LOW BLOOD PRESSURE
Low blood pressure or hypotension is a medical condition that is characterized by blood pressure level that is lower than 90/60. The symptoms of the condition include blurry vision, light-headedness, fainting, nausea, cold and pale skin, fatigue and loss of concentration.
HOW IS LOW BLOOD PRESSURE DIAGNOSED?
The health care provider will examine to determine the cause of low blood pressure. The vital signs (temperature, pulse, rate of breathing and blood pressure) will be checked frequently. The following tests may be done:
• Basic metabolic panel
• Blood cultures to check for infection
• Complete Blood Count (CBC), including blood differential
• X-ray of the abdomen
• X-ray of the chest
HOW IS LOW BLOOD PRESSURE TREATED?
Mild low blood pressure does not require treatment. Depending on the cause of this disorder, sometimes certain medications such as midodrine might be prescribed to patients.
