The amount of the diastolic and systolic high blood pressure is what you’ll see on your blood pressure display. As your heart beats, your systolic blood pressure increases, determining the force it applies to the artery walls. The force your heart places on the walls of your arteries between beats is determined by your diastolic blood pressure, which is the last figure on the blood pressure reading you get.
There are 4 levels of high blood pressure, varying from normal to stage 2 hypertension (high blood pressure). The seriousness of your condition is identified by your blood pressure. Your physician should use the average of 2 or more blood pressure measurements taken during three or more office sees to obtain an accurate evaluation of your high blood pressure.
