When your pressure is132 youe heart rate is 75 and puls is 75 what tha mean


I am thinking what they meant to say was that your blood pressure is 132 over 75 and your pulse is 75. Blood pressure has two readings, a high and a low one. If this is the case, your blood pressure is fine and your heart rate (the number of times your heart beats per minute) is also fine!

My blood pressure is 110/95 and my heart rate is 124/bpm. I am pregnant what does that mean?


110/95 Blood Pressure
Is 110/95 Good Blood Pressure or High Blood Pressure?

There are two parts or two separate numbers referred to as blood pressure: Systolic/Diastolic. If the blood pressure is 110/95 (110 over 95), it means that the systolic pressure is 110 and the diastolic pressure is 95.

110/95 blood pressure can also be read as 110/95 mm Hg, or 110/95 millimeters of mercury. The 110 mm Hg Systolic refers to the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats, and the 95 mm Hg Diastolic is the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats.

When determining if 110/95 is a good blood pressure, we looked at the American Heart Association's blood pressure chart.

Blood Pressure Systolic Diastolic Normal Less than 120 Less than 80 Prehypertension 120 - 139 80 - 89 High Blood Pressure
(Hypertension) Stage 1 140 - 159 90 - 99 High Blood Pressure
(Hypertension) Stage 2 160 or higher 100 or higher Hypertensive Crisis
(Emergency care needed) Higher than 180 Higher than 110
For 110/95 to be good, both numbers must fit into the "normal" category above. Otherwise, it will fall into other categories of High Blood Pressure.

Systolic reading of 110 is in the Normal range.
Diastolic reading of 95 is in High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Stage 1 range.
Therefore, 110/95 is High Blood Pressure (Hypertension Stage 1).

I NEED AN OWNERS MANUAL FOR BA-616W ...GOT IT 2 YRS AGO AND ONLY HAVE THE INSTRUCTION SHEET ..BUT I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ THE NUMBERS AND WHAT THEY MEAN. PLEASE HELP


As a 30 year EMT, I think I can help you.

There's 2 numbers that make up your blood pressure. The top number is called the Systolic pressure. The bottom number is call the Diastolic pressure. When a blood pressure is taken, it's measuring the pressure that the heart is producing when it pumps blood through the arteries. For example, what's considered a normal blood pressure in a healthy individual is in the range of 120/80. Of course age, life style and other health conditions, play a role in what yours may be. A person with High blood pressure or Hypertension would have a blood pressure of over 160 - Systolic and over 90+ Diastolic. 90 is actually the borderline for hypertension. That's why I indicated 90+.

The other reading on your monitor is your heart rate or pulse rate. It's how many beats your heart completes in one minute. It also indicates an irregular heart beat by the showing a small LED window on the left of the screen adjacent to the Systolic pressure reading, It will say IHB. Any movement or shaking or talking during the measurement can result in pulse irregularities. So hold very still when taking your blood pressure. This irregularity by itself is not of much concern, unless it shows up frequently. In which case, you should seek medical advice.

That covers just about all there is to know about what the readings mean. Armed with this, you should be able to effectively monitor your blood pressure and pulse rate and report them to your doctor.

Hope I was able to help you understand how it works and what it's telling you. if so, please let me know, by rating my response to you. Thanks and have a healthy day.

I have a blood pressure sphygmomanometer, how do you take a blood pressure reading and what is normal?


Much easier to go to a store, like Walgreens and get an inexpensive ( like 15 dollars) automatic wrist cuff blood pressure monitor, that will give you accurate and quick readings of your heart rate, and blood pressure, systolic and diastolic, automatically.

How do you read a wrist tech monitor and what does the number mean?


The wrist monitor, much like ones in doctor's offices, reads your blood pressure and pulse rate.
The large numbers are your blood pressure reading. The Top number is the Systolic and the bottom number is the Diastolic. If you doctor or his nurse has taken your blood pressure and told you what it was, they said for example, 140 over 80, which on your chart would be listed as 140/80. The smaller number at the bottom of the screen is your pulse rate. Some monitors will indicate if the heart beat is regular or irregular. Depending on your age, general health and life style, a normal blood pressure would be in the range of (Systolic) 120 to 130 over (Diastolic) 70 to 80. But, your normal range may be different based on what I said above. Only your personal physician can tell you what yours is or should be.

When using a wrist monitor it must be properly placed on the wrist (1" above the heal of the hand). You must remain very still and try not to talk, until the monitor has completed cycling. Also, having your hand/wrist at heart level, helps to ontain a more accurate reading. Never take readings back to back. Wait at least 2 minutes in between sessions.

If this helped you, please be kind enough to let me know.

My husband took his blood pressure and an E appeared for Sys reading. We could not get it to operate correctly. Why?


E appeared because the monitor was not able to read his blood pressure. I have the same problem myself if I take my blood pressure after sitting down for a while because my pulse rate is 40 beats per minute and the monitor is set to expect a higher reading. If his pulse rate is too low the monitor thinks it's not reading it properly.

It could also be unable to read his blood pressure because the sensor was not pressed against his pulse. Try moving it around a little. Also it's a good idea to check the monitor on a second person as there could be a fault in the monitor itself.

I hope this helps.

When I took my blood preasure there's a heartbeat sign next to my pulse reading. What does that mean


It shows your heart is till beating and the LCD readout should tell you, your heart rate. Some monitors will also indicate if the heart beat is regular or irregular.
