Pulse Pressure Formula
The following formula is used to calculate a pulse pressure.
PP = SBP – DBP
- Where PP is the pulse pressure (mmHg)
- SBP is the systolic blood pressure (mmHg)
- DBP is the diastolic blood pressure (mmHg)
Pulse Pressure Definition
A pulse pressure is defined as the difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressures.
Pulse Pressure Example
How to calculate pulse pressure?
- First, measure the SBP.
Measure your systolic blood pressure.
- Next, measure the DBP.
Measure your diastolic blood pressure.
- Finally, calculate the pulse pressure.
Subtract the DBP from the SBP to calculate the pulse pressure.
Pulse pressure is a measure of the difference between the systolic blood pressure and the diastolic blood pressure.
Healthy pulse pressures are considered to be between 40 and 60 mmHg.
