Longer training distances also dampened systolic and diastolic blood pressure in a pretty consistent manner.
Section 4: Cuff Pressure Less than Diastolic Pressure At pressures below diastolic, the cuff does not occlude the artery.
Brachial systolic and diastolic pressure and ankle systolic pressures were measured using a Hawksley random zero sphygmomanometer and Doppler probe.
supine diastolic blood pressure was 7 mmHg.
The corresponding additional reduction in supine diastolic blood pressure was 7 mmHg.
