What does low pulse rate mean for me??
I have history of MI in 2007 and a stented LAD with 30-35% EF. I am on beta blockers, ACE-inhibitors, statin, blood thinner and dieuratics.
For last one week I have noticed that my pulse rate remains low, around 60-65 bpm (from earlier 70-75 bpm average). But the worrying part is that during night it goes very low, into 30-40 bpm. This has come out in my holter test, two short durations. My ICD came into operation to restore the pulse. My cardiologist was not worried.

Today morning when I got up and checked my pulse, it was in 30ies. No other symptoms.

I am concerned, if this indicates some serious problem.

Please advise.

beta blockers slow your heart down, the pulse should be above 50 without meds, it depends if you are athletic or not? the dosage may need to be lowered if there are any other symptoms, if you have dizziness or feel faint go to your doctor.
