A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats.

Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
May be normal: If the elevated blood pressure is truly transient, it may just be "white coat hypertension", induced by anxiety or stress.
