Ideally what should the resting heart be while in AF. Also what is ok if optimum can't be achieved to avoid damage to the heart?

It is ok to be a little lower or a little higher, but heart rates that are not well controlled for long periods of time, particularly if they are too high, can cause symptoms and have adverse effects on the heart. ...Read more

My resting heart is averaging 150 bpm. Could that just be coffee?

I'm on Bisoprosal Fumurate for paroxysmal AF. In rhythm my resting heart is often around 50. Is this ok?

I'm on Bisoprosal Fumurate for paroxysmal AF. In rhythm my resting heart is often around 50. Is this ok?

See your doctor soon: Your bisoorolol was prescribed partly for "rate control"; that is, to keep your AF heart from beating too fast to effectively drive the blood circulation. A rate of 50 is low because it's less than 60 & risks making the heart beat too slow to effectively drive the blood circulation. If you are fatigued or light headed, then you need attention ASAP. But see your doctor soon. Hope that helps. ...Read more
