Rapid heart beat is a symptom in which a person's heart is beating fast. A fast heart rate can be normal if a person is excited or exercising. Sometimes a rapid rate is called sinus tachycardia, atrial flutter, or atrial fibrillation, etc..., depending on the type of arrhythmia (heart rhythm or rate problem).

Tachycardia can be physiological or pathological. Exercise, caffiene can increase heart rate. Meanwhile diseases of the heart, like atrial fibrillation, Supraventricular tachycardia, congestive heart failure, ventricular tachycardia can cause heart to speed up.

Dr. Bac X. Nguyen answered:

Rapid heart beat at rest reason to call doc?

Maybe, maybe not

Open-uri20120828-25076-1sshztu
Normal HR at rest is around 60-100 BMP. Sometime emotional excitement, even when you are resting, it can be a bit fast. Also, if you have taken some cold medicine/decongestants, or too much caffeine/energy drinks, or all of the above together can really speed up your heart. Asthma medicine--albuterol etc..can increase HR. so, if u have no reason for fast HR, consult doc. Good luck

What are some causes for a rapid heart beat?

There can be several

Supraventricular_tachycardia
Stress or any state where your body is producing epinephrine (adrenaline) will increase your heart rate. Increased activity like exercise will alter your HR. Certain drugs like cocaine can dramatically increase your HR. Also severe infections. Then there are rhythm problems of the heart like atrial fibrillation, SVT and other abnormal electrical conduction can cause rapid heart rat

Rapid heart beat at rest due to tea or heart?

Tachycardia

Cardiac
Rapid heart rates can be either physiologically appropriate or inappropriate (pathologic). Examples of physiologic appropriate sinus tachycardia might be fast HR due to stress or caffeine. Pathologic tachycardia can involve a wide spectrum of arrhythmias coming either from the atria or ventricular locations
