What is the best way to lower a person's heart rate back to 60-100 beats per minute if that person has a BPM of 320 from caffeine? Thanks!

What is the best way to lower a person's heart rate back to 60-100 beats per minute if that person has a BPM of 320 from caffeine? Thanks!

Not caffeine: When you say, "bpm of 320 from caffeine" I am assuming that you are saying your heart rate is 320 beats per minute. A heart rate that fast is not simply the stimulate effects of caffeine. If your heart rate is 320 bpm, you need emergency evaluation today for arrhythmia due to an abnormal mechanism. ...Read more

My daughter age 5 month having rapid heart rate about 240 per minute. Is this dangerous? Mybabys growth and other activity are normal.

Yes, it can be: She may have a condition called SVT. The infant can tolerate this for a short period of time, and then becomes very ill very quickly. You have a short time to get her heart regulated before it could start to fail, sometimes rapidly. Sign off and go to ER now. If you live in a city with a Children's Hospital, go there. If not, nearest ER will be fine - they will transfer her if needed. ...Read more

What's the normal heart rate per minute for a 17 year old girl who has just had scoliosis surgery 2 and a half weeks ago?

If she is in constant pain, then the heart rate can go up unpredictably. Otherwise, the normal heart rate is ~60-80 beats per minute (assuming she has not other major medical issues). ...Read more

Feeling a strong beat out of my chest (to the right of my heart) every few beats. Had tests - heart is normal, but heart rate is fast.

Feeling a strong beat out of my chest (to the right of my heart) every few beats. Had tests - heart is normal, but heart rate is fast.

Heart rate: If you had tests the "strong" beat should have been identified. I am not sure what you mean by a strong beat. Is your heart rate regular or is the strong beat an early or skipped beat? The fast heart rate, if always present, is another issue. All these questions can be answered fully by a cardiologist if you have not seen one. Though you have had "tests", your testing may have been incomplete. ...Read more

For a week my 2 yo son has had a 1.5-2 degree drop in rectal temp & a 20 beat drop in heart rate. Both still in normal range, no other symp. Thoughts?

Normal?: Normal biorhythms see the body temperature fluctuate with activity and time of day, usually dropping in the average person to its lowest around 4-6 am and highest at 4-6 pm. Heart rate also fluctuates and settled down in the resting state while elevating during activity. The numbers you mention are not particularly concerning but should be correlated with other symptoms. ...Read more
