Increased heart rate is a manifestation of the activation of the sympathetic nervous system. Excessive activation of the sympathetic system can increase the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. When patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases get worse, they are often accompanied by excessive activation of the sympathetic system and increased heart rate.
Therefore, heart rate increase is not only an independent risk factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, but also a marker of poor prognosis. In the elderly population, especially in the high-risk population of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, heart rate control is of great importance. Slowing down heart rate has become an important goal for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Adjusting your mindset and lifestyle is the basis for slowing down your heart rate.
For elderly patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, attention should be paid to slowing down the pace of life, regular relaxation, deep breathing, massage and so on are helpful to slow down the heart rate, a study found that after one hour of hand or foot massage treatment, the participants' heart rate decreased by an average of 8 times/minute.
