Is heart rate of 130-140 a cause for concern?
A patient like this can be discharged from ER unless there are other problems
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
Let me assure you that increased heart rate or SVT is not really a cause of concern. You need not worry about it and unless other definite indications are present, there should be no problem in discharging such a patient from the ER.
About the gastroparesis, the things to be done are:
* Take bulk forming laxatives and high fiber diet. This would reinforce the mobility of the gastrointesinal tract and help in relieving the problem.
* Take small but frequent meals.
* Regular physical activity and morning walk is essential.
Hope it helps.
