Know your numbers
The first step in understanding high blood pressure is learning what your numbers mean. Blood pressure is measured with two numbers: systolic (the higher number) and diastolic (the lower number) (e.g., 120/80 mmHg):
- Systolic pressure occurs when your heart contracts.
- Diastolic pressure occurs when your heart relaxes and fills with blood.
- Blood pressure is measured using millimetres of mercury (mmHg), which is a standardized measurement of pressure.
The higher your systolic or diastolic blood pressure – and the longer it stays high – the greater the potential damage to your blood vessels. For many people high blood pressure can be managed by leading a healthy, active lifestyle. If you are having difficulty managing blood pressure PreCardix may help.
