Blood pressure is the force exerted by your blood against the walls of your blood vessels as it pumped out of your heart and around your body. Many factors can affect your blood pressure, including the strength and efficiency of your heart, the volume and thickness of your blood, the health and elasticity of your blood vessels (especially your arteries), your fitness status, your age and your overall health. Certain medications can affect your blood pressure, too.
