Should the setting be 240, 210, 180 or 150 on the blood pressure unit?

That depends on what Your blood pressure is reading. The only difference is the constriction that the pump puts on the cuff - higher numbers for higher blood pressures. If your reading is 172 over 74, set it for 180. Slightly higher than what your BP reads. You should be writing these readings down with date, time of day, and other information like activity level since the doctor will want to know more than what the meter says - you should note activity level such as just woke up, or took dog for walk, or doing housework - something that will indicate you were either active or sedentary prior to taking the reading will help your doctor determine how effective the prescribed treatment is for your condition. Don't worry too much about the numbers, accurate reporting to your doctor is the most important consideration.

What is the normal blood pressure for a 74 year old

120/80 is a good starting point, but there are so many factors you did not tell us! your general health, weight, how tall you are, how active these all play a big part in what your blood pressure range should be. I would ask your doctor or pharmacist to take your blood pressure and guide you from there. hope this helps!

I am 74 years old my blood pressure is 113/52 is this good or bad

120/80 is normal for someone of your age, though the risk of heart disease can begin to increase once blood pressure reaches levels of 115/75. A systolic pressure range of 120 to 139 and a diastolic pressure range of 80 to 89. Just go to a doctor for a checkup. I hope you are safe :)

My blood pressure is 142 over 80 I'm 71 year old female is that normal my doctor didn't seem concerned

That is ok, but high normal. And age has no bearing on blood pressure, what is high for 12 year old is high for an 80 year old. Are you carrying extra pounds? If so loose them and lower the risk of a heart attack by lowering the blood pressure reading. You can read more at

Hi my son is 29 and has a blood pressure of 138 over 71 is this normal

138 is a bit high. Get him to a doctor.

Quick Answer

To read a blood pressure chart by age, locate your age range, then view the corresponding normal systolic and diastolic numbers, notes Disabled World. The chart offered by Disabled World features average blood pressure readings for 14 different age ranges. For adults between the ages of 25 and 29, a normal blood pressure reading is 120/80 millimeters of mercury. Average blood pressure increases with age.

What is a normal blood pressure for a 72 year old male

talk with your doctor as blood pressure readings vary between patients, weights , age and health conditions
always have your blood pressure done by the doctor as that will give a record of any variations that could be harmful
at this point it seems slightly high but the bigger concern is the diabetes and what ever the heart condition is
again consult with your doctor and get a proper diagnosis

Blood pressure is 120/49

I am sure this is a concerning matter. every patient is different, it would be best that a qulified doctor checks the man to ensure he is ok, as well as blood pressure, blood condition and other details would need to be taken. phone a doctor, health center or hospital for best advice.
