Pulse Pressure Calculator

Enter your systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure into the calculator to determine you pulse pressure.

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?

  1. First, measure the SBP.

    Measure your systolic blood pressure.

  2. Next, measure the DBP.

    Measure your diastolic blood pressure.

  3. Finally, calculate the pulse pressure.

    Subtract the DBP from the SBP to calculate the pulse pressure.
