Rapid pulse at normal pressure - what can it say?
Heart rate is an indicator that can tell a lot. Investigating this indicator, a highly qualified specialist is most likely to be able to suggest an accurate diagnosis, determine the cause of an increased or decreased pulse, assess the general state of human health, and recommend this or that type of treatment.
What is heart rate?
Experts say that the pulse is a fluctuation of the volume of blood vessels, flowing cyclically and resulting from heart contractions. It is worth noting that the heart rate throughout a person’s life may change. It depends on lifestyle, illness and stress, as well as sports, physical training and general human activity. The rate of heart rate can range from 60 to 80 beats per minute.Sometimes a change in this indicator occurs in parallel with an increase or decrease in blood pressure. However, patients often have a rapid pulse at normal pressure. What does it depend on? Let's try to figure it out.
Correct heart rate measurement
Many believe that there is nothing complicated about it. However, there are several nuances that should be considered when measuring heart rate. For example, it is proved that the pulse rate can vary throughout the day. The lowest is noted during sleep and in the morning. In addition, the position of the body is also important - it is best to measure the pulse in a person in the prone position (when sitting or standing, the frequency may slightly increase).
Causes of increased heart rate
So, there are several reasons why a patient may have an increased pulse at normal pressure:
- As a rule, the increase in heart rate during normal blood pressure is called tachycardia. At the same time, there is an increase in the heart rate, which can go up to 98 beats. in minutes Pathological tachycardia, which is often observed during respiratory failure, intoxication, anemia and other conditions, is fraught with consequences.In this case, you should seek medical help as soon as possible.
- A quick pulse at normal pressure can accompany a variety of stressful situations and strong emotional experiences. In this situation, various herbal infusions and soothing teas will help to normalize the heart rate.
- Frequent pulse at normal pressure can be observed in those who like to eat well, especially when overeating. Therefore, it is necessary to eat properly, often in small portions, and also to exclude meals after 18:00.
- Another reason for the increase in heart rate may be disruption of the endocrine system, especially the thyroid gland. However, an increase in pulse rate is accompanied by insomnia and sleep disturbance.
Based on this, we can say that the causes of rapid pulse at normal pressure can be very different. In any case, with such a pathology, which is marked by enviable constancy, you should contact an experienced specialist who will help to identify the true cause of the disease and recommend a particular type of treatment.
Symptoms of tachycardia
In any case, the rapid pulse at normal pressure can not affect the general condition of the person.Initially, the patient feels a strong heartbeat and pulsation in large blood vessels (temples, neck, etc.). After that, the patient may complain of weakness, dizziness and general breakdown. All this can be accompanied by cold sweating, darkening of the eyes and tinnitus. However, these are not the most dangerous symptoms of tachycardia. Such a human condition can cause a violation of cerebral circulation or arrhythmic shock, which can later lead to loss of consciousness or fainting. In addition, tachycardia can cause the development of cardiac asthma due to acute ventricular failure.
What to do with it?
With the frequent manifestation of such a pathology as a rapid pulse at normal pressure, you should consult a cardiologist. This can be quite a warning signal, indicating violations of the circulatory or cardiovascular system. Most likely, in the future you will need to be examined by an endocrinologist, as well as undergo an ultrasound study and pass the necessary tests, after which the doctor will be able to make a diagnosis and prescribe a specialized treatment.In addition, the treatment of tachycardia itself should be complex: medication will not be enough. It is necessary to balance the diet and the daily regimen, avoids stressful situations, and also start taking vitamin and fortifying drugs. When tachycardias can not drink alcohol, as well as tonic beverages and preparations containing caffeine. In general, drugs for the treatment of this pathology are symptomatic, that is, they are designed to relieve directly the attacks of tachycardia.
With proper diagnosis and complex treatment, which includes not only the intake of specialized drugs, you can completely forget about the existence of tachycardia.
