A systolic blood pressure measurement of 140 mmHg or higher and a diastolic dimension of 90 mmHG or higher (140/90 mmHg) is deemed high. Blood pressure is usually assessed using either a manual (auscultatory) or automatic (oscillometry) meter at a doctor’s office or hospital. Nevertheless, these measurements may be affected by “white coat syndrome”–a patient’s fear or anxiety in a physician’s office causes their blood pressure to quantify above normal levels.
