Palpitation and heart rate
Do you hear the work of the heart - knock,which is given by blows to the head, into the ears or strongly pounding in the chest? This is the heartbeat. For a healthy person, the heart rate is 60 ... 90 beats per minute. And in a state of rest heartbeat is not audible. A calm state in the life of modern man is extremely rare. Often, we constantly suffer physical and mental stress, which causes a loud heartbeat. In a scientific way, palpitation is one stroke of the heart's work (squeezing and pushing blood). The term "heartbeat" in the people means loud heart work.
It is worth noting that the "audibility" of the heart isabnormally. However, a loud heartbeat can be short-lived, due to the above-mentioned stresses on the body. This is normal. The heartbeat volume is increased by the volume of blood flow through the vessels. Those. we can say that the heart pushes out a larger volume of blood, and, hence, a greater impulse is created. This impulse increases the pressure on the vessels, so the movement of blood in the chest and head can be felt with greater force. In the ears, it gives, because there next to the membrane (responsible for sound transmission and sound perception) pass the vessels. Hence the noise of the work of the heart in the ears.
Quite often people confuse the concepts of palpitation andtachycardia. It is known that tachycardia is a disease of the cardiovascular system, characterized by an increased number of heart beats per minute. Notice, this is a disease. A heartbeat is a process. Often, under the influence of all the same loads, people get a pulse faster. This is due to the fact that to perform movements or thought processes, more nutrients and oxygen are needed. If such a load arises quickly, the heart does not have time to increase the ripple. Excess heartbeat (per minute up to 150 strokes) and the volume of blood pumped increases due to a larger pulse. Those. The number of blows is replaced by the quality of pumping.
Therefore, if you hear the heart work (loudheartbeat), and besides, it is often, perhaps, a logical restructuring of the body. So, it's too early to talk about tachycardia. If you observe this effect for a long time, then first try to relax for a couple of hours. If during this time you have restored the rate of heartbeat, then you have a rather stormy lifestyle and the cardiovascular system can not be reorganized to a new mode of work (increase the muscles of the heart or increase the pulse - increase the norm). If rest does not help you, you should consult a doctor.
As already mentioned the norm of heartbeat in adultspeople within 60 ... 90 beats per minute. In children, this rate is higher because of the growth of the body and restless lifestyle - up to 120 beats / min. If you have an increased heart rate (tachycardia), then you need to constantly reduce the pressure and try to calm down. This is often promoted by valerian. From 20 to 30 drops three times a day, and your heart will be pounding, as before. If you have a decreased heart rate - a bradycardia, - then you constantly need to raise it. Coffee, chocolate and broths of herbs give the desired effect.
Pregnant women until a certain time (whilethe baby will not form his own organs), too, may have an increased palpitations. This is associated with the need for more blood pumping (two organisms). If the heartbeat at the parturient is constantly high, and the heartbeat of the fetus is above 150 beats / min, then it is possible to say exactly about the malformed development of the baby. This is a significant cause for concern for future mothers.
It is also not good if there is a bradycardia. This can lead to a decrease in the functioning of processes in the body, discomforts, risk during childbirth and even fetal loss. Infants have a heart rate in the range of 120 ... 150 beats / min. At them, as well as at teenagers, the organism demands greater circulation for development. If your child is constantly (even in a dream) increased heartbeat (audible, if you lean against), it is necessary to show it to the treating doctor.
Heart palpitations are examined with the help ofperiodic measurements of pressure, EEG and other methods. Frequent palpitation can mean a disease of the thyroid gland or cardiovascular system. Quite often this leads to a disorder of the nervous system or the acquisition of VSD.
