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 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
