Hi. The target blood pressure in patients of hypertension is 140/90 mmHg. 140(systolic) and 90(diastolic). There will be some fluctuations in the BP measurements throughout the day. So don't panic if a single or few readings come out to be more than that. You have to see the general trend of blood pressure.

Hi. With his age (61 years), good height and weight (what I mean is he is not frail), risk factors of diabetes, HTN and coronary artey disease his target blood pressure would be below 130/80mmHg. If the blood pressure is higher then medication needs to be titrated. After every dose modification he should attain the target BP within one month.
