So they decided to lower the standards and now half the country has high blood pressure!

Seems like this might be an issue for pilots,...and truck drivers!? :( :)

My "new" BP is the same as my "old" BP, in that it's within the normal range which hasn't changed. (120/80) Live a clean life, it's easy!

Saw this yesterday and had a check.  The pilot medical limits are:

 

FAA       155/95

EASA    160/95

 

Seems just a way to sell Americans more pills.

Wow...are these blood pressure standards for pilots? New American Heart Association guidelines have just gone to 130/80 as the upper limits. Anything above this should be treated. Many physicians are not happy to say the least. But just wait a week...like anything else in medicine. They will change!
