You can find a free blood pressure chart online, which can be incredibly useful in tracking your overall health and well-being. Blood pressure is a set of numbers that tell doctors how much pressure is in your arteries while the heart is beating and while it is resting.
Pressure is necessary, because it pushes the blood throughout your body. Yet, if there is, a complication that keeps the artery from dilating enough, this could lead to significant complications.
Doctors have adjusted the blood pressure chart to provide an even closer examination of where things stand. The old, and still most commonly used chart, provides for three levels of hypertension (high blood pressure.) The first is pre-hypertension, followed by stage 1 hypertension and stage-2 hypertension. Now, there is more distinction in the range.
The new stages range from a mild stage 1 to a very severe stage 4 level. Any level of high blood pressure needs monitoring and action taken, to help break down and protect your long-term health.
The range for high systolic blood pressure is as follows. This is the number listed first in the reading. It represents the amount of pressure in the arteries during heartbeats:
At 180 and above, you are at a high risk for the development of cardio vascular disease and may exhibit signs of stress, bloating and a red coloring.
Diastolic blood pressure ranges provide information on the amount of pressure in the arteries during periods of rest, when the heart is not beating. This is the second number in a blood pressure reading:
The good news is that you can track your own blood pressure using this chart.
I have provided you with a printable blood pressure chart to keep track of the changes in your blood pressure.
Do note that your blood pressure may be higher and lower, naturally, throughout the day. These changes are normal, though a consistently high blood pressure reading is not.
High blood pressure can cause so much damage to our bodies, do you have a story to tell about this.
Or how did you overcome this silent killer. Tell us your secret.
