Measuring Vital Signs SERIES: Part 2: Blood Pressure and Pain - Updated 2011


This program has been revised to reflect changed blood pressure classifications, and introduces the new blood pressure category of prehypertension. These changes are taken from the Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on the Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure. In healthy adults, normal systolic pressure is now considered to be below 120 and normal diastolic pressure is below 80. Blood pressure in the range of 120 over 80 to 139 over 89 is classified as prehypertension. Blood pressure of 140 over 90 or higher is classified as hypertension. Readings far below the normal range are classified as hypotension.
