The level of blood pressure considered to be too high.

Q: What number is considered too high when taking my BP and pulse is 112?

A: Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80. Prehypertension is 120/80 to 139/89. Consistent readings above this level need to be evaluated by a health care provider for consideration of treatment. A normal heart rate for adults at rest ranges from 60 to 100. Your rate is high if this is a resting measurement. You should be evaluated by your doctor. For more information about your pulse or heart rate, go to this page at the Mayo Clinic site.
