What Is The Normal Diastolic Pressure While Exercising
Physiology: Diastolic pressure reflects the properties of the arterial tree in between heart beats. Exercise causes blood vessels to dilate, reducing resistance to forward flow (decreased impedance or afterload). Diastolic pressure remains the same or even falls following vigorous exercise. Systolic pressure initially rises but it falls to below baseline levels during cooldown. This is normal exercise physio. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In the elderly: Hello livk -- diastolic pressure is commonly lower as we get older -- partly due to the increased stiffness of the vessel and low volume reserve. However, please note that diastolic pressure is rarely accurate using the automated home BP machine -. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Changes are common: Usually systolic and diastolic BP will drop minimally while standing unless you are dehydrated. If you are healthy and do not have hbp, there is no use in measuring BP and could be generate plenty of anxiety. If you want to be healthy, i rather you spend your energy in exercising and eating right. ...Read more
A little high: I am assuming you mean systolic of 130, not 13. A systolic of 130 is normal for most people but there are some conditions where we would like it a bit lower. Diastolic blood pressure should definitely be below 90 and 80 would be even better. A single measurement of a high blood pressure is not concerning but if the diastolic stays high you should see MD. Also avoid salt, caffeine and alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it typical when walking around doing normal daily activity your diastolic pressure would go above 100?
Not normal- see pcp: A 24 hour BP reading could help if available. ...Read more
I took a pre-workout drink once, and ever since my diastolic pressure is >90. What can I do to lower it?
Doubtful: I doubt that the two occurrences are related. Are you measuring your BP at complete rest (for 15 minutes)? Is the cuff large enough for your biceps ? Many brands of birth control pills cause htn. I suspect one of the above 3 issues is contributing - not the drink. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do I hear my diastolic pressure all the way down too 0 when my syostolic pressure is normal? Does that mean my blood pressure is 120/0?
No: In young healthy people with strong hearts, especially if they are thin, it is not uncommon to be able to hear the blood flow sounds (korotkoff sounds) all the way down to 0. In those cases, the diastolic blood pressure is determined when the korotkoff sound intensity decreases slightly (becomes muffled). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nope: Some people who walk around and feel well have diastolic bps of zero. (at least as estimated by a BP cuff which is an indirect measurement). My only caveat: get an echo and be sure you don't have aortic regurgitation which can be severe, cause no symptoms for years, and be hard to detect with a stethoscope. ...Read more
Several reasons: Most high blood pressure is idiopathic (no reason, you just have it) whether it is systolic or diastolic. It runs in families so if your parents have it, you are more likely to get it. There are occasion cases secondary to specific causes such as adrenal tumors, kidney problems, or narrowing of the aorta (called coarctation) and that is called secondary hypertension. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vascular tone: Both systolic and diastolic pressures are significantly impacted by the level of vascular tone or "resistance" or restriction to a given rate of blood flow. Although we have excellent medication options for managing vascular resistance, I have found that good cardiovascular conditioning seems to positively impact the diastolic blood pressure by enhancing "run off" in the peripheral vascular bed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why would you?: A low diastolic blood pressure could be due to leaking of the aortic valve or other problems so finding the cause is important. If you feel well, a low pressure, diastolic or systolic, may not be a bad thing. People with relatively low blood pressure live longer. And, how low are you talking about? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Artery Stiffness: The diastolic blood pressure or the "bottom number" when the blood pressure is taken is when the pressure at which the heart beat is no longer heard by the stethescope. It is related to the stiffness of the arterial tree in the body. The stiffer the artery the higher the diastolic pressure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Whenever you want: Diastolic blood pressure refers to the pressure in the arteries during the period of heart's relaxation, i.e. Once it finished ejecting blood during contraction. For every single heart beat, there is the period of contraction ("systolic blood pressure") and the relaxation ("diastolic"). In any single cardiac cycle, each of these arterial pressures can be measured. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
DPTI: It is a measure of coronary blood supply. Multiply the coronary perfusion pressure times the diastolic tmie. Cpp =diastollic blood pressure minus the left vetricular end diastolic pressure. Diastolic time is 60sec/heart rate-0.2seconds. The 0.2 is systolic time(fixed at 0.2s). Coronary flow occurs during diastole and relates to the pressure and how long diastole lasts. Now ask me what the evr is. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
