Resting pulse between 41-60 and blood pressure 140/70. Can hypertension cause bradycardia ?

Resting pulse between 41-60 and blood pressure 140/70. Can hypertension cause bradycardia ?

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

Hypertension (Definition)

A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

How can hypertension/high blood pressure cause bradycardia?

How can  hypertension/high blood pressure cause bradycardia?

Several mechanisms : 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 intra-cranial 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 edit. ...Read more

Is there a relationship between bradycardia and hypertension? I had a concussion 8 months ago,could this be a sign of intercranial pressure?

Is there a relationship between bradycardia and hypertension? I had a concussion 8 months ago,could this be a sign of intercranial pressure?

Concussion: The hypertension and bradycardia are unrelated to the concussion. Any raised intracranial pressure due to a concussion would have been at the time of the brain injury and would have peaked at 3-5 days. See your medical doctor for evaluation. ...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?

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 more

I have been having heart palpitation in the evening should I be concerned? I have a pacemaker for bardycardia, Crohn's disease and high blood pressure. Taking atenolol for blood pressure.

I have been having heart palpitation in the evening should I be concerned? I have a pacemaker for bardycardia, Crohn's disease and high blood pressure. Taking atenolol for blood pressure.

If : If you have a pacemaker for bradycardia, and are on atenolol as well, palpitations should definitely be evaluated. It could be related to a slew of things, but is concerning given your history. You should see your cardiologist for the appropriate testing. ...Read more
