Question: Blood pressure
|Karen Militar - Sat Sep 03, 2005 12:43 am||
Just wanna know how the blood pressure and blood count relates.
If the blood pressure is within the normal range, can we assume that the blood count would likely be within the normal levels?
Take care everyone! Thank you.

Blood pressure is the force of blood against the walls of arteries. Blood pressure is recorded as two numbers—the systolic pressure (as the heart beats) over the diastolic pressure (as the heart relaxes between beats).
A blood count gives information on white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets.
There isnt a direct relationship.
