Measuring your resting heart rate (RHR)--the number of times your heart beats per minute while you are at rest--can give you information about your current heart health, as well as potential problems you may be facing.
A study published in The BMJ found that women age 50 to 64 with the highest RHR (more than 76 beats per minute) were significantly more likely to suffer a coronary event than those with a lower RHR (62 beats per minute).
If you have heart disease, your RHR can predict the likelihood you may die from it or another heath issue.
"A high RHR is a sign of poor muscular heart function," says Tamara Horwich, MD, of UCLA's Division of Cardiology.
A study in The BMJ tracked cardiovascular health of about 3,000 men and discovered a high RHR was linked with lower physical fitness, and higher blood pressure, body weight, and levels of circulating blood fats.
The characteristics of renovascular hypertensive rats (RHR) and their corresponding controls at 4 weeks and 10 weeks after clipping the renal arteries or sham operation were shown in Table 2.
As expected, at the end of the experiment, 2K2C was associated with a significant increase in systolic BP, left ventricular weight index (LVW/BW) in RHR, indicating the development of pressure-overload hypertrophy (Table 2).
Specifically, appropriate piping was run to provide access to the RHRS
for introducing the solvent into the RCS and receiving the waste stream.
