Generally, high blood pressure is considered to be 140/90 mm Hg or higher, or 150/90 mm Hg or higher if you’re over the age of 80.
There are two different numbers presented as blood pressure such as systolic and diastolic. When your blood pressure is 135 over 95 it indicates that the systolic pressure is 135 and the diastolic pressure is 95.
135 over 95 blood pressures can also be read as 135/95 millimetres of mercury. Here, the 135 mm Hg systolic means the pressure in the arteries while the heart beats, as well as the 95 mm Hg diastolic is the pressure in the arteries between heartbeats.
When 135 over 95 is good blood pressure, we should follow the blood pressure chart:
Normal blood pressure:
- Systolic: less than 120
- Diastolic: less than 80
Pre-hypertension blood pressure:
- Systolic: 120 to 139
- Diastolic: 80 to 89
High blood pressure (Hypertension) stage 1
- Systolic: 140 -159
- Diastolic: 99 to 99
High blood pressure (Hypertension) stage 2
- Systolic: 160 or higher
- Diastolic: 100 or higher
Hypertensive crisis (emergency care needed)
- Systolic: Higher than 180
- Diastolic: Higher than 110
When 135/95 is good, both numbers must fit into the normal stage above. And, it will fall into other stages of high blood pressure.
Systolic reading or measurement of 135 is in the pre-hypertension the range. On the other hand, a diastolic measurement of 95 is in the high blood pressure or hypertension and stage 1 range.
However, 135 over 95 is high blood pressure stage 1 or hypertension.
