My mother has High BP for about 6 years, and now she had become very week as she had become older. Now her BP is low on few days or little higher side around 140 on most ocasions. She also has Type 2 diabetes , but it was controlled, and recently its always been too low. infact she had 2 episodes of hypoglycemia in last 2 years, so takes mild tablet only if has eaten sugars. At present she has edema and almost entire body is swollen, also her O2 level cant be measured by oxymeter, so she is given oxygen support via ventilator. Doctors are unable to get any BP reading and pulse is in range of 100 to 110. Her pulse has always been close to 100 for when we had tested her BP over last few years. Doctors are saying that she is having low blood pressure, but no reading of BP can be taken on the ECG monitoring system or BP monitor. She is given 3% sodium IV as she was initially diagonsed to have low sodium. also Vasopressin and Norad IV are being given. She never had Heart attack or serious heart condition apart for High BP . Sodium and vasopresin, norad seems to aggravate water retention, and they wanted to perform dialysis , but again say that its not possible as low BP or no reading for BP. Please provide some suggestions as to what options can be considered. Does no reading on BP monitoring devices be assumed as Low BP at all times. although Pulse is high. Are there alternative medications . Should the focus be on treating the edema and water retention.
