Throughout the day, one’s blood pressure naturally rises and falls. Systolic blood pressure measures when your heart beats. Diastolic blood pressure measures between beats. When reading a blood pressure measurement, the systolic number comes first, and the diastolic comes second. A normal blood pressure measurement is read 120/80 mmHg (or less).
