Well, When systolic pressure is > 180 and/or diastolic pressure > 120 then it is called Hypertensive Urgency.

At this high blood pressure patient is at risk for serious complications like blood vessel rupture, swelling of the brain, and kidney failure.
You will be given instant medications, or injections to control the blood pressure.

You have a very high blood pressure levels. Please don't leave it alone.

You need to be seen immediately by doctor in ER.
Please do not delay and make a urgent trip to ER ASAP.

Hope this helped
