Causes of high pulse rate

high pulse rate, heart careHigh pulse is the condition when the heart beats are faster than normal and which leaves behind repercussions. Generally doctors call this condition Tachycardia where there is an abnormal increase in the rate of heart beat. In general a person’s heart beat is 60 to 100 beats per minute but when a person has high pulse rate then the beats can go over 100 per minute. This mainly happens due to the inefficiency in the pumping of the blood in your heart. There are two types of tachycardia. They are as follows:

1. Ventricular tachycardia
2. Supra ventricular tachycardia

The former is caused due to ventricles and the latter is caused due to the pumping of the heart in the upper side.
There are several reasons why the pulse rate of a person goes up. Here are some of the reasons discussed below:

 If a person has pericarditis or high blood pressure then there are chances that the person will have a high pulse rate.

 Another reason behind high pulse rate is because of hyper activity of thyroid.

 Lastly many diseases of the heart and several metabolism disorders also cause a high pulse rate in a person. This also leads to weakening of the heart as it is not capable of taking too mush strain.
