A blood pressure of 189 over 125 is not safe. The blood vessels in a person's body would be under great stress, and the high blood pressure could cause damage to the body's organs. The brain is particularly affected by high blood pressure. Anyone with this high of a blood pressure should go to an emergency room immediately.
