Blood pressure is the pressure of the

the heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. The
force against the walls of the arteries is called systolic pressure. When the heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. The
force is the diastolic pressure. The systolic pressure is always stated first. For example: 120/80, systolic pressure is 120 and diastolic is 80.Blood
pressure is given as these two numbers.
