How to measure blood pressure?

 How to measure blood pressure?

Blood pressure is usually measured by inflating a cuff around the upper arm. It then measures the pressure in the cuff that prevents blood from passing out in the arm. This corresponds to the pressure inside the blood vessels.

Pressure is indicated by two digits, for example, 120/80.

     The first number is the pressure (when the heart contracts, "systolic" pressure). It is the highest pressure in the blood vessels.

     The second number is the pressure (when the heart relaxes between beats, "diastolic" pressure). It is the lowest pressure in the arteries.

To get your blood pressure measured, you can contact your GP. It can also be checked at many pharmacies. You can also get your own blood pressure monitors and easily check at home whenever you want.
