The First Treatment When Someone Faints Due To Low Blood Pressure?
Thank you, I want to ask. I have had a stroke for 2 years but my limbs can still function and are consuming some obt HT and nerves. Incidentally indeed from dlu have a history of hypertension. Yesterday my father, on the mlm day fell in the bathroom, in a state of falling my father was still literate but when on pat did not respond to anything after a few minutes he just responded, after being tensioned TD 100/80. If such a situation is my father’s condition why is it? Is it just ordinary hypotension or what? Because when it is checked the pulse is weak. And if the incident recurs the first treatment what to do?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, fainting can be caused by many possibilities. Hypotension can indeed be one of the causes (considering your father is also taking antihypertensive drugs). However, it is also necessary to consider other possible causes, for example:
heart rhythm disorders
heart valve disorders
TIA (transient ischemic attack) or mild stroke
Basically we cannot determine whether the fainting that did occur did occur only because of a temporary drop in blood pressure or because of something else (further tests are needed to find out about it). Therefore, if your father collapses again, you should try to bring your father to the doctor of internal medicine to further explore the cause. Your doctor may recommend doing an EKG or heart record, echocardiography or ultrasound of the heart, as well as blood tests to look for further causes. If there are no other problems, your father's doctor may adjust the hypertension medication given if it is felt that the drug is causing hypotension in your father.
When your father collapses, you just need to make sure to bring your father to a safe place (do not cause the risk of further injury to your father or those around you who help your father), make sure your father's airway is good and your father is also still breathe well. Do not give anything to drink or eat before consciousness is completely recovered.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
