Irregular? Resting?: The resting heart rate can vary from 60 to 100 bpm but understand that it requires 5 minutes of rest, no activity (ideally) lying in bed or sitting in a couch, with all noises (TV, radio) & lights off & no distractions. That is hard to recreate. A resting HR of 95 bpm is on the high side but is in the normal limit. A resting HR of 130 may mean deconditioning or a measurement error as above. TTYD.
