comment What does irregular heartbeat mean in simple language?
-1 This answer is about the origin of the cardiac rhythm with major simplifications in the cardiac cycle. Irregular heart beat is not the same thing as arrythmias, also dangerous overloading of tachycardia with arrythmia. Focus on the explicit classification of heartbeat based on origin, not how those machines work.

-1 because it is not correct answer to the functioning of the blood pressure monitoring. This answer emphasizes the melodies that are events in time interval of the heartbeat. There are also irregularities in the amplitudes of the heartbeat. There can be many amplitudes or energy levels in one heartbeat. Those machines do not only consider cardiac rhythm in making the diagnosis. They consider the energy levels and cardiac rhythm together. Without energy, you cannot even get pressure!

@Chris Thank you for your comment! I simplified the body, removed about 50% of the content, and added only references. This answer is not complete and has never been!

comment What does irregular heartbeat mean in simple language?
I understand the OP wants to understand how his blood pressure monitor works. Some of you are thinking that it works by just interpreting cardiac rhythm. This is false! It is done by interpreting the frequency space of regular/irregular heartbeats. Please, note the difference between irregular cardiac rhythm and irregular heartbeat.

comment What does irregular heartbeat mean in simple language?
I diasgree the delete request because the OP has overloaded the term irregular heartbeat with irregular cardiac rhythm. I answer both questions in this answer and clarify the difference.

OP is overloading the term!

I think I have fixed all these issues raised here now. I added a notification here such that readers are aware that I use often overloading with terms which may occur still in some of my answers.

I am not yet completely sure how the recipient's body can target the alpha and beta receptors of donors. Are there any variations of these receptors? If yes, then the effect of sympathetic stimulation would also differ.

In your definitions, is there sympathetic supply to heart? I tend to overload terms and say that there is both S and PS supply to heart through endocrine system.

There is vagus nerve to the heart so I think action potential is generated through the release of acetylcholine in heart. There is sympathetic trunk to the heart similarly neuronal. What do you mean that there are no nerves "to" the heart? I mean by this that there is the neuronal component combined with the endocrine system + receptors i.e. something to heart.

Assume adreniline/stimulates tissue. There are alpha and beta receptors. How is the sympathetic action potential generated? From receptor to periphery and to heart? Can you see this action potential generated by adrenaline and noradrenaline clearly in some channel of ECG? Probably, II or MLII. I would like to find the channel and situation where action potential from sympathetic trunk is not visible.
