BP Health:Is a fast or slow heartbeat a heart attack?

Smart Watch Heart Rate Accuracy

Heart rate is one of the basic indicators to judge the state of the heart. Under normal circumstances, the adult resting heart rate is in the normal range of 60 to 100 beats per minute, more than 100 or less than 60, is considered to be abnormal, medically diagnosed as "tachycardia" and "bradycardia" respectively. But does a faster or slower heartbeat predict cardiovascular disease?

It is well known that there are many conditions other than diseases that can change the heart rate. For example, people's heart rate is faster when they are exercising than when they are quiet, women's heart rate is faster than that of men, children's heart rate is faster than that of adults, and athletes' heart rate can sometimes reach about 50 beats per minute because of regular exercise. All these are normal phenomena.

Some of the so-called "abnormal" heart rate indicators are indeed related to disease, but not all can be classified as related to heart disease. Take, for example, a heart beat of more than 100 beats per minute, or "tachycardia." It's not a disease name, it's a symptom.

Tachycardia is physiological, drug sex, pathological 3 kinds, in addition to the heart itself is sick, such as various types of heart disease, myocarditis, heart failure, other reasons such as anemia, fever, acute and chronic infection, shock, hyperthyroidism, gas poisoning, also can cause tachycardia. Normal people in sports, heavy physical labor or emotional excitement, excitement, anxiety, take strong liquor, strong tea, strong coffee or smoking too much and took some drugs, can make the heart rate accelerated.

For keeping your heart health,monitoring your HR at any time and any where is important.There you can have a BP smart watch which has great accuracy of heart beat tracking.

"Bradycardia" or "heartbeat too slow" etiology is very much also, divide pathology and physiology two kinds. Physiological sinus bradycardia, heart rate and pulse every minute 50~60 times is normal phenomenon, need not be treated, common in normal sleep or physical activity more people. But coronary heart disease, cardiomyopathy, and the elderly heart conduction system degeneration caused by slower, sometimes only 30 or 40 beats per minute; Vagus nerve function excitation, can play an inhibitory role on the heart, so that the heartbeat slowed down; Certain medications can cause sinus bradycardia. In addition, a few systemic diseases such as hypothyroidism, obstructive jaundice, intracranial pressure increase, hyperkalemia, alkalosis, depression, can affect heart rate likewise, cause bradycardia.

Therefore, it is not advisable to simply judge cardiovascular disease by the rate of heartbeat. Having cardiovascular disease can affect how fast your heart beats, but how fast your heart beats doesn't necessarily mean you have cardiovascular disease. Similarly, people with consistently high heart rates are not necessarily more likely to have heart disease than others.
