What Is the Right Heart Rate?
According to the experts, the normal heart rates in rest of each of the age groups are:
- Children (ages 6 - 15) 70 100 beats per minute.
- Adults (age 18 and over) 60 100 beats per minute
How To Lower Heart Rate?
Although, it is suggested to rush a person to a nearby hospital immediately when the heart rate goes up. But during this time gap, one can perform this activity to keep the heart rate under control (till the time the patient reaches hospital).
- Close your mouth and nose and raise the pressure in your chest, like you're stifling a sneeze.
- Breathe in for 5-8 seconds, hold that breath for 3-5 seconds, then exhale slowly.
- Repeat several times. Raising your aortic pressure in this way will lower your heart rate.
