BP monitor readings must be taken atdifferent times of day, to determine AVERAGE bloodpressure levels over time.What is important is your AVERAGE BP, or MAP (MeanArterial Pressure) over time.Or, where are those numbers sitting MOST of thetime?Normal MAP is about 93 mm of mercury.</p><p>For the scientists among you: The pressure of 1 mmof mercury = 0.019337 P.S.I.

BP Levels Table Notes(for table directly above)</p></li><li><p>1/22/2014 Blood Pressure Chart - Normal Blood Pressure Range</p><p> 8/13</p><p>1. Why did I do this? I searched high and low on theInternet, and I could find nothing like this in one place - a</p><p>Summary of human BP range, the Averages, and theComments relating to each BP level.</p><p>2. How did I get the numbers? I started with thecommonly seen "Systolic/ Diastolic pairs" seen in theliterature - 200/120, 160/100, 140/90, 120/80 and</p><p>90/60. From there, I interpolated and extrapolated all theother numbers. Note that these are AVERAGErelationships. For instance, instead of 140/90, your BPmay be 140/100, or 140/80. Each individual will have aunique systolic-diastolic relationship. If your S/Ddifference varies significantly from the averages shown</p><p>above, this can be helpful in assessing your particularcardiovascular condition.</p><p>3. Fairly recently, the difference between Systolic and</p><p>Diastolic pressure, named "Pulse Pressure", has been</p><p>gaining interest in the research community. This PulsePressure has been found to correlate linearly with heart</p><p>attack risk - the higher the number, the higher the risk.According to this theory, a BP of 140/ 90 (PP=50) is</p><p>more desirable than a BP of 140/ 80 (PP=60).This PP relationship at each pressure appears to be</p><p>almost linear.</p><p>4. As for the comments, I have "averaged" the references</p><p>made in the literature, since not all doctors agree upon thepressures at which to treat, and how aggressively to treat</p><p>(multiple medications, type of meds, etc.). You can rest</p><p>assured that the pharmaceutical companies prefer that youtake medication at 135/80, since they sell the meds. Most</p><p>doctors are not so aggressive. Remember that ALL</p></li><li><p>1/22/2014 Blood Pressure Chart - Normal Blood Pressure Range</p><p> 9/13</p><p>medications have side effects. Heart medications have</p><p>more serious side effects than any other class of</p><p>prescription drugs.</p><p>5. Be aware of the "Circadian Rhythm" cycle. YourBlood Pressure is highly influenced by the time of day.</p><p>For normal people, the highest BP occurs about midday,and the lowest at about 3-4 AM in the morning. For some</p><p>people, described as "non-dippers", this early morning BP</p><p>dip does not occur. For these people, highest bloodpressure usually occurs around 6 AM to 9 AM in the</p><p>morning. Some doctors are not aware of this, and makeerroneous assumptions. A non-dipper may see 150/95 in</p><p>the morning, and 130/85 in the evening. Non-dipping isusually associated with abnormal sleep conditions, such as</p><p>sleep apnea, heavy snoring, drug and alcohol abuse, etc.</p><p>6. One blood pressure reading means very little. The</p><p>advice to "Have your blood pressure checked once ayear" is useless. What time of day? Had you eaten less</p><p>salty foods recently? Were you relaxed that day, when</p><p>you are usually much more stressed? Had you recentlyexercised vigorously? You must check your BP far more</p><p>often than once a year, especially if you show "borderline"readings. I can produce a very low, or very high blood</p><p>pressure AT WILL, based upon what I do during the 24hours prior to the measurement.</p><p>7. Beware of "white coat syndrome", which results in amuch higher BP reading than normal, due to the</p><p>authoritative doctor, the foreboding, sterile exam room,and the smells such as alcohol and disinfectant. All this is</p><p>not relaxing. Some unaware doctors may prescribemedication, when in fact, you don't need it at all. As soon</p></li><li><p>1/22/2014 Blood Pressure Chart - Normal Blood Pressure Range</p><p> 10/13</p><p>as you leave the office, your BP returns to normal. This is</p><p>another great reason to use your own automatic BP wristmonitor, so that you come to know your own body, and</p><p>the effects of stress, food, mood, sleep, and time of day.</p><p>8. MAP = Mean Arterial Pressure. Three formulas are</p><p>used to compute MAP. All three produce very similarresults.</p><p>Above, I used Method #1 -MAP = DP + (1/3 (SP - DP))</p><p>Ideal Mean Arterial Pressure is defined as 93 mm ofmercury, which corresponds to 120/80.</p><p>Alternative Method #2 -Also, MAP = (2/3 DP) + (1/3 SP)</p><p>Alternative Method #3</p><p>MAP = ((2*DP) + SP) / 3</p><p>where SP= Systolic Pressure,</p><p>and DP= Diastolic Pressure</p><p>top of page</p><p>5.

Here, I present</p><p>official government-blessed data.Other medical organizations have issued new numbers</p><p>recently. I believe that one must consider the source. Dothe members of the group have an interest in seeing</p><p>increased drug sales?

This page and large graphic have been online sinceOct. 2003, and updated hundreds of times over the last 9</p><p>years.</p><p>UPDATE - May 25, 2013 -Redrew the main BP graphic (rev.19).</p><p>Reformatted for your iPhone.</p><p>I also separated the suggested foods, vitamins andminerals from the chart format, and created a separate</p><p>table for them, so as to make them appear "less directlyrelated" to actual pressure - many factors are at play. The</p><p>chart is thus more focused toward pressure, and less</p><p>cluttered with extraneous, perhaps speculativeinformation.</p><p>top of page</p><p>Disclaimer</p></li><li><p>1/22/2014 Blood Pressure Chart - Normal Blood Pressure Range</p><p> 13/13</p><p>The author is not a doctor.
