In the past 140/90 was considered the beginning of hypertension. But research in recent years has shown that anything above 120/70 may be harmful and is considered a risk factor for many conditions.

Often blood pressure readings in a doctor's office or hospital are higher than when taken elsewhere. Either with a high quality home device or readings at a local fire station often are much lower, so a number of measurements away from a clinical setting should be taken, eliminating "White Coat Hypertension" before any decision about medication is made.

As personal example, my blood pressure averages 102/61 anywhere away from a clinical setting, but in my doctor's office, it is usually well above 140/90.
