there is no need to worry,normal blood pressure for any individual is 140/ have written only systolic bp that is 170 which is high,.you need to see your doctor and he will titrated the dose and bp will become normal.low pulse rate could be due to some medicines he might be taking.Get himself examined for 2D echo,and other blood tests,he will be doing fine.Reduce his salt intake,avoid high fat foods, and ask him to take walk regularly.
