Hypotension - What Is It?

Sometimes you notice that your blood pressure is far from the norm. Under blood pressure we mean the pressure on the vessels of the blood that circulates. By the way the process of circulation is extremely important while it gives us ability to live; our heart rhythm and frequency of breathing depend on it. Blood comes through arteries (from the heart) and in such a way the pressure appears.

We usually distinguish a person’s pressure with the help of two numbers – the upper and lower, which correspond to systolic and diastolic pressure. There is a certain norm - 120/80. The upper part (systolic indicator) shows us arteries’ and heart muscle blood pressure (while blood is pumped into the arteries). As for the lower part (diastolic indicator) it shows the pressure after the relaxation of the heart muscle. Normally we get higher pressure when heart squeezes and lower in case it relaxes.

In this article we want to talk more about hypotension or LBP. If people suffer from low pressure it means that blood circulates through the vessels very slowly. When such a situation appears, our important organs start suffering from the lack of oxygen and necessary elements. Under these organs we men heart, brain and so on. In case of constant hypotension they may be seriously hurt.

What are the exact numbers of LBP? Maybe you’ll be surprised, but each individual may have various indicators of normal blood pressure. So, in order to recognize hypotension, you shouldn’t look at the indicators but better pay attention at its symptoms and signs.

Is hypotension harmful for the organism?

First of all, we want to mention that any problem connected with blood circulation may be dangerous for the overall health. And LBP can also lead to certain problems with heart (even to a rush) or diseases of the kidney. Sportsmen, those who have physical activity, go in for bodybuilding, don’t smoke, have normal weight are usually more likely to suffer from hypotension. But when the pressure’s indicator becomes too law, people start feeling real discomfort.

How to recognize low pressure?

Believe us, it is not a difficult task. You’ll feel it immediately. In case of hypotension, a person’s brain doesn’t get enough of oxygen and for this reason you may feel the following: headache, oxygen and nutrients, and a person can feel giddiness or some may even lose consciousness.
