Low Blood Pressure

more about Low Blood Pressure


Hypotension


  • Hypotension is a condition in which the blood pressure (an index of the body's circulation system) falls below what is considered to be normal.  Blood pressure is a relative term that may vary with the patient's age (e.g., lower in infants, 80/40 millimeters of mercury), underlying medical condition, levels of stress, activity, medications and environment.
  • Blood pressure below 90mmHg systolic or 60mmHg diastolic (a drop in blood pressure) that results in symptoms such as dizziness, fainting (especially upon standing), cold extremities and pallor of skin, all point to Hypotension.  However, a person may have normal, Low Blood Pressure without any symptoms, thus requiring no treatment except for observation.


  • Treat underlying cause -- replace the lost fluids and blood
  • Assure adequate amounts of salt
  • Stop the offending medication
  • Stand up slowly, especially elderly individuals
  • See individual diseases for further details
