Short Description of Low Blood Pressure
Hypotension or low blood pressure is a reading of less than 90/60 mmHg. It does not always cause symptoms but if it does, you may need treatment to stabilize the blood pressure.
Symptoms of Low Blood Pressure
- Dehydration and unusually feeling thirsty
- Inability to focus
- Blurring of vision
- Cold, clammy and pale skin
- Rapid, shallow breathing
About Low Blood Pressure
Normally, blood is pushed against the arteries with each heartbeat. The force of the blood pushing against the arterial walls is known as your blood pressure. This number goes up or down depending on your activities, like sleeping or moving about. Hypotension is the medical term of low blood pressure and is defined as having a systolic pressure of less than 90 mmHg and a diastolic pressure of less than 60 mmHg. Hypertension on the other hand is a bp that is greater than 130/90.
Our blood pressure is comprised of two measurements: when the heart is contracting and in the period when it is at rest in between the heartbeats. The systolic pressure refers to the measurement of the blood pumping through the arteries when the ventricles contracts. The systole is the one that supplies blood to the body. The diastolic pressure or diastole is the measurement for the periods of rest. It supplies the heart with blood by filling the coronary arteries.
Etiology of Low Blood Pressure
Having low blood pressure is good in most scenarios (<120/80) as opposed to having high blood pressure or hypertension. However, low bp that causes symptoms like dizziness and tiredness can be a sign of an underlying medical problem that requires treatment.
Low blood pressure can happen with:
- Extended bed rest
- Pregnancy especially during the first 24 weeks
- Reduction of blood volume due to major trauma, dehydration or severe internal bleeding
- Certain drugs: For instance diuretics and other medications that treat hypertension; heart medicine like beta blockers, medicine for Parkinson’s disease; tricyclic antidepressants; erectile dysfunction medication especially in combination with nitroglycerine; narcotics and alcohol. Also, other over-the-counter and prescription meds when combined with drugs that treat hypertension
- Heart issues: For instance an abnormally low heart rate or bradycardia, problems with heart valves, heart attack and heart failure. The heart may not be able to circulate supple blood supply to accommodate the needs of the body
- Endocrine issues: medical problems include complications with hormone-producing glands such as an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism), parathyroid disease, adrenal insufficiency (Addison’s disease), low blood sugar and diabetes
- Septic Shock – severe infection happens when bacteria leaves the original site of infection and enters the bloodstream. This bacteria can produce toxins that affect the blood vessels, leading to a severe and life-threatening decline in bp.
- Anaphylaxis – Extreme allergic reactions may occur in people that are highly sensitive to medicine such as penicillin, certain foods like peanuts or to bee and wasp stings. This kind of shock is characterized by breathing issues, hives, itchiness, swelling of the throat and sudden dramatic fall in blood pressure
- Neurally mediated hypotension: Unlike orthostatic hypotension, the disorder causes blood pressure to drop after prolonged standing, leading to symptoms of dizziness, nausea, and fainting. The condition usually affects young patients and happens because of an error of communication between the heart and brain
- Nutritional Problems – patients suffering from a lack of essential vitamins B-12 and folic acid results to anemia, and in turn lowers the blood pressure
Types of Low Blood Pressure (Hypotension)
- Orthostatic – This is also known as postural hypotension and refers to a drop in bp that happens when you move from a sitting or supine position to standing. When your body adjusts to the change in position, you can get dizzy or lightheaded. Many people attribute this to “seeing stars” when they rise from a sitting position. It is also the most common type of low bp and affects everyone regardless of age but is seen mostly in older patients. Pregnancy and aging can also result in an overall lowering of the blood pressure. Diseases that affect the autonomic nervous system like diabetes and Parkinson’s disease can lead to orthostatic hypotension. This type affects thirty to fifty percent of people suffering from Parkinson’s, and approximately thirty percent of people affected with diabetes.
- Postprandial hypotension refers to a drop in blood pressure that happens after you eat. Based on a 2010 study, low blood pressure after eating is seen more commonly in older adults and in patients suffering from autonomic dysfunction.
- Neurally Mediated – The blood pressure requires coordination between the nervous and other bodily systems like hormones and different organs. Neurally mediated hypotension occurs when there is an abnormal reflex interaction between the brain and the heart. Neurally mediated hypotension occurs when standing in one position for a prolonged period. Kids experience this type of hypotension more often than adults. It also happens when there is a strong emotional response that occurs like feeling scared or shocked. Some patients experience low bp during dental or medical procedures.
- Severe – A severe drop in blood pressure happens during shock. This occurs when the patient experiences a serious infection or life-threatening injury. During shock, the organs are not able to get the blood and oxygen needed to correctly function. Severe hypotension may be a threat to life if it is not treated immediately.
