Systemic blood pressure includes systolic pressure and diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure is the pressure of the blood in the arteries when the heart pumps. It is the higher of two blood pressure measurements. For example, if the blood pressure is 120/80, then 120 is the systolic pressure. Diastolic pressure is the pressure of the blood in the arteries when the heart is filling. It is the lower of two blood pressure measurements. For example, if the blood pressure is 120/80, then 80 is the diastolic pressure. Keywords: systemic blood pressure
