Are there any tests I can have to determine whether my heart is OK ?

and while i was under my heart beat was alarmingly fast, once the operation was over i was in recovery for over 40 minutes due to the heart beating so fast. Why is this? and also are there any tests i can have to determine whether my heart is ok.

maybe your heart was beating fast because your body had just been cut open by a foregin object as people stuck their fingers n other objects all inside you as you were laying there with all these machines hooked up to you and most likely all types of medicine going into your body most likely through a needle stuck into your vein.....if i was your heart i would be beating reallly fast too

Hi i am 30 year old male who was hospitalized 3 months ago for atrial fib. Had the whole gambit of tests and all seemed ok. I was put on beta blockers then a heart monitor a month later for massive palpations and rapid beat. i was put on another med after to regulate heart rate. Now i still experience palpataions and i can feel when they are about to happen. also extreme fatigue and some weakness. What is the issue here? i do smoke but not massive smoker. I did gain 20 pounds since the hospital stay which i have never been able to do. Wonder what id happenin here.

Recently , for last seven months or so , after reaching my office in morning ( after climbing two story , I started feeling fast breathing rate , which continues for two minutes or so . TREATING THIS AS A +ve SIGNAL OF ing problems in HEART , I WENT for Laboratory Tests to fing Whether There is any danger / risk of HEART ATTACK ? All TESTS LIKE ECG , ULTRASCOUND , ECHO-CARDIOGRAPHY etc. WERE OK and normal rxcept results of TRADE MILL TEST ( which according to Doctor , indicates medium Risk ) . The test continued for 15 minutes or so and I was feeling OK during Trade Mill Test except in last two to three minutes I felt high breathing rate . NOW , doctors says for ANGIOGRAPHY for confirmation and further says that most probably STUNT has to be implanted . ______MY QUESTION IS ---I WANT TO AVOID ANGIOGRAPHY AND IMPLANTATION OF STUNT ?

My uncle has just had his 2nd triple bypass and on his 2nd day of recovery he went into cardiac arrest twice! the firs time he lost o2 for 10 mins, they have him resting now for 24 hours. He is stable at this time but his echo showed changes with an ef of 50% to an ef of 25%. I was wondering what were the chances of his ef increasing and how could we make that happen?

Dear Doctor, In May 2011, this happened with me for the first time when I was not at home and was away for work. I was asleep and at night around 02:30 I started feeling uncomfortable in sleep. My eyes opened and I started feeling breathless. Also was feeling like I was about to lose consciousness. Luckily that day I had my colleague with me in the next room. I summoned his help. By that time I started sweating and my body was going cold. Suddenly my colleague gave me some sugar and a glass of water. After taking water and sugar I started gaining consciousness. Immediately within 30 seconds, I felt loose motion. I toilet I also vomited. After all this going on for almost 20-30 minutes, I was frightened. Slowly my body started breathing normally, but whole night this incident didn t allow me to sleep. Next day I consulted doctor, who told me that this happened due to dehydration and lack of enough sleep. Now again yesterday night I was having cold and fever. My whole nose and ear area was choked. I took Paracetamol, sprayed some Otravin, wore sweater, turned off the fan and went to sleep. Within 60 minutes my fever was gone, but I was not able to sleep. At around 03:00 night I started feeling that I am not able to breathe properly. I opened the door and went in balcony, but I was not gaining breathe. I didn t wanted to repeat the May 2011 scene so I immediately rushed to hospital. There first of all my heart beat rate was checked. Then blood pressure and finally blood sugar level. All found ok. There doctor gave me some breathing treatment with medicine to clear cold and help me breathe properly. The doctor asked me to take Taxim-O and Levocelvi....(something, I cannot read) My paternal history is 4/5 siblings (my father and his brother and sisters) has history of diabetes. My father passed away at the age of 49 due to cardiac arrest. This is the reason I am a bit worried and do not want to take chances with my health. I want to know whether the cause told in both the incidents are true? Shall I go for any other check-up? (The heart, blood pressure and sugar reports were normal in both incidents) What shall I do in emergency if this happens with me again?

My grandfather went into cardiac arrest and they stayed the front to parts of the brain is damaged but the rest is working. He has gone through a numerous surgery and the very first one was on his gallbladder which went wrong but the doctor did not tell us and the doc preformed another surgery to fix his mistake, which then the doctor cut the wrong artier and was transferred to UCSF where the surgeon and doctor told us my grandfather would only have a 2 days to live if we wouldn't have brought-en him to UCSF. My question is if my grandfather is breathing on a ventilation and his hart rate is stable is there any chances he'll get better is there anything we can do?
