Yes, it is high. The upper number is ***** high, not critical. The bottom number is ***** not life threatening. Both should go together. Here, the bottom number is ***** higher than than expected based on the top number. You need to recheck it again.

I would expect the top number to be much higher if the bottom number is ***** high, with severe pain.
