Hypertension; A measure of the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in the arteries. The more blood your heart pumps, and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure. Consistently high blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke, and other serious medical conditions. Recommended blood pressure levels vary by age.
