There are numerous factors capable of modifying the pressure values registered in a given population. These values ​​may in fact vary according to sex, age, body weight, the device used, the time of day, and the psychophysical and general health of the individual *. Precisely in relation to this last point, it is natural to wonder if there are ideal pressure values, and what is the normal range to follow. Numerous epidemiological studies have attempted to answer these questions and, although there is some variability in the results, in adulthood a blood pressure of 115-120 mmHg for the maximum (or systolic) and 75-80 mmHg for the minimum is considered ideal. (or diastolic).



* For example, the blood pressure values ​​of a child, mainly influenced by height, are generally lower than those of an adult, who in turn shows blood pressure levels lower than those of the elderly. In fact, as we age, the arteries lose their elasticity and oppose greater resistance to the flow of blood. Blood pressure varies throughout the day, peaking in the early morning and late afternoon.

Attention, the pressure rises at night. For this, according to experts, nighttime blood pressure is the most important. 

Blood pressure monitor on Amazon

This Omron digital arm blood pressure monitor is available online, adaptable to arms with circumferences between 22 and 42 cm, equipped with Sigma Shape technology, thanks to which it is possible to enjoy greater stability and comfort in the measurement. This device averages the latest measurements and has memory for up to 100 measurements per user with a heart rate irregularity sensor. It even has a guest mode for measuring blood pressure but without recording blood pressure. The measurement results are easy to understand thanks to the colored lights, which turn green when the values ​​are within the limits and orange when they leave the parameters. The start button also acts as a switch off while the green "ok" light indicates that the bracelet has been worn at best. Clinically validated, the product has passed rigorous testing conducted by leading healthcare organizations.

Alternatively, opt for an upper arm digital blood pressure monitor with USB power cable and large backlit digital screen for two users. This blood pressure device stores up to 240 readings, 120 for each user, with averages of the last 3 readings for each, to provide a clearer understanding of blood pressure. Each recording is stored with the date and time stamp to keep track of the results. Quick and accurate measurements allow you to take systolic and diastolic blood pressure and pulse in seconds. Three consecutive readings, one every 15 seconds, can be automatically taken and averaged. The easy-to-read display consists of a large backlit LCD screen so that it can be easily used at home even in low light conditions

Normal pressure values

The cardiovascular risk of a subject increases progressively for pressure values ​​higher than 115/75 mmHg, to cross over into the pathological (we speak of hypertension) beyond 140/90 mmHg. Generally, doctors therefore believe that a slightly low blood pressure is a protective element against cardiovascular disease


Arterial pressure values Systolic / diastolic
DANGEROUS LOW PRESSURE < 50/33 mmHg
TOO LOW PRESSURE < 60/40 mmHg
LOW PRESSURE < 90/60 mmHg
OPTIMAL BLOOD PRESSURE <115/75 mmHg
ACCEPTABLE BLOOD PRESSURE <130/85
PRE-HYPERTENSION 130-139 / 85-89 mmHg
STAGE HYPERTENSION 1 140-159 / 90-99 mmHg
STAGE HYPERTENSION 2 >160 / >100 mmHg

Blood pressure and cardiovascular risk values

Cardiovascular risk quantifies the likelihood of suffering a disease of the heart or blood vessels, based on the presence or absence of certain risk factors. This danger is increased not only by high blood pressure values, but also by smoking, diabetes, overweight (especially in the abdominal area), a diet rich in cholesterol, saturated fats and simple sugars, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol abuse, from entry into menopause (especially if premature), and from aging. Cardiovascular risk can also be assessed through a series of blood tests, including total and LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, homocysteine, fibrinogen, C-reactive protein and antithrombin III.



Decrease the pressure values

DASH diet, reduction of the dietary intake of salt and sodium, abolition of smoking, reduction of alcohol consumption, achievement and / or maintenance of a healthy weight, regular exercise.
