Re : High Diastolic with "Normal" Systolic

Diastolic is the pressure of the blood when your heart is in the resting stage after the blood has pumped. This is the one they are usually most concerned about as it shows whether or not the heart is really relaxing between pumping of blood.

Re : Biopyhysical Profiles with PIH??

<t>Just as I thought! My OB just really hasnt been very proactive with me I guess. Hes never even acted like the PIH is that big of a deal. Ive never had a 24 hr, thought for sure they would order one when I was at L&D at 24 weeks due to high blood pressure and stomach pains, but they took my pr...
