Your Blood Pressure Low Enough?


High blood pressure

Blood Pressure is the main vital sign and at the same time it indicate the presence of your number of cardiovascular disease. ‘Vital Sign’ mean the condition that can be addressed by measuring different signals in your body.

Usually, the blood pressure can be classified as below:-

Classification Systolic (mm Hg) Diastolic (mm Hg)
Hypertensive => 135 => 85
Pre-hypertensive 120 ~ 139 80 ~ 89
Normal < 120 < 80


If your blood pressure is always at or greater than 140/90 mm Hg, then you are considered to have high blood pressure or hypertensive.

You must take note that hypertensive is a risk for your health as the blood vessel walls become irritated by increased pressure. Then your blood vessel walls will become more damaged, and the plaque tends to form, it directly result the increased atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. You can see that the most of the cases, the high blood pressure are among diabetic patients, so that the measuring blood pressure is very important in order to provide the proper treatment and preventive care.
