60-100 techically, but 60-80 is about the best. There is no set rate for a heart attack as the rate can change to either slower (bradycardia), faster (tachycardia) than normal, or be normal. Usually you'll find it to be a bit fast, caused by a release of adrenalin from being scared,

I am a 24 and a half year old white female with 3 children ages 4 and under. My heart rate is normally on the higher side when I am pregnant and that s pretty much the only time I ever check it. But I ve been checking it a lot the past few days and every time it s been between 101-109bpm. Even after just waking up after sleeping. Sometimes I do feel like my heart is racing. Is this something I should get checked out by a doctor?

I am 59 and i working cutting trees for a campground for the summer. We are at 6000 ft. in the mountains. My heat rate at rest is 50 to 80. When i start work my rate is around 110 doing light work cutting. When i start picking up the log. the logs are 4ft long and very in weight 40 to 80 pounds. Most of the time i am going up and down hills. My rate will go up to 145 and sometimes as high as 169. but as soon as i put the log down my rate drops with in 3 to 5 mins to 110 again. Is this dangers to me. By the way my blood pressure is around 130 /80 my weight is 225.

My brother is having a heart cath tomorrow. Apparently he has had a heart attack sometime in the last ten years.

His heart rate has become uncontrollable with meds and sontinues to beat at 131. He said the doctor told him some rate (he couldn't remember) was at 25 and should be higher. Can you perhaps clarify what this may mean?

I have been prescribed isoptin 240 ml per day as my blood pressure has been up to 165 over 93. Also I have been getting palpitation which at times last up to a couple of hours. Had a heart monitor put on . showed my heart rate going up to 114. resting at about 66. Which I know is good. the results of the monitor showed over 2000 ectopic episodes. Is this anything to worry about.
