Normal blood pressure is important for proper blood flow to the body’s organs and tissues. The force of the blood on the walls of the arteries is called blood pressure. Blood pressure is measured both as the heart contracts, which is called systole, and as it relaxes, which is called diastole. Normal blood pressure is considered to be a systolic blood pressure of 115 millimeters of mercury a diastolic pressure of 70 millimeters of mercury (stated as "115 over 70"). If an individual were to have a consistent blood pressure reading of 140 over 90, he would be evaluated for having high blood pressure. If left untreated, high blood pressure can damage important organs, such as the brain and kidneys, as well as lead to a stroke. High blood pressure is a common disease in which blood flows through blood vessels (arteries) at higher than normal pressures. Measuring Blood Pressure Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps blood. High blood pressure, sometimes called hypertension, happens when this force is too high. Health care workers check blood pressure readings the same way for children, teens, and adults. They use a gauge, stethoscope or electronic sensor, and a blood pressure cuff. With this equipment, they measure: Systolic Pressure: blood pressure when the heart beats while pumping blood Diastolic Pressure: blood pressure when the heart is at rest between beats Health care workers write blood pressure numbers with the systolic number above the diastolic number. For example: 118/76 mmHg People read "118 over 76" millimeters of mercury. Normal Blood Pressure: Normal blood pressure for adults is defined as a systolic pressure below 120 mmHg and a diastolic pressure below 80 mmHg. It is normal for blood pressures to change when you sleep, wake up, or are excited or nervous. When you are active, it is normal for your blood pressure to increase. However, once the activity stops, your blood pressure returns to your normal baseline range. Blood pressure normally rises with age and body size. Newborn babies often have very low blood pressure numbers that are considered normal for babies, while older teens have numbers similar to adults. Abnormal Blood Pressure Abnormal increases in blood pressure are defined as having blood pressures higher than 120/80 mmHg. The following table outlines and defines high blood pressure severity levels. The ranges in the table are blood pressure guides for adults who do not have any short-term serious illnesses. People with diabetes or chronic kidney disease should keep their blood pressure below 130/80 mmHg. Although blood pressure increases seen in prehypertension are less than those used to diagnose high blood pressure, prehypertension can progress to high blood pressure and should be taken seriously. Over time, consistently high blood pressure weakens and damages your blood vessels, which can lead to complications. Types of High Blood Pressure There are two main types of high blood pressure: primary and secondary high blood pressure. Primary High Blood Pressure Primary, or essential, high blood pressure is the most common type of high blood pressure. This type of high blood pressure tends to develop over years as a person ages. Secondary High Blood Pressure Secondary high blood pressure is caused by another medical condition or use of certain medicines. This type usually resolves after the cause is treated or removed. Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels. When used without further specification, "blood pressure" usually refers to the arterial pressure in the systemic circulation. It is usually measured at a person's upper arm. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic (maximum) pressure over diastolic (minimum) pressure and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). It is one of the vital signs along with respiratory rate, heart rate, oxygen saturation, and body temperature. Normal resting blood pressure in an adult is approximately 120/80 mm Hg. Blood pressure varies depending on situation, activity, and disease states. It is regulated by the nervous and endocrine systems. Blood pressure that is low due to a disease state is called hypotension, and pressure that is consistently high is hypertension. Both have many causes which can range from mild to severe. Both may be of sudden onset or of long duration. Long term hypertension is a risk factor for many diseases, including kidney failure, heart disease, and stroke. Long term hypertension is more common than long term hypotension in Western countries. Long term hypertension often goes undetected because of infrequent monitoring and the absence of symptoms. Physiology: During each heartbeat, blood pressure varies between a maximum (systolic) and a minimum (diastolic) pressure. Q. What blood pressure should I have? What is normal blood pressure?

The next time you get your blood pressure checked, you might want it taken on both arms. Mercy Medical Center Dr. Tim Doyle said he now routinely checks patients' blood pressure on both arms. Researchers have found that for people over the age of 40 the difference between the two top numbers can predict your risk for heart and vascular disease.

Learn to Measure Blood Pressure and Pulse - Medical Videos Step-by-Step Blood Pressure Check If you purchase a manual or digital blood pressure monitor (sphygmomanometer), follow the instruction booklet carefully. The following steps provide an overview of how to take your left arm blood pressure on either a manual or digital blood pressure monitor. Simply reverse the sides to take a blood pressure in your right arm. 1. Locate your pulse Locate your pulse by lightly pressing your index and middle fingers slightly to the inside center of the bend of your elbow (where the brachial artery is). If you cannot locate your pulse, place the head of the stethoscope (on a manual monitor) or the arm cuff (on a digital monitor) in the same general area.2. Secure the cuff Thread the cuff end through the metal loop and slide the cuff onto your arm, making sure that the stethoscope head is over the artery (when using a manual monitor.) The cuff may be marked with an arrow to show the location of the stethoscope head. The lower edge of the cuff should be about 1 inch above the bend of your elbow. Use the fabric fastener to make the cuff snug, but not too tight. Place the stethoscope in your ears. Tilt the ear pieces slightly forward to get the best sound. 3. Inflate and deflate the cuff If you are using a manual monitor: Hold the pressure gauge in your left hand and the bulb in your right. Close the airflow valve on the bulb by turning the screw clockwise. Inflate the cuff by squeezing the bulb with your right hand. You may hear your pulse in the stethoscope. Watch the gauge. Keep inflating the cuff until the gauge reads about 30 points (mm Hg) above your expected systolic pressure. At this point, you should not hear your pulse in the stethoscope. Keeping your eyes on the gauge, slowly release the pressure in the cuff by opening the airflow valve counterclockwise. The gauge should fall only 2 to 3 points with each heartbeat. (You may need to practice turning the valve slowly.) Listen carefully for the first pulse beat. As soon as you hear it, note the reading on the gauge. This reading is your systolic pressure (the force of the blood against the artery walls as your heart beats). Continue to slowly deflate the cuff. Listen carefully until the sound disappears. As soon as you can no longer hear your pulse, note the reading on the gauge. This reading is your diastolic pressure (the blood pressure between heartbeats). Allow the cuff to completely deflate.

