Learn to take a blood pressure:

Blood Pressure Measurement (Includes video tutorial), Recommendations of the British Hypertension Society:"The first section of this tutorial is a video of blood pressure measurement. (Warning, this file is 44MB in size and may take a while to download!) The remainder of this section allows you to test your accuracy by recording 34 blood pressure values and comparing your results with those obtained by 24 experienced observers. You will find a range of falling columns and sounds that correspond to the variety found in clinical practice."

Control of Arterial Blood Pressure:"The blood pressure is the force that causes blood to flow through the arteries, capillaries, and finally veins back to the heart. It is closely regulated via several physiological mechanisms to ensure an adequate tissue blood flow. Both systolic and diastolic pressures increase with age (figure 1)." Includes: Introduction Hormonal mechanisms, Autonomic nervous system, Kidneys, Capillary shift mechanism

Dangers of High Blood Pressure:"High blood pressure means that your heart is working harder than normal to force blood into the arteries and through the circulatory system. In most adults, a blood pressure reading greater than 140 over 90 is considered high. When blood pressure is elevated for an extended period of time, the inner linings of the coronary arteries become damaged."
