Heart Rate

Parent Category: Vital Signs
Heart rate is one of the vital signs of human beings. It is the number of heartbeats per unit of time and is usually expressed as beats per minute. It is the the number of times the heart contracts per minute to pump blood around the body. Often, but not always, it is the same as pulse. At rest, the heart rate is usually between 60 and 80 beats per minute.
Your heart starts working faster to pump oxygen to your cells  through your blood
It has somthing like caffine in it
The heart rate is affected by the body activity and position for  example during rest the rate will be around 60 100 beats per  minutes. Also when you are lying down the hearts beats at a fewer  rate than when you are standing or sitting, this is possible  because the body gravity is reduced...
Both age and physical fitness can have an effect on heart rate. In  simple terms, the heart is a giant muscle. If you go through your  life without working out, then this muscle will have to work harder  to get its work done, which is helping to supply oxygen to the rest  of the body. Working...
Yes. A newborn baby has a heart rate comparable to that of a fetus.  A heart rate of 80 to 140 beats per minute (or slightly faster) is  not unusual for babies up to a year old. Children's heartbeats slow  between the ages of 5 and 13, to reach the normal resting adult  range of 50 to 80 beats...
Yes It May result in a heart attack. Please call 911. If you meant  BLOOD PRESSURE it is fine.
Children 11-17 can heave a heart rate range anywhere from 60 to 100  beats per minute. Females tend to have slightly higher resting  heart rate than males.
This would depend on several things. Is his heart rate consistently  elevated or occasionally? If he has other symptoms such as chest  pain, shortness of breath, color changes or syncope it may be a  sign of an underlying health condition. The medical term for a fast  heart rate is Tachycardia,...
Beta blockers are used to reduce or slow down the heart rate by  blocking the effect of the hormone adrenaline.
No, 150 per minute is an abnormal one.
Laying down is best. Before any type of physical activity. It can  be done multiple ways as far as time goes. For beats per minute  (bpm) 30x2 or 15x4 is the most common. The more time used i.e 30x2  the more accurate the reading. Also a form of distraction can help  as some may be nervous or...
When you are exercising your heart rate goes up, because your heart  is pumping faster.
Your heart rate increases after exercise.
The normal resting heart rate for children from 1 to 2 years old is  80 to 130 beats per minute.
Heart rates vary from person to person depending on age and fitness. A normal resting heart rate is generally considered to be 60-100 beats per minute, but can be as low as 40 beats per minute. A generalized resting heart rate for a 36 to 45 year old female with a good fitness level is 63 to 66...
The heart does not have enough time between contractions to fill with enough blood to maintain adequate cardiac output. This is especially a concern because the heart itself is perfused during diastole (the period between ventricular contractions).
It can. Recent research has shown that there is a reaction to music by an increase in brain activity and heart rate. Different music produces different reactions.
60 to 100 beats per minute is the average resting heart rate for a  12 year old.
The normal, resting heart rate for an adult who is 27 years old is  between 60 and 100 beats per minute. It will be between 40 and 60  beats per minute for a well trained athlete.
yes, 65 beats per minute is a normal and good heart rate fora 39  year old female
yes,most of the times both the pulse rate and heart rate will be  equal.
No, no its normal rate in a 10 month old. the normal rate it si 20-40 by minute.
Heart rate of lions ranged from 42 to 76 beats per minute (bpm). Heart rate of tigers rangedfrom 56 to 97 bpm . In both species, the most common rhythm detectedwas normal sinus rhythm followed by sinus arrhythmia; wanderingpacemaker was also observed with normal sinus rhythm or sinusarrhythmia.
not really, as long as it is under 100 is consideret normal.although some times in can go up to 120 or even more just becauseshe might be anxious or stress, this is normal.
Your  heart speeds up to pump extra food and oxygen to the muscles.  Breathing speeds up to get more oxygen and to get rid of more  carbon dioxide. When a fit person, such as an athlete, exercises  the  pulse rate, breathing  rate and lactic acid levels rise much less than they do in an ...
Newborn to 6 months 30-60, 6 to 12 months - 24-30, 1 to 5 years  20-30, 6 to 12 years 12-20
Much faster if he is a pubescent boy near a girl. Normal Heart Rate at Rest for Children from ages 6 to15 is 70-100 beats per minute Adults age 18 and over is 60-100 beats per minute
To hear the proper apical heartbeat you have to put the stethoscope  fifth intercostal space for adults & old and for young and  infants put the stethoscope fourth intercostal space.

There are certain veins leading from your heart. and stuff.
The average heart pumps 1,900 gallons of blood daily. It pumps  700,000 gallons per year and has pumped 48 million gallons of blood  by the time a person reaches 70 years old.
