What is a normal blood pressure reading?

[Music]

normal blood pressure is typically less

than 120 over 80 now blood pressure can

range throughout the day depending on

whether you've had caffeine lack of

sleep or an excess of stress so it's

best to take it at arm level when you've

been sitting in a calm area for a period

of time over a hundred million people in

the US has been diagnosed with high

blood pressure and it increases your

risk of heart disease stroke kidney

disease and eye problems in the long run

it's very important to ultimately know

your numbers figure out what your blood

pressure is now so you know if there's

ever any change in the future so when

you talk to your physician you're

educated to know what your numbers have

been in the past and if there is are any

problems in the future
