Sinus tachycardia: is it worth worrying?
If we talk about such a pathology as sinustachycardia, it should be noted that this disease is characterized by a malfunction of the heart rhythm, that is, instead of the usual 70 heart rate rapidly increases to a hundred or more. What is the reason for this anomaly? As it turned out, this sinus node is provoked by such accelerated impulses, but all the heart structures function in the usual way, and the sequence of the ventricles and atrial work is debugged, that is, here it is a question of increasing the automatism of the sinoatrial node.
This phenomenon does not reveal itself in any way, butit can be noticed only when performing a routine ECG or when calculating the pulse. As for the age category, it should be noted that most often sinus tachycardia are affected by young organisms, which in every way contributes to the immaturity of the nervous system, because, as is known, the normalization of the heart rate corresponds to the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
In order to understand how to get rid oftachycardia, it is necessary to track the dynamics of this pathological process. So, the motor skills of the sympathetic nervous system are observed as a result of the release of adrenaline, which leads to increased blood pressure and pulse, and the motor of the parasympathetic nervous system shows an absolutely opposite effect. Under normal operation of the body, these two systems are mutually balanced, shifting necessarily to one side or the other, but remaining normal.
In young people, this balance is veryshaky, because the two parts of the nervous system constantly "compete" with each other, and therefore aggravated sinus tachycardia, significantly disrupting the habitual heart rate.
However, it should be clarified that the external causes of thispathology can be many, including physical work, stress, increased body temperature, thyroid disease smoking, anemia. And, in spite of the fact that sinus tachycardia itself does not harm health, the pathogenic factor of its aggravation can be "detrimental" to the general condition of the organism.
Symptoms of this pathology, in contrast to otherthe types of tachycardia are relatively moderate and very often occur in the absence of any complaints from the affected body, the patient rarely feels a distinctly palpitations, excessive drowsiness and fatigue, but learns about the prevalence of tachycardia, exclusively counting his own pulse. Anyway, sinus tachycardia requires timely medical diagnosis, which consists in performing an electrocardiographic examination. It should be clarified that mild, moderate sinus tachycardia with functional impairment does not require medical treatment. But if other forms of tachycardia have been identified and documented, it is necessary to undergo a course of productive treatment.
Sinus tachycardia is treated in stages, but forit is necessary to reliably identify the cause that caused its progression. Basically, after treatment of a characteristic disease that caused a tachycardia, the disease passes. It is extremely rare to recommend special medications that soothe the "emotional" rhythm of the heart. In such cases, prescribe small doses of B-blockers, which can in a matter of minutes eliminate such anomalous phenomenon as sinus tachycardia.
From here you can sum up: treatment of such cardiac dysfunction is completely dependent on its type and cause of exacerbation. It is often sufficient to eliminate the pathogenic factor in order to restore a normal heart rhythm. Sometimes, drug treatment is recommended, surgery is much less often indicated. One way or another, you need to be vigilant about your "motor".
