Note to self…

That new monitoring device has picked arrhythmia multiple times and this time I manually monitored the heart rate and when it got up to 110, it kept climbing while I am in bio feed back mode, so out of my control, with me just sitting it was time to try the old push out move to make the heart settle into a normal rhythm….. for those who do not know what that is…

If you have a heart rate, when you are just sitting and not excited about a movie or jokes or caffeine stimulant and your heart rate goes over 110 and keeps climbing… we told our patients to act like they were on the toilet and push and for women, just like having a baby… both actions exert energy and somehow slows the heart… and that is all I remember from my schooling… I wasn’t that far into school, when I got out of the Air Force…

Anyhow that worked and within 5 mins, my heart rate was normal… I got to say, looks like for sure, I got the family curse with some kind of heart disease other than the tachycardia thing…

Hopefully that elliptical I ordered, will help me build up my strength and strengthen what ever is getting weaker… still waiting on a call about a new primary care provider…

If I don’t get one, it will definitely be a chapter in my book about Hawaii & the VA… which I haven’t had anything nice to say anyway… still waiting for dental implants, had to make an emergency visit to my dentist Tuesday to buy me time till they approve the molars… either way, it will cost them…
