DBP stands for Diastolic Blood Pressure number, and it indicates the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between beats. This action fills the heart with blood and oxygen.

SBP stands for Systolic Blood Pressure and has a greater impact on blood pressure staging. It can vary with age, sex, and country.
