How to use Diastolic pressure in a sentence
Brachial systolic and diastolic pressure and ankle systolic pressures were measured using a Hawksley random zero sphygmomanometer and Doppler probe.
Blood pressure when the heart is at rest is called diastolic pressure.
When blood pressure is measured, the systolic pressure is stated first and the diastolic pressure second.
For example, if a person's systolic pressure is 120 and diastolic pressure is 80, it is written as 120/80 mm Hg.
Diastolic blood pressure-Diastole is the period in which the left ventricle relaxes so it can refill with blood; diastolic pressure is therefore measured during diastole.Advertisement