Discover the REAL CAUSE of High Blood Pressure & 5 Best Foods for Lowering It Naturally: ►►http://drsam.co/yt/RealHBPCause ======================================= 5 Surprising Blood Pressure Facts Everyone Should Know ======================================= Most people know that having high blood pressure isn’t good and they should have it checked regularly, especially if you have a family history of heart disease, heart attacks or strokes. And I bring this up because this is something my family and I have to deal with. However, beyond the basics, there’s a lot of incorrect information about the causes of hypertension, including blood pressure mistakes your own doctor makes. So today I’ll quickly share 5 of these surprising blood pressure facts with you. 1 -- Too LITTLE salt can be a cause of high blood pressure. Most people know that too much salt is bad, but too little can cause problems as well -- especially if you have congestive heart failure. Your body is made up of salt water (saline) and so is most of the planet. Thus, salt is natural and has many benefits. It helps regulate many functions in your body, especially with your muscles (your heart being one of them). For some people, restricting your salt intake to less than 2000 mgs daily can raise your blood pressure. What you want to do is eliminate or reduce the white table salt and hidden salts found in snack and processed foods, soups, pickles, etc. If you want to have salt, have natural salts such as Celtic and Himalayan because they contain minerals that help balance the sodium (magnesium, calcium potassium, etc.). 2 -- Potassium balances sodium. Speaking of minerals, eating foods high in potassium is good because it balances your sodium intake. Potassium also helps relax your arterial walls and keeps blood pressure in a healthy range. Foods such as baked potatoes, coconut water, bananas, squash and eggplants are high in potassium. However, if you don’t like eating these foods, simply taking potassium pills will help - it’s easy and convenient. 3 -- Many doctors and nurses take inaccurate blood pressure measurements. I remember once a nurse took my blood pressure reading while she was talking to me and I was speaking back to her. My blood pressure reading was still healthy, but NOT accurate. When taking your blood pressure, you should be relaxed and not talking. Sit up straight in the chair with a back support. With both your feet planted on the floor. Additionally, your blood pressure can vary from your by your right or left arm. So it’s best to test both arms for an accurate reading. 4 -- Low blood pressure isn’t a problem, unless you have symptoms. Unless you’re experiencing lightheadedness, dizziness or fatigue, having low blood pressure is fine. However, having HIGH blood pressure without symptoms is NOT fine! That’s why hypertension is called the “silent killer” because many times you don’t “feel” anything negative, but there’s a lot of strain on your body. 5 -- Exercise can increase your blood pressure. Exercise is great and for most of us it helps regulate and normalize your blood pressure. It’s a great stress reliever. However, if you just jump right into your workout without some warming up, your blood pressure may shoot up. Or lifting heavy weights, pushing and straining, can also cause a spike in your blood pressure. You should always be doing a combination of cardio and weights for total health. Just make sure you warm-up and also cool-down at the end of your workout.

Support us on Patreon and get FREE downloads and other great rewards: patreon.com/AlilaMedicalMedia CARDIAC OUTPUT is the amount of blood pumped by each ventricle in one minute. It is the product of STROKE VOLUME – the amount of blood pumped in one heartbeat, and HEART RATE – the number of beats in one minute. An INcrease in either stroke volume or heart rate results in INcreased cardiac output, and vice versa. For example, during physical exercises, the heart beats faster to put out more blood in response to higher demand of the body. It is noteworthy that the ventricles do NOT eject ALL the blood they contain in one beat. In a typical example, a ventricle is filled with about 100ml of blood at the end of its load, but only 60ml is ejected during contraction. This corresponds to an EJECTION fraction of 60%. The 100ml is the end-DIASTOLIC volume, or EDV. The 40ml that remains in the ventricle after contraction is the end-SYSTOLIC volume, or ESV. The stroke volume equals EDV minus ESV, and is dependent on 3 factors: contractility, preload, and afterload. Contractility refers to the force of the contraction of the heart muscle. The more forceful the contraction, the more blood it ejects. PRELOAD is RELATED to the end-diastolic volume. Preload, by definition, is the degree of STRETCH of cardiac myocytes at the end of ventricular filling, but since this parameter is not readily measurable in patients, EDV is used instead. This is because the stretch level of the wall of a ventricle INcreases as it’s filled with more and more blood; just like a balloon - the more air it contains, the more stretched it is. According to the Frank-Starling mechanism, the greater the stretch, the greater the force of contraction. In the balloon analogy, the more inflated the balloon, the more forceful it releases air when deflated. AFTERLOAD, on the other hand, is the RESISTANCE that the ventricle must overcome to eject blood. Afterload includes 2 major components: - Vascular pressure: The pressure in the left ventricle must be GREATER than the systemic pressure for the aortic valve to open. Similarly, the pressure in the right ventricle must exceed pulmonary pressure to open the pulmonary valve. In hypertension for example, higher vascular pressures make it more difficult for the valves to open, resulting in a REDUCED amount of ejected blood. - Damage to the valves, such as stenosis, also presents higher resistance and leads to lower blood output.

