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 was up when i took cetirizine and i have irregular heartbeat. i am on irbesartan for high bp. will this go away?

If cetirizine is: the problem then its mild-anticholinergic effect on the heart should subside in about 24 hrs even though its antihistaminic effect may linger for up to 72 hrs. However , it is unusual to see elevated BP from this drug and you may need to see your doctor about this issue. ...Read more

Palpitations: Palpitations have many causes from anxiety through anatomic and physiologic abnormalities. The feeling of bounding usually relates to the volume of blood pumped with each palpitation. There is no simple single answer for the question. If you're bothered by the feeling should consult a dr. To see if the problem can be clarified. Many people have that blood pressure. Discuss with your doc. ...Read more

Occasional heart pain. Blood pressure drops while sitting leading to feeling like passing out.  Irregular heartbeat. What could it be?

Low BP: Your symptoms need to be evaluated. It would be irresponsible for me to give you a diagnosis without examining you. Go to a cardiologist, or an er, to get a meaningful explanation of what is causing your irregular heart beat and why you feel as if you are going pass out. I suggest you do it sooner than later. Good luck. ...Read more

My husband's blood pressure is 144/90 and I wanted to know if he has high blood pressure and his heart beat is 58 per minute what does it mean ?

Slightly high BP: In general we like for blood pressure to be less than 140/90. With certain conditions like diabetes or heart disease we might want it to be even lower. Normal pulse is 60-100 but slightly low pulse is not a problem. Your husband should keep a check on his blood pressure and if it remains high he should see a doctor. Exercise, weight control and avoiding salt, caffeine and alcohol can lower BP. ...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
