Babies tell us a lot: Monitoring a fetus by fetal hr, ultrasound or the expectant woman's perception of activity is important.

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

Heart rate between 40 bpm-50bpm echocardiogram, holter monitor results are normal, non athlete can my slow heart rat be due to genetics?

Possible: Genetics can influence your heart's responsiveness to the balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic tone as well as endocrine conditions such as hypothyroidism which can aggravate bradycardia. Their are also hereditary connections between such things as maternal lupus and congenital complete heart block. Additional monitoring and assessing chronotropic responsiveness might be in order. ...Read more

I would recommend being evaluated at your doctor if you can be fit in now, an UC or ER. These could be symptoms of anxiety, but also an "arrhythmia" such as atrial fibrillation or flutter.
