In brief: Rapid heart rate

Rapid heart rate (tachycardia) means the heart beats at more than 100 per minute.
It could just bebenign transient (physical activity, anxiety). Its persistence can be brought on by shock (profuse blood loss, toxic infection) or a disruption of the electrical rhythm of the heart (atrial or ventricular tachycardia). The latter conditions are serious and need immediate evaluation by a cardiologist.
