Blood Pressure Calculator

Are you confused with your blood pressure readings? Not sure when the numbers indicate high blood pressure or low blood pressure?

If you have recently checked your blood pressure and know the top and bottom numbers, we suggest that you key it in the box below and instantly get an idea whether it is normal or abnormal. The calculator compares your blood pressure with that of the normal range for your age group and detects if there is an abnormality. The final result will help you understand why it is important to regularly keep track of your blood pressure readings and gives some tips on how to maintain a normal blood pressure.

Blood pressure is a 'mathematical representation' of two forces. The top number (systolic) is the force applied against the walls of the arteries when the heart beats and the bottom number (diastolic) is the force applied against the walls between the two beats of the heart (i.e. when heart is in a relaxed state). A blood pressure range of 110/70 to 120/80 is considered normal.

The readings should be taken when a person is in a relaxed and resting state. The test should be repeated at different intervals of the day or over a few days until similar values are consistently obtained. Measurement should be avoided immediately after exercise or a meal, as blood pressure may be high at these times.

Beware also of the White Coat Syndrome! It is a condition in which some people blood pressure is high in a doctor’s office but normal at home. This may be because of anxiety and stress. White Coat Syndrome may lead to misdiagnosis and unnecessary treatment.
