Hello dear. Heart beat of 72 per minute is good. If the blood pressure is below 140/90 mm Hg, then no need to worry. However if he is having any symptom like chest pain or dizziness please visit a doctor.

Hello again. It is normal to have a heartbeat of 72 per min. Normal heartbeat varies between 60 to 100 beats per minute.
Blood pressure should be between 100 to 140 by 60 to 90 mm Hg.
However if patient is symptomatic for any dizziness, vertigo or chest pain or palpitations he must visit a doctor.
