Home Remedies For Slow Heart Rate
Yes: If your fast heart rate is due to normal mechanisms, relaxation techniques like yoga, self-hypnosis, slow breaths, etc will work. If it's due to supraventricular tachycardia, valsalva maneuvers like bearing down (like having a bm) sometimes helps. If it's due to atrial fibrillation, there's nothing you can do by yourself. If it's due to rarer causes, you definitely need to see a cardiologist! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
Are there effective home remedies or herbs/vitamins that will help arrhythmias (heart beating out of rhythm)?
Normal range @ rest: 60-99 BPM is a normal heart rate at rest. Aerobically fit people often have lower resting/exercise heart rate, thus better--well conditioned heart pumps better and thus does not have to pump as many times/min. Runners/swimmers/bicyclers/athletes often have nice and slow heart rate. Keep a healthy heart duceduce9..Good luck. ...Read more
Is it safe to run at slow pace, although heart rate goes into 90% range (190+) after 10 min. Resting heart rate, BP and stress test are all normal. ?
Running pace: Yes. Remember that you calculate the desired heart rate for exercise by the formula: 70% x (220 - yourage) as your target heart rate. Your maximal heart rate is just 220 minus yourage. As long as you don't exceed your maximal heart rate, you should be ok. With continued exercise, your pulse will trend lower during exercise. ...Read more
Learn CPR: Bystander CPR until emergency services arrive can be learned by anyone and really makes a difference in outcomes. Many public areas like arenas and golf courses now have automatic defibrillators which talk you through exactly what to do if someone collapses and you think they're in cardiac arrest. You won't hurt anyone and you may save their life! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pretty good: however, it is mostly just a gimmick. There's no rocket science to measuring your pulse. You can either use the radial artery on your wrist (on the thumb side) or your carotid artery on your neck (just in front of the muscle group on your neck) and then count the pulses over 15 seconds, multiply by 4 and that's your heart rate in beats per second. This will save battery time on your smartphone! ...Read more

In a normal child...: Resting heart rates and exercising heart rates can be like those numbers, in a normal child. That being said, having those "numbers in the normal range" does not confirm anything about a child's health status (they're just numbers). If there are worries, a parent can bring them up at the annual check-up, or make an extra appointment sooner to talk about them. ...Read more

Review workup: You must review the cause of your tachycardia and the workup with the physician that prescribed the verapamil. If the rhythm is sinus tachycardia it is secondary to another generally non-cardiac cause (if you have had a normal echocardiogram and EKG as I assume). That non- cardiac cause needs to be addressed and cirrected (? Thyroid; anemia; etc.). You want to treat the cause- not the symptom only ...Read more
