Blood pressure is the measurement of the pressure or force of blood against the blood vessels. It is written as two numbers. The first number is the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats and pushes more blood into the arteries. The second number is the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. For people who are not pregnant , their ideal blood pressure shall be 130/80 or lower. Blood pressure tells us the state of our body.
