Explanation Of The Normal Pulse Condition?
Dear Doctor, Good morning before noon. I want to ask you one thing about pulse per minute, in the article HealthReplies.com it is mentioned that normal pulse should be 50 to 70 at rest. The question is what is meant by “rest” during sleep? or when lying down or while sitting in a chair while watching tv is possible. Thank you in advance for enlightenment. Regards, Andi
Thank you for the question.
The pulse is produced by pulsation of arteries that drain oxygen-rich blood from the heart throughout the body. As with heartbeats, the normal pulse rate is in the range of 60 to 100 times per minute. The assumption that the normal pulse should be in the range of 50 to 70 times per minute actually is still a lot of accuracy until now, and has not been agreed upon by most experts.
The normal range of pulse above actually applies both when you are resting and in heavy physical activity. What is meant by rest here is a condition where you do not do heavy physical activities, such as walking far away, exercising, cleaning the house, and so on. Sleeping, lying down, or sitting relaxed also includes resting conditions. At rest, the pulse tends to be lower, but still within normal limits, because the heart's work is also lighter. Conversely, when you have heavy physical activity, the heart's work will increase, and your pulse will also increase. Not only activity, this pulse can also be influenced by your psychological condition, your exercise habits, medications consumed, illnesses suffered, eating habits, and so on.
Furthermore, you should consult back to the doctor or internal medicine doctor ...
I hope this helps.
