The force of the blood pumped from the heart against the blood vessels is known as blood pressure. The blood flow is possible because of the force, which helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout your body. High blood pressure, often referred to as hypertension, occurs when there is too much pressure within your blood vessels. Not only can high blood pressure damage your blood vessels, but it can also lead to other health problems.
