Blood Pressure is the force of blood on artery walls. Normal pressure is a vital body function important for the proper flow of blood, rich in oxygen and nutrients, from the heart to the body’s organs and tissues. Blood pressure also helps carry the toxic waste in our bodies through our liver and kidney.
Blood pressure is a measure of the force that your heart uses to pump oxygen-rich blood out to your arteries. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg).
Systolic pressure is the pressure when your heart pushes blood out and Diastolic pressure is the pressure when your heart rests between beats. Normal range for blood pressure is when readings consistently range from 120mm Hg systolic and 80 mm Hg diastolic.
Nearly 1 in 2 adults have high blood pressure or hypertension. If left uncontrolled, high blood pressure can increase risk of heart disease, stroke, heart failure, kidney disease, pregnancy complications, and cognitive decline later in life.
We can check our heart health at home by measuring pulse rate and blood pressure. CoHeal mobile application can measure your blood pressure in real-time using Bio-scan.
Normal range for blood pressure is when readings consistently range from 120mm Hg systolic and 80 mm Hg diastolic.
High blood pressure is considered to be 140/90mmHg or higher. Low blood pressure is considered to be below 90/60mmHg.
