The answer is maybe: If you are resting and calm it is unlikely to be sinus tachycardia. In normal conditions your resting heart rate should be between 60-100 bpm. However, the only way to diagnose the actual rhythm is with a 12-lead ecg. If you are exercising or anxious, you normal sinus rate could go up as fast as 190 BPM (220-age) without representing svt. ...Read more
Automatic atrial tachycardia with exercise? How do you differentiate from innapropriate sinus tachycardia? Which would be more likely in an athlete?
Tachycardia: Inappropriate sinus tachycardia - elevated heart rate (HR) at rest > 100 sitting/standing. Athletes usually have a slow HR at rest. Atrial tachycardia/fibrillation/flutter with excessive HR more common in extreme athletes with exercise. Cause unclear - may be due to electrical changes from extreme endurance exercise to atrial electrical properties of the heart. More exercise not always better. ...Read more

Sinus Tachycardia: Sinus tachycardia is defined as any heart rate over 100 beats per minute. Sinus tachycardia is normal and the expected response to exertion, stress, or illness. Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia (IST) is rare, and denotes a condition of elevated rest heart rate in the absence of physiologic or pathologic stress. It is a diagnosis of exclusion. Typically is a mean rate over 24 hours on Holter. ...Read more
