What s the name of the device they always show in movies and shows and stuff where it s a bobbing red line that generate peaks to measure heart rate? Then usually when someone dies, it s just a solid red line.
Hello, my name is Maxine and I am 18 years old. I recently went to hospital for suspected appendicitis ( turned out to be a grumbling appendix ) and the nurse measured my heart rate twice through out the day. My heart rate was 215.. Then dropped to 90, then straight back up to 200.. I had done nothing but sitting on my hospital bed, no exercise, nothing.. Is a heart rate of 200 odd dangerous ? I also have bad palpitations.. Please can you give me a clue as to what is wrong..? Thank you
Hi, I have a question about recovery heart rate. I find this a bit confusing. I am a 33 year old male who only does weighttraining, so no cardio . I m actually affraid to do cardio. My question is this. When I get my heartrate up and make it stay there for a short period of time (2-5minutes), then my recovery heart rate is great. I get my heartrate up to 150or160, and after one minute it s around 120 to drop below 100 after two minutes. BUT, when I do cardio for 30 minutes (which I almost never do), and I measure my heartrate afterwards, it s also 150, but it doesn t go down the first minute. So my recovery heart rate is terrible after long sessions. It starts slowing down after a couple of minutes, but this goes very slow. It returns back to normal after about an hour. With normal I mean around ten beats higher than my resting pulse, which is 50-55. Is this because there s something wrong with my heart, or is it because my body is trained for short outbursts and not endurance. Thx in advance p.s. I ve had several ekg s, thorax photo s, blood tests. All came back normal.
I am a 23 year old female, studying medicine. For past 8 months, i have been having some episodes of heart 'dysfunctions' that now have turned constant. I need help in knowing what is the condition. It started last may when one day i started feeling so weak that i just could not get up and was having a splitting headache, when i measured my BP was 90/55mmHg ( before it was always 120/80mmHg). I was having palpitations, bradycardia at times, tachycardia at times, extreme weakness, sweating ( especially on scalp) after sleeping after headache. I was also having light sleep. Slowly, these episodes became constant. Now I am feeling weak all times, light headed if sitting or standing for long, headache (thumping with constant heaviness), inability to sleep, tightness in chest, chest pain sometimes, tachycardia at any normal activity (walking, doing some tidy up), BP is still low. I also get dry cough on breathing sometimes. So i got a holter done for 24 hours, got following: - sinus tachycardia( 110- 120) almost all day with some normal rate in between, my heart rate dropped to 50 in middle of night ( reason causing me to wake up from sleep and not to sleep again) and it remained like that for 3 hours - average pulse -81 - my heart rate jumped to 179 per min when i climbed stairs ( 9 floors, easily climbed by others), breathing became laboured, headache with blacking out sensations ( i did not faint though) - I have some abnormalities in lead I, II and III ( looks like left axis deviation as lead I is showing highest peaks and is moving away from III ) even the avL and avF looks weird, QTc>450ms is 47%, no ST deviation, no T wave abnormalities I also have tachypnea (26-28 per min) and accentuation of Pulmonary part of second heart sound. I also have slight edema on my feet ( bluish tinge) I also did a blood work up, I do not have thyroid problems or anemia I need some advice on what i might be having, so as to proceed further on treatment.
I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
Hi:) I am 19 years old girl-normal weight going to thin. Non-smoker,non-drinker,never used drugs.
My problem is the fast heart rate. I get tired so easily. Mine heart rate in rest is ussually normal min 70 max 90. But problem is when i am standing up-it start to jump and raise up the tahycardia to 150. Then i feel fatique and dizziness,weakness in legs and arms. Even i can't walk anymore,it beats so fast so i lost my breathe and i need to sit. After sit it gets calm for 5 min.
I did all blood analizys and they all came back normal. I checked heart with ecg,holter monitor and echo,and doctors here said that everything is ok with heart. Another thing is my bp which is 90/60 generally. Isn't it wired to have low bp and high hr?
I am in big worry and i ask for help as soon as it is possible:)
my blood pressure is 138 over 82 and my heart rate is 56 - my heart rate hardly ever reaches 60 beats when resting and bp is normally 116 over 72 - should i be worried about slow heart rate i am not at all fit athletic - i am a 55 year old woman with a history of sarcoidosis
