Blood Pressure And Heart Rate That Are Outside Normal Values?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. First, you need to know the normal value of blood pressure and heart rate. Blood pressure is divided into systole and diastole, or commonly called upper numbers and lower numbers, where the top number is the number that is called before the slash "/", and diastole is after it. Normally, systole is in the range of 100-120, and diastole is in 60-80. So that normal blood pressure ranges between 100/60 to 120/80.
Although systole is normally only up to 120, above 120 is not necessarily called high blood pressure or hypertension. Hypertension is defined as a blood pressure that is more than equal to 140/80 which is measured at least 3 times in different times and circumstances. It takes 3x measurements on different conditions because blood pressure is very easy to change with position, activity, emotions, and so forth. So with your systole numbers 135 and 138, it's actually still in the gray area.
In addition, this automatic measurement also has a range of approximately 5 mmHg accuracy or even more depending on the ability of the engine. So the number 135 with an accuracy of 5 mmHg, could be less or less original 5, and could be more 5, not exactly 135. Therefore, for your blood pressure measurement, so far it has reached the threshold, and the recommendation should be a re-examination using a tool manual at the health center or clinic.
As for the heart rate, it is normally between 60-100, and can be lower for athletes, even reaching 40 times per minute. In this case, with an average heart rate of 85-100, your results are normal. So the only thing to watch out for is blood pressure.
If left unchecked, you can experience high blood pressure and the risk of having high blood pressure include heart swelling and kidney damage. Therefore, you should begin to continue your examination to the doctor. The tools at home are indeed good for initial examination, but once the numbers come out that are not normal, you should immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
