Atenolol (Definition)

Atenolol is a relatively long-acting (24 hours) beta-blocker. Beta-blockers as a group of medications calm or slow the heart rate down. They stop the swings in hr from stress or nerves. If someone is on a good dose of a beta-blocker and are startled, the medication suppresses the pounding of your heart. It also won't allow the hr to climb with exercise. It's used to ...Read more

Is 81 bmp a safe heart rate? Not resting heart rate.

Is 81 bmp a safe heart rate? Not resting heart rate.

I think so: I think ur asking if a heart rate of 81 when you are not resting (so perhaps after you exercise?) is a safe rate; if that's correct then yes 81 is probably fine. A "normal" heart rate varies depending on lots of things (age, activity, emotions, meds, hydration status, more). In general the better shape you're in, the lower your rate goes. And with vigorous exercise it can go up much higher than 81. ...Read more

Blood Pressure: 117/68
Resting Heart Rate Sitting: 75bpm - 85bpm
Exercise everyday.  Friend's sitting resting heart: 70bpm - 75bpm why? Heart Disease?

Variation: There can be a lot of variation between individuals resting heart rates. In general, the more "fit" you are cardiovascular wise, the lower your resting heart rate will be; so you friend may be a bit more "fit" than you. But in reality that's a very small difference and if many factors may contribute to day to day variations. Neither of those heart rate ranges suggest "heart disease". ...Read more

What's a normal resting heart rate?

What's a normal resting heart rate?

A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute: Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. For example, a well-trained athlete might have a normal resting heart rate closer to 40 beats a minute. To measure your heart rate, simply check your pulse. Place your index and third fingers on your neck to the side of your windpipe. To check your pulse at your wrist, place two fingers between the bone and the tendon over your radial artery — which is located on the thumb side of your wrist. When you feel your pulse, count the number of beats in 15 seconds. Multiply this number by 4 to calculate your beats a minute. Keep in mind that many factors can influence heart rate, including: Activity level, Fitness level, Air temperature, Body position (standing up or lying down, for example), Emotions, Body size, Medications. Although there's a wide range of normal, an unusually high or low heart rate may indicate an underlying problem. Consult your doctor if your resting heart rate is consistently above 100 beats a minute (tachycardia) or if you're not a trained athlete and your resting heart rate is below 60 beats a minute (bradycardia) — especially if you have other signs or symptoms, such as fainting, dizziness or shortness of breath. ...Read more

Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?

Resting heart rate of 99bpm, after exercise, my heart rate is 120bpm but goes back to 99bpm. Ekg is normal. See cardiologist?

Heart rate: At your age a low heart rate of 99 is a little unusual. Your primary md could start your evaluation with an ekg. I would also consider a non cardiac cause such as hyperthyroidism or anemia. I would also think you can achieve a much higher rate than 120. You didn't mention how hard you were exercising. ...Read more
