It's just the opposite... the higher the age the lower the heart rate. Here are the clinical averages, depending on the source these values may vary slightly, but generally they are similar. Preterm Newborn 140 bpm (beats per minute) Newborn (term) 125 bpm 6 months 120 bpm 1 year 120 bpm 3 years 110 bpm 6 years 100 bpm 8 years 90 bpm 10 years 90 bpm 12 years 85 bpm 14 years 80 bpm Adult 60-100 bpm (this is just average, athletes can have lower heartrates)
