Patience :

Based on the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's clinical guidelines for adults 18 ears and older, 120/80 is the optimal blood pressure. The first number is XXXXX systolic pressure, which is generated when the heart contracts and beats. The second number is XXXXX the diastolic pressure. It is based on when the heart relaxes between beats. 120/80-139/89 is consider prehypertensive and probably would need to be monitored. If the blood pressure is 140/90 and above, it is called high blood pressure, or hypertension.

Blood pressure. (Goal is systolic blood pressure of 90 mmHg or greater.)If this answer works for you, lease press the green ACCEPT button as I then get credit for my time.

Patience :

A doctor may use blood pressure as an indicator as to whether your condition is stabilized. If the systolic pressure is closer to normal, then it may mean you're on the mend, because a strong infection tends to lower that measure.

60-100 is considered a normal pulse rate. So yours in on the high side, but still within normal range.
