According to a new research, it was revealed that middle-age men who have resting heart rate of 75 beats per minute are likely to die early.
According to the research, hundreds of men whose resting rates were measured on two occasions over the span of 10 years were studied.
A resting heart rate is how quickly the heart beats when a person has been resting for at least five minutes according to news-medical.net. A rate between 50 to 100 bpm is said to be normal, but lower rates show better cardiovascular fitness and more efficient heart function.
Dr.Salim Barywani, the lead author of the study and his colleagues investigated the effect that a resting rate at the higher end of the scale had on long-term health and tendency for early death before 75 year
According to the research, it was found that a resting rate of 75 beats per minute or higher was linked with a two-fold increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease or coronary heart disease.
According to Barywani, monitoring patients’ resting heart rate may help to identify those who are at high risk of dieing early.
