Optimal blood pressure is less than 120/80 mm Hg (systolic pressure is 120 AND diastolic pressure is less than 80). Prehypertension is systolic pressure from 120-139 systolic OR diastolic pressure from 80-89. High blood pressure is systolic pressure of 140 or higher OR diastolic pressure of 90 or higher.
When blood pressure is higher, your heart has to work harder. Visit the American Heart Association for more information.
