Low BPM

I'm just wondering if anyone has experience of low heart rate, I recorded this after doing some exercise this morning and am a bit worried. I don't think I've seen my heart beat rate fall as low as this before. Can't get in to see my doctor so I'm considering going private. Any suggestions would be welcome...

Oh dear Foxy that is very low. I would ring 111. Do you feel dizzy or anything?

Re: Low BPM

Hi Bob how do you feel, are you dizzy or feeling faint?

A low heart rate is not unusual for those who are fit and excercise regularly also the battery in your device looks low?

If in doubt ring 111 as LQ suggests.

I have a low heart rate 35-45 caused by my medication but it doesn't produce symptoms .

Re: Low BPM

Foxy I seem to recall that you had a heart problem once, so I assume they have prescribed some medication. I know that beta blockers can seriously lower your heart beat, but if you don't have medication phone 111 . They can arrange for a doctor to speak to you and tell you whether you need to go to A&E.
It may be nothing serious but it is better to find out now rather than worrying about it!

Wise words from May, apparently dehydration may lower your heartbeat!
I know it isn't very hot, but you are bound to sweat when running, so make sure you have water to drink when you go for a run.

Re: Low BPM

Years ago I was to have an operation for a detatched retina and during prep they suddenly started doing ECG and getting people checking my heart. It only stopped when the nurse asked me if I was particularly fit and I told them I didn't know but that I cycled 28kms to and from work each day.

All the tests were abandoned and I was wheeled in for the op but I was told later by the nurse it was because my resting heart rate was very low which meant I was either on my last legs or very fit.

So OGF just hope it is the latter

Re: Low BPM

Blimey Bob & I thought I was bradychardic with a pulse that rarely goes above 50, but 35 after exercise doesn't seem right.

As said, check again to see if it remains low and if it is & your GP won't see you then it's time to phone 111.
Even if your heart rate is back to your normal again I would be keeping an eye on it regularly over the next few days.

Hello
Double check with another tester.( might be faulty,try new batteries as well ).
I use my blood pressure meter to crosscheck my bpm with my o2 meter.They're usually one or two beats out.
cheers.
