Beta blockers can lower BP as well as make the heart beat slower, but this is a question best answered by his doctor. I'm sure the doctor is aware of his low BP and if he is not you should make it your business to make him aware. I'm curious though, why is your father getting a pacemaker?

Since I got my pacemaker, I don't pass out anymore! That's a blessing in itself.
