70 year old woman with pulse of 143 and heart pounding. Blood pressure is 81/51 since I took three metropolol due to my heart beating fast.

Go To ER Now: Given your age, rapid symptom of fast heart rate and low blood pressure- I suspect a heart rhythm problem, most commonly atrial fibrillation.
The faster your heart goes, the lower the blood pressure due to less time between beats to fill up with blood.
It does not sound as if your pulse is slowing down with the extra metoprolol.
This needs to be evaluated further quite promptly. ...Read more

Does pounding heart or tachycardia increase increase oxygen absorption in the lungs?

Does pounding heart or tachycardia increase increase oxygen absorption in the lungs?

Complex: The heart and lungs work together and respond to each other on many levels. Giving extra oxygen can lower a rapid heartbeat, but the fast heart rate does not necessarily increase oxygen absorption in the lungs. It depends on how fast the heart is beating, why it is beating fast, and the status of the lungs (ie diseased lungs from any cause are not as good at picking up oxygen as healthy lungs). ...Read more

I do not think this is an inherent arrhythmia of the heart or some type of tachycardic syndrome. You need to be worked up with blood, urine, & imaging studies ...Read more
