Depends on cause: Have to know exactly what type of heart rhythm you have to be able to say how to fix it. If its just fast, but regular, common causes include anxiety, hyperthyroidism, and dehydration. If it comes only in discrete episodes, common causes include panic attack, and less commonly genetic heart rhythm problems, or rumors that make adrenaline.

Urine metabolite WU.: You seem to have a high blood pressure for no other issues. This might be a catecholamine producing lesion in your body called a pheochromocytoma. This does have other symptoms, like sweating, headaches, palpitations, and weight loss, but the biggest thing is pronounced hypertension. It might also mean the BP meds need more time.

Same as elevated BP: Widened pulse pressure is a marker of cardiovascular mortality. Must be evaluated in context of other "blood pressures" systolic, diastolic and mean bp. Must figure personal characteristics such as height and known atherosclerotic stiffness. If pulse pressure is 120 you must have HTN and this should be treated down to goal. Once that is done your pulse pressure may not be elevated at all. ...Read more

To be perfectly accurate when reporting beats per minute one should measure or a minute, but most will measure for 15 seconds and multiply by four.

Depends on equipment: How to take a pulse depends on the equipment and the technique: whether it is your ear to the chest wall, your fingers to a pulse point, or a piece of medical equipment. The most accurate pulse taken without machinery is the one closest to the heart, or the place where the pulse is best felt or heard. For accuracy, the pulse should be checked for at least 15 seconds in a row, purists say 60 secs ...Read more
