Treatment of physiological sinus tachycardia

Author Ольга Кияница


Among all forms of rapid heartbeat, the most favorable is the physiological sinus tachycardia. Treatment of this type of arrhythmia is not required, since this is a normal reaction of the body to external stimuli. If a person is still concerned about a rhythm disorder, then it is a pathological process.

Physiological sinus tachycardia often develops after exercise, when muscle activity increases, adrenaline is thrown into the blood, vessels narrow, require increased blood circulation. If a person experiences a rapid heartbeat after work or training and after a time the pulse is normal, then it is not necessary to worry.

When observing a rhythm disorder in a calm condition, you should contact a doctor to find out more precise mechanisms for its formation. In addition, it is important to determine the cause of the pathology development.

For general convincingness, instrumental research methods (mainly electrocardiogram) that can only confirm the absence of changes in the cardiac muscle tissue can be performed. Load tests are also required if necessary, but with physiological sinus tachycardia, they will turn out to be negative. Therefore, it is desirable to know the rate of the pulse, in order to timely orientate its changes.

General recommendations

Physiological sinus tachycardia may be less or more pronounced, which basically depends on the force of external influence. Therefore, if you want to make sure that the heart palpitations are physiological, the following symptoms should be absent:

  • the appearance of tachycardia in a calm condition;
  • prolonged rhythm disturbance, whereas physiological tachycardia passes 5 minutes after the onset of the external stimulus;
  • the heart rate is more than 180 beats per minute;
  • other than an elevated heart rate there are other uncomfortable sensations (pain in the heart, shortness of breath, dizziness).


Once again we recall that the above symptoms indicate a pathological condition and do not refer to physiological tachycardia.

When identifying unpleasant symptoms it is recommended to consult a doctor.

Medicinal treatment of physiological sinus tachycardia

The condition does not pose a danger to human health, because in a short time the pulse becomes normal. Therefore, at physiological sinus tachycardia, no specific drug treatment is required.

It is enough to conduct a healthy lifestyle and eat properly, so that after various external stimuli in the form of physical and emotional stress, temperature increase, changes in the microclimate of the pulse came to normal.
