Deep Breath = Palpitations?

Recommended Posts

Guest CastleWolf

Hello everyone. I've got POTS. 

Do you also notice that when you take a deep breath that your heart gets out of rhythm? My heart will palpitate if I take deep breaths. It's like my breathing throws my heart out of sorts if I do deep breathing.

Also, anyone else notice their heart speeds up a lot when breathing in and then settles back down when breathing out? I've read of sinus arrhythmia, but my heart seems to be doing the speed up quite a bit. Maybe this is a POTS thing?

@CastleWolf and @FileTrekker - it is normal for the heart to speed up with deep inspiration and slow down with exhalation. It does so for every person. There is a name for it in medicine but I don't remember it.

Sinus Arrythmia, but that isn’t quite what is going on. The jump seen with me at least is far exaggerated compared to true sinus arrythmia.

@FileTrekker - No, Sinusarrhythmia is an irregular rhythm that originates in the sinus node. this is a harmless rhythm. What I am talking about is a normal reflex that causes the heart to slow down with expiration and increase with inspiration. It is not an abnormal rhytm - it is a completely normal occurrence in all people.

Honestly, it's Sinus Arrythmia. There are several types of Sinus Arrythmia.

Any variation 120ms or less between each beat is normal. Anything above that is abnormal, but isn't considered a dangerous thing. The video below explains more.
