Blood pressure

is the pressure of the circulating blood against the walls of the blood vessels results from the systole of the left ventricle of the heart sometimes measured for a quick evaluation of a person’s health.
Adult blood pressure is considered normal at 120/80 where the first number is the systolic pressure and the second is the diastolic pressure. A bad blood pressure may have severe effect on your health because your organs won’t receive enough blood or too much.

There are 4 types of Blood Pressure :

  • systolic pressure :
    the blood pressure (as measured by a sphygmomanometer) during the contraction of the left ventricle of the heart
  • diastolic pressure :
    the blood pressure (as measured by a sphygmomanometer) after the contraction of the heart while the chambers of the heart refill with blood
  • arterial pressure :
    the pressure of the circulating blood on the arteries
  • venous pressure :
    the pressure exerted on the walls of the veins by the circulating blood

Some blood pressure cases may be treated by some over the counter drugs.
