What does it mean when someone has a low blood pressure and a slow pulse?

Dr. William Lizarraga
Internal Medicine
In brief: Nothing by itself
Pulse and BP are just numbers, and mean almost nothing in isolation.
More important is the patient...Are they sick? Well? Dizzy? Dehydrated? Feel great? Just had a heart attack? Granted, if a pulse or BP are too low, then doctors might be concerned no matter how they looked, but more important is the "rest of the story".
