What Is a Dangerous Heart Rate?

BY TEAM FOURTH FRONTIER DESK

The normal pulse or heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute (BPM), recorded when you’re not exercising. It is known as resting heart rate.

Your heart rate is considered dangerous when it is below 60 beats per minute or above 100 beats per minute, recorded when you are at rest.

Your heart rate changes throughout the day to accommodate the demands of your body.

You will notice that your heart rate is higher during times of intense activity (such as exercise) and lowest when a person relaxes or sleeps.

There are other factors - physical or emotional, that could increase your heart rate.

You should seek medical attention when you experience reduced or elevated heart rate with dizziness, blackouts or chest pain.
