Customer Question
Hi, Our son wears a medical...
Hi,
Our son wears a medical heart monitor at night due to epilepsy. It alarms if heart rate goes too high or low this alerting us to a seizure.
His heart rate on the last few nights has been as low as 44bpm and up to 135bpm.
Should we be concerned? Could his be normal dream activity?
Many thanks

Thank you for your reply, these are normal variation in the heart rate, unless he has symptoms of shortness of breath, unable to breath, stops breathing during sleep, snores. There is no need to worry these are normal variations in heart rate. Thank you.

Thank you. I guess this is normal during rem sleep for most children?
Is there a lower/higher rate that we should be concerned about? As Perhaps we need to change the parameters on his alarm?
Pediatrician: Dr.S.A Alam, Doctor (non-pediatrics specialty) replied 1 year ago

Lowest rate less than 40 and highest more than 140-145 plus.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
