Normal pulse rate is about 70-72. The pulse rate about 116/min is quite harmful as it may damage not only heart but other vital arteries and veins which constitute the circulatory system. Such a condition requires immediate medical consultations. you may visit Narayana Hrudayalaya or Wockhardt Heart Institute situated in bangalore for further references.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
