I have an irregular heart beat i had a severe COPD attack 2 weeks ago which i eneded up in the hospital.....Yesterday i went to the doctor for a follow up and the doctor noticed that i had a irregular heart beat (as high as 141 bpms) so she ordered a ekg
Caffeine : Caffeine can increase heart rate and blood pressure a bit, but nowhere near as high as you've indicated. A heart rate of 141 and "skipped beats" sounds to me like new onset atrial fibrillation, which in turn could represent a small heart attack or other injury to your heart that happened during your COPD attack. It would be important to have this problem addressed, since atrial fibrillation can cause blood clots to form in the heart and these can then cause strokes. Also, it will be important to evaluate whether in fact you did have a heart attack, because that might predict more in the future. A. Fib can often be eliminated with medications or a procedure called cardioversion. If not, then you should probably be on a blood thinner. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fast/slow/none: Assessing the fetal heart is a bit problematic. Since they are isolated inside the bag of waters, we are limited to detecting rate as fast/ slow/ normal or none. Various factors can lead to various rate changes. The fetal heart is usually beating much fast ; 130-160/min are routine. Stress can speed or slow the rate. When checking newborns, I have never had one with fibrillation in 3 decades. ...Read more
