Blood Pressure Chart

+ Share This Facebook Twitter Google Plus Linkedin StumpleUpon Pinterest Delicious Share Email
Blood Pressure is an important vital sign. Blood Pressure is the measurement of pressure of the blood flowing through your blood vessels (called arteries) against the vessel walls. Blood pressure tends to change with age dramatically. Hence it is very crucial that you check your blood pressure regularly. Medindia’s simple tool lets you compare your blood pressure with the normal values.

This measurement is important if you are using a home electronic device to check your blood pressure. Checking pressure of the Upper arms' major artery (brachial artery) that carries blood from heart to elbow is the common method. Please remember to put on the cuff properly and if the pressure is high check it again when you are more relaxed. Also remember that your pressure may be higher after a meal or exercise.

Facts About Blood Pressure

  • High blood pressure is a condition in which the heart exerts more force to pump the same quantity of blood within the same time and over the years can harden the arteries thereby weakening your heart.
  • Main reasons for high blood pressure are stress or mental tension, heredity, excess salt intake, over-weight, sedentary life-style, smoking and excess alcohol.
  • High blood pressure often has no signs or symptoms. Hence it is highly recommended to get your blood pressure tested atleast every two years.

First off everone dump the salt, I will say it again dump the salt, eat apples, eat spinnach, every man woman and child should take cinnamon daily [ worlds greatest anti inflammatory ] And grapefruit pectin will unclog your arteries and lower cholestoral, my father lived 12 yrs longer than the doctors said he would by switching to all natural ingredients over pharmacutical meds. I am 55 and I am a pilot, I do smoke, I am a big man ( 260 lbs ) and I pass all flight medicals. Your body is designed to reject synthetics and it is designed to absorb all natural ingrediants. With the internet you can get daily health alerts from numerous medical institutes. And check the internet to see what the stuff you already have in your spice rack can do for you. I am not a doctor but I only take all natural ingrediants
