It will vary with stress, stimulant intake (eg, caffeine), and activity level. People with high blood pressure can have wider-than-normal swings in bp, particularly in response to activity, stress, and times when their medication levels wane. ...Read more

Should I worry if my BP (systolic) is over 150?

Should I worry if my BP (systolic) is over 150?

Why do I have static electricity?

Why do I have static electricity?

It's everywhere: If you are asking why you get electric shocks when you touch certain things, it's because certain cloths and materials (silk blouses, rubber soles) will build up a static charge when they are rubbed against other material. This is the material, not you. But when you touch something that conducts electricity, the static charge which has been built up is suddenly released and you feel a shock. ...Read more

How are systolic and diastolic similar?

How are systolic and diastolic similar?

Blood Pressure: Blood pressure is related to the ability of the heart to pump blood and to the stiffness of the arteries. The systolic blood pressure or "top number" is dependent on the hearts ablility to pump blood into the arteries. The diastolic pressure or "bottom number" relates to the pressure in the arteries as the heart relaxes. Both will increase as the artery wall becomes stiffer with age or plaque. ...Read more

Is dystolic more important than systolic when taking a BP reading?

Is dystolic more important than systolic when taking a BP reading?

Controversial: Systolic BP is the maximum pressure in your arteries with a heart beat. Diastolic BP is resting pressure in your arteries between heart beats. Current 2013 guildines found Grade E (poor/opinion) evidence for treating Systolic BP > 140 in those aged <60 and Grade A (very good) evidence for treating Diastolic BP >90. This may indicate diastolic BP is more important but depends on level of each. ...Read more

What does systolic function preserved with an ef of 60% mean...Please?!

What does systolic function preserved with an ef of 60% mean...Please?!

That is normal: Normal ef, ejection fraction, is when 50-55% or more of the blood in the left ventricle, the chamber that pumps the blood throughout the body (the right ventricle pumps the blood through the lungs), is ejected with each heart beat. This occurs during systole. There still may be dysfunction during diastole when the ventricles are filling with blood. ...Read more
