Low blood pressure (hypotension) is the pressure of the blood in
the arteries. It occurs when the pressure of the blood is
abnormally low. Blood pressure is typically recorded as the
systolic pressure (as the heart beats) over the diastolic
pressure (time between two beats). A consistent blood pressure
reading of 90/60 mm Hg or lower is considered low blood
pressure. People with low BP may experience symptoms of
dizziness or syncope (fainting) as the blood flow to the brain
and other vital organs becomes insufficient.
Common Causes of Low Blood Pressure:
Dehydration (due to sweating and/or diarrhea), Medications (for
high BP or other treatments), Severe infection, Heart attack,
Heart failure, Pregnancy and Fainting are the common causes of
low blood pressure.
