Systolic blood pressure is the pressure of blood in the arteries when the ventricles are in systole, i.e. when they are contracting. Diastolic blood pressure is the pressure of blood in the arteries when the ventricles are in diastole, i.e. when they are relaxing. The average systolic and diastolic blood pressure of a human being are 120 and 80 mm Hg respectively.
