Pulse rate or heart rate chart helps you to find out the recommended pulse rate for your age. This calculator covers the average pulse rate for all age groups including that of the unborn fetus.
Pulse rate is counted by putting slight pressure on any section of the body where the artery is close to the skin and where the pulsations can be felt. The most convenient location is the radial section of the wrist (radial pulse). Other locations include side of the neck (carotid pulse), groin (femoral pulse) or side of the feet (Posterior tibial artery pulse).
|How to count the pulse rate at the wrist?
- Turn the hand with palm-side facing up
- Place your index finger and middle finger just below the thumb
- Exert slight pressure with the index and second finger against the wrist bone
- Count the pulse for 30 seconds using a watch or clock and multiply this number by 2
