Blood Pressure Treatment
Blood pressure is a measurement of pressure in your arteries during the active and restive phases of each heartbeat. Normal blood pressure is identified at 120/80 Hg. The first number called the systolic pressure is the pressure the heart generates when pumping the blood to the rest of the body. And the second number called the diastolic pressure is the amount of pressure in the arteries when the heart is at rest.
Hypertension is a condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high. Pressure is defined as blood pressure above 140/9 Hg. It is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120 Hg. If untreated, it can lead to heart attack and stroke. It is associated with few or no symptoms.

- Nose bleeds
On the other hand, doctors consider chronically low blood pressure as too low if only it causes noticeable symptoms. Low blood pressure is defined as readings lower than 90/60 Hg. Only the lower number, diastolic pressure should be low in order to be classified as having low pressure than normal.
