What are normal blood pressure and pulse readings?
Normal blood pressure is taken to be below 120/80. The numerator, 120, represents systolic blood pressure, while the denominator, 80, represents the diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure is considered normal if between 90 and 119, and diastolic pressure from 60 to 79. The normal pulse ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute in healthy adults.
