Blood Presure Numbers
Were you looking for information about Blood Pressure Numbers? Blood presure numbers is a common misspelling of blood pressure numbers.
A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers that are written in the form of a fraction. The "top" number is the systolic pressure, which measures the pressure inside your blood vessels at the moment your heart beats. The "bottom" number is the diastolic pressure, which measures the pressure in your blood vessels between heartbeats, when your heart is resting. Normal blood pressure numbers range from 90/60 to 120/80.
