Why is my pulse pressure narrow? Bp ranges from 99/77 hr93 100/71 hr 84 99/73 hr 83 109/79 hr89 all taken within a few minutes of each other. Dangerous?
Margin of error: When taking blood pressure it is important to remember that all cuff measurements will have potential for slight variability. 99/77 ; 100/71 really aren't out of sync with each other. Also remember repeatedly inflating a BP cuff over the same spot in a short time span can artificially effect the results. ...Read more

I am 22 and I noticed that I have a consistently wide pulse pressure. My resting is normally 60 mmhg and my exercise is 120 mmhg. What should I do?
I assume diastolic!: It is not normal for diastolic blood pressure to double during exercise, particularly to the level of 120. This would indicate pre-hypertension. If you are talking about systolic blood pressure, the oddity would be one of 60 at rest, which is abnormally low. But the perfectly healthy response is a fall in diastolic blood pressure and rise in systolic during vigorous activity! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My pulse rate is normal, but pulse pressure is high. PP is typically around 60 at rest and 70-80 when stressed or after walking. Is this a concen?
Need context: It's hard to determine for your situation. If your pulse rates are abnormal - it lacks clinical context. Fo you have symptoms at your resting rate? Are you on medications like a beta blocker that can affect your heart rate? Remember, we doctors avoid treating numbers- we treat the patient! Try adding more clinical details to your question. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

What is the safest range of a pulse pressure in a blood pressure? Is it really 30-60 difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure?
Many factors. HT Pri: The pulse pressure is just 1 of many numbers on a blood pressure recording that has information for doctors. While the "normal" pulse pressure is about 40 mmHg, with a range you mentioned, a pulse pressure outside of that range may not be significant. In general, a high pulse pressure is worse than a low one, but it also depends on the NUMBER of the systolic (upper)reading. TTYD or HealthTap Prime ...Read more
Have chronic symptomatic low pulse pressure (25-30) with normal hr. Have had ekg, stress echo, 48 holter and ep study, nothing urgent. What is wrong?
Low pulse pressure: Low pulse pressure is generally due to low systolic and near normal diastolic theoretically this can cause low perfusion in tissues but generally tissues respond by dilating blood vessels I am not sure what your symptoms are make sure sodium handling whether due to hormonal or otherwise should be checked drink lots of fluids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Same as elevated BP: Widened pulse pressure is a marker of cardiovascular mortality. Must be evaluated in context of other "blood pressures" systolic, diastolic and mean bp. Must figure personal characteristics such as height and known atherosclerotic stiffness. If pulse pressure is 120 you must have HTN and this should be treated down to goal. Once that is done your pulse pressure may not be elevated at all. ...Read more
It depends: As in what the cause of a low/narrow pulse pressure is. Extremely low pulse pressures like you mention can be related to congestive heart failure, shock, aortic stenosis (narrow of the major outlet valve of the heart) or other things like fluid around the heart affecting how the heart pumps (cardiac tamponade). In the end, this can lead to poor blood flow of the organ systems of the body. ...Read more
Widen pulse pressure (SBP - DBP) constantly 60 or 65, what cardio tests shall I go through in order to detect if there is any cardio disorder.
Forget "tests": You don't need any tests (yet, and maybe not at all). See a good doctor, share your medical history with them and any commplaints you might have about your heart. If your history suggests anything wrong, your doctor will know what to do. Numbers mean nothing outside of some context. ...Read more
