Diastolic Pressure Over 100
Bp yesterday, highest systolic 212 diastolic 119 lowest systolic 142 lowest diastolic 77 average systolic 171 average diastolic 100 light chest pain?
No: Systolic blood pressure occurs during contraction of the heart. The blood pressure falls progressively until the next contraction. Diastolic blood pressure is the pressure immediately before the subsequent contraction. Diastolic blood pressure can never be higher than systolic blood pressure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Exercising several years, good shape & good diet, 28 years old. Heart rate remains around 77-78 despite exercise. Blood pressure down recently 108/75?
High above 100 usually around 105 resting pulse. Age 55 obese high bp and diabetic high cholesterol. Wat could be the reason of high pulse no stress?
This needs further : evaluation and treatment.Time to c ur doc. ...Read more
Sitting pulse 80-90, standing pulse 100-110, presyncope while walking or exercise, normal blood pressure, 27 yrs old. Dangerous pulse?
Syndrome: I would suggest you get an evaluation to be sure whether there is valvar or other problem associated with your 'presyncope'. The information numbers you provided are less concerning than the fact of the symptom of presyncope. ...Read more
51 y/o with BP 115/65. HTN in family. Exercise and very good diet. After exercise systolic rises to 135-140 then drops diastolic unchanged. Normal?
Aging.: As we age vessels become stiffer. Stiffer vessels are associated with this. ...Read more
Blood pressure issue: "dizziness", which a vague term, commonly is reported with high blood pressure, especially if blood pressure rises abruptly from a lower level. The blood pressure is responsible for the dizziness, unless both are secondary to a third factor. Dizziness does not cause hypertension. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nope: Some people who walk around and feel well have diastolic bps of zero. (at least as estimated by a BP cuff which is an indirect measurement). My only caveat: get an echo and be sure you don't have aortic regurgitation which can be severe, cause no symptoms for years, and be hard to detect with a stethoscope. ...Read more
Several reasons: Most high blood pressure is idiopathic (no reason, you just have it) whether it is systolic or diastolic. It runs in families so if your parents have it, you are more likely to get it. There are occasion cases secondary to specific causes such as adrenal tumors, kidney problems, or narrowing of the aorta (called coarctation) and that is called secondary hypertension. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vascular tone: Both systolic and diastolic pressures are significantly impacted by the level of vascular tone or "resistance" or restriction to a given rate of blood flow. Although we have excellent medication options for managing vascular resistance, I have found that good cardiovascular conditioning seems to positively impact the diastolic blood pressure by enhancing "run off" in the peripheral vascular bed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why would you?: A low diastolic blood pressure could be due to leaking of the aortic valve or other problems so finding the cause is important. If you feel well, a low pressure, diastolic or systolic, may not be a bad thing. People with relatively low blood pressure live longer. And, how low are you talking about? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Artery Stiffness: The diastolic blood pressure or the "bottom number" when the blood pressure is taken is when the pressure at which the heart beat is no longer heard by the stethescope. It is related to the stiffness of the arterial tree in the body. The stiffer the artery the higher the diastolic pressure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Whenever you want: Diastolic blood pressure refers to the pressure in the arteries during the period of heart's relaxation, i.e. Once it finished ejecting blood during contraction. For every single heart beat, there is the period of contraction ("systolic blood pressure") and the relaxation ("diastolic"). In any single cardiac cycle, each of these arterial pressures can be measured. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
DPTI: It is a measure of coronary blood supply. Multiply the coronary perfusion pressure times the diastolic tmie. Cpp =diastollic blood pressure minus the left vetricular end diastolic pressure. Diastolic time is 60sec/heart rate-0.2seconds. The 0.2 is systolic time(fixed at 0.2s). Coronary flow occurs during diastole and relates to the pressure and how long diastole lasts. Now ask me what the evr is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In the elderly: Hello livk -- diastolic pressure is commonly lower as we get older -- partly due to the increased stiffness of the vessel and low volume reserve. However, please note that diastolic pressure is rarely accurate using the automated home BP machine -. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pressure in arteries: The pressure in the arteries when the heart contracts is the systolic blood pressure and when it relaxes the pressure is the diastolic pressure. It could be measured directly by putting a needle into an artery or indirectly with a blood pressure cuff. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How low?: If you do not have any symptoms and is it is between to 60 mmhg, it is probably normal for you. It is hard to diagnose someone just based on a number, may things can cause a drop in the diastolic bp, infections, dehydration, hormonal problems, heart problems, pregnancy, blood loss, lack of nutrient among many others. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
HTN: The pattern of high blood pressure is that young people tend to have high diastolic pressure and elderly people tend to have high systolic pressure. Both/either are harmful and should be controlled. The cause of essential hypertension has never been adequately determined. There is a genetic component and obesity is a risk factor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Most idiopathic: Most systolic or diastolic hypertension is 'essential" (no reason, you just have it). It does run in families. There are certain unusual causes such as adrenal tumors and blockage in the arteries that supply the kidney which cause "secondary hypertension". (there is a cause.) coarctation of the aorta is another example of "correctible hypertension.". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
