heart monitor said basic rhythm is sinus rhythm with a mean heart rate of 80 beats per min.minimum 52 max.135


Answers:    The answer to that question is kind of complicated if you have no knowledge of cardiac rhythms and reading ECGs (Electrocardiograms). I'll try to simplify it. :)

The heart monitor measures the flow of electricity through the heart. The electricity is what causes the hart to contract in just the right rhythm to pump blood the best.

There are a number of different cardiac rhythms. Some may not cause a problem, some are lethal, but only one is the rhythm in which the heart is able to pump blood the best. This is called a "Sinus Rhythm." Its called this because the pace of the heart rate is controlled by the SA Node (sinoatrial node) of the heart. A sinus rhythm is known as a "normal" heart rhythm. The rate of SR is between 60 and 100 beats per minute.

A rate greater than 100 is called tachycardia. A rate less than 80 is called bradycardia. The rate you are seeing is an odd range. Usually a heart rate less than 52 or greater than 135 will diminish the heart's rate to pump blood effectively and may cause symptoms.

this only tells what you wrote, the cardiologist has to comment on how the rythm looks like and if one should be concerned about it, feel free to email for more questions
the heart has a normal heart beat, the mean or average rate is 80 which is textbook normal using numbers 52 and 135 I am not sure if these are the only numbers or just the highest and lowest used add the numbers divivde by 2 or the totoal numbers used and there is your average or mean your heart goes faster and slower throughout the day based on activity and emotion and is never perfectly bewating 24 hours a day, like you blood pressure it can shoot up to 200 /100 while you are angry and go back down, the issues come when the abnormals are sustained and chronic
a normal rhythm is a sinus rhythn. A normal rate is between 60 and 100. However the rate can exceed 100 with exercise or stress. Ask your Dr.
