  • Heart rate is an independent risk factor for patients with cardiovascular disease, in particular with arterial hypertension, myocardial infarction, coronary artery disease and heart failure. This relation is supported by a large number of animal studies as well as clinical trials which are summarized in this article. These studies demonstrated detrimental effects of increased heart rate on the function and structure of the cardiovascular system. Heart rate can be easily detected during physical… CONTINUE READING
