What's the difference between high blood pressure and hypertension?   My professor always stated that it is best to define our terms so that we may be on the same page, therefore let's begin.   High blood pressure is simply when the blood pressure in your arteries are elevated beyond the normal. Blood pressure is a ratio of cardio vascular output (how much blood is pumped) vs. peripheral vascular resistance (how loose / tight are the arteries in which they flow).   Hypertension is now a state in which your blood pressure consistently stays elevated above the normal. These are classifed into groups described below.   120/80   Normal   120 - 139 / 80 - 90     Pre Hypertension   140 - 159 / 90 - 100   Stage One Hypertension   160 + / 100                  Stage Two Hypertension   200 / 100                     Emergency
