Research has shown that healthcare professionals often rely on the resting heart rate to assess a person's overall health and identify potential heart-related issues.
In accordance with a publication from Cleveland Clinic, this article aims to provide insight into the normal range of heartbeats per minute for a healthy individual. According to healthline If you notice that your heart rate is unusually high, even when you haven't engaged in significant physical exertion, it is advisable to seek medical attention.
