Cardiac arrhythmias, what are they?

A cardiac arrhythmia is a recurring abnormality in the rhythm of the heartbeat. It is an abnormality in the stimulus conduction system, an electrical network that controls the pinching movement of the heart muscle. This can cause the heartbeat to be too fast, too slow or irregular. Your heart rate is constantly adjusting. For example, you have a low heart rate when you calmly […]

What is a low heart rate (bradycardia)?

A heartbeat is caused by the contraction of the heart muscle. This happens because the sinus node, a nerve node located in the right ventricle of the heart, delivers an electrical pulse to the heart muscle. A low resting heart rate A heart rate that is too low is also called bradycardia and is a heart rhythm disorder. From a heartbeat below […]

Children's blood pressure values

As with adults, a child's blood pressure can be either too high (hypertension) or too low (hypotension). Regular blood pressure measurements are therefore also of great importance in children. What are normal values ​​for a child's blood pressure? The table below gives an overview of the upper limit of normal values ​​for the blood pressure of […]

Difference between Omron X7 Smart and Omron M7 Intelli IT (2020 model)

A wrist blood pressure monitor measures around the wrist. The same principle applies to both blood pressure monitors. They must fit properly to get a correct reading. Upper arm blood pressure monitors Determining the right […]
