Brief Answer: difficult to predict Detailed Answer: Hi, Yes , If left uncontrolled further can cause problem. Now one has to examine him and decide. Each individual reacts differently. Asthma can cause mild to moderate tachycardia when there is acute attack.( but not usually up to 200/ mt) Drugs like salbutamol can cause tachycardia( used for asthma). Hyperthyroidism is another non cardiac cause. Good luck Dr uma
