Stages of Hypertension
« on: February 18, 2019, 02:33:18 am »
High Blood Pressure (HBP) or hypertension is a persistent abnormal elevation of the pressure within the arteries which deliver blood to the entire body. An adult?s blood pressure is calculated by using two numbers. The heart?s rhythmic pumping action creates the upper systolic pressure (normal is 120 mm. Hg. or lower) and its resting pressure between heart beats is the lower diastolic pressure (normal is 80 mm. Hg. or lower). There are four stages of high blood pressure or hypertension:

STAGE 1 or Prehypertension is 120/80 to 139/89
STAGE 2 or Mild Hypertension is 140/90 to 159/99
STAGE 3 or Moderate Hypertension is 160/100 to 179/109
STAGE 4 or Severe Hypertension is 180/110 or higher
