Hi, Tachycardia is a faster than normal heart rate at rest. A healthy adult heart normally beats 60 to 100 times a minute when a person is at rest.
Any condition that puts a strain on the heart or damages heart tissue can increase your risk of tachycardia. Lifestyle changes or medical treatment may decrease the risk associated with the following factors:
High blood pressure
Heavy alcohol use
Heavy caffeine use
Use of recreational drugs
Psychological stress or anxiety
Imbalance of electrolytes, mineral-related substances necessary for conducting electrical impulses
Overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism)
