10. Bradycardia in neonates
We mentioned that certain individuals would display a slower heart rate instead of increasing this vital sign. That’s the case of neonates with hypoglycemia. These patients have a very rapid heartbeat compared to adults, and the normal range changes as the baby get older. Bradycardia in infants may feel similar to our own heartbeat because their normal ranges are higher and should remain so. If you suspect hypoglycemia in your neonate or infant or find what your think is an abnormality in his heart beating, go straight to your doctor and try not to delay diagnosing your child. Besides hypoglycemia, there are many alterations in the structure of the heart that may be causing these and other symptoms.
