High blood pressure occurs when any or both of these numbers stay high. The top number, systolic, measures the pressure against artery walls while pumping blood, while the bottom number, diastolic, measures the force between heartbeats.

Normal Range

Blood pressure is an important measure of overall health, and it’s important to understand what is considered normal. For adults, a standard range is less than 120/80 mm Hg
For most adults, a below 120 and a below 80 is considered to be within the normal range. If your diastolic pressure is outside the standard range, blood pressure is likely.

Elevated Range

When the readings consistently fall between 120-129 systolic and less than 80 diastolic mmhg, it signifies elevated blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure can lead to an increased likelihood of developing hypertension, which can cause heart attacks and strokes. Systolic or Diastolic above 135 systolic is not healthy.

Blood pressure readings of 120/80 to 140/90 indicate prehypertension. If left untreated, prehypertension can progress to high blood pressure, leading to thickening of the heart muscle, micro-tearing of the artery wall, cholesterol deposition, and ultimately heart failure and atherosclerosis.

Monitoring your blood pressure Measurement with Enhanced Intellisense

Omron’s Enhanced IntelliSense Technology is a patented blood pressure measurement technology used in many of their higher-end premium or hospital-graded models. This technology is designed to provide accurate and comfortable blood pressure readings with one-touch connectivity.

It uses a unique algorithm to determine the optimal level of inflation for the cuff. The monitor inflates the cuff to the ideal level (or deflates) that is customized for each individual user, based on their arm size and other factors. This inflation for maximum comfort ensures that the cuff is not too tight or too loose, which can lead to inaccurate readings. Adjustments are required (every 2 cm) when detected due to movement of the body.

In addition, the technology includes an advanced sensor with detection of any irregular heartbeat detection, which can also affect the accuracy of blood pressure readings. The monitor alerts the user if an irregular heartbeat is detected (heartbeat symbol will blink), so they can consult with their healthcare provider if necessary.

The Enhanced IntelliSense Technology also incorporates other features to enhance accuracy, such as averaging multiple readings taken over a short period of time, and providing an indicator if the user moves during the reading.
