the force of blood against artery walls Systolic blood pressure measures the force of blood as the heart contracts and pushes blood through the circulatory system Diastolic blood pressure measures the force of blood in arteries as the heart relaxes
the force of blood exerted on the inside walls of blood vessels Blood pressure is expressed as a ratio (example: 120/80, read as "120 over 80") The first number is the systolic (sis-TAH-lik) pressure, or the pressure when the heart pushes blood out into the arteries The second number is the diastolic (DY-uh-STAH-lik) pressure, or the pressure when the heart rests
Your blood pressure is the amount of force with which your blood flows around your body. Your doctor will monitor your blood pressure Prime Minister Pavlov had been taken ill with high blood pressure. The pressure exerted by the blood against the walls of the blood vessels, especially the arteries. It varies with the strength of the heartbeat, the elasticity of the arterial walls, the volume and viscosity of the blood, and a person's health, age, and physical condition. the force with which blood travels through your body. Force originating when the heart's pumping pushes the blood against the walls of the blood vessels. Their stretching and contraction help maintain blood flow. Usually measured over an arm or leg artery in humans, blood pressure is expressed as two numbers; normal adult blood pressure is about 120/80 mm of mercury. The higher number (systolic) is measured when the heart's ventricles contract and the lower (diastolic) when they relax. See also hypertension, hypotension
Blood pressure results from two forces One is created by the heart as it pumps blood into the arteries and through the circulatory system The other is the force of the arteries as they resist the blood flow The higher (systolic) number represents the pressure while the heart is beating The lower (dia-stolic) number represents the pressure when the heart is resting between beats
The pressure that the blood exerts against the walls of the arteries as it flows through them Blood pressure measurements consist of two numbers The first shows the systolic blood pressure, the second, the diastolic blood pressure One of the functions of the kidneys is to help control the blood pressure In kidney failure, the blood pressure tends to be high
