How to Spot the Signs of High Blood Pressure

Hypertension is a'silent killer' It's a 'invisible' disease. High blood pressure doesn't create visible symptoms that patients or physicians may see.

Blood pressure? Arteries carry blood from the heart to the body. Every pulse pulls blood through the arteries, causing pressure.

Blood flow requires this blood pressure. High blood pressure stresses the heart and may damage arteries and organs.

Systolic blood pressure is the highest measurement. So, 120/80. Systolic blood pressure is the greatest in your arteries as the heart pumps blood to the body.

Diastolic blood pressure is the bottom number. So, 120/80's "80" Diastolic blood pressure is lowest when your heart is resting.

The ACC and AHA classify blood pressure. In 2017, blood pressure stages were decreased since even Stage 1 may harm health and has to be addressed.
