Welcome to Health Care Magic
A resting heart rate above 100 (tachycardia
) is abnormal.
It needs investigation.
Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much coffee, cola) / Thyroid / Medicines like Phenylephrine
, used for ‘cold’ / Salbutamol
, used for asthma / Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine
are notorious to cause the beats.... At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) are responsible!
EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram
/ TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
You must see a doctor. The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.
Wishing speedy recovery
