Hello and welcome to Healthcaremagic.com
A bounding pulse is a strong and forceful pulse.
•A bounding pulse can often be seen in arteries that are close to the skin.
•A bounding pulse may be a sign of excessive fluid in the circulation (fluid overload).
•A rapid heart rate
) and bounding pulse can occur together or separately.
•A rapid pulse can be a symptom of arrhythmia
A bounding pulse and rapid heart rate both occur in the following conditions or events:
A bounding pulse can result from fluid overload due to heart failure
, chronic kidney
failure, and other conditions. It may also occur in aortic valve
A thin body habitus can contribute to the visibility of your heart beat. There is a point on the thorax between the 5th & 6th rib where we expect to see the heart beat or feel the heart beat, especially if the individual is lying down or leaning forward.
Because your EKG is normal, as well as your stress test
and echo, your heart beat is normal for you. A good pulse rate and blood pressure also points toward a healthy heart.
Contact your family physician if you experience a sudden, severe, or persistent increase in the intensity or rate of your pulse. This is particularly important when this increase is accompanied by other symptoms, or when it is not relieved by resting for a few minutes.
