Javaid’s article, Temporal changes in resting heart rate and deaths from ischemic heart disease was published in JAMA today, and we are understandably proud – especially since it’s getting a fair amount of media attention!
This paper describes how we found a drastic increase in the risk of death from ischemic heart disease with an increase in resting heart rate over a ten-year period, based on data from the HUNT population study. There was also a correlation between an increase in resting heart rate and all-cause mortality, although this association was weaker.
