Why There Is Bradycardia In Typhoid
Typhoid Fever: Thyphoid fever is a febrile illness assciated with fever and loose stools and if successfuly treated the outcome is good. If the BP is normal with a normal temperature with a bradycardia which is sinus bradicardia, there is no problem and needs to be moniterd with serial ekgc and rhythem for any evidence of heart block and bradycardia gets below 40 and the rhythem shows av dissociation then pace i.
Slow heart rate, also called bradycardia, is defined as a resting heart rate (pulse) less than 60 beats per minute. Having a heart rate less than 60 is not necessarily abnormal. In fact, people in good cardiovascular shape have a low heart rate. People with certain heart conditions may take medications which lower the heart rate as one of ...Read more
True: Relative bradycardia has been noted to be characteristic of typhoid, legionaires disease, and chlamidia pneumonia infections. These are all caused by bacteria that are gram negative and intracellular but the exact mechanism is not clear. I remember learning long ago when I was studying for my medicine boards exam that dengue, which is caused by a virus, also is characterized by bradycardia.See 1 more doctor answer
Bradycardia: Bradycardia, in adults (not in children) is defined as heart rate slower than 60 beats per minutes. It can be perfectly normal in people who are athletic. For example, marathon runners can have resting heart rate in 40s or even lower. It is, generally, pathological, if it leads to symptoms of dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting. If it causes extreme symptoms, a pacemaker is needed.See 1 more doctor answer
Anything is possible: But it's not likely. Bradycardia is defined as a heart rate <60. Heart rates of >50 are well tolerated by everyone. Heart rates of 40-50 during wakefulness sometimes cause fatigue. Sustained heart rates of <40 usually cause unacceptable fatigue and breathlessness. Pauses of > 3-5 seconds may cause dizziness. Pauses of > 5 seconds often cause blackouts. Pauses of > 2 minutes may cause death.
Maybe: How low is the heart rate and do you have any symptoms at this level: fatigue, dizzy, confused...Some elite athletes can have very low heart rate but for the general population, depending on the factors above, it could also indicate a heart conduction problem (or medication side effects). See your primary care physician who knows you best to see if this is something to be concerned about.See 1 more doctor answer
Healthy Carrier: Mary mallon was the first healthy carrier of typhoid identified in the us. She was an irish immigrant, who worked as a cook. Hygiene was not high on the list in the early 1900's, so it was likely that mary did not wash her hands between the bathroom and kitchen. She was traced to ~30+ illnesses with 3 deaths. The story of her discovery and capture is very interesting. Google it 4 more info.

Fever & GI bleeding: Typhoid and paratyphoid fevers are caused by bacteria. If infected you may have high fevers (which can last a month), headache, diarrhea, intestinal bleeding, and dehydration. Some develop a chronic carrier state-- persitent infection without symptoms. Rarely a hole can develop in the intestines which can be life-threatening. Treatement of typhoid fever involves hospitialization and antibiotics.
Virtually none: The chances are extremely low.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: Cholera is caused by vibrio cholerae, and is mainly a secretory diarrhea, or to put it more simply, abundant aqueous diarrhea, which will lead to dehydration if left untreated. Very rarely if at all fever will be present. Typhoid on the other hand, caused by salmonella typhi, is a systemic febrile disease, which can cause sepsis. Classic typhoid fever will rarely present with diarrhea.
BothCauseFeverButDif: Typhoid Fever is a Bacterial Infection caused by a Bacteria Salmonella Typhi. It causes very high fever and is treated with appropriate Antibiotics. It is caused by eating contaminated food and water and is common in many third world countries Malaria is caused by Malaria Parasite which is transmitted to humans by the bite of species of mosquito called Anopheles in Asian, African and Latin AmericaSee 2 more doctor answers
