Call 911 and while you wait for the EMT's have your mother lie down immediately so the heart can pump the blood to all parts of the body.

Please keep us posted! And yes, if she is on hospice, call them with the numbers. Otherwise it is a 911 call!

What I mean is, while yes, if you have thin arms, you may need a pediatric cuff, bp that low in an elderly person who is feeling light-headed warrants a call to 911 so that emts can evaluate.
