What Is Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood against the walls of the arteries. Systolic pressure occurs when the heart contracts. Diastolic pressure occurs when the heart expands. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). One's natural blood pressure is represented by the fundamental pressure, which is measured first thing in the morning while one is still at rest and before eating.

Why Measure Blood Pressure At Home?

Blood pressure measured at a clinic or doctor's office may cause apprehension and produce an elevated reading, 25 to 30 mmHg higher than that measured at home. Home measurement reduces the effects of outside influences on blood pressure readings, supplements the doctor's readings, and provides a more accurate, complete blood pressure history.

What Is Hypertension And How Is It Controlled?

Hypertension, an abnormally high arterial blood pressure, if left unattended, can cause many health problems including stroke and heart attack. Hypertension can be controlled by altering lifestyle, avoiding stress, and with medication under a doctor's supervision.

WHO Blood Pressure Classification

Standards for assessment of high blood pressure, without regard to age, have been established by the World Health Organization (WHO).
