And that means you got your blood pressure readings, are you aware what every one of the numbers means? I do not what you think question those numbers are directly related to my health, I most certainly will want to know just what exactly they mean. Your doctor saying that my readings are fine this is fine, is not enough.

Luckily blood pressure levels charts are readily available and they're mostly similar and extremely readable.

First lets get these big words handled, systolic and diastolic. Your heart generates pressure once it heats up contracts, it is called systolic pressure (systolic originated from a Greek word meaning 'contraction'). When your heart relaxes nonetheless generates pressure in fact it is called diastolic pressure (diastolic is from a Greek word meaning 'drawing apart'. Now we realize that our heart generates two types of pressure sufficient reason for its fancy names, lets just get right to the more dangerous stuff.

Your pressure readings should always have two numbers. The higher number is always the systolic (because that is when your heart is contracting which means more pressure) plus the lower number would be the diastolic (because that's when the center relaxes so this means less pressure).

The ideal list of numbers will be 120/80. Just etched these two numbers at heart, since this is will be your base. The dpi also shows within the blood pressure chart normally or optimal pressure. The numbers over the optimal pressure reading (120/80) are divided into four stages. To move into a stage, just add 20 for your systolic and 10 in your diastolic.

For example, stage 1 starts at 140/90. Stage 2 starts at 160/100, stage 3 starts at 180/110 and stage 4 starts at 200/120.

If your readings are between Stage 1 and Stage 2, you will have a hypertension this also is consider a Mild Stage. Should your readings are between Stage 2 and three, this is think about Moderate Stage and requires professional treatment instantly avoiding possible health threats. If however your reading is above 180/110, this is thought of as severe stage which could cause heart attack, kidney disease, stroke, or maybe death.

Remember that your evryday high blood pressure varies widely. It's not at all recommended that you trust in only one reading. You must distributed taking your readings thru out of the whole day to help you to determine the regular blood pressure levels after some time.
