My concern is that quite often I will get a reading like 120/65, which is a pulse pressure of 55. I'm going to my cardiologist soon for my biannual checkup, but I just thought I'd get some opinions on this. Thanks very much... (0 replies)
... I am not an expert on BP, but it seems as if even the doctors are stumped at times with spikes for no real apparent reason and so forth. Editor, the BP you mention earlier 115/65 is not low BP.

... guys. I just wanted to know if you think I might have low blood pressure. I've never really had problems with high blood pressure, as every time I check, the diastolic number is always "well contained". But sometimes, the numbers are on the low side. Let me give you some readings. ... (1 replies)

... Thanks for the responses. I'm going to post here a couple of points I've read from some of the engineering articles and other postings elsewhere on the web. I'll try to get permission from the moderator to post the links. Note, for starters, that the digital meters (which use a method of measurement called oscillometric) are generally calibrated against the traditional... (10 replies)
... ds from checkups years ago. But I used to always check it at the pharmacy, etc. because it runs in the family. My systolic was always in the 130s low 140s. My diastolic usually was 80 some years back, but in the last couple of years has run to 90. ... (19 replies)

... Graylorn, You bring up a lot of valid points. Why won't my DO do the same thing with the Atenolol (Wean) without me having to do it myself???? I get readings that range from 113/65 to 121/71. He just says that they are good meds. I am 34, 5' 11" 152 with perfect blood results, 2 perfect EKGS, chest xray & etc. It really doesn't make sense why he won't wean me. Today I had a... (8 replies)

... You said it buddy! I went last night to my GP. And, I brought my cuff. He took my BP and didn't tell me the numbers. Then, he said to take mine (other arm) with my cuff. Guess what...? We both got around 160/90. So, what does that mean? That means my cuff is fine. That means my technique is fine. (8 replies)
