Your blood pressure is 221 over 96?


What your values mean

Your blood pressure is: Too high - Hypertension Stage 1
But regarding your systolic (upper) value your blood pressure is rather:
Way too high - Hypertension Stage 3 / Hypertensive crisis

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.
