Low Pulse Pressure

Recommended Posts

Our daughter who is chairbound (only 22yo), extreme lack of energy, has had very low pulse pressure. That is the systolic blood pressure minus diastolic blood pressure, and take that number and divide by systolic.

She has been as low as 18% (85/72), and internet says it should be no lower than 25%. Cardiologist seemed unconcerned, but when her pulse pressure is real low, she feels even worse.

Anyone else have thoughts? Does it relate to low preload of the heart and therefore, not enough blood so it lowers stroke volume/cardiac output?

Hi, check with your doctor, but I would be worried more about blood pressure and blood volume than pulse pressure.

Same here!!!! Low pulse pressure and I feel terrible but no doctor has really said much about this when I bring it to their attention.
