Following an unhealthy diet along with a modified and ill lifestyle of people are two major factors responsible for resulting heart diseases and related complications. As per the recent research, energy drinks have been reported as one of the reasons for causing irregular heartbeats in a human body. There are blood pressure monitors available which check both blood pressure and irregularity in heart beats. Omron BP785 is one among them.
Energy drinks are mostly demanded by the young crowd including college students and frequent bar goers like people as well. All energy drinks are capable enough to provide instant energy to the drinker and make them experience sudden refreshment. However, this instant energy provision may also leads to some severe side effects to the health, especially in terms of elevating the blood pressure level and finally causes a severe heart complication to the individual. The condition of irregular heartbeats in the body is positively diagnosed after immediate consumption of energy drinks by the individual.How does the energy drink affect the heartbeats?
The health problem like heart diseases and related complications is indeed a serious concern for both, the patient and the medical professional as well. As per the recent studies, intake of energy drinks greatly affects the normal rhythm of heart and also elevates the normal blood pressure level of the individual.
An experiment is conducted on hundred people and they are asked to drink about two to three cans or bottles of energy drinks at the same time. Further, the QT interval or say the part of a graph highlighting the QT region on ECG is found to be longer as compared to the normal graph of ECG. The abnormal QT interval is the clear sign of irregular heartbeats in the body which may even leads to the death of the individual because of the heart failure or cardiac arrest. As per the reports, people who had drinks got their QT prolongation for at least 10 milliseconds larger than the normal QT section in an ECG report.
As per the doctors, there is indeed a matter of concern if the ECG report reflects about 30 milliseconds prolongation of QT portion. This increases the risk of being suffered from life threatening disorders like arrhythmias for the patient. The arrhythmias disease mainly includes the severe complication associated with heart pumping action and heartbeats. On the other side, a harmful ingredient like caffeine is also present in many energy drinks and it may significantly contribute in elevating the normal blood pressure in the body.
