Some people are asking What is 119/88 blood pressure ? This condition is the primary stage of High blood pressure. 119/88 blood pressure means systolic is 119 mm of Hg and diastolic blood pressure is 88 mm of Hg. 

117/64 blood pressure

Blood pressure is defined as the pressure inside the main arteries of anyone's body . The left ventricle of the heart start contracting and pumps blood into the aorta.As a result blood is delivered to the brain, arms, legs, limbs and to other organs of the body. 

The pressure remains highest when the left ventricle starts to contracting (systolic blood pressure, top number) and lowest when the left ventricle remain relaxes and fills with blood. Then waits for the next contraction (diastolic blood pressure, bottom number). So 119/88 blood pressure means arterial pressure is 119 mm of Hg at its the highest value and 88 mm of Hg and its the lowest value.

A normal blood pressure range for an individual adult is normally defined as 90 to 119 systolic of mm hg and 60 to 79 mm of hg for diastolic. A range between 120 to 139 systolic and 80 to 89 diastolic is termed as pre-hypertension condition , and the readings above that value indicate the high blood pressure or hypertension of any person.
