Hi,
Thanks for query,
You reversed the numbers,it should be 111/89.
This not low bp.On the contrary it is on higher side.
He requires record of bp measurement for about 10=15 days and then we can have idea about bp.
Measure bp from doctors only.
Ok and bye.

The higher number in blood pressure readings, systolic, is always given first. If I were to assume that you have just reversed the numbers and you mean 111/89, then the bottom reading 89 is high, sitting just below the treatment range. If the numbers you have given are just wrong, and he has low blood pressure, this is harmless and may reduce stroke risk, it is never treated!

Lately I have had low blood pressure once in a while like 4 or 5 times in different occasions, but tonight I did not take the amalodipine because it was lower than 120. Around 3:00a.m. My husband took my blood pressure and it was 84 by 51. I jumped out of bed, I felt ok., my husband gave coffee and I put my legs up and right away went up to 141/85/71. What could it be?

My husband has a history of heart disease. He has an ICD . His blood pressure is running 90/66 to 88/57. He is feeling tired and sorta lazy like. Normally BP runs 108/68 to 100/59. His pulse rate fluxes from 70 to 71. I feel his BP of 90/57 is too low. How can I safely raise is a little. JAK

My 80 year old husband has CHF but has low blood pressure--ex. 90/60 usually. He has two faulty heart valves,but the Dr. says general anesthesia is out of the question. However, he had a successful knee replacement in June 2014. What needs to be done to help him? He has had a heart murmur for over 60 years or more.
