Asked by pooja anand | 13th Mar, 2012, 08:21: PM
Diastolic blood pressure - It is the pressure in the bloodstream when the heart relaxes and dilates, filling with blood.
Systolic blood pressure - It is the pressure exerted on the bloodstream by the heart when it contracts, forcing blood from the ventricles of the heart into the pulmonary artery and the aorta.
