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.