  I have a helathy 5 month old. I just counted respirations at 42 per minute while asleep. Average for an infant I believe is 30-50. Any higher and I would look for signs of distress like fever, illness, retractions (caving in) to the abdomen or chest while breathing. Any of those and the...
no that is a reasonable heart rate. average is 60-80bpm
The Cheetah is the fastest land animal reaching speeds of 45 - 70 mph. Cheetahs have also been known to swim, although they do not like to.
yes girls dp have a faster heart rate than boys do in the womb.
Depends on your age. If you're 20 years old or younger, it's  totally ok.   220(max) - your age = your approximate maximum.
The average bpm of a 6 year old varies from 15-25. I wouldn't be concerned.
A normal heartbeat of a fetus at 6-7 weeks would be 90-110 beats  per minute.
Heart rates very in different people depending on a number of factors like obesity, age, heart conditions, fitness level etc. These factors effect how fast the blood must flow to get to the muscles. Also the different activities you are doing will change your heart rates.
some animals (bears) do this to conserve energy usage during the winter
  Heart rate is determined by measuring one's pulse using a variety of methods. These can be specialized devices, or merely pressing one's fingers against an artery. It is generally accepted that listening to heart beats using a stethoscope, a process known as auscultation, is a more accurate...
it's pretty easy to guess, but diet, fitness, stroke volume, cardiac output, age, gender, weight, race, mood, posture...take your pick...
The term used for a slow heart rate is bradycardia.
Hypertension means high blood pressure, usually above 140/90. A high heart rate is called Tachycardia (>100bpm)
i don't know so that is why i want to find out but it wont come up
Your resting heart rate is how many times your heart beats in a minute when you're resting (not exercising or under stress, etc). It's easy to determine your resting heart rate (pulse). You'll need a watch or clock with a seconds hand and a quiet room. Take your index and middle fingers of one hand ...
Push the two buttons for a few seconds until the minutes start to flash. Use the left button to cycle the minutes. Then push the right button to go to the hours and use the left button to cycle the hours push the right button again and your done. To reset the heart rate memory for high and average...
No, that would be called tachycardia. Bradycardia is an abnormally slow heartbeat.
The radial pulse will be lower if ventricular contraction is not  strong enough to create a radial pulse.
pain does increase your heart rate
I assume you mean you are asking why your heart would race for no apparent reason, when you are at rest and not exercising. It could be a panic attack, but you would probably recognize that in other ways (a general feeling of fear). Perhaps a heart flutter from caffeine? Everyone dreams every half...
an 8 year-old kid would usually have a pulse rate of 90 bpm (beats per minute). a person, no matter what age, vary from 60-110 bpm.
A normal resting heart rate can range anywhere from 60-100 beats per minute (bpm) with the majority falling between 60 to 80. If you are very fit, your resting bpm could be as low as 40 bpm. Your maximal heartrate is calculated as 220-your age. (For a 37 y.o. female = 183)
Pulse rates vary according to the demand, as in sleeping .walking or running. Rates are normally between 60 and 120
Running increases the body's need for oxygen. The heart rate speeds up to deliver more oxygen to the body. The pulse increases.
Potentially. See a doc buddy
Holter monitor is a portable electrocardiograph that is worn by an  ambulatory patient to continuously monitor the heart rates and  rhythms over a 24 or 48 hour period
Answer . The normal heart rate of a 3 year old is 80-130 beats per minute.
when we do exercise more muscle contract so more energy needed the muscle will get moreco2 can move easily
active-slow; noactive-fast
To find your answer, your first step is to divide the time (in this case a minute...a minute equals sixty (60) seconds) by the heart rate (e.g. 80 beats). So---60 divided by 80 will give you 0.75 seconds. Your answer will justify the time/length of the cardiac cycle.
yes becouse u people are so lazy ehen u start watching comedy movies its becouse u are lazy and daunt have anything else to do
130/90 That depends from patient to patient especially if you are a heart patient or on medication. You really should contact a cardiologist or your family doctor. They may have some sites that they recommend for patients like you and for your condition.
  I wouldn't worry too much about a child, least of all about their blood pressure levels especially if they are young. Children's vital signs may fluctuate wildly but unless there is an underlying medical condition Ie.g. obesity) that would suggest blood pressure monitoring, I wouldn't bother...
  == Answer ==   yes.   == Answer ==   yes all females do not need a boyfriend all they do is bring you down    
Yes, in fact this is normally a good sign. Unless you are experiencing any abnormal symptoms (low blood pressure/fatigue/dizziness), a low heart rate implies one is physically fit. Lance Armstrong is known to have a resting heart rate of around 32 bpm. Trained athletes often have lower heart rates....
it adjusts the heart rate to correspond to the body's need for oxygen
Usually at the neck (the vein on the side) does.
more than normal, feel palpitation.
Epinephrine (adrenaline) usually brings the body alive during fight-or-flight or stressful situations. Once epinephrine is secreted by the body in the endocrine glands, it flows in the blood stream reaching various organ centers. It starts its operation by activating some strategically placed...
