Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels, and is one of the principal vital signs.

Disregulation disorders of blood pressure control include high blood pressure, blood pressure that is too low, and blood pressure that shows excessive or maladaptive fluctuation.
