Human Blood Pressure Range Diagram
The
1st Number:Systolic pressure
is the pressure generated when the heart
contracts.
The
2nd Number:Diastolic pressure
is the blood pressure when the heart is
relaxed.
What is
Normal Blood Pressure
? Buy and use an
automatic blood pressure monitor 
. Compareyour BP reading with the numbers on the chart above. Draw a line from your systolic pressure toyour diastolic pressure. Is the slope of the line about the same as shown on the chart?
 
Where doYOU fit in? What are your risk factors?Are your blood pressure readings within the normal blood pressure range?Should you take anti-hypertension medication to lower your blood pressure?Normal human daily Blood Pressure Range can vary widely, so any single blood pressure monitorreading is not reliable. BP monitor readings must be taken at different times of day, to determineAVERAGE blood pressure levels over time.What is important is your AVERAGE BP, or MAP (Mean Arterial Pressure) over time.

Or, where are those numbers sitting MOST of the time?Normal MAP is about 93 mm of mercury.Lowering High Blood Pressure TacticsDownload a 1-page printable .PDF file of theBlood Pressure Chartabove.For the scientists among you: The pressure of 1mm of mercury = 0.019337 PSI. A systolic bloodpressure of 2 PSI is good, a systolic blood pressure of 3 PSI is not good.

Notes for the above BP table :
1. Why did I do this?
I searched high and low on the Internet, and I could find nothing likethis in one place - a Summary of human BP range, the Averages, and the Comments relatingto each BP level.
2. How did I get the numbers?
I started with the commonly seen "Systolic/ Diastolic pairs"seen in the literature - 200/120, 160/100, 140/90, 120/80 and 90/60. From there, Iinterpolated and extrapolated all the other numbers. Note that these are AVERAGErelationships. For instance, instead of 140/90, your BP may be 140/100, or 140/80. Eachindividual will have a unique systolic-diastolic relationship. If your S/D difference variessignificantly from the averages shown above, this can be helpful in assessing your particularcardiovascular condition.
3.
For comparison purposes, I added the
"delta" column
, which is the difference betweenthe Systolic and Diastolic pressure readings. This relationship is almost linear, with theexceptions of the 40 delta, the 30 delta, and the 15 delta.
4.
As for the
comments
, I have "averaged" the references made in the literature, since not alldoctors agree upon the pressures at which to treat, and how aggressively to treat (multiple
