Stroke web­site of Canada and will share a lit­tle in­for­ma­tion with you:

Your blood pres­sure, which is a mea­sure of the pres­sure or force of blood against the walls of your blood ves­sels (known as ar­ter­ies). Your blood pres­sure read­ing is based on two mea­sures called sys­tolic and di­as­tolic. The sys­tolic (top) num­ber is the mea­sure of the pres­sure force when your heart con­tracts and pushes out the blood. The di­as­tolic (bot­tom) num­ber is the mea­sure of when your heart re­laxes between beats. High blood pres­sure is the num­ber one risk fac­tor for Stroke and a ma­jor risk fac­tor for Heart dis­ease. High Blood pres­sure is when the blood pres­sure in your ar­ter­ies is el­e­vated and your heart has to work harder than nor­mal to pump blood through the blood ves­sels. It is im­por­tant that you have your blood pres­sure checked reg­u­larly by your health­care provider.
