Pacemaker And Waterbeds
Is my gas pacemaker interfering with cardiac pacemaker? It is placed on the same side as the cardiac pacemaker and i feel some cardiac abnormalities.
A pacemaker is a device which sends electrical signals to the heart triggering heartbeats when needed. There are many ways to implant and configure a pacemaker; it may beat the top chambers (atria), lower chambers (ventricles) or both. Some systems stimulate both the left and right ventricles together. Pacemakers generally treat abnormally slow heart rhythms and certain ...Read more
How pacemaker react to severe anemia/ blood loss? Can my pacer recognize it as an abnormal situation and pacing the heart more faster? (based, 70 bpm)
When diagnosed with severe ectopic heart beats and lack of oxygen to the heart, does that mean AFib? Been put verapamil 180mg every night.
Afib: to know if you have afib you have to ask your doc. Nothing you mention is specific for afib ...Read more
When heart valves are slightly affected during rheumatic fever, can it still pump enough blood and nutrients around the body?
Many do: After the primary infection has resolved, the patient may do well. Damage is variable but also can evolve over time. A person may function quite well for years but end up needing a valve or valves replaced at some point in the future. Regular follow up with a heart specialist should be expected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a doctor tell the difference between svt and sinus tachycardia on loop monitor? Heart rate gets up to 180bpm laying in bed
Yes: The way sinus tachycardia looks on an ECG printout or monitor looks much different than SVT and that's how we even distinguish between the two. Have you actually had a discussion with the ordering physician regarding your results or a discussion with a cardiologist so that your questions can be answered in a more comprehensive way? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do I have excess adrenaline? Feet and hands easily cold, even with little activity, heart races, strong bounding pulse all the time. Ekg ok. Labs ok.
Heart palpitations but with a normal heart rate for 3 weeks on and off. Can see heart beating in chest, and stomach.
It's okay: Heart palpitation in young/healthy individuals is usually benign. Often it represents a "skipped beat" or premature contraction. Being able to visualize your heart beating in your chest/stomach is common in thin individuals. If your palpitations continue or you pass out then you should see your doctor. ...Read more
I was working and lifting food into cars in the hot sun some stuff heavy some not and my heart rate was 86-93-98-97-96 normal? I can feel it beating!
That's good: You should be able to feel your heartbeat when you're exerting yourself. Almost all of the "pop" stuff you read about heart rate is basically science-fantasy. You should be proud of the level of fitness that enabled you to do this kind of work, and it would be great if you were to enhance it even more with some serious aerobic exercise -- training with race-runners. I bet you'd enjoy it. ...Read more
2 EKGs and blood tests clean and no blockage. Shocks from chest to arms/neck. Only with movement. Also nausea and light headed. At rest I'm fine. ?
Not ur heart: Sounds as though it is musculoskeletal in origin and not cardiac in origin. Should check with your doc to be sure and to find out the cause. As a side comment, you said "no blockages". How do you know that for sure? Normal EKG and blood tests don't necessarily rule out blockages. Your doc knows much more about you so you should discuss this with him/her. ...Read more
When i'm on the heart monitor my heart rate goes from normal spaced heart rhythm to no space and crazy amounts of up and down marks what causes this?
Coronary: Arteries supplying the heart muscle are called coronary arteries. ...Read more
What are appropriate heart rates for a 6yo resting to sitting to standing. 48lbs. 44in. Resting heart rate typically 100. Goes to 145 with dancing. ?
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
After 2 48 heart monitors, palps and chest pain both reports are "normal" and cardiologist won't implant loop recorder. Still symptomatic though. Why?
Ask him: He must have compelling reasons not to recommend implanting a loop recorder .you and your doctor should take time and talk about it. Although implanting the device is a minor out- patient procedure,it is still surgery and one always have to weigh risk against benefit. ...Read more
During an open heart surgery, does the heart stop before they put the heart lung machine or they put it while the heart is beating?
Heart rate 30 or lower, lose vision and ability to speak. Heart beat is hard pounding, i turn white as ghost and ice cold. Then sweat pours out?
Get to an ER!: Seriously, what you describe sounds bad. If no one is with you now who can get you to an er, call an ambulance or 911. The only people who should look like ghosts are trick or treat kids. This counts as an emergency in my book. Best wishes. ...Read more
