Sinus Bradycardia With Sinus Arrhythmia
Ways to reduce cholesterol? Generally healthy, and not overweight but have high cholesterol. Also have slight sinus bradycardia/sinus arrhythmia. Doctors have told me not to worry after repeated EKGs. I want to keep my heart healthy/avoid CHF later?
Mostly genetic: A very high cholesterol may need to be medicated now, if for example you have familial hypercholesterolemia with LDL over 200. It is fairly common and deadly. Exercise is actually more helpful than diet here and you want to maintain lifelong good habits. There are guidelines, and there's no reason to believe super-tight cholesterol control in youth benefits you decades later. ...Read more
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
Halter monitor results say sinus bradycardia to sinus tachycardia with sinus arrhythmia. Should I be concerned?
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. ...Read more
Ekg shows sinus bradycardia with sinus arrthythmia. Incomplete right bundle branch block and ESR is high. What does this mean?
No: Sinus bradycardia may just mean that your heart rate is slightly below the calculated and established "average hr" for the population. Now, if your hr is so low that it is causing symptoms, is not able to maintain adequate blood pressure and / or does not rise with increasing activity, then it is abnormal and you need to be evaluated. ...Read more
Ecg: I presume you are quoting an ecg report. Sinus bradycardia is a normal type heart rate of less than 60 beats per minute. Ventricular hypertrophy is increased voltage coming from left or right ventricle, perhaps due to increased size of the ventricle. ...Read more
I have sinus bradycardia at rest of 48-60. Am I at risk of developing Long Qt or Long Qt if I take certain drugs?
QT interval is heart: Rate dependent. QTc corrects for this to some extent. Many drugs can cause QT prolongation but usually in individuals with a genetic predisposition. Is there a family history of sudden death? Other members with QT prolongation? These would increase your risk. If not, your risk is relatively low like the general population regardless of your minimal bradycardia. Discuss your concerns with your MD. ...Read more
Slow heart rate: Generally a heart rate less than 50 beats per minute coming from the heart's natural pacemaker is considered sinus bradycardia. It is not necessarily abnormal as well conditioned athletes often have low heart rates. Some medications such as beta blockers slow the heart rate to this level. ...Read more
Yes: A slow heart rate in which the electrical signal for each heartbeat originates from the sinus node (where it's supposed to originate). Generally, in an adult, this means a heart rate of less than 60. But keep in mind you can have a heart rate less than 60 and still be okay. For example many good athletes, whose hearts are in great shape, have resting heart rates less than 60. ...Read more
Normal or abnormal: Could be normal if physically fit as in athletes due to high parasympathetic tone. Abnormal sinus bradycardia could be due to degeneration of the cells in the sinus node, certain medications such as beta blockers, Diltiazem or verapamil and sinus node ischemia (insufficient blood flow). ...Read more
ECG findings: "Sinus bradycardia" means the HR is slower than expected but otherwise normal by ECG findings. "PRWP" stands for "poor R wave progression" - it's an ECG finding that is relatively non-specific but requires interpretation with respect to your cardiac risk factors otherwise. If you are at elevated cardiac risk, then further testing would be recommended, such as stress testing or angiogram. ...Read more
Usually nothing: Sinus bradycardia is usually a normal rhythm that occurs during sleep or in a highly conditioned athlete. As long as the rhythm is originating from the sinus node, the individual is usually asymptomatic. Slow heart rates associated with abnormal rhythms (such as third degree heart block) may not be tolerated and may be dangerous. Sinus bradycardia can also be a sign of other non-cardiac problems. ...Read more
Probably: That recommendation should come from your doctor. However, a lot of athletes - especially aerobic athletes - have sinus bradycardia. Their hearts are able to deliver enough blood flow and maintain a reasonable blood pressure even at a slow pace. Your doctor will be in the best position to advise you. ...Read more

I have sinus bradycardia. Dr is recommending pacemaker are there any other alternatives that can be consider?
Only if symptomatic: This depends on the health of the heart, exclusion of any other problems, and presence of symptoms. Healthy, conditioned athletes may have sinus bradycardia while sleeping, sometimes as low as a hr in the 30s! but one key distinction is that the hr increases with exercise. If you have no symptoms, have a normal hr response to exercise, and heart function is nml -- pacer is probably unnecessary. ...Read more
What does "Baseline rhythm is sinus bradycardia" Min HR = 36 Max = 127 (this was during exercise). This is just the Holter test.
Unremarkable: Essentially a Normal rhythm and rate low when presumably resting/ sleeping and faster when exercising ...Read more

I had a ekg done Friday and it came back Sinus bradycardia moderate t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia. What is this and how serious is it?
ECG: The report is very nonspecific. It is not necessarily serious. You should ask your doctor what it means for you. ...Read more
Symptoms?: Sinus bradycardia is normal in athletes. If no symptoms with it, no worries. ...Read more
Usually not: As long as sinus bradycardia doesn't cause symptoms like dizziness, then it's not a problem. Well-trained athletes can have impressive sinus bradycardia because their hearts in such good shape, they don't need to beat as fast as the rest of ours. Rarely sinus bradycardia can be caused by critical illness, but in those cases the severity of illness is obvious. ...Read more
Mechanisms vary: Bradycardia simply means slow heart beat. Sinus bradycardia refers to a specific cause for the slow heart beat which is sluggishness of the natural pacemaker cells of the heart (referred to as sinus node). This could be normal in physically fit people or abnormal especially if associated with symptoms of fatigue, shortness of breath or passing out spells. ...Read more

Probably OK: You might have sinus bradycardia because you go to the gym. It can be a sign of good cardiovascular fitness. Ask your doctor. ...Read more
Does it happen that people are in sinus bradycardia while having heart failure? Without medication?
Meaning of the diagnosis from an EKG, 12 Lead, Initial: Sinus bradycardia, Low voltage QRS, Possible Septal and Inferior infarcts, age undetermined.
Sinus bradycardia means the heart rate is less than 60
Low voltage QRS could be associated with many things, including obesity, emphysema, lung disease, pericardial effusion, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, etc
Possible septal and inferior infarcts age undetermined: there is some evidence of possible heart attacks on the septal and inferior walls of the heart, and cannot determine the age of events ...Read more
Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
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
