Question about Health & Beauty

1 Answer

I do research studies [guinea pig] and have my blood pressure read. I DO NOT have high blood pressure and my readings are usually normal. At one facility, I consistently get a very high reading and we can't figure this out. It's not "white coat syndrom" because as I said, I screen elsewhere, with no problems. What do you think may be causing this?

It is likely they are using too small a cuff. This will give false high readings.

Readings between 120/80 and 139/89 usually indicate PRE-HYPERTENSION or HIGH NORMAL, indicating you don't have hypertension but your blood pressure is higher than what experts consider optimal for most adults. or in my case this is normal, not every one has the same blood pressure. im not a doctor but this should help you if you feel unwell please go see a doctor.

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.

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 can't find my user manual and I forgot what the 160, 200, and 240 represent.


Normally, the 160, 200 & 240 are the systolic (top) reading of the blood pressure. Again, that's under normal conditions. But, even so, the 200 & 240 are extremely high. The diastolic is the bottom reading. With a systolic reading of 200 or 240, the diastolic reading is usually very high too. In which case, it would indicate the person has hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), which can be a serious situation.

The nornal blood pressure for a healthy individual is 120 to 140 over 80 or less. Age, weight, smoker or nonsmoker and other health issues, can affect this normal reading one way or the other.

As an EMT for over 25 years, I would be concerned if I had a patient with a blood pressure reading of 200/120 (200 over 120). And even more so, if their blood pressure reading was 240/120 or higher.

If you have had or are having readings on the high side as I described, I would recommend that you consult your personal doctor as soon as possible.

The systolic pressure reads high in comparison to other monitors and physicians readings.


After working in the healthcare field for a while, I never trust automatic blood pressure cuffs or machines. They usually always give a high reading, I usually check with a manual reading after getting a high reading from a automatic reading.
