pulse- rate, normal speed and Things that affect your pulse rate

Pulse rate definitionEach heartbeat generates one pulse in the arteries, so the pulse rate of a person is equal to the number of heartbeats per minute so the heartbeat is about 70-72 / minute and the pulse rate of an adult while resting is about 70-72/  minute. so the pulse rate is the same as the heart rate. While counting the pulse of an individual, many things have to be taken into consideration. the speed of the pulse, fast or weakness of the beats, and regularity of the pulse motion.

The pulse rate 

  • Age,
  • Blood volume transmitted in the body,
  • Physical work,
  • Emotional state,
  • The uses of medicines,
  • Body infections.

The normal speed of the pulse

  • Babies in 120 to 140 beats per minute,
  • In children 80 to 90 beats per minute,
  • 60 to 80 beats per minute in the elderly.

Things that affect your pulse rate

  • Bodywork:  Increases pulse rate, due to the hard work, makes the heart more work, due to which its beating goes up. When the person rests or sleeps, instead of getting up, instead of raising his river speed, work is done - that is because his heart does not have to work much harder.
  • Fear, excitement, or anger increases the pulse speed.
  • Some medicines: increases the speed of the B-pulse.
  • Infections: Usually the body temperature increases. (Fever) according to the speed of the pulse increases.
  • The decrease of blood volume (such as bleeding) increases the pulse speed.

Site for measuring your pulse

Most of the arteries lie deep inside our body, therefore, they can not be used to feel the pulse. we can feel the pulse at the wrist, temple, and neck.

The pulse can be felt by pressing the upper artery on the top of any artery, in many parts of the body. Usually, the pulse is taken from the radial artery to see the pulse. But if the pulse can not be seen with the radial artery, then other places of the body can be used to count the pulse. These places are as follows,
  • On the wrist,
  • On both sides of the front part of the neck,
  • In front of the elbow.

Strength of the pulse
: If you press any bone in the artery below the skin then you can feel the river, a pulse is strong or weak, it reacts to how much blood is transmitting in the body while counting the pulse, How is the condition of the heart and how much elasticity is in the blood vessels. If there is a lot of bleeding or bleeding in the body of a person, or if there is a blood transfusion in Hirda or when there is a disease in Hidaya, it appears weak and delicate, while usually, every heartbeat is strong.

Being tied in the rhythm of the pulse: Being tied in the rhythm of the pulse means the difference between the two beats. There is a slight difference between the two beats in the normal rhythm. Between the two beats, there is usually more or less time to mean that the heart has become a disease.

Method for counting your Pulse: The pulse is felt by pressing the base of the thumb with its first three fingers. Count the number of beats for one minute by holding the clock in your second hand and looking at the clock. As well as counting the pulse, observe the strength and regularity of the beats (with equal distinction).

Write the motion of the pulse to the patient's card and keep writing it whenever there is any change in its strength or regularity.
