Have BP 130-150/70 BPM 50-65. Is this too low a heart beat rate? Am 68 yr old female. Have BP that varies 130-150/70 and heart rate 50-65. Is this too low a heart beat rate? I exercise a lot and have weight under control; lacto/ovo veg diet with some fi
Your : Your BP should be closer to 130/70, systolic BP of 150 is too high. You can try decreasing the salt in your diet, or you may need a change in medication. Also note that a common side effect is diovan. As far as your heart rate is concerned, less than 60 is considered low, however if you are physically fit, your resting heart rate can be low. It sounds like your cardiac wrk up was completely negative therefore i don't feel your heart rate is an issue. I would focus on getting better control of your bp. Please follow up with your doctor. All the best. ...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?
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

My sister had a recient hospital stay and was put through a battery of tests. Was told she has braidiacardia, slow heart beat. Her heart rate for me ( 3 days now) has been in the 40's and low 50's. She had a spell that she was going unresponcive and was
A : A low heart rate is called "bradycardia" and is considered to be any heart rate less than 60 beats per minute. Bradycardia can either be a sign of a healthy, fit heart, or it can be a sign of a problem with the heart's electrical system. Marathon runners and other very fit, young athletes will often have very low heart rates - even in the 40-50 beats per minute range. If she does not fit into the "fit, young athlete" category, then there are other things to consider such as damage to the heart from coronary artery disease, heart attack, a metabolic problem such as hypothyroidism, or a medication which can cause a slowed heart rate as a side effect. Since she appears to be symptomatic with that unresponsiveness spell, you or she should discuss concerns with her doctor as soon as possible. They may want to check an ekg and a few blood tests to rule out problems with her heart. It may also be worthwhile to seek the advice of a cardiologist (heart specialist) if her doctor is not sure what to do. Good luck! ...Read more
Yes, it is possible: Irregular heart beat (atrial fibrillation may cause stroke. As upper chambers of the heart (atria) do not contract effectively and blood tends to clot due to slow flow or stasis in these chambers. With occaissional normal beats or convertion to normal rythm may cause these clots to break loose and block the circulation in the brain. That is why in most cases blood thinners are prescribed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
