Blood Pressure Calculator

It is the force that moves blood through our circulatory system. The reading is recorded with 2 numbers- systolic (upper value) that is the pressure exerted by the blood against the artery wall when your heart beats, and diastolic (lower value) - the pressure exerted by the blood against the artery wall when the heart is at rest between beats. The unit measured in is millimeters of mercury (mmHg). Blood pressure readings occasionally fluctuate according to your hearts needs depending on your activity level; however, high blood pressure over an extended period of time is one of the risk factors for heart disease.