Quick overview of the Normal pressure values in Systemic and Pulmonary circulations for the Medical students studying the Cardiovascular Physiology. Disclaimer: According to "John B. West, Respiratory Physiology - The Essentials, 9th Edition, Page 37", the diastolic ventricular pressures are equal to zero. In the physiology of the human body, nothing can be equal to zero exactly. I believe, the pressure of zero mmHg during diastole in the ventricles is used for understanding the general idea of the Cardiovascular system pressures concept. Keep in mind, that the video tutorial represents the Normal Physiologic CV pressure values. In spite of that, I want all the future and current physicians, watching this video, to know: Diastolic pressure in the right and left ventricular pressures are not zero. In fact, during diastole, when the tricuspid and mitral valves are open, the end-diastolic pressure equalizes, so that the PCWP (pulmonary capillary wedge pressure) accurately reflects end-diastolic LV pressure as well. So, as long as there is no mitral valve stenosis, the diastolic pressures in the left atrium and the left ventricle should equalize during diastole. Diastole was once thought to be a passive process, just filling up the chamber. However, now we know that diastole is an active process, and there can be defects in diastolic relaxation, thus leading to diastolic heart failure (CHF with normal ejection fraction or systolic function). That is common in hypertensive patients, when the LV becomes "stiff" or has difficulty relaxing. It's common with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or certain other metabolic cardiomyopathies, such as amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, and hemochromatosis.

Apple Watch can detect hypertension and sleep apnea a study found. An app called Cardiogram implemented technology earlier this year to detect abnormal heart rhythm used to predict and prevent heart disease by tracking heart rate. Now new research has found the technology can detect other serious conditions such as sleep apnea with 90 percent accuracy and hypertension with 82 percent accuracy. Being able to detect these conditions through wearing a simple device that continuously screens the body’s heart rate will cut the time between doctors visits, tests and lead to a quicker diagnosis. The study was conducted using the Cardiogram app with more than 6,000 participants wearing the Apple Watch. The app tracked heart rate and step count in the subjects between one week and a year. It was able to detect sleep apnea in 1,016 of the participants and hypertension in 2,230 of the testers. Cardiogram and University of California San Francisco conducted the study using a deep learning algorithm called DeepHeart to detect the conditions with accuracy. ‘The idea here is that by screening continuously you would identify people with hypertension who might not know they have it,’ said Cardiogram’s co-founder and study lead Johnson Hsieh. He adds: ‘Then you’d guide them through the appropriate final diagnosis, which would be through a blood pressure cuff and then treatment.’ Right now most patients go to the doctor and wait to be tested for these conditions, adding a large time gap between symptoms and a diagnosis. In other cases, patients don’t even recognize symptoms until it becomes critical. By continuously tracking heart rate, the app can alert a patient of abnormalities leading to a swifter diagnosis and hopefully faster treatment and recovery. Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder largely associated with heavy snoring in which breathing repeatedly stops. It affects 22million adults in the US and if left untreated the oxygen deprivation from sleep apnea can result in a growing number of health problems, including high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure, diabetes and heart attacks. Another 75 million American adults have high blood pressure or hypertension, putting them at high risk for heart disease and stroke which are the top causes of death in the US. Hsieh believes this study shows promise for other wearable technology to incorporate a heart-rate sensors including FitBits.

You Think That 120/80 Is a Normal Blood Pressure? You Are Completely Wrong! A lot of people think that 120 over 80 indicates a normal blood pressure and if the blood pressure is higher or lower than this value, the person usually consult his/her physician. However, it appears that the value that has been considered a high blood pressure until now is no longer the case. Namely, according to the ESC Association there are new guidelines according to which a normal blood pressure is 140/90. However, this doesn't apply for diabetics and elder people in who the limit is 130 over 80. Previously, people thought that they have a high blood pressure when their blood pressure is 139/89 and start taking medications. Nonetheless, since this isn't the case anymore, you shouldn't be afraid if your blood pressure has the abovementioned values because it doesn't increase your risk of stroke or heart attack. Low blood pressure is when the systolic blood pressure is less than 90 mmHg or when the diastolic one is less than 60 mmHg. If you have an extremely low blood pressure, that is, less than 80/50 mmHg or if you experience a sudden drop in blood pressure, you need to consult your physician for further tests and treatment. When undiagnosed and left untreated for a longer period of time, both high and low blood pressure can lead to numerous other health problems. Therefore, consult a doctor as soon as possible in order to establish the main reason for your blood pressure problems and then address them adequately and avoid more serious health consequences.

