Pulse is in every person, its performance related to the work of the heart muscle and have a different rule for all ages. In the average healthy human heart rate at rest should be equal to 60-80 beats in 1 minute.
Different age groups have different norms heart rate at rest. It depends also on gender rights. For newborns it – 140 beats / min, for children from birth to one year – 130 beats / min, age period of one to two years – 100 beats / min, from three to seven years – 95 beats / min, from eight to fourteen years – 80 beats / min.
For middle-aged men normal heart rate – 60-80 beats / min for women – 65-90 beats / min. In elderly normal heart rate is about 65 beats / min. If a person is sick, his heart rate increased to 120-150 beats / min.
pulse in healthy person is high during the day. Lowering the frequency value in the morning and late evening.
Usually the condition is determined by pulse probing fingers of the right hand (middle, index and ring) radial artery, which is located on the left hand. This artery can be easily found if placed horizontally thumb at the wrist, below the first fold formed leather wrist.
It is not necessary to count the number of beats per minute, can be limited to 30 seconds and then multiplying this by 2.
In addition to the number of beats per minute is considered equally important and heart rate for each respiratory cycle (breath, pause, breath). Normally, such a cycle must account for four to six beats of the pulse. If the pulse is less or more, it means a violation of functional organs and gives cause for seeking medical help.
An important indicator of the health of the body is a uniform rate. In a healthy person it should be equal in fullness, strength, tension over 100 beats. The uneven heart rate data indicates disease.
If alone or with a small load pulse rate and reaches over one hundred beats per minute, a condition called tachycardia and required medical examination.
The low heart rate – less than 50 beats per minute indicate bradycardia and also require medical examination.
Painfully slow and weak pulse may indicate heart failure. This condition is life threatening and requires emergency care.
When you exercise heart rate increases. The maximum number of heart rate (reduced heart rate) in this case is determined by the following formula: in which 220 – age = maximum heart rate of man. So, for example if you exercise and you, 30 years old, the pulse in the classroom should not be more than 190 digits Within 10 minutes after the load pulse parameters should come back to normal.
