If left untreated, high blood pressure can result in serious health problems, including damage to the heart and other organs. Therefore, the monitoring of blood pressure is vital so that problems can be detected early on. Following are normal blood pressure ranges by age. The systolic pressure is when the heart's ventricles contract and push the blood through the veins; diastolic pressure measures the pressure in your blood vessels between heartbeats, when your heart is resting.
