Low blood pressure
Today we want to tell you about low blood pressure – in other words, hypotension. For hypotension medicine and less attention because such a functional state is not yet recognized as a disease. Meanwhile, the blood delivers to the cells the required amount of oxygen and nutrients, does not remove fully the products of metabolism. By itself, the hypotension does not lead to such serious consequences as ischemia, heart attack, stroke – like hypertension. Arterial hypertension is accompanied by palpitations, low blood sugar, fainting. Accompanied by other somatic diseases. Some healthy people go through their whole lives with reduced pressure. But in everyday life they do not tolerate heat, especially in the bath, sometimes lose consciousness due to a sudden change of position from horizontal to vertical and great feel during exercise.
Hypotension is often seen in young people. With age often low pressure is changed to increased. It is noticed that people with low blood pressure live longer.
Sudden loss of consciousness associated with lack of oxygen and other nutrients in the brain when the body is unable to compensate for the decrease in blood pressure. The person feels perfectly at rest and during exercise, when the required increase in oxygen feels weak and loses consciousness.
In old age it is easy to lose consciousness due to nervous tension, coughs, when you strain (during bowel movement), when urinating. In older people often manifest stagnation in the veins and in the lower part of the body accumulates a lot of blood. This causes low blood pressure and lead to fainting, because the blood flow to the brain does not have time to recover. This is a considerable drop of pressure is not a disease as such but a manifestation of the inability of blood vessels to maintain pressure in the norm.
Harbingers of syncope are dizziness, weakness, nausea, impaired vision. In older people, fainting may be the result of several diseases that prevent the heart and blood vessels to adjust blood pressure.
Patients prone to low blood pressure and fainting, often need to do a cardiogram, and biochemical analysis of blood. People who is in the supine position, it is necessary to gradually increase the seat time and the opportunity to move around the apartment. You need to drink more water.
Patients with arterial hypotension should be systematically engaged in physical exercises, to tone up the muscular system, not to gain extra weight. Have physically strong people rarely falling blood pressure, and very rarely fainting.
