Blood pressure (BP) is created by the force of your blood pushing against the artery walls as it circulates and the force of the artery walls as they resist blood flow. Elevated pressure in your arteries can mean high blood pressure. You have high blood pressure when your numbers are consistently 140/90 mm Hg (millimeters of mercury) or greater.
