Tachycardia, also called tachyarrhythmia, is a heart rate that exceeds the normal resting rate. Generally, in adults, a resting heart rate greater than 100 beats per minute is accepted as tachycardia. Heartbeats above the resting frequency can be normal (as with exercise) or abnormal (as with electrical problems in the heart). Tachycardia can lead to fainting.
When the speed of blood flow becomes too high, or when rapid blood flow passes the damaged endothelium, it increases friction in blood vessels, resulting in turbulence and other disturbances. According to Virchow's triad, this is one of three conditions that can lead to thrombosis (i.e., blood clots in blood vessels).
BeterKliniek is the clinic for Integrative Medicine that bridges regular and non-regular medicine.
An van Veen (physician) and Michael van Gils (therapist) look for the cause of a condition or disease. That is where the treatment starts otherwise, as people often say, it is 'carrying water to the sea'. We call this cause medicine. Sometimes it is also desirable to treat the symptoms (at the same time). We call this symptom medicine.
