Blood Pressure - The pressure exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels; constitutes one of the principal vital signs. Arterial blood pressure is constantly fluctuating during the course of the cardiac cycle The highest pressure in the cycle is called the systolic blood pressure, and represents the pressure in the artery when the heart is beating. The lowest pressure is the diastolic blood pressure, and represents the pressure in the artery when the heart is at rest. Both the systolic and diastolic pressure are necessary for a physician to evaluate the status of a patient's blood pressure. Many factors such as physical activity, anxiety, stress, eating, smoking, medication or the time of the day, can influence your blood pressure. Blood pressure is typically low in the mornings and increases from the afternoon to the evening. It is on average lower in the summer and higher in the winter.
