What Are Causes Of Bradycardia In The Neonate
Premature or normal: The heart rate is faster in the new born so that under 100 is usually considered to be bradycardia although that would be normal in an adult. Premature infants commonly have episodes of bradycardia and also apnea so that they not uncommnly end up on a home monitor/alarm. Rates below 100 are common and unless the rate is dropping below 60 it is unlikely a problem. Dr. Might recommend alarm though. ...Read more
Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
Why the overpressure on the anterior fontanelle by neonatal brain ultrasound cause bradycardia of the neonate?
Cushing reflex: Increased intracranial pressure from any cause at any age & decreased blood flow to certain parts of the brain can cause Cushing's triad: increased blood pressure, irregular breathing, & bradycardia. Since a neonate's skull bones aren't fused, increased pressure causes the fontanelle to bulge. Doctors will determine the cause - hydrocephalus, bleeding, infection, etc. & reduce the pressure ASAP. ...Read more
Causes of bradycardia in pt. On mechanical ventilator for last 40days consider now ventilatory dependant was intubated for extensive mi?
Bradycardia: Medications and damage which occurred secondary to the mi would be my top choices. ...Read more
It depends: Bradycardia indicates that the heart rate is too slow (< 60 BPM in adults). It may be associated with a normal electrical impulse (such as sinus bradycardia in a well-trained athlete or during sleep) or an arrhythmia (abnormal electrical impulse). Some of the more common abnormal rhythms associated with bradycardia include atrioventricular block, sick sinus syndrome, and junctional rhythm. ...Read more
Many: Things such as hypothyroid or conduction system disease or excellent cardiovascular fitness. If symptomatic please get evaluated by a physician. ...Read more
Trying to find a cause for my sons bradycardia 40 -45. Can vit d deficiency cause it? His is 10.
Many possible causes: I would recommend that your son see a pediatric cardiologist for this issue, if he has not already. Vit d deficiency is not known to cause this problem, but many people have this issue and need supplementation. If your son only has this bradycardia for a portion of the day, and otherwise has a normal rhythm and heart rate response to exercise, no treatment is probably necessary. ...Read more
For 2.5 years have suffered with tachycardia daily/nightly. Past two weeks have had bradycardia (as low as 38bpm). Strange? What can cause this?
Brady/tachy: Details including ECG matter in differentiating several potential causes, you are strongly urged to further evaluation ...Read more
Bradycardia: This depends upon the age of the patient -child vs adult, and health status of the patient. Generally speaking, the most common causes of bradycardia are issues with the conducting system in the heart caused by heart disease and aging, medications causing bradycardia, and certain medical conditions distinct from heart disease can produce this as well. ...Read more
Probably not: Valsartan, also called Diovan (valsartan) is an "arb" (angiotensin ii receptor antagonist) typically used for the management of hypertension and congestive heart failure. The most common side effects are dizziness and lightheadedness, but not bradycardia. Another cause of bradycardia is more likely. ...Read more
Normal or abnormal: Could be normal if physically fit as in athletes due to high parasympathetic tone. Abnormal sinus bradycardia could be due to degeneration of the cells in the sinus node, certain medications such as beta blockers, Diltiazem or verapamil and sinus node ischemia (insufficient blood flow). ...Read more
Bradycardia: It depends on many factors. Such as your age, how long you have had the bradicardia etc. Is the pulse less then 50? Are you a runner. You should have an ekg to determine the rhythm and the rate, is there a bbb. Should at least see a physician to have an exam. ...Read more
31 f had echo showed mild left ventricular enlargement. Ef 60%. all else normal. Never high bp. Have non symptomatic bradycardia. Cause?
Told I need a pacemaker to treat bradycardia. Recently found out I've had long term exposure to mold. Could that be the cause of the bradycardia?
Low likelihood: It's possible for toxins to cause that symptom and certain molds are among the ones considered, but correction efforts are your issue now. It's good to avoid mold! Now, follow the treatment plan to deal w/ your heart. Unless you have an air-tight, high $ law suit re the mold - the causes are not foremost now. ...Read more
Medication: A slow heart rate can be normal in fit individuals at rest. Many medications, notably beta blockers, slow the heart rate. A slow heart rate can also be due to disease of the av node, which conducts impulses from the atria to the ventricles. This can be due to scarring from heart attack or aging, and is seen in some infections such as lyme disease and chagas disease. ...Read more
Correct: As a marathon runner I had a resting heart rate of 38-40. ...Read more
No: Look for another cause. Especially if you are physically fit and feel well, bradycardia may be a non-problem. ...Read more
I generally have normal bradycardia (pulse between 55 and 60) however weekly experience morning pulse rush between 90 and 110 which causes anxiey -?
Probably normal: The normal heart rate ranges from 60 to 100. The heart rate is very sensitive to changes in mood, level of wakefulness, levels of adrenaline or acetylcholine (anti-adrenaline) in the body among so many other factors. If you have no symptoms with a heart rate of 110 than no worries. Symptoms to look for: shortness of breath, chest pain or dizziness ...Read more
Yes: Guanfacine can cause bradycardia in rare instances - approximately 3% of patients experience this. Bradycardia can be more pronounced when Guanfacine is used in combination with certain other medications, such as a beta blocker. It is important to discuss potential side effects with your doctor, because for certain patients, certain risks may be outweighed by potential benefits, and vice-versa. ...Read more
Hypertension (HTN) can resulting in ischemia and abnormality of the conduction system of the heart which may slow heart rate.
After a head injury HTN and a slow heart rate are signs that there may be increase in intra-cranial pressure.
There is also a phenomena where correcting a slow heart rate might resolve HTN see link below.
