Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Do you mean how low can blood pressure go before a person loses consciousness? Or dies? It depends on the person.

Low blood pressure is called hypotension. Hypotension or low blood pressure is 90/60 or lower

Because the pressure exerted is lower than normal with hypotension, vital organs such as the heart, brain, or kidneys, for example, do not receive enough blood. Low blood pressure may cause numerous symptoms including such things as dizziness, nausea, lack of concentration, fainting, vision problems, cold skin, clammy skin, fatigue, thirst, rapid breathing, depression, or nausea. In some cases, low blood pressure can be life-threatening.

There are some people, such as athletes , who tend to have naturally low blood pressure and don’ exhibit any symptoms or adverse side effects. However, it’s important to note that low blood pressure is frequently a symptom of an underlying medical condition.

If you are looking for an actual number, we cannot provide that for you. You did not mention how low blood pressure can before before a specific event happened. Even if you did, all people react differently to low blood pressure.
