What does it mean when your heartbrate is 39 while you sleep?

Sleep Bradycardia: It is not unusual to see a heart rate in the thirties during sleep. This is likely a normal finding, unless you have other symptoms while awake (such as dizziness, lightheadednesss, or passing out) or other disease states, like sleep apnea. In either case, your physician can help you determine if there are any other concerns.
