What is pulse?
Your pulse indicates how many times per minute your heart beats.
It's your heart rate, and is one of your vital signs. You can feel
your pulse on your wrist below your thumb and also on the side of
your neck. == Pulse is the rhythmical throbbing of arteries and
veins produced by the regular contractions of the heart, especially
as palpated at the wrist or in the neck. Here is a general standard
of pulse rate (PR). Resting Pulse Rate PR < 40 BMP
- Below healthy resting heart rates. PR 40-60 BPM - Resting
heart rate for sleeping. PR 60-100 BPM - Healthy adult resting
heartrate. PR 100 BPM - 220 BPM - Acceptable if measured
during exercise. Not acceptable if resting heartrate. PR > 220
BPM - Abnormally high heart rate.
