Marked Sinus Arrhythmia
What exactly does it mean if an ECG result is that you have "normal sinus rhythm with marked sinus arrhythmia"?
In anatomy, a sinus is a cavity within a bone or other tissue. Most commonly found in the bones of the face and connecting with the nasal cavities. Sinus (anatomy), description of the general term paranasal sinuses, air cavities in the cranial bones, especially those near the nose, including: the maxillary sinuses, also called the maxillary antra and the largest of the ...Read more
Told I have sinus arrhythmia. Told not to worry about it. But others tell me it's dangerous. I'm scared. My doctors won't send me for further tests.?
Anxiety: Is it sinus tachycardia? If you have no symptoms and pulse rate is not overly elevated - that might be why your doctor wasn't particularly concerned. I see that you suffer from an anxiety disorder. Sometimes heart rate can be elevated with anxiety. Education is often the best source of comfort. See: http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/tachycardia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20253873
Normal: Sinus arrhythmia refers to a prominent, but normal, variation in heart rate. The heart beat begins in the sinus node. The sinus node is regulated by the autonomic nervous system. The system may react quickly enough to cause more noticeable changes in heart rate. This variation is usually more prominent in younger individuals.See 1 more doctor answer
Atherosclerosis: The "pacemaker", the sino-atrial node, in the upper chambers of the heart (atria) lose control and other sites fire leading to irregular heartbeat. It is dangerous because it can cause turbulence in the blood flow leading to a clot. Other causes exist such as hyperthyroidism but usually decreased blood flow is the cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually normal.: The commonest type of sinus arrhythmia is related to breathing - also called respirophasic sinus arrhythmia. The hr speeds up during inspiration and slows during breathing out. This is normal, and a sign of good health. Rarely, sinus arrhythmia is seen in the elderly person, but without symptoms, it rarely requires treatment.
Normal finding: Sinus arrhythmia means that the pulse rate gradually speeds up and slows down, usually related to simply breathing in and out. This is a normal finding and does not cause any symptoms. It will be reported on an ekg report but there is nothing to worry about because it is normal.
I was told I have sinus arrhythmia and not to worry. Arrhythmia sounds scary and concerning. Should I be worried? Will I drop dead
No, nothing like tha: This condition is considered normal in young people. It has no effect on your life or pose any risk to you. It is entirely harmless. So quit worrying and do not even mention this as a health issue to talk about. It is not a disease.
HR rises & falls twice (Up, down, up, down) during each set of inspiration & expiration. Shown in ANS tests. Variation of normal Sinus Arrhythmia? Or?
Sinus arrhythmia: Sinus arrhythmia only reflects an exaggeration of a normal behavior. Everyone's HR tends to vary slightly with the normal changes in pressure in the chest with breathing. Your HR should increase with inspiration and decrease with expiration. If this variation is quite obvious, then we call it a "sinus arrhythmia, " but it's not generally clinically significant.
Please Clarify: There must be a miscommunication here. Arrhythmia is a generic term to mean abnormal. There must be another word there to describe the specific abnormality. If there is not an 'arrhythmia' then normal sinus rhythm is a common way to say normal.
No: Sinus arrythmias are very common, especially among younger people. They can be exacerbated by caffeine, strenuous exercise, drug use, even alcohol use. Check with your doctor to verify that your arrythmia doesn't also have any variations on the other elements of your electricl acticity of the heart. Your doctor will understand this. But you need to verify that there is nothing else going on.See 2 more doctor answers
I also have prominent sinus arrhythmia when I have bradycardia and apex beat is strong. I go to the gym. Is it necessary to get medical help?
Only if u have sympt: If you are physically fit, at your age (20), sinus bradycardia is OK. It normally does not cause problems (rather, it seems to indicate longevity & a good lifestyle). However, during exercise, if your heart rate goes too low AND if you are passing out, feeling faint / lightheaded, or unable to continue your exercise, then that can be a problem. Best to use HealthTap prime or talk to ur doctor.
My doc recently told me I have a "sinus arrhythmia". He didn't seem very worried and said it has to do with my breathing. Should I be worried? Thanks!
Had skipped beats Went to dr. Hooked up to EKG no skipped beats then but dr. Said I have sinus arrhythmia. Does sinus arrhythmia cause skipped beats?
Sinus arrhythmia: This is a misnomer, Sinus Arrhythmia in fact represents a normal finding in healthy young people; it ABSENCE is concerning for illness;it does NOT cause symptoms; skipped beats are just that and need identification
Abnormal heart rhythm is a condition in which a person has an abnormal heartbeat pattern, as detected by an EKG (electrocardiogram) of the heart. Some abnormal rhythms run in families (hereditary abnormal rhythms). Some abnormal rhythms are not dangerous, while others can cause ...Read more
