What Is The Normal Heart Rate Bpm?
hello doc, for a normal heart rate for 23 years old is it bpm huh? and is checking with smartwacht accurate? I checked the initial 78 down to 59 and up again to 64bpm. Is this reasonable, doc?
Thank you for the question.
In healthy adults, the heart rate (or pulse rate) normally ranges from 60 to 100 times per minute. This heart rate illustrates the frequency of heart muscle contractions when pumping blood throughout the body. Checking the heart rate is quite easy, and can be done even by ordinary people. However, the accuracy of heart rate measurement using a smartwatch seems to have not been evaluated for accuracy. Therefore, to be more accurate, we recommend that you manually calculate your heart rate for 1 minute, namely by feeling the pulse in the wrist (radial artery) or in the neck (carotid artery). This pulse calculation, you should do at least in 2 different situations, namely at rest and after the activity, so that the difference can be compared.
Judging from the information you convey, if you have done the correct heart rate measurement, then it seems that your condition can still be said to be normal. A slight decrease in your heart rate, which is up to 59 times per minute, may be reasonable due to a calculation error or also because you are resting so that your heart's work also decreases.
In order not to hesitate, you can do a repeat heart rate measurement in the way we have mentioned above, then record and calculate the average, yes. on the chest, weakness, excessive sweating, fatigue, etc.
Hope this helps ...
