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
