New Delhi, 24 November 2017: Statistics indicate that the prevalence of hypotension or low blood pressure depends on age. It ranges from 5% in patients under 50 years of age to 30% in those over 70 years of age. In healthy people, low blood pressure without any symptoms means negligible health concerns. However, symptoms indicate inadequate blood flow to the heart, brain, and other vital organs, which needs to be treated as soon as possible.
Hypotension is a condition in which blood pressure in the arteries gets abnormally low. In some cases, the blood pressure becomes so low that it fails to reach all the body organs. The ideal reading level for blood pressure is more than 120 over 80 but less than 140 over 90 (120/80-140/90). When either number is below the ideal reading level, the blood pressure is considered lower than normal.
