Blood Pressure Screens:
Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time the heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure (the top number). When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure (the bottom number).
Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers, the systolic and diastolic pressures. Usually they are written one above or before the other. A reading of:
- 120/80 is normal blood pressure
- 140/90 or higher is high blood pressure or hypertension
High blood pressure usually has no symptoms but it can lead to stroke or a heart attack. However it can usually be controlled with medication.
Blood pressure screens are provided at no cost at the health department.