Your Blood Pressure According To Your Age Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11 It is extremely important to regulate the blood pressure, as it can be a real life threat, and damage various vital body functions. In the case of older people, if left untreated, high blood pressure may cause various severe consequences. However, a study conducted on more than 2, 000 seniors, and published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found some interesting facts. Blood pressure affects the function of the kidneys, arteries, and the entire body. If not regulated on time, it causes great damage to the arteries, and the other body organs, leading to heart attack, kidney failure, heart failure, and numerous other health problems. This is the reason why numerous doctors decide to treat hypertension with an aggressive approach in order to lower high blood pressure. Yet, we will dedicate our time today on recommending how t control blood pressure, as the methods should not be the same in the fifth and the eighth decade of life, for example, as it would be adequate. In general, health providers tend to chart the changes in blood pressure and start following their results since they are 20. The AHA (American Heart Association) asks youngsters to regularly screen their blood pressure at their healthcare visit. This happens once in a few years and applies to people whose blood pressure is less than 120/80 mm Hg. Yet, blood pressure rises with heart beats and falls down between the beats. It is also affected by stress, sleep, posture, and physical activity. Yet, despite all these changes, the blood pressure should be lower than 120/80 mm Hg (which is less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic). Sadly, 1 in 3 American adults suffers from high blood pressure. In this case, doctors read the blood pressure over time, or may advise a monitoring at home, before they diagnose high blood pressure. This is due to the fact that it does not mean that you have a high blood pressure just because you have a single high reading. Yet, if it is the case, and your readings remain to show values of 140/90 mm Hg or above (systolic 140 or above OR diastolic 90 or above) over time, you will be advised to start treating the issue, and almost all therapies include lifestyle changes, prescription drugs, and diets. To be sure your results are correct, if the systolic value is 180 mm Hg or higher and your diastolic value is 110 mm Hg or higher when monitoring, you should repeat the procedure after several minutes. If the second results are the same, you should seek medical help. Finally, even if your blood pressure is normal, regarding its importance for your overall heath, you should control it and maintain its normal values, in order to support your heart health. This may include healthy lifestyle habits and dietary changes. ================================= blood pressure, high blood pressure, blood pressure chart, normal blood pressure, hypertension, low blood pressure, high blood pressure symptoms, how to lower blood pressure, blood pressure range, blood pressure monitor, what is normal blood pressure, what is high blood pressure, high blood pressure diet, blood pressure medication, causes of high blood pressure, high blood pressure chart, symptoms of high blood pressure, normal blood pressure range, low blood pressure symptoms Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Heart failures can be due to an inability to PUMP effectively during systole - SYSTOLIC heart failure, or inability to FILL properly during diastole - DIASTOLIC heart failure. Heart failure can be right-sided or left-sided . In systolic heart failure, ventricular contraction is compromised. This may be caused by any condition that weakens the heart muscle: - Coronary artery disease/Ischemic HD: - Dilated cardiomyopathy - Hypertension: - Valvular heart disease: Damage to the valves, such as stenosis The effectiveness of ventricular contraction is measured by the EJECTION fraction. The normal range of the ejection fraction is between 50 and 70%. In systolic heart failure, it drops below 40%. In DIASTOLIC heart failure, the ventricle is filled with LESS blood. This may be because it is smaller than usual, or it has lost the ability to relax. The ejection fraction may be normal, but the blood output is reduced. The ejection fraction is therefore commonly used to differentiate between SYSTOLIC and DIASTOLIC dysfunction. Examples of conditions that can lead to diastolic heart failure include: - Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - Restrictive cardiomyopathy: - Hypertension Regardless of being systolic or diastolic in nature, left-sided heart failures share a common outcome: LESS blood pumped out from the heart. As a result, blood flows back to the lungs, where it came from, causing CONGESTION and INCREASED pulmonary pressure. As this happens, fluid leaks from the blood vessels into the lung tissue, resulting in PULMONARY EDEMA, a hallmark of left-sided heart failure. Accumulation of fluid in the alveoli IMPEDES the gas exchange process, resulting in respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath, which worsens when lying down, and chest crackles. RIGHT-sided heart failure is most commonly caused by LEFT-sided heart failure. This is because the INCREASED pulmonary pressure caused by left-sided heart failure makes it harder for the right ventricle to pump INTO the pulmonary artery. This results in SYSTOLIC dysfunction. In compensation, the right ventricle grows thicker to pump harder, which reduces the space available for filling, eventually leading to DIASTOLIC dysfunction. Other common causes of right-sided heart failure include chronic lung diseases which also raise pulmonary blood pressure. As the right ventricle pumps out less blood, the blood, again, backs up to where it came from, and in this case, the SYSTEMIC circulation. This results in abnormal fluid accumulation in various organs, most notable in the feet when standing, sacral area when lying down, abdominal cavity and liver. The fluid status can be assessed by examining the distension level of the jugular vein. Heart failure is usually managed by treating the underlying condition, together with a combination of drugs. ACE inhibitors, beta blockers are used to reduce blood pressure in patients with systolic dysfunction. Diuretics are used to reduce water retention.

