diastolic

Pertaining to DIASTOLE. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure during diastole and is the lower of the two figures measured. The peak pressure is called the SYSTOLIC pressure.

Diastolic

The phase of blood circulation in which the heart's pumping chambers (ventricles) are being filled with blood. During this phase, the ventricles are at their most relaxed, and the pressure against the walls of the arteries is at its lowest.
