Could be.: Very high pulse and low BP is a harbinger of shock. Could also be associated with vasovagal reaction - the typical "swoon." everything needs to be interpreted in context, but in general this combo signals that something ain't right. It is not dangerous in and of itself, but underlying problem needs correction.
