What is normal blood pressure?
Depending on the country or region, guidelines have been established for blood pressure ranges to classify individuals for hypertension. Two of the commonly used guidelines are:
- 2017 ACC/AHA (American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association)
- 2018 ESC/ESH (European Society of Cardiology, European Society of Hypertension)
Classifications are mainly intended as guidelines and not a mandate. Therefore, limits for classification have to be set based on discussing with a doctor who better understands the individual's medical condition.
