High Sedimentation Rate In Children
Is the rate at which red blood cells sediment in a period of 1 hour. It is non-specific measure of inflammation. It is performed by placing anticoagulated blood sample in an upright tube (westergren tube) then measuring the rate at which red blood cells fall (in mm per hour). It is useful in diagnosis of some diseases, such as autoimmune diseases, for assessment of severity of ...Read more

Depends.: Low pulse rate associated with symptoms or below 50 without meds probably requires some investigation. The degree of BP elevation determines how "dangerous" it is. In elderly patients it is often reasonable to accept higher baseline bp's rather than to push medications. If i can get a BP down to 140/90 range without side effects in an 80 year old I am generally pleased. ...Read more

Should someone with a high resting heart rate also have a relatively higher target heart rate when working out?
Not Necessarily: The two aren't directly correlated. The best thing to do is to test your specific maximum heart rate using a treadmill. The old formula for what we'd estimate a max hr to be is 220-age for a man, 210-age for a woman. There's a new, better formula which is much more complex. ...Read more
