"Of course the above pressure important for over-fifties but also keep the pressure in the eye: a very high systolic pressure compared to a remarkably low pressure indicates stiffening of the blood vessels and thus at a greater risk. That escapes when you simply measure the systolic pressure."
"Well, most people hang the upper and lower pressure properly with each other", puts Bots. "I think you also in people under 45 years of age usually come out well if you like the pressure would go up. Mere"
But Ken Burge sees nothing in a radical change. "Doctors look for in elderly long lake on the upper pressure but the pressure completely forgotten? I understand that this firm position is a consequence of a nice dinner of the three men together. Why? Just like we fiftieth medically suddenly other people are on us. "
New standards for recording high blood pressure - The limits for a 'normal' blood pressure are adjusted. A blood pressure is now only too high as a systolic pressure of 140 millimeters of mercury pressure. The new guideline for the treatment of high blood pressure is announced at the annual meeting of European cardiologists in Amsterdam.
The most striking change is that doctors now only one blood pressure standard are: a systolic pressure of up to 140 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) that relieves the former double standard of up to 140 mm Hg for people with low to moderate risk of heart disease, and 130 mm Hg for high-risk patients such as diabetics.
