Do good blood oxygen levels indicate a healthy heart?

Do good blood oxygen levels indicate a healthy heart?

Good enough: Normal blood oxygen saturation levels means nothing is immediately broken. That doesn't mean everything is in tip top shape.

I'm supposed to know what a healthy heart rate is after exercise, and also know what isn't healthy.

I'm supposed to know what a healthy heart rate is after exercise, and also know what isn't healthy.

220-age = max: During exercise, the target is 70 to 80% of ur maximum heart rate, which is 220-ur age (e.g., a 40 yr old has a theoretical max HR of 180 bpm, & 80% of that is 144 bpm). Anything above the max is not healthy if u r not used to exercising. 15 min after exercise (complete rest), ur HR should drop back down to less than 100 bpm. Anything above that means something's not healthy. TTYD or cardiologist ...Read more

Does ejection fraction vary in a healthy heart? Was told my EF was "normal and stable" but in the written reports it's anywhere from 53-67 over 6 months. How is low-normal to 67 stable?

Does ejection fraction vary in a healthy heart? Was told my EF was "normal and stable" but in the written reports it's anywhere from 53-67 over 6 months. How is low-normal to 67 stable?

EF: Ejection fraction varies with the loading conditions of the heart. It also varies by the method used to measure it. As long as its consistently in the normal range, no particular concern. It will almost never be reproducibly the same number in the same person. ...Read more

What is a healthy heart rate?

What is a healthy heart rate?

Generally: Hi. Healthy pulse for normal healthy people is 50's to low 80's at rest. It's important to make sure it's assessed at rest. Pulse increases with activity, and that's normal. While medical textbooks say a normal resting pulse is 60-100, that's not correct. No healthy person has a resting pulse in the high 80's or 90's. Peace and good health. ...Read more

What is a healthy heart rate while exercising? Mine reaches between 174 and 195.

What is a healthy heart rate while exercising? Mine reaches between 174 and 195.

May want to ease up: a little bit. 100-170 beats per minute is approximately 50-85% of your maximal heart rate (known as target heart rate). Your maximum heart rate is calculated by 220 minus your age which it looks like you are close to reaching when you are exercising which means you are probably pushing a little too hard. ...Read more

What would be a good healthy heart rate for a 53 yr old just doing daily activities? RHR 50s/60s. Is upper 90s-lower 100s too high?

What would be a good healthy heart rate for a 53 yr old just doing daily activities?  RHR 50s/60s. Is upper 90s-lower 100s too high?

Max HR based on age: When we perform stress tests, we generally try to obtain as close to maximum as possible calculated as 220 minus your age so for you: that would be 167. I tell my patients that they should achieve at least 85% of maximum during maximal effort and to ease down once that heart rate is achieved. As one becomes more conditioned, it takes longer to achieve that peak heart rate ...Read more
