How does a blood pressure monitor work?

To begin, blood pressure is measured using a sphygmomanometer, or blood pressure monitor. Then you will have to know that if your blood pressure is recorded as 120/80, the number on top is the systolic pressure and the bottom number diastolic.

It is measures in millimetres of mercury. 120/80 mmHg is a good blood pressure. When your heart squeezes and pushes your blood through your arteries, your blood pressure goes up. When your heart is relaxed, your blood pressure goes down.

How to measure blood pressure?

We are now going to see at what arterial pressure corresponds to:

- Arterial pressure corresponds to the pressure exerted by blood on the arterial linings
- Arterial pressure is divided into two types of measures : systolic and diastolic arterial tension
- When the heart is pumping up the blood, it is systolic arterial tension. On the contrary, diastolic arterial tension corresponds to the relaxation of the heart. For example, a 14/8 tension corresponds to a systolic arterial tension of 14 and a diastolic arterial tension of 8.

It should be noted that the maximum value is 14/9, beyond, it is what we called hypertension (high blood pressure), and it presents potential vascular or cerebral risks. The minimum value is 10/6, below, it is what we can call hypotension (low blood pressure), it is not necessarily dangerous, but it should be checked.

You should keep an eye on arterial pressure because strokes (cerebro-vascular accident) represents 130 000 cases, of whom 50 000 died. Better to know that only one of ten people will not keep any after-effects of a cerebro-vascular accident.
