Normal Blood Presure

Were you looking for information about Normal Blood Pressure? Normal blood presure is a common misspelling of normal blood pressure.
 
Many people define normal blood pressure as an average reading of 120/80 or below. However, "normal" can actually fall anywhere in a range from 90/60 to 120/80 -- it's not just one set number. An average blood pressure can only be determined when multiple readings are taken over at least three days.
 
Measuring blood pressure often involves wrapping a fabric cuff around the arm and then slightly inflating it. Blood pressure changes frequently throughout the day. Posture, nicotine use, and level of exercise are a few of the things that can make it change within a few minutes.
 
In addition, several things (such as lifestyle and family history) can affect a person's normal blood pressure range. Be mindful of this when comparing your reading to what's considered "normal."
