So, how's your "new" blood pressure?

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!
