Is there a relationship between bradycardia and hypertension? I had a concussion 8 months ago,could this be a sign of intercranial pressure?
What to do if i read that hypertension/high blood pressure can be a cause of bradycardia. Why is that?
Several Reasons: 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 brain pressure. There is also a phenomena where correcting a slow heart rate might resolve HTN see link below http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/7457024. ...Read more

Not really: Not usually. It would be important to get an EGG and find your underlying rythm. Maybe there are some conduction abnormalities or issues with your Sinus node. Have in mind that if you don't have symptoms, no treatment necessary for bradyardia. Unless you have a heart rate lower than 40 and depressed ejection fraction usually <40% ...Read more
My cardiologist is sending me for a echo, having symptoms of pulmonary hypertension, if diagnosed would a slow heart rate and having pacs be connected?
No: Pulmonary hypertension is elevation of the pressures in the lung circulation. There are both primary (intrinsic lung disease) and secondary causes (valve disease, systemic hypertension). An echo is a good place to start as it will help diagnoses the cause and severity of your issue. A slow heart rate is not typically associated with this. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
