What causes low blood pressure?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Steven Ajluni
34 years experience in Cardiology
Low volume/vasodil: Either low cardiac output due to low or high hr's/low stroke volume or excessive vasodilation. Hormonal problems (like adrenal insuff) could rarely be a cause. Infection/sepsis/anemia or acute blood loss, dehydration, or cardiac pump/rhythm problems could cause.
