Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is a measure of the force of blood against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body. It's recorded as two numbers: systolic pressure (the higher number) represents the pressure when the heart contracts, and diastolic pressure (the lower number) represents the pressure when the heart is at rest between beats. Blood pressure readings are important indicators of cardiovascular health, and high blood pressure (hypertension) can increase the risk of various health issues, including heart disease and stroke. Regular monitoring and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are essential for managing blood pressure.
