Distolic Blood Pressure

Were you looking for information about Diastolic Blood Pressure? Distolic blood pressure is a common misspelling of diastolic blood pressure.
 
A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers that are written in the form of a fraction. The top number is the systolic blood pressure, which is the pressure in the blood vessels at the moment your heart beats. The bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure, which is the pressure in the blood vessels when your heart is resting (in between heartbeats). While many people consider a normal blood pressure reading to be 120/80, your blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day. However, if your blood pressure average is above or below normal levels for a long time, it can cause problems.
