Low BP after Bypass surgery

  Sir my father suffers from low BP after bypass surgery. He was a regular smoker and drinker before the surgery. he is still in the ICU. Costs are escalating. Doctors cannot come up with an explanation. Any suggestions will be welcome please help
Dear Aditya
There are several causes of low blood pressure in the ICU. He could have a weak heart. He could also have a fluid accumulation around the heart. He could be dehydrated. He could have a serious infection in his blood. As you can see, there are several possibilities, which are potentially serious.
I hope this is useful. Feel free to write back with further questions. Good luck.
