Why is a pulse called a pulse if it is a heartbeat?
Yes. They are two terms which describe the same thing - how quickly your heart is beating.
They are the same.
a pulse is the expansion and recoil of an artery, while a heartbeat is a single complete pulsation of the heart.
Pulse = heartbeat
Yes, directly related. When the heart beats it pushes blood around the body. You can feel a pulse as the blood moves around the body at a variety of places (the neck, the wr…ist, the top of the leg). The pulse you can feel is from the blood being pushed every second or so - but the heart. The pulse rate is the same as the heartbeat rate.
yes, your pulse is the rate your blood is going through your body and your blood is pumped by your heart.
A heart beat is when your heart makes a 'thump' noise which means it is pumping blood. Pulse rate is when you time how many times your heart beats per minute.
pulse is caused by the dilation and recoiling of your artery as blood gushes through (one sound). heartbeat is closing of the heart valves (2 sounds). The 2 sounds are caused …by the atrioventricular valve ("lub") and the semilunar valve ("dub")
A heart beat happens when your heart squeezes an amount of blood out of the left ventricle. This wave of high pressure travels throughout the blood vessel (cardiovascular) s…ystem and can be felt at any point where an artery comes close enough to the surface. Have a look at this: http://www.holomatix.com/assets/heart/index.html On the "interior" tab click heartbeat if you need help visualising or come back with more questions. Peace.
Your pulse rate is the same as your heart beat rate.
the pulse rate and the heart rate are mainly the same but only have a small difrance which is that the heart beat is only your heart but the pulse rate is in more places aroun…d your body.
The pulse is what is felt in the arteries each time the heart contracts and pumps out blood. There isn't really any difference between the two words.
In Heart Rate
They are the same
your pulse shows you how fast your heart is pumping the blood
