642877 tn?1281799282 The faster the heart rate drops the less likely someone is to have a heart attack. The minimum heart rate recovery per minute varies in the research from 12 up to 21. I am wondering what the accepted criteria is. My other question is whether heart rate recovery varies for one person depending on their exercise intensity. Personally I have a very good VO2 max but my heart rate recovery is poor 15-16bpm.
378425 tn?1305628294 I am really worried and tired no sleep last night, My mum was life flighted out she has had a heart attack...My emotions of late have been so much of a roller coaster ride. I came on here to write and I am just so tired I cannot seem to concentrate.
Avatar n tn re athletic and many athletes have lower heart rates. The heart attack is something all together different. Did your doc explain what caused it or how much damage was done and where?
Avatar n tn My girlfriend, 50 years old, had a heart attack in May 2009 with good recovery. In January 2010 she had a blockage in a major artery causing another heart attack. The blockage was in an old stent so they cleaned it out and replaced the stent. She was released with no restrictions except for 5 days. She is paranoid now about her heart rate. She is afraid to do anything to raise it fearing another heart attack. She has a follow up appointment on the 5th of February...

Avatar m tn I was told different things when in the hospital by two different doctors but I do understand that I have a small amount of damage with the heart working at 47. It has been 2 1/2 weeks since my heart attack and the doctor is telling me it is left up to me when I should and want to go back to work. I have a job that I lift more then 50 lbs and I do not want to have another heart attack.
Avatar n tn I would be very optimistic. Meanwhile you can assume they are giving her the best of care. There are good chances for full recovery, but it depends upon the degree of damage. The term "heart attack" is rather meaningless. Visit often, hold her hand or keep your hand on her shoulder when you visit, and do not hesitate to inquire as to the name of the physician on duty and ask him, or the duty nurse a question every time you visit.
Avatar n tn Three weeks after the attack I ran on the treadmill at 6.5mph and raised my heart rate to 180, with a very quick recovery time and no ill effects. I feel fine. Can you suggest sources where I can find literature or other information on this type of situation as I'm stumped.
Avatar m tn When measuring one's recovery heart after running...should I take that measurement sitting down after running? or, should I take it when walking after running? I have actually done it both ways already...after one minute of sitting down after running...my heart rate drops from say 155 to 100 in a minute. If I take it when walking...it drops from 155 to 110 after one minute. Which of these two measurements is a more accuarte assessment of recovery heart rate. From what I have read...
Avatar f tn i was just googling my symptoms and found these symptoms linked again and again with heart attacks I was wondering if you think this could have actually been a heart attack. I dont really like doctors, and hate feeling like a time waster. I would just like your opinion on what you think this may have been. Thankyou.
948996 tn?1245949077 Try not to worry as it could have been only a small heart attack with no heart muscle damage. People can have heart attacks with pacemakers. My Mom had several with her pacemaker over 12 year period.
Avatar n tn I understand this to be symptomatic of stable angina. My question is, how does one determine a normal recovery rate from a heart attack? At one point is the decision made that recovery is not on pace and that further intervention (bypass, angioplasty) is required? I have reduced my fat intake to 75 grams or less daily, don't smoke, am perhaps 10 lbs.

Avatar m tn Sounds like afib given his age and the amount of running he has done. He needs to see an electrophysiologist so that he can be monitored during his runs or whenever he has the episodes. Best wishes for getting a handle on his sudden fatigue.
Avatar f tn how long before you can return to work after having a inferior stemi heart attack and stent put in
597183 tn?1226814437 There was one guy, Ryan Shay, who died during an Olympic qualification race due to some heart attack (I believe he had an enlarged heart and palpitations.) So, I know doctors aren't infallible. Just would like some other opinions on strenuous exercise and heart palpitations. By the way, I am a pre-med college student, and I am taking a mini-mester this January where I can shadow a doctor for three weeks.
1674823 tn?1307263620 Hello. A normal heart rate recovery (HRR) is defined by a drop of >18 beats from the max heart rate at one minute of recovery (resting) or >22 beats at two minutes, so your HRR is absolutely normal.
Avatar m tn I recently had a heart attack surfing in Mexico, full blockage in the LAD with some damage with EF of 42 last echo. I am starting to get back into the water and my doctor told me to not surf in cold water due to arteries narrowing in colder temps. I am looking for someone or a cardiologist who surfs and can direct me to keeping the spirit up. I have 3 coated stents in the LAD, have been working out 4 days per week either running or walking.
Avatar n tn If you go to the hospital in the next few hours, they can run a troponin blood test which will inform them if it was a heart attack or not, even if you have no pains now.
177337 tn?1310059899 Jodie I can't remember have you had a exercise stress test lately? I do know dr's put some weight into the results of it. If you're still having problems my dr suggested a stress test every few years to check things out since our bodies change as we age. I've read recovery pvc's are a sign of something but also also read as long as your heart is structurally normal everything is fine...
Avatar f tn After a heart attack and heart cath. is it normal for your left underarm to hurt sometimes and to have tingling in your left arm as well as numbness?
Avatar m tn Thurs. 10/16/08 This is my 11th day out from heart attack and 9th day from quadraple bypass surgery (Dr. Kwan). This is my best day as far as pressure and energy. Stopping the 2nd blood pressure med has helped. I have been able to sit-up longer and walk more. I am finally getting my appetite back. My main concern right now is the pain I am feeling in my shoulder and arm (both on my left side). I am using ice and tylenol at this time.
Avatar n tn Had a heart attack last weekend(Oct. 27 and the week before that was in the hospital for 5 days for chest and rhythm probelsm. Had a small blockage in a small vein in the bottom of my heart 60% but not in any of my main veins to my heart, they think that I either had some kind of inflammantion in my veins or a peice of plaque brok off. I still am having back pains and chest pains and want to get back to running. i am a distance runner and in great shape despite this problem.
