The mean arterial pressure (MAP) is the average blood pressure exerted by the blood on the walls of arteries in one full cycle of the heartbeat.
To understand about mean arterial pressure further, it is essential that we learn some basics of blood circulation and heart functioning.
We all know that in human beings and for that matter in all living beings in general, the heart is an essential organ that functions throughout the life of the organism. The heart keeps the blood circulating across the body and is necessary for the supply of oxygen for the lungs.
Consider one single cycle of heartbeat for our understanding. It contains two cycles:
Now, you might have obtained a picture that during diastole the pressure is less because the heart is expanding and vice versa during systole. For a healthy person, the systolic pressure should be less than 120 and diastolic pressure should be less than 80. Any variation in these numbers indicate abnormalities in blood pressure as explained here:
Simply put, mean arterial pressure is the average in the arteries for one heartbeat or one cardiac cycle.
MAP plays a significant role in and provides the health data of a human. It is measured in mm of Mercury (mmHg). It is a critical key for doctors to estimate the blood flow, resistance and supply of blood to the entire body of a human.
A normal human will have 1 MAP value of 70-100 mmHg. Based on its value and range, doctors estimate the chances of occurrence of various dangerous ailment as explained here:
