What is blood pressure?

It is the term used to describe the circulating blood in the blood vessels of your body. To test the blood pressure of an individual, a small device is placed usually on the upper arm to measure the major artery in that arm.

What is the average?

The average blood pressure varies from person to person, and also from the time of day. The highest readings are usually in the afternoon and the lowest readings at night. Factors such as age and sex influence an individual’s blood pressure. Other factors which influence it include: Diet, exercise, disease, drugs, alcohol, stress and weight.

It is important to know what reading is normal for you so regular checks is vital for preventing illnesses associated with high or low blood pressure. If you are experiencing any or a combination of the above symptoms or have concerns or questions, here at Conefreys we provide private consultations with friendly and qualified staff.
