Blood pressure is determined by ones cardiac output, blood volume, and peripheral resistance. Blood pressure is expressed by a systolic pressure and diastolic pressure and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). Systolic pressure is the maximum pressure during ventricular contraction of the left ventricle while…

  • Essay On Blood Pressure

    Blood Pressure Blood pressure , as a physiological variable of humans, is a hydrostatic pressure, utilized by blood on the walls of blood vessels.(Tortora and Derrickson 2011). It is caused by the contraction of the ventricles and the amount of blood in the whole cardiovascular system. The mean blood pressure (the average pressure in the cardiac cycle) is coordinated in order to provide adequate blood transfer to the tissues.(Saladin,2001). The decrease of blood pressure is followed by an…

  • BMI And Blood Pressure

    My results mean that my blood pressure is normal. Blood pressure is measured in two numbers. Systolic and diastolic pressures are evaluated into a ratio to make up a person’s blood pressure. Systolic pressures are usually the larger number that is placed as the numerator of the fractional radio. It measures the pressure that is produced in the arteries when the heart muscle contracts. Diastolic pressures are usually the smaller number that is placed as the denominator of the fractional ratio. It…

  • The Importance Of Blood Pressure Screening

    of readily accessible resources available to the public. Our plan is to institute a clinic offering regular blood pressure screening to the public that is free of charge. Having a screening clinic readily available to the public could help recognize hypertension at an earlier stage. According to Siu, the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends screening for high blood pressure after the age of 18. There is evidence that screening and treatment completed early for hypertension…

  • The Dangers Of High Blood Pressure

    BLOOD PRESSURE What Is Blood Pressure? Blood pressure determines the force of the blood that pushes against the arteries walls. Blood pressure can be measured to determine if the force is just right or if it need attention. The first number measured is called the systolic, you often hear it referred to as the top number. This number measures the pressure in which your hearts pumps out the blood. The second number measured is called the diastolic blood pressure, you often hear it referred to as…

  • Hypertension And High Blood Pressure

    known as High blood pressure is defined as a high force of blood pushing on the walls of the arteries during the flow of blood. Blood pressure is measured as the heart pumps and as the heart fills and rests in between heartbeats. This is called systolic pressure and diastolic pressure. They are both measured in milliliters of mercury. Those with a systolic pressure of over 120 and a diastolic pressure of above 80 are clinically defined as having prehypertension and those with a systolic…
