Your blood pressure is 102 over 81?


What your blood pressure values mean

Your blood pressure is: Normal

But regarding your systolic (upper) value your blood pressure is rather: Too low - Hypotension!

If you are getting two different types of classification for your blood pressure it is more likely to chose the one that is considered worse, e.g. if your systolic (upper) value is 'normal' and your diastolic (lower) value is 'high normal', consider 'high normal' as your classification.

Diastolic value
(lower)




Your blood pressure is normal.

Requirement for a normal blood pressure is a value of under 130 over 85.

Would your systolic (upper) value increase by 18 mmHg to 130 mmHg and your diastolic (lower) value would increase by 4 mmHg to 85 mmHg your blood pressure was not anymore 'normal' but 'high normal'.
