Search the FAQ for entries containing:

"Blood Pressure" is the force exerted on the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood through the body. Blood pressure is measured as systolic (blood pressure when the heart beats while pumping blood) and diastolic (blood pressure when the heart is at rest between beats). If a blood pressure measurement reads 120 systolic and 80 diastolic, it is commonly referred to as "120 over 80" or "120/80 mmHg." Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

Blood pressure varies throughout the day. Typically, it lowers as you sleep and rises when you wake up. Blood pressure also rises when you're excited, nervous, or active.
