Blood pressure represents one indication of heart health. A doctor or nurse assesses blood pressure through the measured expression of two numbers. The top number is called the systolic pressure and the bottom is defined as the diastolic number. The total blood pressure number reads like a fraction such as 120/80.
Blood pressure readings are expressed in millimeters of mercury, indicative of pressure, expressed as mm Hg. A standard reading of normal blood pressure in an adult is below 140/80 mm Hg and above 90/60 mm Hg. Normal consists of a range due to the reality that all individuals consist of some unique measures. Variations from normal prove acceptable if they stay in the range of normal.