Blood pressure is the force the circulating blood EXERTS on the walls of blood vessels. It is different in different types of vessels, but the term ”blood pressure”, when not specified otherwise, refers to ARTERIAL pressure in the SYSTEMIC circulation. When the heart contracts and pumps blood into the aorta, during systole, the aortic pressure RISES, and so does the systemic arterial pressure. The maximum pressure following an ejection is called the SYSTOLIC pressure. In between heart beats, when the ventricles refill, blood pressure FALLS to its lowest value called the DIASTOLIC pressure. THESE are the 2 numbers on a blood pressure reading. Blood pressure normally shows a daily pattern and is usually lower at night. During day-time, it fluctuates with physical activities and emotional states. Hypertension refers to a PERSISTENT HIGH blood pressure. In the US, high blood pressure used to be defined as greater than 140/90, but recent guidelines have changed these values to 130/80 to better prevent and treat the condition. Normal blood pressure is BELOW 120/80. In practice, blood pressure is considered TOO low ONLY if it produces symptoms. Hypertension does NOT cause symptoms on its own, but it slowly DAMAGES blood vessels, and in the long-term, is a MAJOR risk factor for a variety of cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, aneurysm and heart attack; as well as end organ damage such as renal failure or vision loss. For this reason, hypertension is known as the “SILENT killer”. Hypertension can be classified as primary or secondary, with the former being responsible for over 90% of cases. Primary hypertension has NO apparent cause and may develop as a result of old age, obesity, high-salt diet, lack of exercise, smoking and drinking. Most commonly, the blood vessels are hardened with age or unhealthy diets, making it harder for blood to flow. Secondary hypertension, on the other hand, is caused by an underlying condition. Many conditions and factors can cause hypertension; most notable are kidney problems and endocrine disturbances. Regardless of the cause, the INcrease in blood pressure is produced by EITHER an INcrease in vascular resistance - narrower or stiffer blood vessels; OR an INcrease in cardiac output – larger volume of blood pumped out by the heart. These 2 factors are the targets of antihypertensive drugs. Treatments must start with life style changes such as healthy, low-sodium diets, physical exercise and stress management. On top of that, antihypertensive agents may be used to control hypertension. These include: - Vasodilators: these drugs DILATE blood vessels, thereby DEcreasing vascular resistance and reducing blood pressure. - Diuretics: diuretics promote sodium and water removal by the kidneys and thereby DEcrease blood volume. - Drugs that DEcrease cardiac output by decreasing heart rate or contractility, may also be used to treat hypertension.

The best way to assess your blood pressure is to take multiple home readings. This is more accurate than taking blood pressures in the doctor's office because of the "white coat syndrome." Many people are treated for high blood pressure and don't have it a all! Overtreatment leads to complications from medications as well as hypotension (low BP). It is also a good idea to titrate BP medicines to home values on a daily basis. We also know that if there is more than a 10 mm of Hg difference in BP between the left and right arm, the risk for a complication of high BP goes up dramatically. BPs should be measured at least one time in both arms simultaneously. For more information please visit www.doctorsaputo.com

How To Fight High Blood Pressure And Heart Disease Without Deadly Medications The risk of hypertension can be affected by a wide range of risk factors, from smoking, stress, and overeating to excessive drinking and lack of physical activity. All of these factors impact people in a different manner, meaning that there isn’t any exact way to set the limits on what is too much. This is the reason why maintaining a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle is quite challenging, requiring elimination of the bad stuff and introducing more of right things in your daily routine. If you strive towards regulating your blood pressure levels, making certain lifestyle modifications is a must. High blood pressure levels make it much more difficult for the blood to get pumped through the body, which in turn increases the risk of disease by putting stress on the heart. Complications of hypertension are quite severe, including eye damage, stroke, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, and kidney disease. 4 Herbal Remedies that Help Lower Blood Pressure The good news is that there are a few herbs which can go a long way in regulating and lowering blood pressure levels in an all-natural way. 1. Oregano Oregano is highly accessible and quite popular these days. Its carvacrol content is known to lower blood pressure naturally, relaxing the heart rate and making it much easier to pump blood through the body. Interestingly, oregano works as healthier alterative to salt, which makes it a solid flavoring agent. This is very important given that excessive salt intake is known to increase blood pressure. Unfortunately, the standard American diet is loaded with sodium and deficient in nutrients. Oregano helps combat this problem by filling you up with its blood pressure regulating properties and robust nutritional profile. 2. Valerian Valerian has tranquilizing properties which help lower stress levels and help you relax. Consequently, its properties lower blood pressure levels, too. Note that stress is one of the critical risk factors for hypertension, so finding a way to deal with it helps keep the heart healthy. 3. Lavender Adding a few drops of lavender oil to a bath is one of the best and easiest ways to relax. Given that it expands the blood vessels, it also promotes easier blood flow and mental stress reduction. Its aromatic properties make it one of the best calming options on this list. It has been scientifically shown that it can help lower blood pressure levels by staggering 50 percent. 4. Passionflower Passionflower is typically used to promote sleep and is highly beneficial for those with high levels of anxiety or stress. Multiple clinical trials involving patients with generalized anxiety disorders have shown that it can be successfully used to alleviate drug withdrawal symptoms. Note: Although these herbs are a good and healthy way to maintain healthy systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels, they are not the only way! Staying hydrated, managing stress, following a healthy diet, and eliminating unhealthy habits are all good ways to improve the overall health. https://youtu.be/W1KTTG3PDNg

