"The fastest heart rate I have ever heard of has been 300"
- from yahoo answers

People generally die in minutes with 300 bpm.

It that's your heart rate I think you counted wrong.

not long

.Normal heart rhythm is termed sinus rhythm. Most people have a resting heart rate of between 60 and 80 beats per minute (Figure 2). In AF, the atria contract rapidly and irregularly at rates of 400 to 600 beats per minute. Fortunately, the AV node will not allow many signals through to the ventricles; only about 1 or 2 out of every 3 atrial beats passes to the ventricles. The ventricles beat too fast, however, at rates of 110 to 180 beats per minute.

tachycardia is a heart rate that exceeds the normal range. A resting heart
rate over 100 beats per minute is generally accepted as tachycardia.
Good article here >
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resting_hea...
The radial artery (wrist above thumb) is the easiest to use to check the
heart rate.
However, in emergency situations the most reliable arteries to measure
heart rate are carotid arteries (neck).
Other causes :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adrenalin
Adverse reactions to adrenaline include palpitations, tachycardia, arrhythmia, anxiety, panic attack, headache, tremor, hypertension, and acute pulmonary edema.
Use is contraindicated in people on nonselective β-blockers, because
severe hypertension and even cerebral hemorrhage may result.

I have never heard of a 400 bpm heart. My friend is being trated for 140bpm and she is very concerned about it. You must be mistaken or dead by now.
