What Are Causes Of Bradycardia In The Neonate
Premature or normal: The heart rate is faster in the new born so that under 100 is usually considered to be bradycardia although that would be normal in an adult. Premature infants commonly have episodes of bradycardia and also apnea so that they not uncommnly end up on a home monitor/alarm. Rates below 100 are common and unless the rate is dropping below 60 it is unlikely a problem. Dr. Might recommend alarm though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A slow heart rate can also be due to disease of the av node, which conducts impulses from the atria to the ventricles. This can be due to scarring from heart attack or aging, and is seen in some infections such as lyme disease and chagas disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
