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

Hypertension (Definition)

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

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

Resting pulse between 41-60 and blood pressure 140/70. Can hypertension cause bradycardia?

Resting pulse between 41-60 and blood pressure 140/70. Can hypertension cause bradycardia?

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

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 more

Is a low pulse rate with high blood pressure dangerous for an elderly woman?

Is a low pulse rate with high blood pressure dangerous for an elderly woman?

Depends.: Low pulse rate associated with symptoms or below 50 without meds probably requires some investigation. The degree of BP elevation determines how "dangerous" it is. In elderly patients it is often reasonable to accept higher baseline bp's rather than to push medications. If I can get a BP down to 140/90 range without side effects in an 80 year old I am generally pleased. ...Read more

What could be wrong if you have a low pulse rate but very high blood pressure?

What could be wrong if you have a low pulse rate but very high blood pressure?

A prompt evaluation: High blood pressure with a low pulse could be to due to a slow heart rate giving the heart has more time to fill so higher than normal volumes are pushed out creating high blood pressure. High blood pressure could signal your heart to slow down in an attempt to bring blood pressure down. There are other factors and prompt evaluation by a physician is indicated. ...Read more

How can hypertension/high blood pressure cause bradycardia?

Several mechanisms: Hypertension (HTN) can resulting in ischemia and abnormality of the conduction system of the heart which may slow heart rate.

After a head injury HTN and a slow heart rate are signs that there may be increase in intra-cranial pressure.

There is also a phenomena where correcting a slow heart rate might resolve HTN see link below.

What could be causing high blood pressure and low pulse in a fit person?

Hypertension=common: Cardiovascular fitness often results in lower heart rate, but high blood pressure still occur. Essential hypertension (causse unknown) accounts for >90% of cases and being physically fit does not eliminate hypertension--it helps. Obesity/sedentary lifestyles make it worse. So, diet/exercercise is always advisable. Keep exercising and consult doc for eval/treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it bad to have high blood pressure with low resting pulse?

How high?: Although we consider a low resting pulse to be a good thing and viewed as an indicator of good cardiovascular health, it does not offset the affects of high blood pressure. A thorough check for potential causes (secondary causes) of high blood pressure is probably a good idea. Ekg, cardiac echo, thyroid tests, kidney function. ...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

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) (Definition)

Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure occurs when blood pressure is 140/90 or higher. A systolic blood pressure (top number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum contraction and a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum relaxation. ...Read more
