I'm not a nurse but work in the medical field. Couple of questions that might help. How old is your husband? What's his usual B.P.? Is he on any medications? Any other medical conditions? Any symptoms like light headiness or fainting?
Of course any advise you get here wont substitute for a Dr. but no harm in getting some input before he sees a Dr.

That is really low pressure. I would call his doctor or just take him to the hospital.

I had this happen a couple of times. I am pretty sure that for me it was tied to dehydration, and I am now pretty vigilant about staying hydrated. It was an absolutely awful experience-my vision was tunneling, the first time I thought I was dying (and the way it felt, I wanted to die) and I was just horribly nauseated and sick. I was at work, and we have a lot of on-staff nurses luckily. The scariest thing for me is that they could not locate my pulse or heart beat.

Because of my heart experience, the first time I ended up in the Emergency Room but at that time they just called it a "vasovagal response" , couldn't find anything wrong with me, and sent me home. The second time I was alone at home and couldn't get to a phone, but at least I knew what it was and didn't panic.

It is an AWFUL feeling and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I hope they can get to the bottom of his problem and get it fixed.

My 85 year old father has this happen occasionally as well. I agree it is related to dehydration and he is stubborn about drinking fluids. He claims he dislikes spending all day in the bathroom
I have also figured out that he is very prone to sinus infections when he has one he has no obvious symptoms other than vertigo and nausea. Last time this happened I told him to tell his doctor he may have a sinus infection and to get an appointment. He went and did indeed have a pretty bad sinus infection which required 21 days of antibiotics. He hasn't had another episode since. I would ask your husband's doctor to examine his nose and sinuses as a possible cause. Hope this helps and he feels better soon.
