Heart Rate

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.

Does blood pressure rise when there is exertion?

Your circulatory system maintains pressure in your arteries and your heart pumps against it. Blood pressure numbers reflect your arterial pressure when your heart pushes blood through your system, and also when your heart rests between beats. The "active" pressure is the top number on your blood pressure reading. It is the "systolic" pressure. The "passive," or "resting," pressure is the bottom number, and represents the "diastolic" pressure. Healthy blood pressure numbers are 120 systolic over 80 diastolic, or slightly lower

Blood pressure changes throughout your day, depending on your position, your anxiety level, and your activity level. Chronic high blood pressure increases your risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, but temporary increases in blood pressure allow you to meet the demands you put on your body when you exercise. Without adequate pressure, your blood delivery system fails.

so,yes !!

Dengue Fever

Why there is bradycardia in dengue?

It is known that dengue fever can affect the heart in several ways, including weakened force and speed of contraction and slowed pulse rate. Along with some other febrile illnesses ( illnesses with fever) dengue may demonstrate "relative bradyardia", that is, heart rate lower than would be expected for a given level of fever. The mechanism is not clear but may be mediated through the immune system or may be related to an inflammation of the heart. The presence of a relatively slow heart rate in the presence of a high fever is not diagnostic for dengue but indicates the need for testing for dengue, or if testing is not available is probably sufficient indication to treat for dengue. Finally, in the terminal stages of many conditions, including severe hemorrhagic dengue fever, massive loss of fluids out of the circulatory system into the tissues may result from damage to the capillaries (the smallest blood vessels). In these circumstances the body may not be able to compensate for the low circulating volume and blood flow to the vital organs, including the brain and the heart itself may be diminished to critical levels resulting in slowing of the heart, usually as a precursor to death. This cause of bradycardia is more properly regarded as part of the complex process known as "shock" rather than as a symptom of any specific disease.

Can different music effect your heart rate and does it change by gender?

In a study out of Oxford University, Dr. P. Sleight and his investigators found that listening to music initially effects change of heart rate that is directly proportional to the tempo of the music and possibly to the complexity of the rhythm.

They also found that the style of the music or the music preference of a subject appears less important than the tempo of the music, and that music with a slower rhythm and some short pauses or breaks in the music induces calm in the listener.

Effect of Music on Heart RateObviously, music that has a faster tempo and louder will generally make a person's heart rate and blood pressure spike, probably because it releases adrenaline, similar to a stressful situation. Another ...This is according to Medscape Medical News

The researchers found that compared with baseline, the subjects' mean flow-mediated dilation:

  • Decreased 6% after listening to enjoyable music (P = .0002).
  • Increased 26% after listening to anxiety-provoking music (P = .005).
  • Increased 19% after watching a humorous video (P = .08).
  • Decreased 11% after listening to a relaxation tape (NS).

In your Heart, there is a sensor that receives pulses that dictate how fast the heart beats. Heavy and loud music, especially with a strong beat, can interfere with that sensor, causing the heart to beat in time to the music.

Here is more from Wiki s contributors:

  • I am doing a science fair project on this topic. My project actually includes the effect of music on the heart rate and blood pressure of a person. I have done some research and it really depends on what kind of music it is. For example, Heavy Metal and Rap REALLY gets the heart rate and blood pressure going, while Classical music lowers it.
  • I am also doing a science fair project and I found that rock music really gets the heart rate going and the classical music takes the heart rate down by a lot.

I put together a few years back, you will find answers as well as studies. Check the related link below. p.s this site is full of it ! they say nothing true!

How fast is an infants heart rate?

The resting heart rate of a newborn is from 120 to 160, 0 to 5 months is 90-140, 6 to 12 months is 80-140 and 1 to 3 years is 80-130 beats per minute (taken from Related Link).

What if your resting heart rate is 92?


The resting heart rate is affected by:

  • age
  • sex (men are lower usually)
  • physical fitness
  • some drugs/medication
  • genetics
  • anxiety

Some people simply have a higher/lower resting heart rate that cannot be attributed to any specific cause. Many scientific studies have shown that a resting heart rate really isn't an effective way of measuring the health of a person although they say anything above about 84 beats per minute is erring on dangerous.

Does cheese affects heart rate?

Because cheeses typically have a lot of milk fat, cheese could effect heart rate over a long time time of a lot of cheese by weakening it - by causing weight gain or clogging arteries which both put a lot of strain on your heart.

But otherwise I would say cheese and heart rate aren't really related...

Is it normal to see your heart beat in your stomach?

This question concerns the experience of a heart palpitation felt or seen in the abdomen.

The aorta is the body's largest artery and extends from the top of the heart, then curves around and down through the entire length of the abdomen before bifurcating around the navel.

This large blood vessel carries a huge amount of the body's supply of blood down through the abdomen. It is quite normal to be able to feel your own pulse in this area. Actually seeing the pulse, perhaps when lying on one's back, will be relatively common in thin people.

It is common for people to experience anxiety when they become overly aware of their own heart beat. In the vast majority of cases, there is nothing to be concerned about. If you have significant concerns or feel overly anxious, a doctor will be able to perform an examination and possibly an ultrasound to rule out any (highly unlikely) issues. This may be re-assuring and reduce your anxiety.

One potential pathology that can be experienced as abdominal palpations is abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). This is very rare in people under 60.

How many breaths per minute does a human take?

If a person had 70-90 breathes in one minute, they wouldn't be human anymore. The average adult breathes in and out every 4-5 seconds or so. If you are an adult and your respiration are between 12 and 25, then you need not worry. Outside of that (when your body is at rest), then you should be worried.

The normal range of breaths per minute for an adult (relaxed) is between 9 and 14, one breath meaning one movement of the chest, up and down. This will obviously increase upon exercise. If your respiration rate is above, this could indicate that you are not getting enough oxygen into your lungs and around your system. People who suffer from asthma or breathing, heart or respiratory problems tend to have higher respiration rates. Some medications especially pain medications can lower your respiration rate also .

Normal breathing rates fall between 12-20 per minute. Either above or below this range will result in inadequate profusion.

Why do people have different heart rates?

Different people are in different types of health. Healthy people's heart beats about two times a second. in other situations an obese (not to sound rude) persons heart rate might murmer. a heart murmer is like

EX: (Murmer) doo-doo...doo...doo-doo...doo; basically skipping a beat

EX: (regular) doo-doo...doo-doo...doo-doo...doo-doo


Skinny people have heart murmurs. The "normal" heart beats closer to once a second, about 60 to 80 bps (more or less).

mine beats in the high 50s. When I relax, it is in the low 50s. Some athletes are slower.

A large proportion of the population have heart murmurs. They are unaware it, and have no ill effects. None medical people have difficult time detecting a murmur.

I believe murmurs are caused by a very small amout of blood flowing backward threw a heart valve....No problem!!
