Welcome to healthcare Magic,

There are many causes of Bradycardia. First we should find out the reasons for the bradycardia. It will be confirmed by taking ECG,whether she has any heartblocks which is causing the symptoms.

Other things we should consider is

Any drugs she is using for hypertension like beta-blockers?
Any electrolyte disturbances
Thyroid abnormalities
SA node or AV node dysfunction

I suggest you to consult a Cardiologist ASAP.
