Beats and Breath Calculator

Heart beat

Heartbeat (heart sound) is heard when the heart valves (bicuspid, tricuspid, aortic and pulmonary) close causing the blood to flow in the appropriate direction. Irregular heartbeat, also called arrhythmia is a condition in which the heart beats too slow (bradycardia) or too fast (tachycardia) or with an abnormal rhythm.

To know this you will need a watch your pulse with a second hand.

  • Place your index and middle finger of your hand on the inner wrist of the other arm, just below the base of your thumb. You should feel a tapping or pulse against your fingers.
  • Count the number of taps you feel in 10 seconds.
  • Multiply that number by 6 times to find out your heart rate for 1 minute.
  • Pulse in 10 seconds * 6 = number of beats per minute (your heart rate).
  • When feeling your pulse, you can also tell if your heart rhythm is regular or not.
