The goal of caring for a patient with sinus tachycardia (HR 120) is to slow the heart rate and nursing care tasks that can do that are encourage the patient to rest, give ordered medications for heart rate and pain, and provide O2 if indicated.

The prime duty of nurses is to carry out test and to provide proper assistance to ill people, providing specific care that is required for a particular diseases such as sinus tachycardia (HR 120). Through proper care and medical assistance from nurses, recovery from many potentially dangerous illnesses can be made possible.
