What is hypertension?

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition in which the pressure of blood against the artery walls is consistently high. When a person has hypertension, the heart has to work harder to pump the blood, which can cause damage over time. The higher the blood pressure and the longer it goes untreated, the more damage it causes.

How is blood pressure measured?

Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). The top number on a blood pressure reading is systolic blood pressure – the pressure your blood is pushing against your artery walls when your heart beats. The bottom number is diastolic blood pressure – the pressure your blood is pushing against your artery walls when your heart is resting between beats.

What is considered high blood pressure?

These ranges serve as a general guide. Talk to your provider to determine what healthy blood pressure looks like for you.

Normal blood pressure: 120/80 mm Hg or lower
Elevated blood pressure: 120-129/80 mm Hg
Stage one hypertension: 130-139/80-90 mm Hg
Stage two hypertension: 140/90 mm Hg or higher
