Shows summary of resting heart rate which started rising on Saturday
Tuesday heart rtae with fever mostly passed
Tuesday the fever had actually passed most of its effect so you can see that BPM rate coming right down (especially whilst still on the drip). I checked out of hospital in late afternoon and this shows my more normal day time geart rate (except I was not moving around quickly like I do at work). The peak at abut 23:00 was a severe hayfever attack (that's another story).
Saturday heart rate as illness symptoms started
Saturday when I became ill - can see my morning sleep bpm was quite erratic and even peaked at about 90 bpm while sleeping. Although there was high bpm in the day I was feeling ill and lay in bed the whole day, yet it hit above 117 bpm.
Sunday heart rate as illness escalated
Sunday illness was escalating and you can see from midnight through early morning my BPM was around 110 - 115 and by late afternoon (when I checked into hospital) it was hitting 142 BPM (while lying in bed). The drops later was while I was on a drip in casualty, which wore off while they were waiting for the blood tests around 21:00. I was admitted into hospital about 23:15.
Friday just before illness - normal hear rate
Friday - normal day shows low bpm while sleeping and higher activity in the day (mine is always high in the day)
Resting heart rate for the past month
Shows a very sharp spike the last few days. The dip just before the sharp rise is on Thursday 24 March, and the rise starts on Fri 25 March. I was still feeling fine Friday evening when I had supper. After the illness kicked in I ate nothing and only managed a little water up to Sunday about 16:00, when I went to hospital. Despite this seeming quite severe it wa snot my worst. Back in February 1985 a similar viral infection hit me and my temperature hit 105F (40.5C) so that I could not actually even go to hospital. This time around I clocked about 39 point something degrees C. The other difference was way more scanning and analysis is now available so we are hoping to learn something from the blood cultures. What got me admitted as a blood reading that was supposed to show less than 5, and my reading was 180. I'm getting more detail on that still now that I can think a bit more clearly.
Monday heart rate with medication taking affect
Monday I was on drips with antibiotics and painkillers, in between visits for head, chest, and abdomen scans.
