In brief: Art bp between beat
It is the pressure in the arterial system in between heart beats.
It is the lower number in a blood pressure. It reflects tone in the aterial bed.

In brief: Diasstolic [ressure
When the left ventricle squeezes blood out into the body the pressure produced is called the systolic pressure.
When the ventricle relaxes, the pressure in the vascular system without blood being pumped by the ventricle is called the diastolic pressure.

In brief: Heart cycle
The heart is a pump that works in a cycle.
Each heart beat has 2 components: systole when heart contracts to pump blood and diastole when heart relaxes to fill with blood. That is why blood pressure has 1 numbers: the upper one is systolic blood pressure and lower one is diastolic blood pressure.
