Customer Question

Usually my pulse rate has been in the 50's but this am, my pulse rate has been in the low 80's. I do feel fatigued. I received the diagnoses of atrial fluttering and atrial fibrillation. Should I be concerned at this time?

heart rate in the 80s is usually not a dangerous level, even with some atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation.

I would continue to check your heart rate once a day and record it and show it to your doctor at next visit.
