Some items: Pretty good numbers, except for dropped beats. Correlate your device with doctors for accuracy. Check both arms. Holter monitor may clarify pulses. Low diastolic can relate to aortic valve leakage, so having that checked is reasonable. Some medications will also lower diastolic. ...Read more

Blood pressure: No, the numbers you report seem pretty good, and an occasional diastolic reading in the 60's is not something to be concerned about if you otherwise feel ok. I will take it that you do not have any valvular disease, as aortic regurgitation can sometimes cause particularly low diastolic numbers. ...Read more

For a week my 2 yo son has had a 1.5-2 degree drop in rectal temp & a 20 beat drop in heart rate. Both still in normal range, no other symp. Thoughts?

For a week my 2 yo son has had a 1.5-2 degree drop in rectal temp & a 20 beat drop in heart rate. Both still in normal range, no other symp. Thoughts?

Normal ?: Normal biorhythms see the body temperature fluctuate with activity and time of day, usually dropping in the average person to its lowest around 4-6 am and highest at 4-6 pm. Heart rate also fluctuates and settled down in the resting state while elevating during activity. The numbers you mention are not particularly concerning but should be correlated with other symptoms. ...Read more

My heart rate dropped to 40 beats per minute the other day. How low can your heart beat drop before it's dangerous?

My heart rate dropped to 40 beats per minute the other day. How low can your heart beat drop before it's dangerous?

Depends: Normal heart rate is 60-100 bpm. Having said that, in healthy, fit and conditioned individuals a resting heart rate as low as 30-40 bpm can be seen because their heart is conditioned and at rest is not needing a lot of oxygen, so does not beat fast. When that person exercises, and o2 and blood demands go up to their skeletal muscle etc, heart rate will increase. Hope that makes sense. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my heart rate dropped to 40 beats per minute the other day. how low can your heart beat drop?

What do you suggest if my heart rate dropped to 40 beats per minute the other day. how low can your heart beat drop?

Much slower: Your heart rate can pause for up to 5 seconds (that's a heart rate of 12) and, depending on what you're doing, you may not notice it. Depending on your activity and position, or if it's happening regularly, you'll pass out (or nearly pass out). ...Read more

HR will be at 190 then in one beat drop to 170 then rise back up. Keeps happening a few times in exercise.short of breath, extreme pounding. ?

HR will be at 190 then in one beat drop to 170 then rise back up. Keeps happening a few times in exercise.short of breath, extreme pounding. ?

Don't rely on HR: monitor. These are not accurate enough to determine the rate just on beat to beat variation. If you are however experiencing extreme pounding in your chest, and are short of breath, ESPECIALLY if you feel at all woozy or weak, you should get medical attention. At 17 probably not worrisome, but never can be sure. Avoid extreme exercise until this is done. And don't diet. ...Read more

Sometime when I strain in the bathroom my hr would drop suddenly from 80 to 60-55 and beats hard then seconds later it jumps to 120-135 hard and anxiety strikes the next hour it's up and down, panic?

Sometime when I strain in the bathroom my hr would drop suddenly from 80 to 60-55 and beats hard then seconds later it jumps to 120-135 hard and anxiety strikes the next hour it's up and down, panic?

Vagal effect: It is normal for the heart to slow when you are straining (vagal effect) and then rebound with an acceleration of the heart beat after you relax. The variability for the next hour is most likely from your anxiety. Take it easy. This is the way a normal 19yo body works. Normal physiology. ...Read more

I am taking 2.5 ng of bisoprolol when I lay on my back my heart rate drops to 55 bpm from 66 bpm and I get missed beats Is this a problem ?

I am taking 2.5 ng of bisoprolol when I lay on my back my heart rate drops to 55 bpm from 66 bpm and I get missed beats 
Is this a problem ?

Not surprising: Bisoprolol is a Beta-blocker, and these work partly by slowing the heart rate. When one stands the heart rate usually increases. Conversely, when one is lying down, or relaxed, the heart rate is generally slower. As long as you are not feeling dizzy or lethargic, the heart rates that you mention should cause no worries. Good luck !! ...Read more
