With a high rate the heart can not pump efficiently. Are you sure that is a resting rate? That is very high for a resting rate without anything pathological going on. EDIT: Yes, the "normal range" is 60-100, however 94 is still considered high for a resting rate and warrants further examination. What is his rate with exercise? Is he overweight or have health problems or is he relatively healthy? Has his pulse rate always been in the 90's or has it changed over the years? IF his high resting rate is a new developement, then there could be an underlying disease process going on. IF he has always had a "high-normal" resting rate then don't worry about it, his heart is pumping just fine.

I have a high resting pulse rate (95-100) even though I work out five days a week, eat properly (loads of fruits and veg). my BMI is 23.6 and my blood pressure is usually 106-115/70-80. I ve gone to the doctor twice and she doesn t seem that concerned. Should I be? The lowest I am is about 80.

What Dr. in Lubbock can we have and Echocadiagram done in the office? I have a 75 year old male with heart failure that the pulse ox machine says his heart rate is between 30 and 65 beats. The cardiologist says that his heart is beating 114 beats a min. It is just that the first beat is hard and the other 2-5 are a slight beat. Enough to pick up on the 12 lead but not enough to pick up in a pulse. His feet are swelling and when we elevatethem the swelling goes down after 48 hrs but his lungs fill. When his feet swell they up his Lasix to 60 mg but it does not work for 4-5 days. Then run run run. Where can we have an echo done in Clovis, NM or Lubbock Texas?
