What Is A Dangerously High Heart Rate
Heart rate: Normally heart rate responds to exercise or physiologic demand levels. Usually we don't see it go over 180-200 even with high levels of exercise. This level while tolerated by 'normals' may be dangerous in patients with heart disease or other forms of disease. In other words, one number doesn't fit all. ...Read more
How high?: High heart rate more than 100 beats per minute can be a sign of lack of physical conditioning, endocrine disease like hyperthyroidism, sign/symptom of heart disease, dehydration, lung disease like asthma/copd, drug induced like to much caffeine/ energy drinks, chronic disease like liver and renal insufficiency, etc. You need a history and physical to evaluate the reason. ...Read more
At what point does a high heart rate during exercise become dangerous? Would an extremely high heart rate of 250-270bpm be considered dangerous?

Tachycardia: Many factors. Normal - regular 60-100bpm. Normally sinus node HR is 60-100; junctional 70-110; ventricular ~ 36 bpm. Any abn focus can lead to irregular rhythms such as A.fib/flutter, sinus tahcycardia, ventricualr tachycardia to name a few. Abnormal cardiac focus - Afib; metabolic/endocrine - thyroid, infections; CA; substance abuse; anxiety; congenital abn are some. ...Read more
Depends: If it gradually returns to normal afterward, it was likely normal (you state your age is 32 - predicted estimated peak HR for your age is 192 but 200 is reasonable). If it stays at 200 after exercise, then suddenly falls (for instance to 110), it was an abnormal rhythm. ...Read more
No: Rhabdomyolosys is a muscle injury direct or indirect. It result in breakdown of muscle fibers and release of their contents into the bloodstream. In an untrained athlete, excessive exercise can cause extreme muscle strain or a heat stroke causing tachycardia as a cause of the process. Rhabdo will occur because of the muscle breakdown not the tachycardia. Hydration and training very important. ...Read more

Look further: Anxiety, anemia and hyperthyroid state are other considerations. Fast heart rate could be an arrhythmia.

You should see both your internist and a cardiologist. ...Read more
If somebody has high heart rate (>90 at rest) it is very easy to hit the max HR during exercise even moderate. How safe is to exercise at that level?
Slowly increase...: Lack of conditioning can lead to a HR that increases rather quickly with exercise. Slowly increasing the duration & exertion with exercise - and being consistent with exercise will help lead to a lower resting HR and a slower increase. The max HR recommendations are safe; however, it isn't easy to maintain them for a length of time that would be beneficial. Build up your tolerance. ...Read more
Why does a heart rate of 70 worry me? Is this a high heart rate at rest? I am extremely obsessed with my heart rate not being over 70. Creating anxiety?
I'm 27 years old, and was diagnosed with an extremely high heart rate in february. I'm a small woman, so when is the right time to go to the hospital?
If rest HR is > 140: There are many causes of high hr. Svt comes out of nowhere, results in fast palpitations, and usually hr > 140. Sinus tachycardia can occur with anxiety or any illness, or pregnancy, or stimulants such as nicotine and caffeine. If your hr is less than about 100 at rest, that is normal. You can find out your average hr with holter monitor (doc orders). If u feel ok, go to outpt doc, not hospital. ...Read more
