How can I find out if my Dad's blood pressure is dangerous?
My dad's blood pressure is 85/50. I know nothing about this and I need to know if this is dangerous or not!! Help please!

yes its much to low

Who took that B.P. ARE you sure it's correct? You best see a Doctor and quick.

He has LOW blood pressure. Its called hypotension. This is good for young athletes, but not older people. If its chronic, its usually not really serious... if it happens suddenly, certain organs are deprived of blood (brain).

That is a little low. Normally when your blood pressure is that low, you experience some symptopms like fainting, going into shock and sometimes heart failure. You may want to call his doctor to find out when you can bring him in or if you can't wait go to a primacare or emergency room.

The cutoff for hypertension(high blood pressure) is 150/100 generally.

Mine runs low 110 for 68 and I am perfectly healthy. Low blood pressure probably assures one of not having a stroke but your dad's is a bit low.

Make sure your bp cuff's gauge is accurate or if you do not wish to visit a urgent care center and your dad is not feeling ill go to Wal-Mart. Their bp machines I have found to be fairly accurate.

If still quite low I would take the former answer's suggestion and get a healthcare professional's advice. Good Luck!

In healthy people, especially athletes, low blood pressure is a sign of good cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) health. But low blood pressure can be a signal of an underlying problem - especially in the elderly. In this population, low blood pressure may cause inadequate blood flow to the heart, brain and other vital organs.

That is low. Is he taking any beta blockers? If so, it may need to be adjusted. The normal BP for an adult is 120-140/60-90. I would keep a log of his blood pressure, so you can see what it's really doing. This will serve as a reference for his Dr. It's normal for it to go up with stress and activity, and to go down when sleeping or after taking medication, but if there is no normalcy, his medication may need to be adjusted.

Please get him checked by a good medical specialist ASAP.

This is low. But I would retake it - most of the time it's user error. If it's still low - go to ER. Fainting, light headedness esp. when he sits up are symptoms of low blood pressure.

Seems a little low. Pulse pressure looks pretty good. When I had low numbers like that Cardiac Rehab would make me drink a cup of water and they would take it again in 10 min. Then they would let me go home ( it always came back up).

Something is dysfunctional here. You either have OCD or he is abusing himself and you think it's up to you to save him.

It is low. Who took the blood pressure? Does your Dad have any medical problems? Is he on medications?

This is on the low side so he should see a doc to be sure things are ok. If he just checked his BP and it was this low have him recheck it in a couple of hours and if it hasn't gone up any then have him see a doc at urgent care right away.

That's kind of low. It depends on a lot of factors, but if he has a regular doctor, call him or her and say what his blood pressure is.

I think your dad is not doing physical exercise, is his job sedentary in nature? does he have symptoms like faintness or giddiness or he gets irritated very soon,does he takes sleeping pills. There are lots of reasons for the above reading.
If your dad is feeling fine with this BP, leave him alone or you can consult a cardiologist for further evaluation.
