Can You Have A High Blood Pressure But Low Pulse Rate
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
I'm on bystolic (nebivolol) 10 mg. To treat my high blood pressure. I've noticed my pulse is staying in the low 50s. And b/p 100/55. Is this ok?
See your doctor soon: Sounds like you may be on too high a dose of medication or something else is going on. Get in to see your doctor as soon as you can. Bring your blood pressure cuff readings and the cuff itself to check against the reading in the doctor's office. If you're having chest pain or pressure or if you're having difficulty breathing, get to the emergency room. ...Read more
My blood pressure is 122/60 but my pulse is 81 is that safe? I take midicine for high blood pressure and a 81 low dose asprin
BP Goals: In general a systolic blood pressure between 110-135 is a good range for someone taking medications. There are special reasons that some doctors may change the goal blood pressure for a patient. Heart rate again depends, 50-80 is a reasonable range if the heart is otherwise normal. Good luck. ...Read more
My blood pressure is 106/65 and my pulse is 65.Do I need to go to the E.R.? I normally have high blood pressure.

I have high blood pressure and my pulse has been high(130-135). I have had all kinds of tests done and no dr. Can tell me why this is happening.
Lately my bp has been around 140/101 with a pulse over 100. How serious is this? I do have a history of high blood pressure but my pulse has always be
BP ↑; PulsePressure: at ~40 mmHg suggests normal heart stroke volume. Pulse rate, like BP, is controlled from brain: heart follows orders for strength & rate of contraction & BP is determined by peripheral vascular resistance. Also need to know rhythm to better guess possibly bases for ?ed rate. A chronically elevated heart rate, in sinus rhythm, can be a sign of heart weakness. Best seek assistance worthy your trust. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: Not usually. It would be important to get an EGG and find your underlying rythm. Maybe there are some conduction abnormalities or issues with your Sinus node. Have in mind that if you don't have symptoms, no treatment necessary for bradyardia. Unless you have a heart rate lower than 40 and depressed ejection fraction usually <40% ...Read more

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) (Definition)
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure (top number) and a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number). The systolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum contraction. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum relaxation. Ideal blood pressure is 120/80 or lower. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is 140/90 or higher. ...Read more
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
