What is my heart rate: slow, normal, or high? Do I have a heart arrhythmia?

Do you have a low or high heart rate? Is your heart rate ideal? For athletes, a heart rate below 60 per minute is normal and normal. Conversely, a heart rate above 100 per minute during sport or after excitement does not indicate illness. Is the rate regular or do you feel irregular heartbeats?

What is my heart rate: slow, normal, or high? Do I have a heart arrhythmia?

The pulse (heart rate) is an indication of the heart's activity. We can tell how fast our heart is working by it.

This is important for several reasons.

It is best to maintain a normal pulse. Low or high values are inappropriate.

Several factors affect heart rate, such as:

  • Age
  • gender
  • physical and mental stress, stress, fear or anxiety
  • trauma and bleeding
  • pain
  • increased body temperature
  • disease
  • medicines
  • stimulants, coffee, drugs, smoking

Abnormality does not necessarily mean disease. For example, athletes have a lower resting pulse. Their heart muscle is used to working and works at a lower frequency at rest.

A higher pulse occurs with physical activity, mental agitation or stress.

We don't normally feel the heart beating. The sensation of the heart beating is called palpitations. Palpitations can be related to physiological stimuli (e.g. stress, psychological) but can also be a symptom of heart rhythm disorders or other diseases.

What pulse values are low, normal and high?

Less than 60 = bradycardia, slow rate, low pulse.

Normal, euph frequency = 60 to 100 beats per minute.

High heart rate is 100 or more per minute = tachycardia, rapid activity.

Heart rate varies with age. In children it is higher even under normal physiological conditions.

When searching for information you may come across slight differences in values by publication and author.

Normal heart rate is considered to be:

  • newborn (up to day 28 of life): 140 to 180 beats per minute
  • infancy to 1 year: 110 to 160 beats per minute
  • a child under 10 years of age: approximately 90 to 140 beats per minute
  • adults: 60 to 100 beats per minute
