My heart rate dropped to 40 beats per minute the other day. How low can your heart beat drop before it's dangerous?

My heart rate dropped to 40 beats per minute the other day. How low can your heart beat drop before it's dangerous?

Depends: Normal heart rate is 60-100 bpm. Having said that, in healthy, fit and conditioned individuals a resting heart rate as low as 30-40 bpm can be seen because their heart is conditioned and at rest is not needing a lot of oxygen, so does not beat fast. When that person exercises, and o2 and blood demands go up to their skeletal muscle etc, heart rate will increase. Hope that makes sense. ...Read more

86 beats per minute heart rate, yet i breathe like i ran and my heart beat is loud. My body is shaking, I have dry cough and blocked nose with mucus.

Hard breathing: Blockage of nasal passages with harder breathing can make the heart work harder which means more forceful beat and faster heart rate with exertion. Are your nasal passages blocked because of allergies or because of infection? You may need a course of antibiotics if you have a sinus infection. ...Read more

Have BP 130-150/70 BPM 50-65. Is this too low a heart beat rate? Am 68 yr old female. Have BP that varies  130-150/70 and heart rate 50-65. Is this too low a heart beat rate?  I exercise a lot and have weight under control; lacto/ovo veg diet with some fi

Your : Your BP should be closer to 130/70, systolic BP of 150 is too high. You can try decreasing the salt in your diet, or you may need a change in medication. Also note that a common side effect is diovan (valsartan). As far as your heart rate is concerned, less than 60 is considered low, however if you are physically fit, your resting heart rate can be low. It sounds like your cardiac wrk up was completely negative therefore i don't feel your heart rate is an issue. I would focus on getting better control of your bp. Please follow up with your doctor. All the best. ...Read more
