What Is Blood Pressure hypotension hypertension systolic diastolic pressure

Hi i m sami from fawzi academy in this tutorial i will generally talk about blood pressure Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels and is one of the principal vital signs. blood pressure usually refers to the arterial pressure of the systemic circulation, usually measured at a person’s upper arm. A persons blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic pressure over diastolic pressure and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Normal resting blood pressure for an adult is approximately 120/80 mm Hg. Blood pressure varies depending on situation, activity, and disease states, and is regulated by the nervous and endocrine systems.

Blood pressure that is pathologically low is called hypotension, and pressure that is pathologically high is hypertension. Both have many causes and can range from mild to severe, with both acute and chronic forms. Chronic hypertension is a risk factor for many complications, including peripheral vascular disease, heart attack, and stroke. Hypertension is generally more common, also due to the demands of modern lifestyles. Hypertension and hypotension go often undetected because of infrequent monitoring.
