What is telling our pulse?

PulseThe distortions in the pulse may indicate a different disease conditions: damage to the myocardium, poisoning, impaired metabolism, even hidden depression. Our heart is “beating” relentlessly – it is cutting more than 100 million times a day and every hour of movement in the blood vessels around 300 liters of blood. His attacks are kind of encrypted account the state of the organism.
In what disturbances in heartbeat should seek help from specialist
Pulse should be measured in an upright or lying down if you’re hungry or just take food if you’ve frozen or overheated, and for women – in and on the eve of critical days. Heartbeats can be counted easily. Set the number of hits on the pulse for 30 seconds and multiply the result by 2. If you suffer from heart problems and there is no guarantee that the amount of strokes in various meanwhile time is the same, the best count for 1 minute.
What is the norm
For babies 120-140 beats per minute for children of preschool age – 90-110, for older children – 80-90, and for those who are over 14 years and older – 60-80. Over the years, the pulse becomes slower – not more than 65 beats per minute. Interesting, and important fact is that when he more often exhalation and inhalation is slowing. If your heartbeats are less than normal, the case of bradycardia. If you are a sportsman or just playing sports regularly, this result may be evidence of more economical operation of the heart. But if you are not accustomed to the workload and training, probably suffer from any disease: a viral infection, intracranial pressure, reduced thyroid, other heart disease.
Therefore you must do the cardiogram, an analysis of thyroid hormones, Uzi heart and blood chemistry. Sometimes the pulse disappears for a short time. This condition is called a blockade of the heart, ie delay or complete termination of the passage of an impulse of excitement in the heart conductive system. If you are late for a second strike may occur convulsions and seizures, which are hazardous to life. Blockades usually begin in severe necrotic, sclerotic or inflammatory processes in heart defects in complex and after a heart attack. Rapid pulse (tachycardia) is widely known and virtually all. It happens and healthy people – after the excitement, exercise, serving alcohol, but very quickly everything returns to normal.
Sometimes, however, tachycardia may persist for hours or even days. If it is accompanied by increased pressure or temperature, they should be treated. In their absence, must check the level of hemoglobin in blood and activity of the thyroid gland. Refer to cardiologist for advice – sometimes this is a sign of inflammation of the myocardium. Tachycardia most often due to the vegetative-vascular dystonia and should take care of the nervous system. Of rhythmic pulse is also easily determined: the standard intervals between the attacks must be the same. But sometimes late pulse once or hurry. Cardiologists call this condition extrasystoles.
These unpleasant feelings are often frighten patients and provoke their doubts about the existence of a serious illness. Themselves extrasystoles not have any damage. If the pulse increases after exercise, possible endocrine disorders or myocarditis. And if it reduces – the problem lies in the state of the nervous system. This is one of the typical signs of hidden depression.
