A couple of vital statistics

I went to donate blood today in the middle of a firefighting exercise at work (I'm in IT, so nothing was literally on fire).  A bit stressed, but I'd made the appointment and thought I'd better keep it.  They took my pulse and BP as a part of the process.  The results:
  • Pulse: 60 beats/minute, resting (I had been sitting around for a while, but was not laying down at the time)
  • BP: 106/70
And I had actually been hoping for a little bump in BP, to help pump things out quicker, so I could get in and out fast.  Oh, well.
