What is dangerously low blood pressure?

About half of American adults have high blood pressure, but low blood pressure may also be cause for concern, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Shaline Rao, MD, a cardiologist at NYU Langone Hospital, Long Island, explains that one’s blood pressure should be kept at levels that are “not too high and not too low,” but in a “healthy range which is typically between 90/60 to 140/80.” 

A healthy blood pressure level is essential because blood pressure that’s too high, also called hypertension, puts one at risk for heart attack, heart disease, or stroke. Blood pressure that’s too low, also called hypotension, is less dangerous and life-threatening, but can still pose health risks.
