What Do The Numbers Mean?

A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers:

Systolic – The first number, which indicates pressure in the arteries when the heart beats.

Diastolic – The second number, which indicates pressure in the arteries when the heart relaxes between beats.

If the first number is 110 and the second number is 70, this would be written as 110/70. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) so the reading would be 110/70mmHg or may be referred to as 110 over 70.

Use this chart to determine whether your blood pressure is within the healthy range.
