My daughter age 5 month having rapid heart rate about 240 per minute.is this dangerous? mybabys growth and other activity are normal.

Yes, it can be: She may have a condition called SVT. The infant can tolerate this for a short period of time, and then becomes very ill very quickly. You have a short time to get her heart regulated before it could start to fail, sometimes rapidly. Sign off and go to ER now. If you live in a city with a Children's Hospital, go there. If not, nearest ER will be fine - they will transfer her if needed. ...Read more

What is a growth scan for in pregnancy? Will they check my baby's heart? I wanna know the heart rate! What will they measure in this scan? I'm 34weeks

Growth scan: A growth scan is an ultrasound to see that the baby is growing appropriately. They will take various measurements from which they will compare to those from a previous ultrasound to be sure they have grown enough and not too much. The baby's heart beat should be checked at each visit and you can ask what it is even without a scan. It should vary just as yours does. Hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

What is the association between low fetal heart rate and slow growth?

What is the association between low fetal heart rate and slow growth?

Rare scenarios where this general statement would not be accurate include severe maternal hypothyroidism or excessive intake of antithyroid medications in hyperthyroid women that subsequently affect the fetus and its growth curves. ...Read more

5w3d pregnant, hcg not doubling as it should. Scan showed growth but only heart rate of 66bmp. Chances of survival for fetus?

Unsure: so at 5 weeks 3 days you should not even see the pregnancy much less a heartbeat. so it is possible things are just very early and that is why the heart beat is so low. the labs likely are unimportant now. the most prognostic sign is what happens on the ultrasound and whether the pregnancy grow and the heart beat rises ...Read more

Slow fetal heart rate and growth and hashimoto's thyroid. Any correlation? I am 7.5 weeks and measure 6.5 weeks. Today's heart rate was 72.

Slow fetal heart rate and growth and hashimoto's thyroid. Any correlation? I am 7.5 weeks and measure 6.5 weeks. Today's heart rate was 72.

Thyroid disease: If your TSH is normal and you are taking your thyroid meds as directed it shouldn't have an effect on the fetal heart rate. Unfortunately we do sometimes see a slow heart rate before a embryonic demise. You probably need a short term follow up ultrasound to recheck. At 45 your risk of miscarriage and fetal chromosome issues is much higher. ...Read more

DX subchorionic hematoma 3wks ago @8wks preg. Fetal heart &growth normal. Red bleeding/clotting turned brown. Red blood+clots just returned. Why? Bad?

I have congestive heart failure and currently do humatrope (human growth hormone) injections.  I began about 1 1/2 years ago and have felt more fatigue and weakness since.  ?

Check thyroid.: Both weakness and fatigue are symptoms, not diseases. Because these symptoms can be caused by many other health problems, the importance of weakness and fatigue can only be determined when other symptoms are evaluated. HGH can cause transient fluid retention thus should be avoided in patients with decompensated congestive heart failure. Otherwise, there doesn't seem to be a problem with the heart. ...Read more
