How Rapidly Should My Systolic Pressure Return To Normal After Exercise
How high should your blood pressure raise after exercise-in terms of systolic and diastolic values? E.g is 127/74 before and 150/101 a normal increase after walking up and down a 16 inch step?
BP and excercise: It is normal for your blood pressure to increase during and right after exercising. If that is the reading about 20 minutes after resting, you should be concerned. Check with a local physician if that is the case. Otherwise, you should keep doing what you do. Exercise and eat healthy. ...Read more
The systolic blood pressure (the larger or "top" number of a reading) measures the pressure of the blood coursing through a vessel at its peak. It is a function of both how dilated the blood vessels are overall, the amount of blood in those vessels, and the force of squeeze generated by the heart. This number is the primary target ...Read more

Hi doctors, why would my systolic pressure 110 and diastolic 80, for the past 2 weeks, is this normal for a 60 year old male. Thankyou?
Echo findings are within normal limits except for mild to moderate right ventricular enlargement right ventricular systolic pressure 21 mmhg systolic BP 112. ..What does this mean is it bad?
Left-to-right shunt?: The assessment of right ventricular size by is not highly accurate. If the right ventricle truly is enlarged (better assessed by mri) the most likely cause is a left-to-right shunt. "pre-tricuspid" left-to-right shunts cause rv enlargement. Possibilities include anomalous pulmonary vein connection or atrial septal defect. These are not always evaluated in an adult echo lab. ...Read more
Is having a consistently lower than normal diastolic blood pressure a good or bad thing (i.e between 40-50 mmhg) if the systolic pressure is the normal range (i.e in the 90s mmhg)?
Prob normal for you: There are some red flags associated with a low diastolic blood pressure in older people (may mean arteries are stiffer, or taking too much of an anti--hypertensive drug (s), but in a young male such as yourself, it is likely normal. Especially since your systolic blood pressure, while normal, is on the low side, too. Unless you have symptoms such as dizziness/light-headedness, I would not worry:) ...Read more
Echo findings are within normal limits except for mild to moderate right ventricular enlargement right ventricular systolic pressure 21 mmhg? Ideas?
Accuracy: Echo is not an accurate or reliable test for rv enlargement. If there is a question, you would need an mri. Often, the absence of associated findings (e.g. Severe tricuspid regurgitation, elevated pulmonary artery pressure, intra cardiac shunting, changes of RVH on ekg, abnormal pulmonary vessels on chest xray) are enough to make rve unlikely. ...Read more
As new guideline says meds are for systolic pressure over 150 for those over 60 what happens to those on meds whose systolic no is below 150 with meds?
Don't change anythin: Until you go over these new recommendations with your personal physician, who knows you much more intimately than this panel of experts. ...Read more
Both, actually: In actuality, they're both important for their own reasons. The systolic pressure should be lower than 120 and the diastolic lower than 80 for optimal health and risk reduction (i.e. Heart disease and stroke). ...Read more
Pressure: Simple answer, it doesn't always increase with inspiration. It is a complicated interplay of hemodynamics and respiratory physiology, body position, body fluid status, cardiovascular condition and status and other factors. ...Read more
Variable: It's not unusual for BP to get up to 200 with really vigorous exercise. If it gets much higher than that, it's getting a bit too high. ...Read more
Should I be concerned if my blood pressure stays high after exercise, higher than before exercise. Why?
Cool down: There is a physiologic sequence to BP changes immediately following exercise: first it rises, then it gradually falls to levels below baseline. To see the full effect, take your blood pressure once a minute for the first 10 minutes after exercise while you remain lying down at complete rest (better yet, have someone else check it for you). ...Read more
Please advise what is the implication when there's a great difference between systolic pressure and diastolic pressure?

I am on 100 mg of losartan and 10 mg hydrochlorithiazide. My blood pressure spikes to140/100. Especially after exercise. What should I do?
Perfusion Pressure: The systolic blood pressure (the larger or "top" number of a reading) measures the pressure of the blood coursing through a vessel at its peak. It is a function of both how dilated the blood vessels are overall, the amount of blood in those vessels, and the force of squeeze generated by the heart. This number is the primary target of blood pressure treatment. ...Read more
