The Cause Of Systolic Blood Pressure Is Higher Than Diastolic?
Good afternoon, why is systolic blood pressure higher than diastolic blood pressure? What is the reason? Thank you. 🙏
Good evening, thanks for the question
Blood pressure is the pressure produced by blood on the walls of blood vessels. Normal blood pressure values are systolic pressure 120 mmHg and diastolic pressure 80 mmHg.
Systolic blood pressure is the pressure produced by the heart muscle when pushing blood from the left ventricle to large aortic blood vessels throughout the body to supply blood. While diastolic blood pressure is the pressure on the artery walls
and blood vessels due to loosening of the ventricular muscles of the heart, which is when the left atrium pumps blood to the left ventricle.
Systolic blood pressure is higher because the force produced by the heart muscle in the thick left ventricle is useful for pushing blood throughout the body. While the heart muscle in the left atrium is not as thick as the left ventricle because it only pumps blood between the spaces in the heart so the force produced is also not great.
That's all, hope you can help
