Asking for my dad. Would appreciate answers from members here specially doctors lalo na kung cardiologist kahit hindi cardio kung alam help na rin.
From what I know For adults ( NOT sure if applies to elderly males over 75yr of age )
NORMAL BP ----------- 120/70 to 120/80
HIGH NORMAL BP----- 130/80 to 140/90
HIGH BP---------------- 140/90 and over
AT REST normal Pulse rate is 60 to 80/ minute
So what is the NORMAL BP and HIGH NORMAL BP range for a 78 yr old man when at rest be it sitting on a chair relaxed on inclined in a bed. Di naman bed ridden.
When a person his age is doing his regular non streneous activities ( walking, mild exercise/stretching... ) what should be his maximim BP and pulse rate ans still be still on a safe range ?
His avg resting BP with medication (cozaar,catapres & Norvasc )
120/70 Bp pulse(regular rhythm ) is 53 to 55 /minute with 25 mg betaloc
130/80 Bp pulse(regular rhythm ) is 58 to 60/minute with 18.75mg betaloc
140/80 or sometimes 140/90 BP pulse( regular rhythm )is 65 to 70/minute if NO betaloc.
Ive yet to test his bp after typical activities as described above
Thank you and God bless to those who will respond
