What is blood pressure?

Blood pressure is the measure of the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls. The higher number indicates the force exerted as the heart is contracting and pushing blood (systolic pressure). The lower number indicates the force exerted as the heart relaxes between two beats (diastolic pressure).

Do not hesitate to ask your pharmacist for more information!​
