How many beats per minute should the heart beat?

How many beats per minute should the heart beat?

Depends: Our heart works to provide adequate blood flow, usually described in liters/min. To reach this value the heart ejects a certain volume with each beat, known as the stroke volume (sv described as ml/beat). This is multiplied by the heart rate (beats/minute) to yield a volume per minute. The blood flow needed depends on what you are doing, sleeping requires alot less than exercise. The rate will vary.

Can your heart beat 300 beats per minute and you still live?

Can your heart beat 300 beats per minute and you still live?

Yes: Yes it can but not for long (at rest). The heart will quickly tire. In addition, the body will not be getting adequate blood flow and oxygen. This needs to be corrected right away if it doesn't immediately self-correct because it can degrade into a potentially fatal rhythm. Read more

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

What do you suggest if my heart rate dropped to 40 beats per minute the other day. How low can your heart beat drop?

Much slower: Your heart rate can pause for up to 5 seconds (that's a heart rate of 12) and, depending on what you're doing, you may not notice it. Depending on your activity and position, or if it's happening regularly, you'll pass out (or nearly pass out). Read more

I took mdma and my resting heart beat is 108 beats per minute, is that normal or should I get the the hospital?

I took mdma and my resting heart beat is 108 beats per minute, is that normal or should I get the the hospital?

A bit late: I expect you've either returned to normal or went to an ER - but in any case - this is a definite sign that you should NOT use it again. It's a risky drug and for the pro (s) there are bigger con (s). Have fun, but be safe. 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.

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
