What Is The Difference Between Venous Blood Pressure And Arterial Blood Pressure
See Below: Venous blood pressure is in the venous system and usually should not exceed 5-8 mmhg. The venous system takes de-oxygneated blood back to the heart. Arterial blood pressure is in the arteries, ie taking oxygen to the body, and is usually more than 70 mmhg for the diastolic and 130mmhg for the systolic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
Pressure/volume: Low pressures are usually associated with low pulse volumes ...Read more
Complex question: When the left ventricle contract the aortic valve open and blood is pump to aorta. The peak pressure at that moment is systolic. When lt ventricle is relax the pressure at the aorta is called diastolic. Pulse pressure is the pressure to create the pulse and isthe difference between sys vs dias. Now, during 3 degree av block the lt ventricular filling will decrease and systolic wil decrease. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Almost same: High BP is a single reading that can go up temporarily from exercise, stress, pain or illness. Hypertension is a treatable diagnosis of repeated high BP readings > 140/90 without acute stress. Other than that they are often used to mean the same thing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Small difference: CBG is combined arterio-venous blood so the blood sugar from capillaries is a little higher because arteriole blood is more nutrient rich, bringing nutrients to tissues. Venous blood has already been through the capillary system where nutrients/metabolites are "picked up and dropped off. " venous blood has less glucose in it because it is blood carrying away much of what was already metabolized. ...Read more
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
Close relationship: The kidneys are one of the primary filters of toxins from blood. They also serve to maintain salt and water balance in the body. The kidneys release chemicals that increase blood pressure to maintain a consistant flow of blood through them. The process is very efficient until outside forces come into play such as obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, excessive salt intake. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How can you tell the difference between impeded blood flow (increased intracranial pressure) and sinus pressure?
Location: Increased intracranial pressure would be more generalized "headache" or pressure. I would expect there to be neurologic deficits as well: change in mentation, gait, speech, etc. Sinus pressure is located: maxillary - below eyes; ethmoid - between eyes; frontal - above eyes; sphenoid - on top of head or very back of head. Sinus pressure is usually very localized. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Increased risk: People who drink more than two alcoholic beverages per day (one drink being a glass of wine, a beer, or a shot of liquor) have about double the risk of developing high blood pressure. Studies have shown that people who drink to excess can reduce their blood pressure by cutting down on alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