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Interpreting Central Venous Pressure Waveforms, by Dr. James DiNardo. Hi. My name is Jim DiNardo. I'm a Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School and one of the Cardiac ICU attendings here at Children's Hospital Boston. I'm going to talk now about our central venous pressure trace and the kind of information that we can get from a central venous pressure trace, and also about how a central venous pressure trace is generated and what implications that has. So again, it's important to remember that when we're measuring a CVP, we are in fact measuring a pressure in the central circulation, so in the superior vena cava or in the right atrium, depending on where the tip of the catheter is. But in fact, what's happening is this pressure is a consequence physiologically of volume changes in the superior vena cava or the right atrium in the setting of the compliance of those two systems. What we see here when we look at a CVP trace, we see a volume moving in and out of the right atrium or the superior vena cava being represented as a pressure here. This pressure -- we're going to talk about this trace as one bead of the central venous pressure. You can see that there's a couple of waves here. So this first wave on the upstroke here is known as the A wave. And you can see that is actually occurring - we can see with the simultaneous A line trace - as a late event in diastole. So here is end diastole in the arterial blood pressure traced right before the onset of systole. And if we look up here at the EKG, that same interval corresponds with the atrial contraction of the EKG. So this is an end diastolic event. And what this represents-- this is the pressure generated in the right atrium or the superior vena cava when the atrium contracts in a late diastole. And that is the pressure that's generated. And that pressure is a consequence of the volume of blood that's moving into the atrium and the compliance of the atrium. So you can imagine a circumstance where, if you have a very compliant right atrium, even if you have a lot of volume moving in with the atrial contraction, the A wave is not going to be very big. By the same token, if I have a very non-compliant right atrium, a very young patient, and I have a lot of volume moving - and let's say they've been given a big volume infusion - and I have a very forceful atrial contraction, I'm going to see a big A wave here. The next part of this CVP waveform is a C wave. You can see with a simultaneous A line trace that the C wave of occurs during the onset of ventricular systole. And if we look up here at the EKG, that same time interval corresponds to the R wave. What the C wave represents is bowing of the tricuspid valve back into the right atrium during systole such that there is a transient decrease in the atrial compliance and an increase in atrial pressure. During tachycardia, the C wave commonly becomes merged with the A wave. And under those circumstances, it's almost impossible to differentiate the A and the C waves. This little down slope is known as the x descent. And the x descent actually represents-- we're going to be talking about systole now here. See, now we're under the systolic portion of the arterial line trace and we're into the QRS of the EKG. And it also represents a combination of factors. It represents the atrium relaxing. And as a consequence of that, the tricuspid valve apparatus is descending towards the apex of the ventricle. And that, in turn, results in the formation of this x descent. Now, the next thing we see here is the V wave. And every human being that has a CVP line in has a V wave. The V wave is a late systolic event. You can see with the simultaneous A line trace that the V wave is occurring during late systole. And again, if we look up here at the EKG, this interval corresponds to the T wave of the EKG.

Learning how to lower blood pressure quickly and naturally comes very handy, especially in times when medicines are hardly accessible. (Important : I don't own the background music) High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the most common diseases among adults. Studies show that out of every three adults around the world there is one who suffers from high blood pressure.

If you are suffering from high blood pressure, these factors can increase your blood pressure: 1. Salt intake rates (more than 6 grams per day), sodium in salt causes high blood pressure. 2. Drinking Too Much Caffeine 3. Obesity can hinder the capacity of the heart to pump blood to the organs, which increases the blood pressure. 4. Lack of exercise, especially aerobic exercises such as walking, swimming, and cycling. 5. Anxiety and stress 6. Smoking. 7. high-fat diet, especially saturated fat, eating fast food Garlic may be the best treatment for high blood pressure, according to studies, garlic help to reduce blood pressure, cholesterol, and strengthen the heart.

Hypertension | What is considered high blood pressure? https://youtu.be/F39QQgSRhyY Blood pressure readings have two numbers. The top reading is your systolic number, which is the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart contracts. The bottom reading is your diastolic number, which measures pressure in your arteries when your heart relaxes between beats. The two numbers together will show whether your blood pressure is healthy or unhealthy. A high systolic (140 and over) or diastolic (90 and over) can count as high blood pressure. But the numbers may also be different for adults, children, and pregnant women. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hypertension | 13 Foods That Are Good for High Blood Pressure! https://youtu.be/_AQkIHQE6cs Meditation Impromptu 03 by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100161 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ ★ Welcome to my Channel: Healthy Eating★ ► Google+ : https://goo.gl/6WsWzy ► Subscribe my channel to watch more video: https://goo.gl/a0XZpM ★★★ Thanks for watching!

