There is no "normal" value for geriatric patients, either in blood pressure, pulse, or temperature.  Past age seventy, we go by "established patient norms."

If your BP has been 130/90 for the last 20 years, that is your EPN.  If you suddenly start to vary from that, we might want to find out why. 

Have you checked your medical benefits since Obamacare?

134/92 is too high for anyone, jamuna.  Get your facts straight before posting.
