Is it worrying that my grandad's blood presure is 106/68 and 65 pulse?
My grandad's blood presure seems very low.
The result was...
Is this worrying?
Thank you for your relieve.
That is normal and immaculate but information like an EKG is missing.... CBC'S and CBC ANA's are missing too. Also no mention of bradycardia or arythmias. There is some much more than just blood pressure. A real problem beside blood pressure can be noticed when its too high or too low. Low being close to myself 97/53 with a 48 Pulse. I get dizzy often when I jump from sitting to standing. My issue is not fixable due to the fact that my electrical firings have changed ever since I had encephalitis (brain inflammation) 2 years ago as an allergic repercussion to a medicine. The inflammation in the brain also caused so oodles misfires that I wound up with all my valves reguritating... classification leaky pulmonic, aortic, tricuspid and mitral valves. I used to be 118/70. Then, after inflammation, I stuttered consistently like a motor and could not walk due to shortage of communication and over communication between Central Nervous System and Brain. I looked like end stage Parkinsons. Now 2 Years later I enjoy to live with the residual damage from the inflammation. I am sure they did a complete blood workup on your grandfather if he was opinion ill and they were checking his heart so get adjectives the paperwork from the doctor or from the medical records department from the hospital so you have a better idea of what the problem really is. Also your sound out does not state that he has a problem... just that you are worrying. Source(s): too many check workups on myself.
Your grand dad's blood pressure and pulse rate are normal.
Most normal blood pressures go down in the range of 90/60 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) to 130/80 mm Hg. But a significant drop, even as little as 20 mm Hg, can cause problems for some race.
Orthostatic hypotension is brought on by a sudden change in body position, usually when shifting from lying down to standing. This type of hypotension usually lasts solitary a few seconds or minutes.
Possible Complications of hypotension:
* Injury from falls due to fainting
Falls are particularly dodgy for older adults. Fall-related injuries, such as a broken hip, can dramatically impact a person's quality of duration.
Severe hypotension starves your body of oxygen, which can damage the heart, brain, and other organs. This type of hypotension can be life threatening if not in a jiffy treated.
Depending on the reason for your low blood pressure, you may be able to take correct steps to help reduce or even prevent symptoms. Some suggestions include:
* Drink more water, smaller amount alcohol. Alcohol is dehydrating and can lower blood pressure, even if you drink in moderation. Water, on the other hand, combats dehydration and increases blood volume.
* Follow a healthy diet. Get adjectives the nutrients you need for good health by focusing on a mixture of foods, including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean chicken and fish. If your doctor suggests increasing your sodium intake but you don't like closely of salt on your food, try using natural soy sauce — a whopping 1,200 milligrams of sodium per tablespoon — or adding dry soup mixes, also loaded near sodium, to dips and dressings.
* Go slowly when changing body positions. You may be able to reduce the dizziness and lightheadedness that crop up with low blood pressure on standing by taking it easy when you move from a prone to a standing position. Before getting out of bed in the morning, breathe richly for a few minutes and then slowly sit up before standing. Sleeping with the team leader of your bed slightly elevated also can help fight the effects of gravity. If you begin to return with symptoms while standing, cross your thighs in a scissors fashion and squeeze, or put one foot on a ledge or bench and lean as far forward as possible. These maneuvers encourage blood to flow from your legs to your heart.
* Eat small, low-carb meals. To help prevent blood pressure from dropping sharply after meal, eat small portions several times a day and limit high-carbohydrate foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and bread. Drinking caffeinated coffee or tea next to meals may temporarily raise blood pressure, in some cases by as much as 3 to 14 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). But because caffeine can explanation other problems, check with your doctor before increasing your caffeine intake. Source(s): http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/…
Sound great to me, I wish my bp was as low.

You have nothing to worry roughly speaking :D hes going to be just fine ! :D Source(s): im a nurse
They are both acceptably normal results.On their own they give no hints as to his health,fitness or the insufficiency of same.

To quote a recent answer of my own ..he has yet again chock-a-block his answer with the usual list of frightening tosh,please do not allow it to scare you.He seem to enjoy producing inappropriate and alarming nonsense as if he receive some perverse pleasure by producing panic and consternation.He is,as he says in his profile : ' not a medical professional.' Source(s): GP for more years than I precision to remember
usual blood pressure is 120/80 so sounds ok as long as he is active he is ok
If this is an average reading then it's perfectly full-bodied and normal, however this dosen't mean he is healthy.
Normal heart rate is 60-100, truly normal isn't the right word, average is the correct term. Optimal BP is <120/80. The lower the better basically. Source(s): Cardiac Nurse
