I am 18 and always have a heart rate of over 100 and I went for multiple tests and they said I have nothing wrong but how can a heart rate of over 100 be okay??
This is what the letter I received said
I have available this young gentleman's cardiac investigation results. 24-hour tape confirms sinus rhythm, episodes of sinus arrhythmia. He had an average heart rate of 112 bpm, maximum heart rate 183 bpm, minimum heart rate 71bpm. His overall trend shows good heart rate variability. There is no significant cardiac dysrhythmia on the monitor. We can see from the trend that his heart is showing chronotropic response.
Echocardiogram confirms normal chamber sizes, good LV systolic function and no evidence of any significant valve disease. This completes our investigation and I will copy this letter to this patient so that he is aware we have no evidence of his resting heart rate making him at an enchansed risk from a cardiac viewpoint. Obviously his weight reduction and increased fitness levels will help reduce his overall resting heart rate. I have now discharged him from clinic.
Please can everyone explain what everything means and if this diagnostic sounds correct.
