Blood Pressure is the pressure of the blood in the arteries as the heart pumps it around the body and is one of the principal vital signs.

A normal blood pressure measurement for an adult sits between 90/60-130/80.

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure
Suffering from high blood pressure puts you at risk of serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, heart failure and arterial aneurysms.

Often there are no signs of high blood pressure so it is important to have regular blood pressure testing. There are lifestyle choices you can make to help manage high blood pressure, such as keeping physically active, reducing alcohol intake, eating a healthy diet and quitting smoking.
