In a St. Joseph Health Scene report, your heart rate following a traumatic event may predict the future development of post traumatic stress disorder. Australian researchers studied almost 1,000 patients who suffered a traumatic injury. If their heart and respiration rates were elevated immediately afterwards, they had a greater chance of developing PTSD within the next three months.
