Im courious what heart rate variation in percentage could be considered as normal during a 4 minutes measurement at rest?

Im courious what heart rate variation in percentage could be considered as normal during a 4 minutes measurement at rest?

Depends: It does depend a bit on age, but in general there is data that suggest at rest there is less than a 10 beat per min variation at rest, which approximates out to around 12%. Again this varies on age, medications being taken and underlying disease that one might be afflicted with. Hope this helps. ...Read more

4d imaging &echo during week 32 of pregnancy showed normal heart function;can a 4 month baby still have chance to be diagnosed w atrial septal defect?

Yes: An atrial septal defect (ASD) is almost never diagnosed prenatally, since an atrial opening (pfo) is normal at that time. Most of the time i diagnose an ASD it is after the baby has gone home from the hospital. A murmur is often not heard initially, developing only later. Fortunately early diagnosis is not critical, since intervention is usually not needed for several years. ...Read more
