Yes?: I not sure why she needed surgery but if it was an emergency you should be concerned.However it is not very uncommen that BP will need to be supported in the perioperative period in the elderly especially if they have comorbidity and the majority eventually do well.

100/60: After an open heart surgery, a BP of <100/60 will start to get some attention but is not an emergency.
