How does vasoconstriction effect heart rate?

How does vasoconstriction effect heart rate?

Epinephrine: Complex interaction. If you were to assume that vessels and heart were entirely independent, you might postulate that heart rate could slow down after vasoconstriction since there is less tubing to pump through. But the chemicals that mediate vasoconstriction also mediate heart rate and force of contraction so that they usually rise in parallel. ...Read more

How could hyperthyroidism affect cardiac output?

Hyperthyroidism: Hyperthyroidism is a excess metabolic state. If other systems are normal it will usually cause increased heart rate and cardiac output. In the face of a weak heart, it could be associated with decrease in cardiac output. Chronic hyperthyroidism can be associated with a cardiomyopathy causing decreased heart function. ...Read more

Does high heart rate during excercise cause rabdomyolosis?

Does high heart rate during excercise cause rabdomyolosis?

No: Rhabdomyolosys is a muscle injury direct or indirect. It result in breakdown of muscle fibers and release of their contents into the bloodstream.

Rhabdo will occur because of the muscle breakdown not the tachycardia. Hydration and training very important. ...Read more

Different arrythmias: They come from different chamber ( upper vs lower) . Changes in BP and cardiac output depend on cardiac function , heart rate and and timing. Atrial fibrilation may decrease cardiac output about 15%. In ventricular tachycardia, BP and co will decrease more if it is long enough to become unstable. ...Read more
