Normal adult pulse rate?

Normal adult pulse rate?

60-100 bpm.: Assuming the underlying heart rhythm is normal, a heart rate between 60 and 100 bpm would be considered normal at rest. Would go above 100 temporarily with activity, and may be under 60 at rest in someone who’s athletic.

How can I get my pulse rate down?

Exercise & time: Assuming you're healthy, baseline resting heart rate tends to decrease w/time as you become more & more aerobically conditioned. However, anemia & hyperthyroidism can also lead to a longterm fast heart rate. Some illicit drugs might do this too. Bottom line: go see your doc.

What can cause a pulse rate of 48?

What can cause a pulse rate of 48?

It depends: This could be a "normal" rhythm just going slow - sinus bradycardia. This may be due to medications, thyroid issues, high exercise conditioning, or from a "sick" sinus node. The pulse may also be slow if there is slow or absent communication from the atria - partial or complete heart block. This could be potentially quite dangerous. An ekg should be able to tell for sure.

Does pulse rate increase as BP increases?

Does pulse rate increase as BP increases?

Not necessarily: Pulse and BP are somewhat independent. Many things that raise your pulse also raise bp, but that is not always true and the opposite is also true. For example very low BP due to shock is accompanied by very high pulse rate and very high pulse rate is often associated with lack of forward flow and very low bp.
