What Causes Low Blood Pressure And Low Heart Rate
Hypotension is defined as "low blood pressure". Blood pressure is measured as two numbers and expressed as systolic blood pressure (sbp) / diastolic blood pressure (dbp). The sbp is the pressure that is generated when the heart squeezes. Dbp occurs when the heart relaxes. 120/70 is considered normal in adults. Less than 100/60 (of either number) can ...Read more

On Percocet,accidentally bite a little of pill 10/325 while taking it. Send him to hospital with low blood pressure and low heart rate, what happened?
Opiod overdose: Opiod narcotics have several analgesic (anti pain) effects, however, they also slow our heart and our breathing (cardiopulmonary repression). An overdose can cause death because a person can potentially stop breathing and one's heart can stop. Thankfully, there are medicines like narcan (naloxone) which block the effects of opioids and can reverse the effects if the patient can be helped in time. CPR 1st. ...Read more
Heart condition: This is likely a heart condition that needs to be evaluated asap. When the heart is not working efficiently or effectively, the heart may not pump as fast as it should or as strong as it should. This will limit blood flow equaling low blood pressure. This will cause less blood flow going to the brain and hence causing dizziness. ...Read more
Why do I experience a low heart rate with normal/high blood pressure and a high heart rate with low blood pressure? Thanks
No Easy Answers from: A distance. Everything you describe is a behavior/sign/symptom, none causal. Heart rate, strength of contraction (both heart functions) ; BP (mean arteriole resistance) are all controlled 24/7, split-second by split-second, by our brain/mind at below conscious, autonomic nervous system level. While alterations in heart muscle size & function (usual doc focus) are also a factor, these are secondary ...Read more
My 18 yo son has am arachnoid cyst in posterior fossa. He has a low heart rate and low blood pressure. What treatment is available?
Low blood pressure, lack of urination, no appetite, heart flutters and pounds at times, tingling in left arm, low heart rate, 4 lead EKG showed fine?
Many issues: You mention several symptoms. Some, all, or none of them may be related. With regard to heart "flutters, " "pounds, " and "low heart rate, " you should do a 30-day heart monitor so that your symptoms can be correlated to your heart rhythm. A "normal" ekg is not helpful if you were not having symptoms at the moment it was taken. Other symptoms can be investigated after heart is sorted out. ...Read more
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
Abnormal blood pressure is a symptom in which a person's blood pressure is much higher or much lower than it should be for his age and body size. If either the systolic (upper number) pressure or the diastolic (lower number) pressure is not in the normal range, then the ...Read more
