Clarify: What does continuous pressure mean ? Did you mean, increased work load, for example with exercise? if so , yes but not Rhythm change, but rate change, the heart rate will increase but the rhythm should be normal (sinus and regular), a change in rhythm is often not normal, though a few premature beats is not considered that abnormal.
