Is a resting heart rate of 180-185 dangerous for a 10 year old?

Danger-no,worry-yes. A 10 year old can sustain a rapid heart rate for extended periods much easier than an older adult. However, an evaluation to discover and resolve the reason this is occurring is important.

Hi doctors, is it normal for a 60 year old male to have a resting heart rate of 57 bpm. Thankyou?

A bit low but... "Normal" resting heart rate for men is 60-100, though 57 concerns me less than if it was 90. Those who are in good athletic condition may have lower heart rates. 57 is close enough to normal to be of minimal concern. PS If you are on Lipitor (atorvastatin) I consider it essential to also take CoQ10. Please see http://tinyurl.com/p48fhko and http://tinyurl.com/axtab4d and http://tinyurl.com/9x3n594. Read more...

No. . Your resting heart rate should be in the 80's or lower if you do cardio regularly. Maybe you indulge in caffeinated beverages or chocolate to increase your heart rate. Please see your doctor to evaluate properly. You may have sleep apnea (associated with rapid heart rate) or another reason, but it should be investigated and addressed. Read more...

TOO high tachycardia. Dr. Wimberly is quite correct to suggest a visit with the pediatrician to evaluate the tachycardia. But something as simple as chocolate or caffeine intake could cause this level of tachycardia, as could otc medications. Your doctor will review these with you to be sure unnecessary tests or treatments are not done on your child. Read more...
Yes. A resting hr persistently at 198 is too high for a 6 year old. I definitely recommend getting it checked. Anemia, high thyroid, and fever can cause rapid hr, but persistently at 198, i would recommend an ekg at least to rule out some types of arrhythmia like something called svt. Read more...

Likely. You sound concerned.

You need to stay hydrated & get your rest. A trip to the doc/clinic for a strep test would be wise. Read more...
