that sucks... it's standard practice... nurses or doctors should be teaching you that.
I get bursts of tachycardia.. just benign.. supraventricular tachy.. adn can snap myself out of it. WHen I was pregnant.. it happened much more frequently, but they weren't concerned. I can usually vagal myself out of it. My HR would go up into the 180's.. but a good cough, or baring down stops it.
