Hi hellz-@n. So, you just came in from running a mile on the track and found that your B/P is 130/100. Nope...perfectly normal. But, now you say that you haven't been running on the track. Ok then, what is the average B/P with multiple measurements for even today. Well, you realize that one of the reasons that the human has been around for 3.5 million years on this earth is because we adapt. We can run on the track and really crank up the heart rate
and B/P in order to get more oxygen
to the tissues. At the other end, we can be in a wonderful deep sleep and have a B/P monitor on us and our pulse can be 56 and B/P can be 96/60. Isn't that great!
Now you get the picture. These American Heart Association B/P recomendations are GENERAL.
Today I had a routine doc visit and I was almost late. I got there just in time. The nurse took me in and weighed me and took my B/P. She made the comment Hmmm....144/98. I smiled and knew that my brain had triggered my body to release adrenalin which in turn directly clamped down on some of my vessels while relaxing others while at the same time told the boys in the boiler room to shovel more coal to the boiler. As a result of this my B/P went up.
Have a safe journey!
