A:   Hello,
Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Difficult to pin point the cause but as he had hypotension previously its likely that he may be having again an episode of hypotension. Now that he is already lying down and you have given him salt, hypotension will be mostly taken care of. Look for sweating and increased pulse. Moreover if he complains of chest pain then you need to act and take him to the ER immediately. Otherwise he can keep resting as of now.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Wish you good health!
