Stress test for low heart rate

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test for low heart rate


Avatar f tn The etiology can be the fast heart rate has caused low blood pressure. With a fast heart rate pumping ventricles do not have enough time to fill sufficiently with blood before the each contraction, and the cardiac output decreases in spite of the faster heart rate. Other abnormally rapid heart rhythms such as ventricular tachycardia also can produce low blood pressure. A hole in the heart can cause hypoxia.
Avatar f tn I have always been high energy and lately I am just tired and crappy. I also did a stress test dr. says I did real well and have a strong heart. Heart rate during the day. 89 to 100 bpm. why am I so tired and crabby. I have never been like this. Age 53. Both my parents had heart problems and 3 family members also. They say My mom died of heart attack in her sleep. I hate feeling like this.

Avatar n tn A stress test reaching your projected heart rate is only one part of a big picture. And even additional tests may not show much but your signs may continue. You are a woman and if I assume that 1953 is your birth year then I'd be paying close attention and watching lipids, blood pressure, and taking control of listening to your body. Joan.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has had a young child, my son is 6 years old, had anyone who has a child this age ever had a stress test done? we were told this is impossible for him, or anyone of this age. they have recorded his HR of 261( fast ventricular tachy) bpm 2 times and as low as 56 and brady tachy.
Avatar f tn t transfer my medical records over from CA when I moved to IL and because of that, I get 2 a week til I give birth. They monitor my heart rate, his heart rate, his movements and I have to click a button every time I feel him move. They want to make sure that he's progressing properly and the placenta is providing him with all he needs. If something was wrong then his heart rate wouldn't go up 10 to 20 BPM twice in 30 to 60 minutes, thats what they check.
Avatar m tn I only walked twelve minutes before my stress test was stopped. But I reached my target heart rate. I felt extremely exhausted until my pvcs surpressed at a heart rate of 150 and then I felt GREAT until I stopped and as my heart rate went down then the pvcs started again. Your doctor should have explained anything that may have been concerning during the stress test.
Avatar n tn Why did they have you take a "exercise nuclear scan"? Nuclear profusion scan. Was there something the doctor noticed earlier in another test? Normally you don't send 60 year old patients in for such a test unless there is some indication of something unusual. Had you had angina at times before? When? Under what circumstances? Had you taken a prior standard ecg treadmill test without the radiation scan?
Avatar m tn Your maximum predicted heart rate is 220 minus your age. To be a diagnostic test, your heart rate needs to meet 85% of that number. Your weight should not affect anything. These tests are often done on people with obesity. The goal will be to get you to reach 85% of your maximum predicted heart rate, but they will not push you past what you are capable of doing.
Avatar f tn Im 36 weeks & 1 day today . I have to go for the stress test Friday at 8:30 am , what should I expect?
Avatar n tn Coreg is medication that helps lower the heart rate and bp. The stress test will evaluate one's physical condition a peak heart rate unmedicated, and how quickly the heart rae returns to normal within 3 minutes or so. Other phases of the test considered as well.
Avatar f tn What I meant, once the recommended heart rate is acheived, maintain that rate for for a longer time if necessary to try and capture any heart rhythm irregulatities. Its possible necessary information was obtained within 3 minutes...
Avatar f tn ( I just want everything to be okay.

1355431 tn?1369975306 ) I went to have a scan today and the hubby and I got to see the babys heart beat for the first time. I am 6 weeks and 3 days according to the ultrasound and the heart rate was at 105. I thought this sounded a bit low , but the ultra sound tech told me she is not allowed to comment. I won't see my ob for another week and Im really worried. Is this heart rate ok ?

Why did this happen? the last 3 to 4 months i have been very sleepy and blood pressure has been low.
Avatar f tn I would recommend doing an exercise stress test to see what your heart rate does under exertion. If the heart rate doesn't increase as would be expected with exercise, I think it would be safe to say that you have something called chronotropic incompetence. Of course, your doctor would have to rule out thyroid problems, anemia, etc before making any further decisions.
Avatar f tn I have a stress test today they put me stripes in my belly to monitor the babys heart rate. They did it for 20 minutes and they said everything looks good they said if they see something weird you can be there for up to 2 hours.
Avatar f tn There is a non stress test AND a stress test.... There are different reasons for both. During a non stress test they hook you up to a monitor and just keep an eye on baby's movements and heart rate... During a stress test they hook you up to a monitor but they induce contractions to see how baby reacts.
