When In The Heart Does Diastolic Pressure Occur
Which heart valvular disease is just associated with low diastolic blood pressure? (Systolic is good for instance 110)
What is the lowest heart beat rate that could be considered normal? Also please tell me what the lowest normal diastolic blood pressure is.
I thought diastolic blood pressure is the pulling of blood into the heart and systolic blood pressure is responsible for pushing it out. Am i right?
Not exactly: Your description of systolic is correct: it's the pressure generated by the contraction of the heart. But diastolic pressure, which is measured between heart beats when the heart is filling/not pumping reflects the integrity of the aortic valve and the elasticity of the arterial system, especially the aorta. ...Read more
High diastolic pressure in heart found during cardiac catheterization, what does it indicate and/or is further testing needed?
Heart pressure: This is likely diastolic dysfunction, which indicates a stiffness in the way your heart relaxes. The heart may also be thickened. Usual cause is hypertension, and it may be reversibile with treatment. Diastolic pressure at cath will also be elevated with an enlarged or weakened heart (heart failure). The doc that did your cath can explain why yours is elevated. ...Read more

Was diagnosed with diastolic dysfunction was put on 25mg cozzar pill. Do i take it even if my blood pressure is normal. Heart disease bad in family.
Reasonable to take: Diastolic HF refers to stiffness in the heart muscle where the heart muscle doesn't relax fully after each contraction. Losartan is in a class of medications that helps the heart function better - independent of its effect on blood pressure. The consensus is not universal but overall is considered the right thing to do. Unless you are very sensitive, this dose shouldn't affect your pressure. ...Read more
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
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
HTN: The pattern of high blood pressure is that young people tend to have high diastolic pressure and elderly people tend to have high systolic pressure. Both/either are harmful and should be controlled. The cause of essential hypertension has never been adequately determined. There is a genetic component and obesity is a risk factor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
