Any remedies for a fast heart rate I can try at home?

Any remedies for a fast heart rate I can try at home?

Yes: If your fast heart rate is due to normal mechanisms, relaxation techniques like yoga, self-hypnosis, slow breaths, etc will work. If it's due to supraventricular tachycardia, valsalva maneuvers like bearing down (like having a bm) sometimes helps. If it's due to atrial fibrillation, there's nothing you can do by yourself. If it's due to rarer causes, you definitely need to see a cardiologist! ...Read more

Cardiology #: What is the significance of benign tachycardia with a heart rate of 100? What could be a treatment for it, if one is needed?

Tachycardia: Normal heart rate usually run for 60-100, although there is some variance in 'normal.' If you have a sustained rate above 100 I would suggest getting it checked. There are many underlying causes of tachycardia, many of which can be serious. Don't necessarily worry about treatment to reduce the rate until you get it checked out. ...Read more

I went to dr yesterday and was giving a breathing treatment. It made me jittery and i'm still having a very fast heart rate. Is this normal?

Yes: It should resolve over today, but you should avoid coffee, smoking, alcohol and other stimulants. Broncho-dilators do have adrenaline-like effects on your nervous system. It is unusual for those effects to last more than a day. Relax as best you can. Then check back with your doctor if you have to. ...Read more

Atrial Fibrillation: Atrial fibrillation is disorganized heart muscle activity (looks like quivering) of the upper chambers of the heart. The result is that the bottom chamber doesn't get it's usual rhythmic electrical stimulus and it squeezes after slowly filling for longer than it usually takes. This feels like fluttering with strong beats in between. You need medical attention -- can be dangerous. ...Read more

My cardiologist thinks i've got atrial tachycardia seeing him in a week to confirm this, i've had fast heart rate since july , can it damage the heart?

Rapid heart rate: There are a variety of different types of atrial tachycardia, and the treatment (and after effects) depend on the cause. But having a rapid heart rate (up to 160 beats per minute) by itself does not usually cause any harm to the heart, especially in a young person whose heart is otherwise healthy. ...Read more

Ecg results asymptomatic tachycardia, thyroid test is normal. I still feel nervous, anxious and fast heart rate. Pls advise?

Not asymptomatic: By definition, your tachycardia is not "asymptomatic" since you're experiencing symptoms. Are you using any medications or recreational drugs? If using caffeine at all, please stop ; see whether this helps. Anxiety can cause tachycardia -- but have you had a cardiology consult? I would, in your case. You may also need a psychiatrist consult for the ongoing anxiety. ...Read more

The normal resting heart rate in the average adult ranges from 60–100 beats/min. In some individuals can go up to 130 beats/min. Supraventricular tachycardia at least 100 beats a minute and may reach 300 beats a minute. ECG usually helps differentiate. ...Read more

What is the heart rate range for ventricular tachycardia? (Slowest to fastest levels)

100 to >200: definition of VT is rate 100 or higher and origin from bottom chamber, R or L. Rate of VT depends on the reason for VT, level of adrenaline, stresses on heart such as blocked artery, etc. Slow VT would be closer to low 100's and fast VT closer to 160-200. There are other types of tachycardia coming from upper chambers and the middle of the heart, AV node ...Read more
