How fast is fast. You need to learn to take your own pulse and that way you'll be able to monitor it better yourself. You can take your pulse either at your neck, or at your wrist. You neck is the easiest and strongest pulse to find.With your right hand, make a gun shape with two fingers. Now aim this 'gun' upside down at your adams apple . Now slide them towards the right (about 2-3cm), until they slide into a groove. Feel around and push a little deeper until you feel your pulse.
A 'normal' pulse is about 60-80 beats per minute (bpm)... their are wide ranges from a low as 30, to over 100. To count it, count how many beats occur in 30secs, and then double it for a bpm count.
All times are GMT -7. The time now is 10:03 AM.
