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

Is there a relationship between coronary heart disease, angina, heart failure and heart attack?

Continuum: Coronary disease develops from our lifestyle and as we age real blockage develops in some or all coronary vessels. One or more plaques disrupt and obstruct. If adequate collateral pathways exist may just vagus transient angina or pain. Angina is pain without damage. If not adequate flow, or collateral, acute myocardial infarction- heart attack occurs and that is "damage". Heart failure may follow. ...Read more

Blood Pressure: 117/68 Resting Heart Rate Sitting: 75bpm - 85bpm Exercise everyday. Friend's sitting resting heart: 70bpm - 75bpm why? Heart Disease?

Blood Pressure: 117/68
Resting Heart Rate Sitting: 75bpm - 85bpm
Exercise everyday.  Friend's sitting resting heart: 70bpm - 75bpm why? Heart Disease?

Variation: There can be a lot of variation between individuals resting heart rates. In general, the more "fit" you are cardiovascular wise, the lower your resting heart rate will be; so you friend may be a bit more "fit" than you. But in reality that's a very small difference and if many factors may contribute to day to day variations. Neither of those heart rate ranges suggest "heart disease". ...Read more

What causes heart murmurs, palpitations and a faster than normal heart beat?

What causes heart murmurs, palpitations and a faster than normal heart beat?

Stimulants: Stimulants increase the heart rate and make the heart more irritable and prone to irregular rhythms that would be perceived as palpitations. In addition to increasing the heart rate, some increase the strenght of the hear beat resulting in more blood being pumped that may cause a murmur, even in the absence of a heart defect. These stimulant may be ingested substances or internally produced. ...Read more

How many heart beats a minute does healthy heart do?

How many heart beats a minute does healthy heart do?

50-90: It depends on age - children normally have faster heart rates than adults. For adults, the "official" normal resting pulse is 50-90/minute. As a rule, healthy adults tend to be at the lower end of this range. Of course your heart will beat much faster with exercise. The fastest your heart usually goes with peak exercise can be estimated as 220 minus your age. ...Read more
