What Is a Dangerous Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure measurements include 2 numbers. The first number is the systolic blood pressure or measurement of the pressure in your blood vessels when your heartbeats and the second number is the pressure in your vessels when the heart rests between beats. According to the CDC, normal blood pressure is less than 120/80, and high blood pressure(or hypertension) is considered above 140/90.
If your blood pressure stays high, over time, your risk of heart attack and other problems caused by atherosclerosis are greatly increased. High blood pressure can cause your heart to enlarge and weaken, resulting in heart failure. With heart failure, your heart can no longer pump adequate blood throughout your body.
Hypertension can also increase the chance of abnormal bulges or balloons in the artery walls called aneurysms. Arteries are blood vessels that carry the blood from your heart to different parts of your body. Aneurysms commonly appear in the main artery, the one that carries the blood from the heart to the body. Also, these abnormal bulges can occur in the arteries of the brain, legs, intestines, and spleen. Aneurysms can burst and result in death.
High blood pressure (or hypertension) affects one in three adults in the United States, and because symptoms are absent unless blood pressure is extremely high, many people do not even know that they have it. To monitor and manage this condition, your blood pressure readings have to be checked on a regular basis.
