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%

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.

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.

Please, what is the cause of alteration between bradycardia & tachycardia+bounding heart, +tired, had sleep apnea before&moderate pulmonary hypertension?

Please, what is the cause of alteration between bradycardia & tachycardia+bounding heart, +tired, had sleep apnea before&moderate pulmonary hypertension?

Heart rhythm: You are describing a heart rhythm disorder that should be evaluated. Atrial fibrillation may be at cause except that you are a little too young. See your family doctor or cardiologist asap.

Can bradycardia and hypertension occur at the same time?

Can bradycardia and hypertension occur at the same time?

Yes: Bradycardia, hypertension and irregular respiration are a clinical triad known as cushing's triad. This usually indicates elevated intracranial pressure.

Which is the best exercise for someone with bradycardia and hypertension?

Which is the best exercise for someone with bradycardia and hypertension?

Exercise: The best exercise is the one that you do almost every day for at least half an hour. If you don't do it, the 'best' exercise is nil.

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.

Can bradycardia be reversed in people with high blood pressure?

Can bradycardia be reversed in people with high blood pressure?

Bradycardia: Depends on what is causing it. Side effect of beta blockers used to treat HBP.

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.

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.

Can bradycardia cause syncope?

Can bradycardia cause syncope?

Yes: Syncope is loss of consciousness due to transitory decline in blood flow to brain. This can be caused by irregular heart rate or rhythm or by alteration of blood volume or distribution.

Can aenimia cause hypertension?

Can aenimia cause hypertension?

Anemia HTN: Yes Mostly systolic due to increased heart rate and ejection. However much more likely that HTN has damaged your kidneys. Your Kidneys produce a hormone that keeps your red blood cell count normal. When the kidneys fail this hormone may go down and result in anemia. So need more information. I specialize I this and am available got second opinion.

What's the cause of uncontrolled hypertension?

What's the cause of uncontrolled hypertension?

Uncontrolled hyperte: The most common cause is non compliance with prescribed treatment due to side effects, not able to afford meds and just ignoring the condition as it has no symptoms in most cases. Other causes are renal artery stenosis, hyperaldosteronism. Excessive salt intake, nonsteroidal drug use and other over the counter drugs, obstructive sleep apnea and chronic kidney disease.

Slow Heart Rate (Definition)

Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
