  Systolic Pressure



Systolic Pressure

   The pressure of the blood in the arteries when the heart pumps. It is the higher of two blood pressure measurements, e.g., 120/80, where 120 is the systolic pressure.

RELATED TERMS
--------------------------------------

Blood
The life-maintaining fluid which is made up of plasma, red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes), and platelets; blood circulates through the body's heart, arteries, veins, and capillaries; it carries away waste matter and carbon dioxide, and brings nourishment, electrolytes, hormones, vitamins, antibodies, heat, and oxygen to the tissues.

Arteries
Blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart to the arms, legs, head, body and organs.

Heart
The hollow, muscular organ responsible for pumping blood through the circulatory system.

Systolic
Measurement of the maximum blood pressure in the arteries. The larger number is the systolic pressure caused by each pump of the heart.

Subvalvular Aortic Stenosis
Subvalvular aortic stenosis is a narrowing of the flow of blood below the aortic valve in the left ventricle. It is usually caused by a membrane or thickening in the muscle in this area.

Sudden Cardiac Death

Superficial Thrombophlebitis

Survival Rates
Survival rates indicate the percentage of patients or grafts (transplanted organs) that are still alive functioning at a certain point posttransplant. Survival rates are often given at one-, three-, and five-year increments. Policy modifications are never made without examining their impact on transplant survival rates. Survival rates improve with technological and scientific advancements. Developing policies that reflect and respond to these advances in transplantation will also improve survival rates.

Systemic Circulation
The circulation of blood from the left ventricle, through an extensive network of vessels that penetrate every part of the body, to the right side of the heart.
