Adult vital signs can vary, according to age, sex, weight, exercise tolerance and physical conditioning. In-other-words, what is normal for you, may not be normal for me, so if your blood pressure is 88/56 and you are alert and oriented and not showing any symptoms of hypotension, like dizziness, confusion, or heart palpitations, then 88/56 may be normal for you. I, on the other hand, may not be able to tolerate a blood pressure that low, and my doctor may recommend that this blood pressure be treated with fluids or medication to increase it.
Remember, if you have any questions about your vital signs, it is recommended that you see your doctor. Read more about normal adult vital signs.
