    what is blood pressure
    Blood pressure by definition is the pressure required by the blood to perfuse body organs. It can be calculated by multiplying Heart Rate with Stroke Volume. I hope it helps !

    Well as a general definition, it's the pressure exerted on the walls of blood vessels by circulating blood.

    It can be calculated by multiplying Heart Rate with Stroke Volume. I hope it helps !
    That's how you calculate cardiac output (the volume of blood pumped by the heart in a minute), not BP.

    BP is measured using either an electronic blood pressure monitor or a manual sphygmomanometer and stethoscope.
