Longer training distances also dampened systolic and diastolic blood pressure in a pretty consistent manner.
Brachial systolic and diastolic pressure and ankle systolic pressures were measured using a Hawksley random zero sphygmomanometer and Doppler probe.
The corresponding additional reduction in supine diastolic blood pressure was 7 mmHg.
The top number is the systolic measurement, which is the maximum pressure in the arteries, and the bottom number is the diastolic measurement, which is the minimum pressure in the arteries.
Heart murmurs can be diastolic, systolic, or continuous.
