Is a heart rate of over 200bpm while standing normal for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Too fast

A heart rate over 200 beats per minute is way too fast.
Ones primary care doctor or cardiologist can evaluate for the cause, if an adult truly has a heart rate over 200. Heart rates close to 200 may be SVT (supraventricular tachycardia).
