Heart & Cardiology/Low HR plus hypotension
How big of an issue is it really to have a HR in 40's/50's with BP <100/60? I have had a cardiac work-up done a couple of times after passing out in the wrong place (ie in public and at my child's pediatrician). Both times, cardiologists concluded that is just my normal combined with a few "normal" abnormalities. I am just used to it. But my daughter's cardiologist is stressing that it isn't normal and I need another work-up. (She has a conduction abnormality that started as trigeminal PVCs, converted to PACs, and is now random runs that trigger a self-regulating sinus tachycardia > 240, age 5)
Do I really need to see someone again or maybe just have a visit with a cardiologist every 5 years or so? On one hand, a cardiologist is telling me to be concerned. On the other, it is a pediatric cardiologist with a different perspective on "normal." Thanks!
The combination of a HR in 40's/50's with BP <100/60 may result in low cardiac output (when a reduced volume of blood is pumped out of the heart to the body, and specifically your brain). if so, it may cause you to faint.
Thus, in my opinion your condition is not "normal".
Hope this helps,
