High Blood pressure also commonly known as hypertension is a situation in which your blood pressure increases to very high levels. When your blood pressure is measured using a sphygmomanometer, it takes into consideration the amount of blood that passes through your blood vessels and the amount of resistance will meet per minute when the heart pumps the blood.

There are several conditions that may cause your arterial vessels to become narrow and this causes a significant increase in blood flow resistance. Another thing to note is that the more your arterial blood vessels are narrowed, the higher your blood pressure readings will be. When this situation continues for a long period of time, it leads to a steady increase in your blood pressure and will result in very serious health complications like heart diseases.