This video is about Making sense of your echo report Lets go through the information that the report will contain - When you have an echo you will also have a single lead ECG done at the same time and this is to allow the tallying of mechanical activity with electrical activity so usually the first thing on the echo report will be some mention of the heart rhythm and rate on the ECG during the scan. Next: The left atrium: this structure is the left atrium and what we have started realising is that the left atrium gives you great insight into your overall heart health. Healthy hearts usually have normal sized left atria. What is normal? About 4 cm across. What does it mean if the left atrium is enlarged…usually it means that the heart is having to work harder than it needs to. Also patients who have AF will have larger left atria.Is it dangerous - no not at all but it does mean that you just need to work out why the heart is working harder and manage accordingly. The next structure is the Mitral valve. This is this valve here. Now most normal valves are described as being thin and mobile. if the valve is described as being thickened, calcified and restricted then that tells you the valve is structurally abnormal. Either it has been subjected to wear and tear from old age or it has been damaged due to an infection such as rheumatic fever. Functionally valves can still be normal or they can be thickened to the point that they are narrowed and impede blood from passing through in which case they are described as being stenosed or stenosis. The left ventricle. This is the most important chamber of the heart because it is responsible for pumping blood to the whole of the body and patients who have a weak left ventricle have a much worse prognosis than patients who dont. So the echo will firstly comment on the size of the left ventricle. Normal size is dependant on body surface area but in general you want the left ventricle at its widest to be no more than 5.5 cm in women and 6 cm across in men. if the ventricle looks bigger than that then you worry that it is being stretched either because of a leaky valve or because it was damaged in some way. The problem is the more it stretches the more likely it is to lose its stretchability in the long run and therefore it can weaken. So there will be some comment on the echo report on the size of the ventricle. As long as it is not dilated you can feel very comfortable and reassured. The second thing is a mention of something called regional wall motion abnormality. Different parts of the left ventricle receive blood from different blood vessels and therefore if a patient has had a heart attack because one of the blood vessels has blocked, then that part of heart muscle will die and therefore not contract normally whereas the other normal parts will and this is described as a regional wall motion abnormality. So if you have no regional wall motion abnormality then you dont have any substantial damage or scar in your heart. There will also be a mention of function of the heart… how much blood does it pump to with every beat and this is called the ejection fraction. This is a very crude indicator which is usually visually assessed and the normal value is about 60%. if the heart is not pumping out as much blood as you would expect, it is described as left ventricular impairment. Mild left ventricular impairment is if the ejection fraction is 45-55%, moderate is 35-45% and severe is less than 35%. Now many people get very worried because they may have had 2 echo and they say well last time it was described as 62% and now it is 58% - does this mean that it has gotten worse and the answer is definitely not… the ejection fraction is a very crude measure and variations of 5-10% are completely acceptable. Finally there will be a mention of the thickness of the walls of the feft ventricle. These should usually be no more than 12mm thick and if they are thicker than that it means that either the heart is working harder than it should (high blood pressure) or there is some form of muscle disease which has caused the heart muscle to be thicker than you’d expect and thickened walls are described as left ventricular hypertrophy. if one wall is thickened it is described as asymmetrical and if all walls are thicked it is described as concentric or symmetrical

https://youtu.be/2zHnWN7zNAw Omron Blood Pressure Monitor Review! Like Share And Subscribe ====================== https://youtu.be/V1JA93ZcqY0 Best Way to Monitor Blood Pressure at Home If you often experience high blood pressure, hypertension or even stroke. It is advisable that you regularly check your blood pressure regularly. Below are some tips to keep in mind before you start to take readings with your blood pressure. ⦁ Go to a quiet place to relax to enable you listen to your own heath beat. ⦁ Make sure that you’ve emptied your bladder. Since full bladder can alter your blood pressure reading making your results inaccurate. ⦁ Roll up your long sleeve or remove it completely. ⦁ Don't smoke, drink caffeinated beverages or exercise within 30 minutes before measuring your blood pressure. ⦁ Good Posture- Sit with your back straight and supported (on a dining chair, rather than a sofa). Your feet should be flat on the floor and your legs should not be crossed. Your arm should be supported on a flat surface (such as a table) with the upper arm at heart level. Make sure the middle of the cuff is placed directly above the eye of the elbow. ⦁ Don't panic if a reading is high. Relax for a few minutes and try again. ⦁ Keep a record of your blood pressure readings and the time of day they are made. STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL ⦁ Locate your ⦁ pulse-Locate your pulse by lightly pressing your index and middle fingers slightly to the inside centre of the bend of your elbow (where the brachial ⦁ artery is). If you cannot locate your pulse, place the head of the stethoscope (on a manual monitor) or the arm cuff (on a digital monitor) in the same general area. ⦁ Secure the cuff-Slide the cuff onto your arm, making sure that the stethoscope head is over the artery (when using a manual monitor.) The cuff may be marked with an arrow to show the location of the stethoscope head. The lower edge of the cuff should be about 1 inch above the bend of your elbow. Use the fabric fastener to make the cuff snug, but not too tight. Place the stethoscope in your ears. Tilt the ear pieces slightly forward to get the best sound. ⦁ Hold the bulb in your right hand. ⦁ 1Press the power button. All display symbols should appear briefly, followed by a zero. This indicates that the monitor is ready. ⦁ Inflate the cuff by squeezing the bulb with your right hand. If you have a monitor with automatic cuff inflation, press the start button. ⦁ Watch the gauge. Keep inflating the cuff until the gauge reads about 30 points (mm Hg) above your expected systolic pressure. ⦁ Sit quietly and watch the monitor. Pressure readings will be displayed on the screen. For some devices, values may appear on the left, then on the right. ⦁ Wait for a long beep. This means that the measurement is complete. Note the pressures on the display screen. Systolic pressure (the force of the blood against the artery walls as your heart beats) appears on the left and diastolic pressure (the blood pressure between heartbeats) on the right. Your pulse rate may also be displayed in between or after this reading. ⦁ Allow the cuff to deflate. ⦁ If you did not get an accurate reading, DO NOT inflate the cuff again right away. Wait one minute before repeating the measurement. Start by reapplying the cuff. 4. Record your blood pressure. Follow your doctor's instructions on when and how often you should measure your blood pressure. Record the date, time, systolic and diastolic pressures. You should also record any special circumstances like any recent exercise, meal, or stressful event. At least once a year, and especially after you first purchase your blood pressure monitor, bring your monitor with you to your doctor's visit to check the machine’s accuracy. This is done by comparing a blood pressure reading from your machine with one from the doctor's office machine.

