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
