High blood pressure happens when the force of blood pushing against your blood vessel walls is consistently too high. Every time your heart beats, it creates pressure that pushes blood through your arteries, veins, and capillaries. Your family doctor can monitor your blood pressure and even prescribe medication to keep it in check. But when you see a medical practitioner with high blood pressure, you benefit from the extensive training and experience of a medical professional whose focus is keeping your heart healthy.
Your blood pressure readings give your local heart specialist or cardiologists at our state-of-the-art practice important information about your heart health. The first number in a blood pressure reading represents the systolic pressure, which is the pressure required to pump the blood out of your heart and into the circulatory system. The bottom number, or diastolic pressure, is created as your heart rests between heartbeats.

Knowing Your Blood Pressure Numbers
The average readings that indicate a normal blood pressure is 120/80 or lower. You’re considered to have high blood pressure if your systolic blood pressure is 130 or higher and your diastolic pressure higher than 80 and stays that high over time. Infrequent spikes may be nothing to worry about, but persistent high readings can lead to serious consequences, including a heart attack or stroke.
