Most of the talk about blood pressure regards its high values. When it comes to the low readings, we can’t even be specific about the “how low.”
However, we are here to simplify things without putting our readers at any risk. So, whatever they call it if you have systolic blood pressure less than 90 mm Hg or diastolic BP less than 60, contact your physician.
In the effective blood pressure log, on every page (each page corresponds to a month), we have added a matrix where someone can mark their pressure readings. The rows that correspond to 90, 100, and 110 systolic BP are grey. So, everyone that marks their systolic BP out of this grey area has to be careful.
Hypotension is too low blood pressure. Its usual symptoms are dizziness or lightheadedness, fainting, blurred or fading vision, nausea, fatigue, and lack of concentration.
Extreme hypotension can result in life-threatening conditions. Usual signs and symptoms are confusion, especially in older people, cold or clammy and pale skin, rapid or shallow breathing, weak and rapid pulse.
Some people have the symptoms of hypotension while they have normal BP, and others with systolic BP less than 90 or diastolic less than 60 have no signs. As you see, in both cases, I use measurements. We should have a handy way to make them. All households should have a BP monitor. What do you think?
