Hello and welcome to HealthTap, if you are completely asymptomatic, the EKG is showing sinus bradycardia and there are no arrythmias then you are good! Thank you :)

In brief: No

If you are otherwise healthy and active, go with your cardiologist.
If your HR was in the 70's then dropping to the low 40's without any reason , you then may be concerned. I presume that you are in very good physical shape.
