Pulse Of 98 Bpm
More vigorous exercise will cause a higher number of beats per minute. Given the same exercise intensity, a less fit person will reach a high heart rate faster, and the heart rate will come down slower after the exercise is done.
If you have an 8th grade child and you're concerned about his heart, don't count beats, see his pediatrician and get him checked out. ...Read more
See below: When we stand, blood pools in our legs. Our bodies will increase the pressure in our leg blood vessels to compensate. The increase in pulse rate is only temporary. ...Read more
Physics!: Totally normal. 400 characters won't do it justice, but the physics of this are pretty cool. In short, the longer time per beat at slower rates allows more filling. That filling (through another cool physics trick) automagically makes the heart squeeze more forcefully to get the blood out in time. As a result, the pulse tends to be a bit more forceful at lower rates. ...Read more
Slow pulse: Yiur pulse is quite slow. This would be expected if you are very athletic. If not, see your doctor to determine why it is so slow. ...Read more
Hello I am 34 year old female and my pulse rate ranges from 80-100 BPM is this normal? Or should I worry?
Yes-normal: A heart rate between 80 and 100 BPM is completely normal. The normal heart range is considered to be between 60 and 100 beats per minute but can vary according to numerous circumstances such as activity position time of day or medications you were taking or other factors if heart rate between 80 and 100 beats per minutes and no symptoms, no need to worry ...Read more
I've noticed that my pulse rate has become very slow recently - 50-60 bpm, is this something to be concerned about?
Last night I drink alchool and when I wake up my BPM was 116 and this pulse keep during the day. Is this an effect of alchool?
Get checked out: There are a couple reasons the heart rate can race after drinking too much alcohol. One is being dehydrated and a faster pulse is a normal response. The other, however, is an abnormal rhythm called atrial fibrillation. This rhythm can cause a fast and irregular pulse and requires medical treatment. If your pulse remains fast during the day, you should get medical attention. ...Read more
Take BP a couple of times daily and notice that pulse is only 55 BPM at times, don't take meds to lower hr, over weight, not phys. Fit, concerning?
Normal: Something is not a disease if there are no negative effects. If you can breathe, live, work, and do all your daily activities then you do not have a problem with this heart rate. There are enough real problems being a human can bring than worrying about something that just is. ...Read more

Low pulse rate. I am 37. Not in great shape. At rest it gets. Down in the low 50s bpm. Should I be concerned?
Sign of health: Actually, even though you consider yourself to be not in great shape, the slow pulse suggests you're better than you think. Heartrate is regulated by need and during rest, a slow hr is entirely normal so long as your metabolic need is normal as yours obviously is. A rapid resting rate is much more ominous. ...Read more
I'm 70 year old male and workout (ellipse) 30 min/day. Resting pulse of 45 bpm. Can I be compared to a well conditioned young athlete?
Yes: Unfortunately, to your detriment. 30 minutes a day is not near the conditioning you can accomplish as a young person. You are to be congratulated for keeping physically active, but at age 70 you are not turning back the the clock. ...Read more
Its my 1st period after medical termination n its vry light. Is it normal? My BP 125/85 and pulse 92 bpm. During my abortion (6wks bak) I bleeded 4 15 day
Can be normal.: Your endometrium/uterine lining may not have built up as thickly as usual after your abortion so it's certainly possible that this is just a light period. However if you've had unprotected intercourse, this could also be a pregnancy and you should get tested if that's the case. ...Read more
I am a 39 year old healthy person, taking levitra twice a week for the last 2 months, question: is it normal that levitra increased my pulse up to 113 BPM during sex and lasted like that for an hour or little bit more before pulse gets back to normal rate
Possible side effect:
Rapid heart beat is not a common side effect of vardenafil.
However it has been reported in up to 2% of patients reporting side effects. A pulse of 113 BPM during sex is not unusual but the fact that it lasted for one hour may be due to the Levitra or might possibly indicate an underlying heart problem. If you notice other strenuous activities causing similar symptoms see your physician. ...Read more
pulse BPM of 60-105, spO2 of 95-98%, peak flow 600-700. I know these numbers are normal, feel unable to breathe efficiently, lung/heart/PE problem?
Findings: The blood pressure and heart rate are fine. The heart rate is a bit slow if you're not an aerobic trainer but fine if you feel fine with it. Those data bits don't say anything else about other parts of your health. More information is needed to evaluate a person's total health picture. ...Read more
Seems: Excessive for someone your age for such low level of activity. If this is happening regularly, or the heart rate is not coming down within a few minutes of rest, you need to be evaluated as this could be due to some abnormal heart rhythm. Best wishes. ...Read more
I took my blood pressure and it happened to be 106/70 and my pulse is 57 bpm. Is this normal? Or should I be concerned?
A patient has a pulse of 75 bpm, an end-systolic volume of 120ml & and end-diastolic volume of 135ml. What would this suggest?
Sick!: Pulse of 75 is normal. End diastolic volume (edv) of 135 is about normal but the end systolic volume (esv) of 120 is high. This means that with every hear beat 15 cc gets put out (edv-esv), which is stroke volume (sv). Cardiac output is normally 4-5 l/min & this person is only 1.125 (svxhr), which is exceedingly low. ...Read more

Sitting down earlier and when I lay down to go to sleep sometimes pulse reads 41bpm with palpitations. Upon standing raises to 60-70 bpm. Problem?
No worry: Our heart rates usually slow down when we rest and increase with activity. If your heart rate is slow and you feel dizzy or ill, some intervention may be required. However, as in your case, if your heart rate returns to normal on rising or with activity, that's OK. ...Read more

Yes: Ideally you would like to maintain your HR sustained for 20 min at 149 BPM. That is 85% of maximal predicted. You are unlikely to do harm but there is no advantage to maintaining at 165. ...Read more
