What is a high pulse rate?
A high pulse rate is when a person has a resting heartbeat of over 100 beats per minute. This can be caused by many different things and your doctor will most likely want some tests done.
Technically speaking, a pulse rate 100 and above is "high." This is referred to as tachycardia. However, pulse rates are unique to individuals. If a person's resting heart rate is normally 60, and he or she all of the sudden has a resting heart rate of 90, this would probably be considered high, even though it does not technically fit the definition of tachycardia.
A pulse rate of 112 will not normally cause any damage. In fact, it is normal for your heart rate to be this high during light exercise. The normal pulse range is about 60-100, so 112 is not high for most people. However, if your pulse is normally lower, and your pulse rate being 112 is a change for you, see your doctor.
With regards to the pulse rate, on average, a heart at rest beats 60 to 100 times per minute. Anything over 100 is considered high. A high pulse rate (tachycardia) accompanied with low blood pressure symptoms is a dangerous condition. Most often, the reason for low blood pressure, high pulse is due to a problem between the heart and brain. A high pulse rate means a high heart rate. This means the heart works excessively…
An abnormally high pulse is referred to medically as tachycardia. This is where the pulse rate is greater than or equal to 120 beats per minute while at rest. It means that the heart is pumping blood very quickly. This often happens after intense exercise or a fearful experience. It is good to rest if this occurs to bring the pulse rate back to normal.
A normal / healthy pulse rate is dependent on age, gender, and activity level. For an adult, normal pulse rate can range anywhere from 60-100 beats per minute, but again, that is dependent upon activity levels as well as gender. Males tend to have a slightly slower pulse rate than Females. In younger children (up to around 10 or so), considering the variables which pulse rate is dependent on, the normal ranges from 70-120 beats…
The normal pulse rates for females between the ages of 25-30 is 60-100 beats per minute. Under certain conditions pulse rates may exceed or fall below normal conditions. For example, while sleeping pulse rate can go down to as low as 40. Hypertension can cause pulse rate to elevate to as high as 100 while resting. which is abnormal for someone who is under relaxation. Also, weight has a factor in pulse rate.
A distal pulse should be the same rate as a femoral pulse, carotid pulse, brachial pulse, pedal pulse, or radial pulse. The strength of the pulse may be harder to feel the further away from the heart, but the rate should be the same. One heart, One Pulse Rate. The Normal heart rate/pulse in an adult is 60-100 beats per minute. Less of course, in the super healthy athlete.
