3 years ago I had a carotid CTA which detected an intermittent cardiac arrhythmia. I am experiencing heart rate spikes. Was that arrhythmia real?
Review of records: In general, the results of tests that you had done should be available to you, and you can take them to another doctor for review.

Some elite athletes have resting heart rates below 40 bpm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends. No set no#: Cardiac arrest occurs when d heart has trouble pumping blood 4 itself, or when electrical problems cause a malfunction. The faster the heart beats, the less time the heart has to fill blood 4 itself (the heart rests b/w beats). If there r blockages or narrowing in its arteries, or if it is weakened (from electrolyte imbalance) then it will stop beating at a lower cut-off. Theoret max is 220-age. ...Read more
