Conditioning: There are many activities that will cause an increase in heart rate. A rise in heart rate with physical activity is a normal response. To calculate maximum heart rate for age, use this calculation: 220 - age http://www. Heart. Org/HEARTORG/GettingHealthy/PhysicalActivity/FitnessBasics/Target-Heart-Rates_UCM_434341_Article.

What are appropriate heart rates for a 6yo resting to sitting to standing. 48lbs. 44in. Resting heart rate typically 100. Goes to 145 with dancing.?

In a normal child...: Resting heart rates and exercising heart rates can be like those numbers, in a normal child. That being said, having those "numbers in the normal range" does not confirm anything about a child's health status (they're just numbers). If there are worries, a parent can bring them up at the annual check-up, or make an extra appointment sooner to talk about them.

How high does your heart rate need to be before you get a heart attack?

How high does your heart rate need to be before you get a heart attack?

Not related: A heart attack can occur at any heart rate if there is a blood clot in the artery or a blockage. If there is a severe narrowing than a higher heart rate will increase the risk of a heart attack as the demand of a higher heart rate would out strip the supply.

Heart rate is high when resting and lower when doing exercise can I get more information on this?

Heart rate is high when resting and lower when doing exercise can I get more information on this?

Heart rate: First you need to know what's normal. Normal resting heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. You also need to define what excercise in terms of type of activity and duration to determine how your heart rate is affected. My advice is to record your heart rate during rest and different activities and consult your GP

Investiate: A recording of your heart rhythm (24 hours, 48 hrs, 2 weeks, or 4 weeks, etc) would be extremely useful for determining what's going on. You will be asked to keep a diary of your activities during symptoms. It's possible that your heart is beating normally but fast or, alternatively, in an abnormal rhythm. The causes and treatment of the 2 are different.

Can you get your heart rate too high by running?

Can you get your heart rate too high by running?

Depends: If you have coronary artery disease, you could cause symptoms. If you have an arrhythmia you could have a extremely heart rate. However, usually simply exercising or running will not give you a heart rate that is too fast.

I get high 180 heart rate at night but woke up this morning with a heart rate of 36. What can cause such variability?

I get high 180 heart rate at night but woke up this morning with a heart rate of 36. What can cause such variability?

Arrhythmia: A heart rate of 180, given your age, is approaching the maximum heart rate that doctor's expect when doing "usual" activities (in this case, exercise) without an underlying disorder. If u get this heart rate while sleeping or resting, then u could have atrial fibrilllation (A-fib) or another arrhythmia. In the morning, ur heart compensates by slowing down to rest (the only way). See a cardiologist

Why does my heart rate get so high when I get out of bed or when I stand up after sitting for awhile. I would estimate it at 130/140 bpm?

Why does my heart rate get so high when I get out of bed or when I stand up after sitting for awhile. I would estimate it at 130/140 bpm?

Heart rate: The heart rate typically goes up on such a position change to compensate for the blood pooled in the lower extremities. You may have less tone to push venous return back up when you get up or an exaggerated heart rate response. You could be relatively dehydated or have low vascular resistance. Your doctor can check for these.

220-age = Max: You are achieving your maximal heart rate which isn't necessarily bad but also not additionally beneficial. You will achieve similar benefit from attaining and maintaining 85% which would be around 150 BPM. Back down your routine just a little. You are 44 not 22. What you lose in age you gain in experience over those younger athletes.

I do not sweat, if I get overheated I start to feel faint and flusterd and heart rate gets dangerously high. Makes it hard to work out.

Anhydrosis: If you really do not sweat you could have one of several inherited defects in the pathway, or take a medicine which stops sweating or you might be dehydrated. A sweat test could make the diagnosis. You could become quickly overheated even up to the level of a heat stroke. Avoid activities which would normally require sweating to cool the body.

When I have alcohol more often than not I get an elevated heart rate. Is it the sugar in the alcohol?

When I have alcohol more often than not I get an elevated heart rate. Is it the sugar in the alcohol?

No: The likely cause of increased heart rate with alcohol ingestion is vasodilation. That is, alcohol causes your blood vessels to dilate leading to a chain reaction in the body resulting in a rise in heart rate. There have been some consideration that alcohol may affect the vagal stimulation of the heart, preventing a compensatory slowing of the heart rate, but this has not been proven.
