What is normal systole range


A normal systolic blood pressure is 120 or below. A systolic blood pressure of 120-139 means you have normal blood pressure that is higher than ideal, or borderline high blood pressure.

What does a blood presure reading of 221/ 91 mean


It's pretty high on both ends. If they are both close though, it can not be a terribly bad story though. 120/80mmHg is typical normal values. Be sure cuff is at heart level and stationary when measuring. Systolic is crazy high.

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.

My Walgreens Digital Blood Pressure Monitor pumps up to diastolic 118-122 then stops and deflates and the screen reads Err 2. Can you please tell me what the problem might be? Thank you.


Your Blood Pressure may be to high for the reading. Try to adjust the cuff and restart. Are you sure it is diastolic reading and not systolic?

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.

Display is blank, batteries are new


Besides being pretty horribly inaccurate, the first THREE of these I bought failed in some manner. The Samsung I now have is still working but when compared during a office visit to manual and automatic BP meters, mine is reading ~ 20 mm LOW on both systolic and diastolic readings.

Systolic numbers do not form completely


Try changing the batteries if that doesn't work I would buy a new machine. If you have high blood pressure a lot of health care plans will buy you a monitor. Ask your health plan or doctor for more info.

Blood pressure monitor problem


The two numbers that measure your blood pressure are written like a fraction: one number on top and one on the bottom. The top number in a blood pressure reading refers to the systolic pressure. It measures the pressure inside your blood vessels at the moment your heart beats. The bottom number represents your diastolic pressure. It measures the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart is resting between heartbeats. A good blood pressure for most people will be under 120/80, as most people with blood pressure problems have high blood pressure. However, extreme low blood pressure can also be a serious health concern.
