This is an unanswerable question, sort of along the lines of "what is more important in breathing; inhaling or exhaling?" Heart Rate and Blood Pressure are interdependent aspects of the cardiovascular system. There is frankly no way to assign an order of importance of one over the other as a deficiency in one is usually compensated by the other; though neither can exist without the other. Ralph
