Blood Pressure Chart

Last Updated on Mar 29, 2022

The risk of hypertension, or high blood pressure, increases as you get older. This chart graphically shows the impact of age on systolic and diastolic pressures in a way that you can easily understand.
The chart displays the systolic blood pressure (top number) and diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) values that are classified as normal or borderline or high. As you get older the chances of isolated systolic hypertension are higher.

Blood Pressure is the measurement of pressure of the blood flowing through your arteries against the wall. It can be easily checked at home with an electronic device. Most commonly it is checked in the upper arms. Please remember to put on the cuff properly (watch animation) 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.

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.
