Even Small Heart Rate Increases Confer Added Risk


A new study published in January 24, 2018, in JAMA Cardiology identifies that even small changes in heart rate over time, are associated with a higher risk for adverse CV and non-CV outcomes in the general population. Every 5-beat-per minute (bpm) increase in heart rate from the preceding office visit, increases the risk with 12% for all-cause mortality, 13% for incident heart failure, 9% for myocardial infarction and 6% for stroke.
