Check Your Blood Pressure Norms

Usually, blood pressure norms are measured in two readings.

Understand the complete range:

Systolic blood pressure is the upper reading or the first number, which means that it measures the pressure pumped by your blood in contradiction to the walls of your arteries upon the heartbeat or contraction.

The normal systolic blood pressure reading should be 120 mm Hg.

Diastolic blood pressure is the lower reading or the second number, which measures the pressure within your blood pressure when between the heartbeat and when the heart relaxes.

The normal diastolic blood pressure reading should be 80 mm Hg.
