Prevention and more. 120/80? Blood pressure (BP) is the force or pressure that carries blood to all parts of the body. A blood pressure reading is the pressure that blood puts on the walls of arteries. There are 2 parts to a blood pressure. One is called systolic and is the top or the first number in a blood pressure reading. The other number is called the diastolic and is the bottom or second number in the reading. ie: 120/80 The systolic (top) number is the peak blood pressure when the heart is beating or squeezing out blood. The diastolic (bottom) number is the pressure when your heart is filling with blood or resting between beats Assessing the Heart Rate and Rhythm Bradycardia is a slow heart rate of less than 60 beats per minute.

Tachycardia is fast heart rate of higher than 100 beats per minute Counting the heart beats per minute while assessing the quality and regularity Common Sites: Upper limb: Axillary, Bracial, Radial, Ulnar
