Why does your heart rate speed up after a hot bath?

You get too hot and probably getting up fast out of the tub a little too fast.. But hot baths are not for everybody... it can also really dry your skin out...

It speeds up because the warm bath water makes your blood warmer and opens your pours. Causing your body to lose blood into the pours and making your heart work harder to pump the blood.

Because a hot bath thins your blood. It can also make you dizzy too.

Agreeing with the student nurse, you can actually see the blood vessels dilate on the surface. It is the big vessels you can't see that have the big affect on your blood pressure dropping, making your heart beat faster to try to increase you cardiac output (how much blood is pumped out of the heart).

It's to try to cool your body down. The heat starts to cause your temperature to rise. The blood vessels in your body dilate (open up) so more blood can get to the surface. This also will cause your heart to beat faster as dilated blood vessels cause a drop in blood pressure. (This is the mechanism of how some blood pressure medicines work.) This drop in blood pressure is also why some people feel faint when taking a hot shower.

If you search carefully at public jacuzzi/saunas, you are likely to see this sign: "If you have heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes you should check with your doctor before using a hot tub." Why?

Initially, after immersion in hot dry air or water Jacuzzi, hot tub, hot bath, sauna), the blood vessels closest to the skin will dilate causing a drop in blood pressure and increase in heart rate. This is accompanied by constriction of the splanchic vessels (and thus less flow to the gut, slowing digestion). It was presumed that this constriction of the splanchnic vessels could include the vessels to the heart and the brain therefore increasing the possibility of heart attack (no evidence for this). It has also been suggested that the drop in blood pressure, or changes in heart rate due to the dilation of the skin or “resistance vessels” would be too much for patients to tolerate in certain cardiac conditions.
