How can I control my high pulse rate and palpitations and why it happens?

How can I control my high pulse rate and palpitations and why it happens?

Avoid dehydration: The #1 benign cause of fast heart rate is dehydration. It is very important to drink lots of water, and by that I donot mean coffee and tea (which have a diuretic effect). Cardiac output is HR X Stroke volume so if you are dehydrated, your heart rate is going to go up in order to maintain an adequate C.O. Beside this, of course, primary electrical abnormalities would be in the differential. ...Read more

I have a VSD problem and I am underweight.I generally have high pulse rate. Is this is the reason of being underweight or fail to gain weight?

Spell out VSD: To American doctors, VSD means ventricular septal defect. This heart defect has a wide spectrum of severity. If the VSD significantly effects heart function, you will be short of breath and retain water (gain weight). A less common result of VSD is endocarditis (infection inside the heart). This could cause weight loss and high pulse. You would also have a fever. ...Read more