http://heartnews365.com/angirx33288137/ Congestive Heart Failure High Blood Pressure, Does High Blood Pressure Cause Congestive Heart Failure? Heart failure does not mean the heart has stopped working. Rather, it means that the heart's pumping power is weaker than normal or the heart has become less elastic. With heart failure, blood moves through the heart's pumping chambers less effectively, and pressure in the heart increases, robbing your body of oxygen and nutrients. High blood pressure brings on heart failure by causing left ventricular hypertophy, a thickening of the heart muscle that results in less effective muscle relaxation between heart beats. This makes it difficult for the heart to fill with enough blood to supply the body’s organs, especially during exercise, leading your body to hold onto fluids and your heart rate to increase. Looking for a natural remedy to reverse coronary heart disease that work?

Is A Blood Pressure Of 160 90 High? There is one organ which causes high blood pressure (and it's not what you think!) and there are specific exercises you can use to target and fix your blood pressure easily. No diet, lifestyle changes or medication required: http://hibloodpressure.stream/ Answers from: Bruce McFarland Priya Roy Gilon Sara Shah Sarah Brewer Yes. Remember normal blood pressure is 120/80. Higher than 140/90 and the use of blood pressure medicine might be considered. In between these two, lifestyle modifications will be suggested. Not smoking. Moderating alcohol intake. Increasing fruits and vegetables in diet. Limiting salt intake. Reducing stress. Exercise. Weight loss. When measuring ones own blood pressure, try to be consistent about the measurements. Use the same equipment. Same time of day. Same arm (left vs right)Same body position. Seated, calmly with feet on ground and back against the chairs back. Record the blood pressure in a log and also any circumstances that may effect the reading.(examples: Finished big breakfast, Took walk, Argued with wife)Use the record to understand how life choices are effecting you. If blood pressure readings are consistently high, see a doctor. Symptoms may or may not be present. Headache. Dizziness. Blurred vision. Chest pain. Palpitations. Anxiousness. Perspiration. The body is not designed to withstand high blood pressure values. The heart will work harder to push blood through stiff and non-compliant blood vessels in hypertension. The result, like any muscle being worked, is enlargement of the heart. However, unlike biceps, the heart's function will be impaired as it enlarges. Also, high pressures will lead to sheer forces tearing the intimal lining (inner suface) of blood vessels. This is the type of damage that trigger strokes, heart attacks and dissecting aortic aneurysms (a dilating then tearing of the main, largest artery). The blood pressure at its worst, is the number apt to do the harm. What is measured at random moments is only a glimpse of how we are when other situations occur. So, when blood pressure is high, even temporarily, it places vulnerable blood vessels at risk of damage. Small vessels in the eye and kidneys getting damage lead to two of the more common consequences from hypertension: retinopathy and nephropathy. Your question, Is a blood pressure of 160/90 high? is yes. It should be a wake up alarm to investigating your health. Hypertension is a silent killer. It is one of the leading risk factors, if not the most important risk for cardiovascular disease. Even more than weight, cholesterol and smoking.

Old method to take pressure at home I found this method in a book and it made me interesting. Hang a wrench from a thread. Put your left thumb on the right wrist of the person you are going to take the pressure on. Spread a tape measure on the table parallel to the arm. Move the key by moving it as a pendulum on the tape. If you have low pressure, the key will start spinning on its own axis when you reach numbers 5-7. If the pressure is high, the key will turn when it reaches 10. You should not rely on this method to control the pressure.
