Can heart rate of 180 (caught on 14 day loop) still be considered sinus tachycardia? What can cause this if it's not my heart? No exercise/anxiety

Can heart rate of 180 (caught on 14 day loop) still be considered sinus tachycardia? What can cause this if it's not my heart? No exercise/anxiety

Unlikely: Maximum HR is age related. At your age, 180 can be due to sinus tachy but only with reason eg, strenuous exercise, severe pain, anxiety thyroid XS or infection. More likely you have supraventricular tachycardia, a common but pathological condition. Your doctor will discuss treatment options. Meanwhile avoid nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, pseudoephedrine, and recreational drugs. ...Read more

How can heart rate go for it to be considered not sinus tachycardia?

How can heart rate go for it to be considered not sinus tachycardia?

Above 100: Sinus tachycardia is heart rhythm originating from the sinoatrial node, defined as a rate greater than 100 beats/min in an average adult. 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

Is this normal qt interval 335 and qtc 435 and heart rate 104? Ecg showed sinus tachycardia,

Is this normal qt interval 335 and qtc 435 and heart rate 104? Ecg showed sinus tachycardia,

HR slightly fast: A hr of 104 at rest (sinus tach) is slightly higher than the normal range of hr's between 60-100 at rest. That said, there could be plenty of reasons that this coud happen (like anxiety, dehydration, caffeine, pain, etc). Also anemia, hyperthyroidism, breathing or pulmonary problems could result in physiologically appropriate faster hr's. Inappropriate sinus tach considered if no cause seen. ...Read more

What would cause fast heart rate and pvcs while drinking? Ii have a history of pvcs and sinus tachycardia.

What would cause fast heart rate and pvcs while drinking? Ii have a history of pvcs and sinus tachycardia.

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

I have sinus tachycardia heart rate sometimes goes up to110-126.Have mild mitral value leak. Heart hurts alot & though my back Dr said heart is ok?

I have sinus tachycardia heart rate sometimes goes up to110-126.Have mild mitral value leak. Heart hurts alot & though my back Dr said heart is ok?

My Opinion only: Your symptoms, rapid heart rate, "heart" pain along with a common finding (mild mitral valve "leak) are the signs/symptoms of someone who has A LOT OF ANXITY about your heart!! Deal with the ANXITY and your symptoms, in my opinion, will VANISH. (A mild mitral valve leak is usually AYSYMPTOMATIC!
Hope this helps BE WELL......

Can a doctor tell the difference between svt and sinus tachycardia on loop monitor? Heart rate gets up to 180bpm laying in bed

Can a doctor tell the difference between svt and sinus tachycardia on loop monitor? Heart rate gets up to 180bpm laying in bed

Yes: The way sinus tachycardia looks on an ECG printout or monitor looks much different than SVT and that's how we even distinguish between the two. Have you actually had a discussion with the ordering physician regarding your results or a discussion with a cardiologist so that your questions can be answered in a more comprehensive way? ...Read more

Be aware POTS & MPV: 23yo female having tachycardia & her MD is evaluating. Etiologies to keep in mind, related to her sex & age, are Hyperthyroidism, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, POTS, Mitral Valve Prolapse, MPV & Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, JHS, which is associated with both POTS & MVP. Evaluation for JHS can be provided by an Osteopath, and via criteria provided in the "comments" section below. ...Read more

Can anxiety cause your heart rate to stay increased for hours/days? Heart x-ray, EKG, blood work normal. Sinus Tachycardia from anxiety?

EKG cannot be normal: Short answer, yes anxiety CAN cause elevated heart rate, duration varies with degree of anxiety (episode vs. Chronic). An EKG should not be "normal" however, as sinus tachycardia would show up and make an EKG abnormal. This may require the attention of a local internist or cardiologist to further clarify, identify and treat or counsel. ...Read more

While in a hospital for something, I began to have chest pain. My heart rate was 130 ECG which showed sinus tachycardia. Over next 3 days troponin levels went from <0.01, 0.02, <0.04. Did I have a mi?

No: Not by enzymatic criteria. Sinus tachycardia is indicative that you were distressed - either by pain, anxiety, or both. It is the reaction, not the cause of your pain. Your doctors, possibly with additional testing, can decide if you have acute coronary syndrome or non-cardiac chest pain. ...Read more

Is there any long term dangers of having a constant regular sinus rythym, yet slightly tachycardic heart rate?

Is there any long term dangers of having a constant regular sinus rythym, yet slightly tachycardic heart rate?

Probably not: There is a tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy which is occasionally seen in people with a chronic tachycardia. The exact rate necessary to produce the problem is not clear but it would be less likely to occur with a "mild" tachycardia. When there is tachycardia, though, we always look for the cause. If your thyroid gland is overactive for instance that needs to be treated. ...Read more
