oil pressure

I just replaced my alternator and I'm getting a low oil pressure indicator; is that related? How do I confirm low oil pressure and any remedy?

only way to check oil pressure is to install mechanical gauge. could you possibly have bumped and/or broken the oil pressure sender, people do it all the time changing the oil filter.
