Heart rate

Heart rate is defined as the number of times the hearts beats in one minute. The normal resting heart rate for adults is between 60 and 100 beats per minute.

Usually, heart rate may increase during exercise, due to rise in body temperature or during an emotional turmoil. But this increase is temporary.

However, in some conditions like tachychardia and bradychardia , the heart rate fails to revert to normal in resting condition.
