Heart Rate 60x Per Minute Even Though You Rarely Exercise?
I want to ask if the normal heart rate is in the range of 60 to 65 per minute for people who never or very rarely exercise ?? Does that indicate abnormalities in the heart?
Hello Agung, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
The number of normal heart rates for each individual varies from individual to individual because it depends on age, body size, heart condition, sitting or moving activity, drug effects or body temperature, and emotions. The number of heartbeats per minute at rest is age 1 month (70-190), age 1-11 months (80-160), age 1-2 years (80-130), age 3-4 years (80-120), age 5-6 yrs (75-115), 7-9 yrs (70-110), adults (60-100). For athletes or sportsmen, heart rate can be less than 60 times per minute or about 40 times per minute.
A heart rate that is more than 100 times per minute at rest, usually occurs in cases of heart with SVT or supraventricular tachycardia, while a heart rate less than 60 times per minute is called bradycardia.
If the heart rate is between 60 -65 times per minute, people who never exercise are a normal condition, but if you complain of weakness, chest pain, cold sweat, you should check with your doctor for a physical examination whether the pulse is regular or irregular. the doctor will also perform supporting examinations such as heart records, blood checks, and chest x-rays. The pulse is around 60-65 times per minute but your condition has no complaints whatsoever, you don't need to worry.
