Doctor : How can i help you ?
User : hi, i have wpw, and recently monitored my heart rate while excersizing heavily and it hit a max of 226bpm, I am fit and 32yo, should i be concerned it is this high?
Doctor : yes, it is high
User : but is it dangerous? i felt fine whilst excersizing..
Doctor : its a expected reading in the syndrome
Doctor : but the rate has to be below 200 for the perfusion to take place proficiently
User : what does that mean?
Doctor : perfusion means the supply of the blood to the organs
User : could it be damaging to my body if it repeatidly hits 200+ ?
Doctor : it should be optimal , and it happens only when blood enters and leaves the organ at a slow rate
Doctor : it should not be over 200 constantly
User : ok thanks
Doctor : occasional is ok
