Episode Of House

Recommended Posts

We (me and kids) were watching house last nite. They (House and his group) were all freaking out because the patient's hr was rising to 144. They called it "thru the roof".

Even my kids laughed....they said you used to wake up with yours at 150.- 160 ...what are they talking about!! Movememnt could easily bring it close to 200....as you have all experienced. But it is not really a serious - yeah right!:blink::D

Sorry - just my sick sense of humor after all this. Erika

Thank you for sharing the laugh!

It really surprises me that others still don't get our "range of normal" for POTS!

Well, although it it only a tv show, maybe someone is getting an opportunity to learn...

I remember the cardiac nurse who administered my stress test looking at me like I had two heads when I told her we were "going up to 220 (bpm.)" I always was at 190+ on a treadmill, I never knew it wasn't normal! :blink: If 140's is through the roof, we must be off the planet!

Just had my reveal monitor downloaded the other day, my highest tachycardias are in the 190-210 range. Guess I'm off the charts!

I had a nurse at my old place of employment tell me her son thought he was going to die....he was so ill...everytime he walked across the room his hr went up to 110. His doctor was so scared.

I just said "hmmmm. that's tough". :P

It just amazes me - do they think we are making it up when we say we don't feel well?

:D
