My Dad had a serious heart attack over 2 weeks ago. He needed major surgery and had part of his bowel removed because it had broken down and continued to bleed. The bleeding has now subsided and they are quite happy. I understand he's seriously ill and we don't know what's ahead of us. Can someone explain his blood pressure to me. It's 96/65 (average 72) what does this mean, his heart rate is about 112. Sometimes Doctors are to technical for me.
Thank-you for any information,
Here is a link to information on the basics of blood pressure and what the different numbers mean - http://www.healthcentral.com/high-blood-pressure/understanding-blood-pressure.html?ic=4018.
