EKG anxiety: Your bodies flight or fight response is speeding up your heart so you are better prepared to fight or run when whatever it is makes you anxious. Discuss with team.

Basics: Your system has many safety features that affect your heart rate. When your brain perceives danger, hormones are released to speed your heart so muscles will have more oxygen if you need to re-locate quickly or fend off a threat. Anxiety will trigger the same response. This means your body responds normally to the messages it receives.
