What Does A 91 Bpm Pulse Mean
It depends: It all really depends on the context of the exercise, and how soon after exercise finishes.

I had a set of orthos done; my BP remained the same but pulse went up quite a bit. What could this mean?
Dehydration.: Orthostatic vital signs are performed to assess the hear rate and BP response to various postures - laying and standing generally. If a person is dehydrated there is typically a 15+ point rise in the pulse rate and a 15 point fall in the BP with standing. These are "loose" figures and some will argue for a more strict or loose standard, but the general principle is as noted. ...Read more

If you're slow during exercise, you have a problem, see your doctor. If you're slow after exercise, you're a seasoned athlete. ...Read more
Nothing: Most patients have "low cardiac awareness, " meaning that they can't feel their heart beating normally. Anyone can be trained to take their pulse by feeling the (radial) artery at the wrist, or by gently feeling the carotid artery in the neck. The feeling of the pulse in those locations is generated by the (normal) heartbeat. Not feeling your heart beating in the chest is normal. ...Read more
