    In many countries low blood pressure is regarded as a sign of excellent health, and it is certainly true that it is associated with a good outlook from the point of view of risks of strokes an heart attacks. In others, such as Germany, It is regarded as a disease responsible for symptoms of weakness and fatigue. A survey of 254 healthy Irish bank workers has now looked to see how common it is in the general population. All the subjects wore a 24- hour blood pressure recorder, which obtained readings every 30 minutes throughout the day and night. It was decided to define low blood pressure as the lowest 5 per cent of all the blood pressure readings. This gave levels of 115/70 mm Hg for daytime readings in men, and 105/65 in women (women generally have lower pressures than men). Corresponding nighttime values were 97/56 in men and 92/52 in women. ​
    In both genders, episodes of at least two consecutive readings of low blood pressure (that is below the limits described above) during the day were common, occurring in 59% of women and 43% of men. By definition, 5% of each gender had average levels below the limits. Women with low blood pressure tended to be shorter and to weight less than women with higher pressures, but there was no connection between body size and low blood pressure in then men.
