large stroke volume, often accompanied by a slow heart rate, is produced by the very strong heart. I've seen it often as a sometime sports physician. ...Read more

Could chest pressure and pounding hb be related to chronic left kidney pain? Trace protien in urine elevated creatine levels, low bp.

Could chest pressure and pounding hb be related to chronic left kidney pain? Trace protien in urine elevated creatine levels, low bp.

Not classically ...: While anything is possible, this would be rather atypical of kidney related problems causing the symptoms you've reported. I might say otherwise if you had some form of kidney disease that lead to very high blood pressures as this can lead to the symptoms you mention but low blood pressure - while can lead to a headache - more often makes you feel weak and lightheaded. ...Read more

What is the difference between systolic and daistolic blood pressure in heart block?

What is the difference between systolic and daistolic blood pressure in heart block?

Complex question: When the left ventricle contract the aortic valve open and blood is pump to aorta. The peak pressure at that moment is systolic. When lt ventricle is relax the pressure at the aorta is called diastolic. Pulse pressure is the pressure to create the pulse and isthe difference between sys vs dias. Now, during 3 degree av block the lt ventricular filling will decrease and systolic wil decrease. ...Read more

Kidney Transplant (Definition)

Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more

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
