110-160 is normal: A heart rate in the 110s-160 region is completely normal. Sometimes you might hear the heart rate dip down or get even faster than the baseline. This is called a deceleration (slowing down) or acceleration (speeding up). Accelerations are good. Depending on the amount of fluid, or baby's movement, you can also have decelerations. You doctor will order more tests if the heart rate is abnormal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a one week use of meth cause long term heart damage? I went to the hospital w/ accelerated heart rate. Haven't used in 2 months still feel sick.
Actually it can: We pathologists are familiar with a curious lesion with fibrous tissue around individual heart cells that seems to run with curious rhythm problems. If you value your life, don't ever do "meth" again -- or if you don't value your life, think of the people who love you and who'd be sad if you were to see you die suddenly from it. It happens every day. Be smart. Best wishes. ...Read more

I took a couple of Norco's yesterday and 1 this morning.Im breathing slow, very sleepy, and my heart rate is 82 bpm. Should I go to the hospital?
Be more Careful: The half life is about 4 hours so since you took it YESTERDAY, I would assume that it is almost out of your system. Your heart rate is normal and I don't know what breathing slow means but if you are with it enough to post on the internet, you are ok. People who slow their respiratory rate due to narcotic overdose aren't aware of it. Narcotic use is not something to be casual about. ...Read more
