What causes to have a pulse?
As the heart pumps, blood is forced through the arteries (blood vessels leading away from the heart.) the walls of the arteries stretch to accommodate all the blood. When an artery runs just over a bone and is very close to the skin, we can feel the artery expanding every time the heart beats. This as called a pulse and the best places to feel it are the neck and wrist but you can sometime feel it in your foot if your blood vessels stick out a bit.

Our heart s pumping blood into our bloodstreams
The heart is the organ that causes a pulse.
Hypothyroidism, heart blockage, electrolyte imbalance in your body because your sodium and potassium are crashing, extreme malnutrition, and hypothermia.
There are a few different things that can cause your brake (I assume pedal) to pulse or "bounce" when you are slowing from speed. The most common is that you have a brak…e rotor or drum that is warped or out of round. This can usually be corrected by having the rotors or drums turned. This is a process that shaves the unevenness out of the metal surface of the rotor or drum. HOWEVER, this process makes the rotor or drum less able to disapate heat and more apt to re-warp. There is a minimum thickness available for every rotor and drum which lets the machine shop know how much of the material can be cut off the rotor or drum before the part must be discarded and replaced with new. I have owned 69 cars, all different kinds and years and I have not ever turned a rotor or drum. I have always just replaced them if there was a warp. This problem is most often caused by dragging the brakes from high speeds slowing down gradually and causing the brakes to heat up and then sitting at a stop with your foot pressed firmly on the brake when they are really hot...Another common cause of the brake pedal pulse is that a tire or wheel rim is out of round or a tire tread is seperating, or tire underinflation.
Your pulse is the number of times your heart beats in a minute. As you start moving quicker, or exercising, or get excited, the heart beats quicker to send more blood to… the brain (for better thinking), to the muscles (for better strength), through your lungs (to get more oxygen into the blood). As you relax, the heart begins to beat slower and returns to its normal rate.
The heart beating ie. pushing blood around the body. Each pulse is a heart beat, which causes more pressure as it puts pressure behind the blood to move it.
the pumping of the heart as it is irregular
Your pulse rate could become higher due to taking excercise, becoming excited or scared. If it is persistant however, it could be a symptom of heart disease, thyroid malfuncti…on or emphysema, amongst other things. Get checked out!
The human pulse occurs as blood is pulsed throughout the body. The veins and arteries contract, causing the pulse to occur.
At the wrist, there's a fairly large blood vessel that runs close to the skin, which makes it easy to feel. Most other places the big vessels run deeper in your body. … And what's causing the pulse, that's the heart beat. Every time the heart beats, it push out a squirt of blood, causing the pressure in the blood vessels to increase for a moment. Where the vessels are close to the skin, we can feel it To make it more easier, listen to this. It is because of the pumping of blood by the heart to our different arteries.
Rest, sleep, exercise and excitement. In terms of the physiological change, the pulse rate is dependant on the heart rate. This is self-perpetuating (it stays at the same rat…e unless it is signalled to speed up or slow back down). This signal is sent from the medulla to the SAN (sino-atrial node, or 'pacemaker') to increase or decrease the rate of the heart, and so the pulse rate.
causes of irregular pulse : Regularly irregular pulse : 1 sinus bradycardia 2 sinus tachycardia 3 paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia … Irregularly irregular pulse: 1 atrial fibrillation 2 atrial flutter 3 ventricular premature beats 4 heart block 5 pacemaker dysfunction
if your relaxed or asleep you can have a low pulse rate or even in a deep sleep you can have a slow steady pulse rate so its ok
The term electromagnetic pulse (sometimes abbreviated EMP) has the following meanings:A burst of electromagnetic radiation that results from an explosion (especially a nuclear… explosion) or a suddenly fluctuating magnetic field. The resulting electric and magnetic fieldsmay couple with electrical/electronic systems to produce damaging current and voltage surges.A broadband, high-intensity, short-duration burst of electromagnetic energy.
