welcome to HCM!

I have gone through your query and from my clinical experince I can say that keeping in mind the normal BP of your husband- 130/80 , the reading of 115/47 is actually low, more over there was associated weakness, which almost rules out that it was a machine error.
Had I been at your place, I would take him to a doctor, preferably a cardiologist, and get his BP, ECG, done to rule out any cause for the same.

It will also be good that you get his routine blood tests done- blood counts, lipid profile, sugar levels, liver and kidney function test, and thyroid levels.

there is a problem which occurred only once, so please donot worry much, but do see a doctor and get him examined.

Hope the reply is helpful
