What is a basal metabolic rate and a resting heart rate?

BMR vs RHR: Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the minimal rate of energy expenditure per unit time by warm-blooded animals at rest. resting heart rate is how many beats per minute the heart is going when the person is at rest usually 60-90bpm ...Read more

How is resting metabolic rate measured?

Measure or calculate: It can be measured by a special calorimeter machine that may be found in some physicians offices. It can also be estimated using the mifflin st. Jeor equation, which differs for men and women: women rmr (calories/day) = (10 x weight (kg) + (6.25 x height (cm) - (5 x age (yrs) - 161. To get weight in kg, multiply pounds by .45. To get height in cm, multiply inches by 2.54. ...Read more

What are the similarities between someone's resting metabolic rate and basal metabolic rate?

BothMeasureSame: BMR stands for Basal Metabolic Rate and RMR stands for Resting Metabolic Rate Both calculate the calories burnt in a day if a person were to do no activity at all Equation used to measure BMR is HarrisBenedict Equation And Muffin equation calculates RMR These days RMR is used more often than BMR because RMR gives more accurate results ...Read more

Which drugs speed up your heart rate and which ones slow down your heart rate?

Which drugs speed up your heart rate and which ones slow down your heart rate?

Drugs.: Atropine is a drug given intravenously to increase heart rate. There are many oral agents which can lower heart rate, predominately beta blockers (propanolol, atenolol, metoprolol, carvediolol, e.t.c) and non-dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers (diltiazem, verapamil) ...Read more

Is 81 bmp a safe heart rate? Not resting heart rate.

Is 81 bmp a safe heart rate? Not resting heart rate.

I think so: I think ur asking if a heart rate of 81 when you are not resting (so perhaps after you exercise?) is a safe rate; if that's correct then yes 81 is probably fine. A "normal" heart rate varies depending on lots of things (age, activity, emotions, meds, hydration status, more). In general the better shape you're in, the lower your rate goes. And with vigorous exercise it can go up much higher than 81. ...Read more

Does pulse rate increase as BP increases?

Does pulse rate increase as BP increases?

Not necessarily: Pulse and BP are somewhat independent. Many things that raise your pulse also raise bp, but that is not always true and the opposite is also true. For example very low BP due to shock is accompanied by very high pulse rate and very high pulse rate is often associated with lack of forward flow and very low bp. ...Read more

Is a fast or slow heart rate healthier?

Is a fast or slow heart rate healthier?

Depends: It depends what you are doing. At rest a slow heart can simply reflect good physical fitness. A fast heart at rest may signifysome underlying rhythm abnormality like atrial fibrillation. However, during exercise a slow heart rate may reflect pathologic chronotrpic incompetance while a fast heart rate is a normal, healthy response. ...Read more
