In brief: Hypotension

Hypotension implies a decreased peripheral vascular resistance, decreased intravascular volume and/or inadequate cardiac force generation in systole.
Normal pressure has adequate amounts of all these to result in a normal pressure range. Decrease in one or all contributes to hypotension.
