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
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 systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure.
Healthy pulse pressures are considered to be between 40 and 60 mmHg.
