Normal pulse is extremely important, so monitoring heart beats should be done regularly, is one of the fundamental investigations to detect possible cardiac problems.
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, both for women and men. Although these are very serious, they can be detected early through a series of simple and easy-to-follow investigations, such as blood pressure measurement and heart listening, to detect possible heart rhythm disturbances.
On the other hand, in order to maintain the normal pulse, we must start measuring it, an activity that is not very often done by most of us but which has an important role in detecting health problems and in preventing stroke death stroke (stroke). I have previously presented in detail how to measure the pulse and what the normal pulse should be.
Normal pulse and diseases associated with increased or too low pulse
In many cases, if you do not have a normal pulse, it is not necessarily a cause for concern. When you notice an increased or too low pulse, keep in mind that pulse frequency varies from person to person, and there may be small variations that do not necessarily illustrate a heart problem. Usually the pulse is influenced by: Physical activities undertaken, gender, age and general health, but not only. Thus, the pulse increases to any excitement and effort and it is normal to be larger in these cases. However, when the body is at rest, you do not have to experience the same oscillations, and they can indicate the suspicion of a heart disease.
Not in all cases a lower pulse is a sign of concern. For example, in the case of a person suffering from heart disease, a lower pulse is to his advantage, because this means less effort on the part of the heart. In the case of an athlete, the heart beats slower than normal, and that’s because his heart is stronger and does not have to work as much to push the blood into the body, writes telegraph.co.uk.
But in the case of a healthy person the smaller pulse becomes an alarm signal. Small pulse can be accompanied by a series of symptoms such as discomfort, feeling of airlessness, fainting.
If the pulse is higher than normal in the resting state, the person has a ringing in the ear or throat pulses, breathing accelerates and experiences headaches and even fainting.
Increased or too small pulse: Health problems that you can face
Increased pulse may indicate certain health problems: arrhythmia, tachycardia, bradycardia, and other conditions. Detecting these conditions is vital because they can lead to heart failure or stroke, two life-threatening issues.
One of the most feared heart diseases is heart failure, a condition that is more and more common, even among young people. This translates into the inability of the heart muscle to pump the necessary amount of blood into the body. Heart failure is manifested by a series of less common symptoms that can be easily confused with other health problems, among them: lack of concentration, bloating, frequent nighttime urination, chronic fatigue, heart rhythm disorders and so on
If you notice that you do not have the normal pulse and that you have an unusual symptom that makes you worry about the proper functioning of your heart, it is best to go to a medical consultation. Your doctor may choose to make an electrocardiogram (ECG) that can diagnose heart rhythm disorders.
