    Today's Homework:    Measure your Resting bp   

 
                        
Do Not Erase Basic Information
  Blood Pressure (bp) >>  The pressure of the beating heart
  Resting Blood Pressure >>  Used to Classify & Treat Blood Pressure
  Classification of bp >>  Classification Categories & Use
  Hypertension >>  Resting bp is abnormally high
  Systolic Blood Pressure >>  Highest heart beat pressure 128/85
  Diastolic Blood Pressure >>  Lowest heart beat pressure  128/85
  Pulse or Pulse Rate >>  Number of heart beats per minute
  Pulse Pressure >>  PP = SP-DP   (128-85 = 43)   PP = 43
  Mean Arterial Pressure >>  Estimation of average artery pressure
  Body Mass Index >>  Calculation:  Weight vs. Height
  mm Hg (pressure units) >>  Millimeters (mm) of Mercury (Hg)
  Average Blood Pressure >>  Used to Diagnose & Treat Hypertension
  White Coat Syndrome >>  bp increases only in the MD office
  Home Blood Pressure >>  Self measured bp outside MD office
  Metabolic Syndrome >>  High bp, cholesterol and glucose
  Life Style Changes >>  Diet, Exercise and Quit Smoking

Mean Arterial Pressure


Mean Arterial Pressure
is the Average Blood Pressure (bp) in the artery at the point of a bp measurement.

MAP is considered the blood perfusion pressure felt by the body's organs. MAP greater than 60 mmHg is considered sufficient pressure to sustain health in the average person.

If MAP falls significantly below 60 mmHg for an appreciable time, the organs may not receive sufficient blood flow, and may become ischemic (a local anemia).

MAP = DP + PP/3
DP = Diastolic Pressure
PP = Pulse Pressure


Note:  A calculated MAP is considered an estimate of the actual measured MAP
