High Blood Pressure

What is Blood Pressure?

Blood Pressure is the pressure of the blood in the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body.

How is Blood Pressure measured?

Blood pressure is usually measured by wrapping an inflatable pressure bag around the upper arm. The bag is connected to a pressure-measuring device. The entire instrument is called a "sphygmomanometer" (sfig-mo-mah-nom-eh-ter).
