Heart beats otherwise known as heart rate is the number of times your heart beats and studies have shown that it's is usually different when you are resting and when you are engaging in an activity. Most health professionals use the resting heart rate to determine a person's state of health and to diagnose possible problems with the heart.
In this article in line with a publication on Cleveland Clinic, we are going to have a look at the number of times a healthy person's heart should beat in a minute. If you discover that your heart beat is unusually high even when you didn't engage in any major activity, consider seeing a doctor.
How Many Times Does A Healthy Person's Heart Beat In A Minute?
In order to make it more understandable, we are going to break it down based on age and stage in life because it varies;
1. For newborns i.e. from birth to 4 weeks old, the heart rate should be between 100 - 205 beats per minute.
2. For infants i.e. from 4 weeks to a year, the heart beat should be 100 - 180 beats per minute.
3. For toddlers i.e. 1 to 3 years, the heart rate should be 98 - 140 beats per minute
4. For preschool children who are aged between 3 to 5 years, the heart rate should be 80 - 120 beats per minute
5. For school age i.e. 5 to 12 years, the heart rate should be 75 - 118 beats
6. For adolescents 13 to 18 years, the heart rate should be 60 - 100 beats per minute
7. For adults, who are aged 18 and above the heart rate should be 60 - 100 beats per minute.
Anything above or below these could mean that something is wrong with the person's heart.
