Low blood pressure, fast heart rate?Watch
So, low BP=higher HR and conversely, high BP=lower HR.
PS. but remember that HR can also be altered by any other similar mechanisms not involving the HR-BP feedback system, e.g. eventho you’re fully ‘hydrated’ (high BP), you may still feel nervous (increasing HR) coz ur pancreas releases epinephrine while you’re in dangerous situation/when ure afraid.
I thought they would contradict each other? Getting an ECG soon which is always fun. Smart people, please explain what the difference is between BP and heart rate? I had no interest until the nurse freaked and redid the test three times then checked manually incase the machine was messing up
How detailed would you like? We can go organ system, hormones, microscopic, nervous system!
BP and HR are connected in many ways, and as said they usually do go up when one goes down. However there are many ways this relationship is disrupted, therefore it is not simply "low BP, high HR" etc.
Young women tend to have a low HR (around 60, but even 50 is acceptable depending on the trend), but they may also have low BP (hence some faint)
Physically fit people tends to have a low HR too, but their BP may well be normal. Each stroke of the heart can pump more blood than a non-physically fit person.
I can go into much, much more detail but surely it will bore you!
