How to deal with a heart condition and fast heart rate of a 15 year old?

Heart condition?: We need more information. Does the young person have a diagnosed heart condition? What is it? How fast is the heart rate? Does it occur at rest, with minimal or marked activity? Does he/she become faint or dizzy with it? How long does it last? Are there accompanying symptoms? Are there other medical issues? On any meds? ...Read more

What's an average resting heart rate for a 15 year old boy?

What's an average resting heart rate for a 15 year old boy?

Probably 50-70: Depends on how much exercise /physical activity he gets. But a true resting hr for the average adolescent male probably runs 50-70. For those who do sports, it can be lower, into the 40's. I grew up playing competitive sports, and at that age through my early 20's mine was about 40-42. If its considerably faster, say 90 or greater, I would seen by a pediatric cardiologist. ...Read more

When I exercise, my heart rate goes between 160-175bpm. Is this too high for a 37 year old woman? Target heart rate calc says 146 maximum.

When I exercise, my heart rate goes between 160-175bpm. Is this too high for a 37 year old woman? Target heart rate calc says 146 maximum.

Depends: A formula widely accepted is 220-age=maximum heart rate. Keep in mind though that this is a simplistic formula with age as the only variable and standard deviation for this equation is 10 to 15 bpm. Target heart rates for aggressive cardioconditioning are generally recommended at 80% of your calculated maximum for a healthy individual. See your first GP to discuss any possible contraindications ...Read more

Of the numerous heart rate zone conditioning formulas. Who's formula do you feel is the most productive for a male 46 year old amateur athlete?

Of the numerous heart rate zone conditioning formulas. Who's formula do you feel is the most productive for a male 46 year old amateur athlete?

General rules below: Consider exercising for a sustained period of time (20-40 minutes) at 60-70% of your maximum heart rate. One formula we use is 220-age. So for you, 220-46 =174. 174 x 0.6 = 104. 174 x 0.7 = 122. So, strive to keep your heart rate between 104 and 122. ...Read more

Likely odd: If only one time, then probably an oddity. You should be watching your heart rate monitor. Be sure you are properly recovered each set. Should only do these 1 x week. Mix easy distance in with the week's plan. What is the goal and your background? May ask running club for advice, or coach. Good luck. (USAT Level I certified coach) ...Read more

Is a heart rate of 65 bad for a 17 year old male?

Is a heart rate of 65 bad for a 17 year old male?

Resting heart rate: Normal resting heart rate may be quite different among healthy individuals. 65 is normal, but "bad" or "good" resting heart rate is not very meaningful. Often very fit athletes will have a slower resting heart rate but not always. Heart rate beat to beat variability is a little more informative about cardiovascular fitness. ...Read more

Depends: If this is your resting/sleeping heart rate you likely have a problem that should be evaluated. If this is what you count while you obsess /worry about your health, it may just reflect your anxiety. Caffeine and nicotine products can drive up your rate. Your heart can tolerate this rate without damage. ...Read more

What is the normal heart rate for a 14 year old male while and while not exercising?

What is the normal heart rate for a 14 year old male while and while not exercising?

SSS: Normal heart rate at rest is between 60 and 70 beats per minute. In very fit individuals, it may be as low as 40 BPM without any symptoms of weakness or dizziness. Some arrhythmias may cause the hr to vary from very slow to very fast and beta blockers can be used cautiously to help regulate the rate. Sometimes they are uses in conjunction with a pacemaker which allows their use without slowing hr. ...Read more

How much should your heart rate increase from sitting to standing at 21 year old male?

Less than 10: Change in position triggers the carotid baroreceptors to gently change hr in order to stabilize BP from effects of gravity. Normal bp/hr fluctuations should be less than 10 points unless dehydrated, over medicated, or suffering from neurally mediated dysfunction (abnormal reflex arc between the baroreceptors, the brainstem, and the heart). ...Read more

Hoping you can tell me, is heart rate of 49 beats per minute healthy for a 20 year old?

Depends: A heart rate of less than 60 is called bradycardia, and it is usually considered low. However, certain things can affect this, including medications you may be on which affect heart rate (if you're on any). Another thing is that if you are physically active and physically fit, your heart tends to be healthier and beat slower, which is normal. ...Read more

I know a ten year old, female who has taccicardia. Her heart rate has reached 200. Could this be dangerous for her?

Tachycardia is..: Usually not life threatening in a child with an otherwise normal heart. They may not feel well when it happens, however. Treatment is available in the form of daily medication, or a catheter-based procedure called an ablation to try and eliminate the abnormal rhythm. I recommend her parents find a pediatric electrophysiologist in your area, who would have expertise in these issues. ...Read more

I'm a 30 year old male. After walking a mile and walking up 4 flights of stairs my heart rate is 140 bpm. Is that normal?

I'm a 30 year old male. After walking a mile and walking up 4 flights of stairs my heart rate is 140 bpm. Is that normal?

I think not abnormal: At 30 years old your max heart rate (HR) is approx 220 minus age= 190. During stress test a person is expected to reach 85% or more, so that is 161bpm. In average test a person walks about 1/2 mile in 10 mins, at average incline of ~14deg. U walked a mile & 4 flights of stairs, so 140 sounds OK. To see If good shape pay attn to how fast HR is back to 80 at rest. Good if this ...Read more

5'9 290 pounds. Resting heart rate of 45-55 ok for a 23 year old who lives a very sedimentary life? My heart really starts to pound at 135bpm or so.

Decinditioned or OSA: I suspect that you are at the very least, out of shape, but you may have sleep apnea. I see pts of your size w/ similar heart rate ranges and are found w/ sleep apnea. If you have sx of fatigue, headaches, shortness of breath or chest pain, sleep apnea is more likely than deconditioning. I suggest speaking to ur PCP about having a sleep study. If PCP okays it, start diet and exercise ...Read more

Greetings: I am 60 year old male, 5' 9" 170 lbs. I work out 5 times a week. My resting heart rate is 75. How can I lower this number? Thanks. Robert

Within normal range: Resting hr at 75 is in the middle of normal range, so does not require adjustment.
If desired lower resting hr, typically athletes with good cardiovascular tone have lower resting heart rates, so may consider altering your intensity or type of exercise.
Good luck. ...Read more

I am a 45 year old male. My restin heart rate is 42-44bpm. When running a 3 mile sub 6 min/mile pace my max heart rate touched 205bpm. Is this normal?

Probably not: The maximum predicted heart rate for someone your age is 175. That's not hard and fast but 205 sounds suspicious. You should undergo a treadmill stress test and see if you can reproduce that hr on cardiac monitoring. If not, you should wear a 30 day event monitor. ...Read more
