- Echocardiogram: Also known as a cardiac echo, this test uses sound waves to take pictures of your heart.
- Holter monitor : You wear this monitor for at least 24 hours while you go about your normal activities. It allows your doctor to track changes in your heart’s rhythm throughout the day.
- Stress test: For this test, your doctor will make you walk or jog on a treadmill to see how exercise affects your heart.
A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. For example, a well-trained athlete might have a normal resting heart rate closer to 40 beats per minute.
- Previous heart conditions, or a family history of heart conditions
- Being overweight
- Living a sedentary lifestyle
- A diet high in fats, cholesterol, and other unhealthy foods
- High blood pressure or other health problems
- Excessive use of alcohol (more than two drinks per day)
- Drug misuse

The heart rate is the number of times the heart beats in a minute. This is the number of times it pumps to push blood round the body. The heart rhythm is the pattern in which the heart beats. It may be described as regular or irregular, or fast or slow.
The normal pulse for healthy adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. The pulse rate may fluctuate and increase with exercise, illness, injury, and emotions. Females ages 12 and older, in general, tend to have faster heart rates than do males.
