Important Information on Blood Pressure and its Measurement
How does high or low blood pressure arise?
Your level of blood pressure is determined in the circulatory center of the brain and adjusts to a variety of situations through feedback from the nervous system. To adjust blood pressure, the strength and speed of the heart (Pulse), as well as the width of circulatory blood vessels is altered. Blood vessel width is controlled by fine muscles in the blood vessel walls.
Your level of arterial blood pressure changes periodically during heart activity: During the “blood ejection” (Systole) the value is highest (systolic blood pressure value). At the end of the heart’s “rest period” (Diastole) pressure is lowest (diastolic blood pressure value).
Blood pressure values must lie within certain normal ranges in order to prevent particular diseases.
Which values are normal?
Blood pressure is very high if your diastolic pressure is above 90 mmHg and/or your systolic blood pressure is over 160 mmHg, while at rest. In this case, please consult your physician immediately. Long-term values at this level endanger your health due to continual damage to the blood vessels in your body.
If your systolic blood pressure values are between 140 mmHg and 159mmHg and/or the diastolic blood pressure values between 90 mmHg and 99mmHg, consult your physician. Regular self-checks are necessary.
If you have blood pressure values that are too low, (i.e., systolic values under 105mmHg and/or diastolic values under 60 mmHg), consult your physician.
Even with normal blood pressure values, a regular self-check with your blood pressure monitor is recommended. You can detect possible changes in your values early and react appropriately.
If you are undergoing medical treatment to control your blood pressure, keep a record of values along with time of day and date.
Show these values to your physician. Never use the results of your measurements to independently alter the drug doses prescribed by your physician.
What can be done if regular high or low values are obtained?
a) Consult your doctor.
b) Increased blood pressure values (various forms of hypertension) are associated with considerable health risks over time. Arterial blood vessels in your body are endangered due to constriction caused by deposits in the vessel walls (Arteriosclerosis). A deficient supply of blood to important organs (heart, brain, muscles) can result from arteriosclerosis. Furthermore, the heart will become structurally damaged with increased blood pressure values.
c) There are many different causes of high blood pressure.
We differentiate between the common primary (essential) hypertension, and secondary hypertension. The latter group can be ascribed to specific organ malfunctions. Please consult your doctor for information about the possible origins of your own increased blood pressure values.
d) There are measures which you can take to reduce and even prevent high blood pressure. These measures must be permanent lifestyle changes.
