Do You Know What’s New With the Blood Pressure Guidelines?

This week, heart specialists formally narrowed the range of blood pressure readings considered high, implying that almost one out of every two adults in the United States has high blood pressure — compared to one out of every three under prior standards — and has to work to lower it. If you think you have any heart disorder, you should get an AED as soon as possible. AED detects ventricular fibrillation very quickly. You can get an AED machine for sale online or from any store.

New Guidelines

Blood pressure of 120 over 80 is now regarded normal; anything between 120 and 129 over 80 is now considered raised; 130 over 80 to 139 over 89 is now considered stage 1 hypertension; and anything 140 over 90 or more is now deemed stage 2 hypertension, according to the new standards. People are considered to be in hypertensive crisis if their blood pressure is 180 over 120 or greater. They will require emergency treatment or hospitalization.

As a result of the new guidelines, 46 percent of American adults, many under the age of 45, will now be classified as hypertensive. According to the previous standard, 32% of adults in the United States had high blood pressure.
