Blood pressure is the amount of force that the blood puts onto blood vessel walls when the heart muscle contract and relax. Blood pressure is the measurement of pressure in the arteries, which are the vessels that move blood flow to and from the heart. How quickly the arteries respond to the blood flow determines blood pressure.
Why is Low Blood Pressure dangerous?
Low blood pressure affects the delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to vital organs like the heart, brain and kidneys. If these organs receive inadequate blood flow, they face an increased risk of permanent damage.
