Adult Asthma Pulse Oximetry Low
2 yr o asthmatic with bronchitis and RSV on inhaled albuterol every 3 hrs. Pulse ox 180/92 and temp 103. Is her heart rate too high even for albut?
Safety of Albuterol: With the numbers you give, I am assuming that the child is being treated in the hospital. If so, with good nursing monitoring, continued use of albuterol should be safe. The heart rate goes up with fever as well as the medication. Children generally tolerate high rates. If the child is not in the hospital, struggling with the numbers you give, he/she certainly should be checked again. ...Read more
Age 67. Bp around 160-170/62 average. Pulse at rest constant low 50s. Is safe to take beta blockers?
None: In an asthmatic under good control none of these measurements should not be effected. ...Read more
High blood pressue averages 175/180. Diastlolic average low 60. Pulse rate average 50 at rest. Have been prescribed 5mg amlodipine . Is this ok? 67
Amlodipine for BP: 70 M BP 180/60 prescribed amlodipine 5 mg. OK? I specialize in high BP. I and guidelines would generally do following but check with ur team. First get a number of readings with home device that is accurate on u. See my checklist. Then if above 140 at your age begin DASH eating plan See my checklist.

How does asthma affect routine measurements? Routine measurements : blood pressure, pulse rate, breathing rate, peak flow, body temperature, how and why?
What causes low resting heart rate and hypotension? 37 yo female with sedentary lifestyle. Very low aerobic stamina.bp 100/56, pulse 38-44.
Age81/M cant cough, heavy lung congestion, aspiration, saturation 95 at 3 units oxygen, BP, ECG, pulse normal. Troubled breathing due to secretions. ?
Heart beat very fast followed by hand shaking? Pulse 94bpm at rest. Blood pressure 90/69. Tsh, t4, T3 (liothyronine) normal. Cbc and differential count is normal too.
Blood Pressure: 117/68
Resting Heart Rate Sitting: 75bpm - 85bpm
Exercise everyday. Friend's sitting resting heart: 70bpm - 75bpm why? Heart Disease?
Variation: There can be a lot of variation between individuals resting heart rates. In general, the more "fit" you are cardiovascular wise, the lower your resting heart rate will be; so you friend may be a bit more "fit" than you. But in reality that's a very small difference and if many factors may contribute to day to day variations. Neither of those heart rate ranges suggest "heart disease". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If someone is having a heart attack. Would the pulse oximeter show an oxygen sat level below normal range?
Not necessarily: If the heart attack is huge, the heart will not pump effectively and blood will not circulate normally, causing a low oxygen saturation. More commonly, the heart attack will be smaller and the heart will continue to pump effectively enough to get blood to the lungs and then to the body, keeping the oxygen saturation normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Too complicated: In general the answer would be no, but your situation is quite complicated and you will need to discuss with your doc or cardiologist. ...Read more
Probably Not: When you are in the middle of a panic attack, there is usually an increase in heart rate. However, this increase does not usually continue after the panic attack ends. If you havfe a consistently high, or even "borderline high" heart rate, it is probably due to something else. One possibility would be a persistent presence of stress and anxiety in addition to specific episodes of panic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Low oxygen...: During an asthma exacerbation the body is trying to get enough oxygen via the blood to all critical organs. So, by increasing the respiratory rate, more oxygen can enter the body via the lungs. By increasing the heart rate, more blood can be circulated so more oxygen can be delivered. Both are compensation mechanisms the body uses to insure adequate oxygen delivery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
