If associated with progressive loss of exercise capacity, treatment may be indicated. This can all be determined easily on a treadmill stress test. ...Read more

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

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
