Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. The other expert has opted out so ill quicikly answer this question for you.
Actually this BP by itself is not worrisome HOWEVER if she does develop symptoms during these episodes then it would need to be corrected. The systolic (upper reading) of 103 is not very low but the diastolic number (lower reading) of 53 is slightly low. Now if she develops any of the following symptoms then this low BP HAS to be treated, these would include,
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pains
- Blurring of vision
- Weakness or numbness in the limbs
- Slurred speech
Infact if she develops any of these symptoms then she would need to be taken to the ER and get an EKG done.
Regarding what can be done to raise the BP, you can try giving her an increased amount of plain water along with electrolyte rich fluids like gatorade. Additionally when the BP drops try raising her legs while having her lie down, that will cause more blood to return to the heart and improve her BP.
But the underlying cause for this HAS to be determined ESPECIALLY if she has the symptoms i have mentioned above.
Do you have any more questions?
